1. in the search bar of the menu, enter 'GParted' - it should show up almost instantly. - Launch it.
2. Go to Menu | Accessories | Screenshot and take a picture of the GParted window, save it as a .jpg and post it here - to do that see my tutorial video here (which needs updating I know):

OK, I see you have emmc notebook - please be aware that these machines can have an extremely short lifespan (have just read where one person's died after only 9 months!). The best solution I can offer you is this:

When you have saved up some money, get a notebook with a hard drive, even a decent second hand one. ;) :D

Hi, I am now getting stuck as I don't know much about emmc but from the City Forum where I live, someone bought one in error and did not know why they could not install a game for their child. They are extremely limited kit and all I can think of is that the BIOS or the emmc chip is harwired to only accept Windows 10. I'm afraid I can't think of anything else apart from a different post which said something about disabling CSM in the BIOS and turning off UEFI? :(

If you can boot to BIOS there should be either EFI or Legacy boot mode available, but I suspect because it is emmc motherboard it will be locked - I could be wrong - also check to see if there is mixed mode (Efi/Legacy)
