Have you been playing with the settings inside the BIOS?
- Unscrew the bottom cover of the laptop
- Unplug the main battery connector from the motherboard
- Wait for 30 minutes before plugging the battery back in, assemble the laptop again
This procedure will guarantee a stock reset of the BIOS settings, and it’s the only guaranteed way (using the BIOS itself often doesn’t fully reset all settings for whatever reason). If you continue to get the error with a BIOS reset, this means you’ve a hardware fault and should send the laptop back to the seller.April 27, 2019 at 9:37 am #151531
Hello Olly, thanks for your answer.
Yes I have try some settings change, hoping this will resolve the bootloop.
But I have restore to defaults.
I have try an other version of windows for Hi8 from Chuwi, and have another error message.
So I’ve try with a stock version of windows 10.
Installation program launch and load, but at the moment for choosing storage to install windows, its detect NO storage… not the memory of 32go, and even not the sd card…
At this stade, I can load drivers, maybe I must load a storage driver to recognize the memory ? Or that is because the memory is out of order, and that’s why it bootloop on bios ?April 27, 2019 at 11:57 am #151532
Sorry I’ve forget : I can’t unplug the battery, it’s welded
