    Replace <bios-file.bin> with the real name of the downloaded file, without the <>.

    Here is the file which worked at my C2E3. Put it to /data/local/tmp where your bios file is located, too.

    Finally entered as you said and the tablet seem to went loading something for some minutes, then reboot, everything running normal, then reboot into BIOS, but nothing seems to be new here.

     

    Still I can’t boot from USB for installing Windows… Here you have two pics. How can I boot from the bottable USB?

    If everything worked right you should be on BIOS tpad v3.05!

    To get a working Windows Install-Stick:

    Use rufus with “mbr for uefi boot” and “fat32” option to create the stick from iso, then at stick, copy “bootx64.efi” file from /efi/boot folder into /efi/microsoft/boot and rename it to “bootmgfw.efi”, also rename “cdboot.efi” to “cdboot.bak”, then try again

    As you can see in the attached photo, I’m still at tpad v 3.02…..

    What could be wrong? Im flashing the file you uploaded some posts before.

    I made the bottable USB with Windows USB aplication..

    But if I’m not looking for dual boot, just for having Windows, do I need to flash or update the bios?

    I just want to install windows and eliminate android.

    But, actually, the Bios doesn’t show me booting from USB as a boot option.

     

    Thank you for your help.

    Your’re welcome!

    To use Windows You need another BIOS as delivered! So try to flash it to Version 3.05, which is a Dual Boot BIOS to get Windows running.

    I can not tell You, what went wrong …

    The Stick has to be created as I wrote, otherwise the BIOS will not be able to boot from it.

    Could you please reupload that 3.05 version?

    I’ll give it a new try, what are exactly the messages that terminal should give to me?

     

    Last time, I typed the final command and it stayed static until it rebooted to android, don’t really know if this is the process..

    I really thank you because if I don’t get it I’ll need to send it back..

    No need to upload it again … it is the right file.

    Go into bios and prove if bios protection is disabled.

    Did you unzip the bios.zip and verify the md5sum?

    Finally got it. I renamed the file at first, maybe that was reason.

    Now I’m on 3.05, but still without recognising the USB bottable drive. I’ll try that Rufus.

     

    Jus curious, what if I want to have dual boot? Create a new partition with Windows installer?

    I repartitioned only the last 4 or 5 partitions with other sizes with an sysresccd-stick. Then i flashed with intel phone flashtool but without “gpt.bin” which would overwrite the modified partition-table

    Hi.

    Made bottable USB as you said but still it doesn’t appear in my BIOS boot options.

    Did it appear to you?

    As you can see I’m already at tpad 3.05..

    Congratulations! You are not far away from having Windows!

    Did You rename / move the mentioned Files like cdboot.efi and so on? Do You have FAT32 on Your Stick?

    Yes.

    I moved and renamed files as you said.

    I used too Fat32 format.

    If I plug to my laptop it does detect the stick in the bios.

    So I really don’t know what to do.

     

    I’m using a 64 GB stick and the stock OTG wire, if matters.
