You should download Microsoft's Media Creation Tool and use it to create a USB Windows 10 Install Media.  You'll need a USB thumb drive that's at least 4 GB.  I used an 8 GB drive, and Windows shows 3.5 GB used on it. With that you can always reinstall Windows if that becomes necessary. 

I bought a second BeeBox and configured it with the same added hardware as the first.  I skipped the Macrium Reflect step of cloning the eMMC drive to the SSD drive.  My first step was to boot Windows from the eMMC drive to make sure the product activation took place.  I don't know if that's necessary, but it seemed prudent to do before deleting partitions.  I also jotted down the product activation key just in case.  I used Windows to initialize the SSD, since it did not show up in the BIOS (UEFI) at first.  Then I booted from the USB Windows 10 Install Drive I had created previously.  I had to delete all partitions on both the eMMC and initialized SSD drive before it allowed me to proceed with the install.  It defaulted to installing on the SSD, which is what I wanted.  The Windows 10 install proceeded without incident.  I was not asked for the product activation key.
