According to ThinkPad E580 Platform Specifications there are two drive bays, one M.2 for  PCIe NVMe SSD and one SATA for 2.5" HDD or SSD. One or the other will come with a drive installed, either M.2 SSD or 2.5" HDD, depending on which E50 sub-model you buy.

 

If you order a model with M.2 SSD then you can use the 2.5" bay to add a SATA SSD. If you order a model with 2.5" HDD you can add an M.2 SSD. In both cases you can install Win10 on the added drive then change the boot sequence to use that drive instead of the original drive.

You can install Windows 10 from a USB.

You can make an Windows 10 installation USB with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool program.
