    I would get it off Amazon personally. Then you have returns and less of a wait.

    Thanks for your thread,

    I would like to upgrade my ssd too in my tablet but i really want to keep all the windows/settings/file from the current ssd,

    There is a way to copy everything from the old ssd to the new one? Norton ghost maybe?

    Norton Ghost or Acronis true image. Even the Windows recovery system image would work.

    AOMEI Backupper standard is really easy and good to copy everything from the old ssd to the new one, too…

    I will get my Kingspec SSD tomorrow and I thought I’d made a system image now so I can just restore it. I have a question though, how do I actually restore it? I’m using the Windows built in tool to do a system image on to an external harddrive. Can I just boot from that drive when the new SSD is there and choose something like “Restore system image” or something? Or do I need to make a bootable Windows 10 usb stick, boot from that, choose restore image, connect the harddrive and restore that?

    I have upgrade my cube i7 stylus with a 256gb Transcend MTS400 (amazon) in last november. I try to clone the old ssd but get only a chinese windows without an option to change to german language. So I install win8.1 pro from dvd new and install the driver set from techtablets download sides. All seams to work fine.

    Some days later I see that the automatic rotation wont work and bluetooth wont find any device ๐Ÿ™

    Today I try to clone the original ssd again. The original ssd is in an usb-case and I boot with an usb recovery-stick and clone the ssdย  again. After clonig and restart, i get a chinese windows recovery mode. Seams to be this: chinese error

    Ater some work (and repair) the cube show me the chinese windows installation dialog ๐Ÿ™

    I think I will get the chinese windows without an option to change the language.

    Whats wrong? How can I get the original windows from the original ssd (now in usb-case)? How can ich change the Chinese language (the normal way wont work! I think it is no windows professional restored).

    Greetings from germany, Stefan.

    I have reinsert the original SSD and cloned again by this way (sorry, in german): c’t WIMage

    After reinstall the new cloned SSD the tablet seams to work fine. Next day I see a activation note, but I can’t activate without the correct product key. I try different programms to read out the key and get the generic installation key (ends with -9D6T9 and only installs Win8.1pro) and two different other keys. Non of them works.

    Now I wait for response by the manufactor (by Gearbest after buy contact).

    Greetings from germany, Stefan.

    PS: I would make a screenshot from the note, but its gone. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don’t know why and haven’t done anything. The activation settings show the last caracters from the generic key. In the lower right corner I see “Windows 8.1Pro Build 9600”. There were the activation notice in the last days. Hmm…

    Just tried to swap out my SSD. after wrestling to get the thing open (twice), it now won’t boot from the recovery media that I JUST created.

    Literally can’t be fucked with it. Another device for the bin.

    Will it boot up? Did you damage it maybe. Or see if that recovery media boots in another PC.

    I eventually got it to boot from the recovery media (have to go into the bios and exit, not changing anything since the usb drive is primary boot by default)
    But it gets to recovering, hangs there for 10 mins and eventually fails with an error about recovery failing.

    Tried making a new recovery drive from my desktop (as these don’t seem to be device specific? but who knows, that might cause me issues), but get the same issue.
