I bought a new laptop one week ago,this works both as a laptop and a tablet.  i found that it was having two disk drives, c drive and d drive. windows is installed on c drive that is about 29 GB, which is very small, so i created an unallocated space of about 200GB to extend the volume of c (using easeUs and Mini Tool). but c was unable to extend. then I decided to install windows 10 on D drive. (that is slightly bigger about 200 GB) when i inserted the installation media, it gave this error that (Setup does not support configuration of or installation to disks connected through a USB or IEEE 1394 port)

 

any solution please ???????  Attached File  Untitled picture.png   355.96KB   0 downloads

According to your screenshot, it looks like have two separate disk drives. A small 32 GB "Disk 0", which is probably a SSD [solid-state drive]) and then another "Disk 1" which is a 500 GB spinner (an old-style hard disk drive [HDD] with spinning platters and reciprocating heads).

What this means is:

1) The SSD is extremely fast, and much more expensive when compared to an old HDD. Because of this,  you want to keep the Windows Operating System installed here so the computer will boot up faster, as well as give you snappier performance by the Operating System.

2) Since the HDD is so much larger (for a lot less money than a SSD) you can install all of your programs on this drive as well as store all of your personal files here.

3) Windows cannot combine these two drives ("Disk 0" and "Disk 1") into a single partition.

 

"Disk 1" could be a single partition with one drive letter, instead of the three it's currently using.

That is exactly as you said... but the problem is that this time only windows 10 is installed on C; and nothing else, still there is only 1.2 GB space available on C that is making my pc very slow,  while still I need to install lots of other applications like( visual studio, joomla, dev c, any of the antivirus programme, few games like need for speed, delta force, IgI and many more ...) so all of these applications are installed on that drive where operating system is installed and these require alot of space on system drive whiich is not available this time, so what can be the possible solution for this problem ????????????

That C: drive is plenty big for Windows 10, you shouldn't have any problems at all with an SSD of 32 GB for a systems installation.

So if operating system is installed on C: and all the other applications and games are installed on D:, will the system and other applications work correctly????

Yes, that is how many people do it.
