    Hey Guys,
    Is it possible to delete all the partitions and only install windows? I would have normally bought the Windows 10 only version, but they didnt have it in stock. I don´t need Android, so it´s a waste of memory capacity for me.
    Thx in advance 😀

    yes, really easy. just delete all the partitions (dunno if you can from windows setup, if not you must boot with a linux usb drive or winpe and wipe them) and reinstall windows

    do a backup of the drivers first btw, and a full image backup of the whole disk, you’ll probably need to recover some files later

    oh bear in mind that if your windows is the 10pro with MAK activation it won’t be that easy. you can’t reinstall that and keep activation. you’ll have to fiddle with partitions, delete the android ones and resize/reposition the windows ones

    Thank you! I´ve got a lot of unused Win 7 and Win 8 licenses laying around at home. Can I use them to install the normal Windows 10 without resizing and stuff?

    After I deleted everything, how do I boot from my USB-Stick?

    the dual boot screen should pop up with a W instead of the windows logo, select that and it should boot from the usb drive (assuming that’s a winpe usb drive)

    if not, go into bios and select the usb drive in the last tab under boot override

    Press F7 repeatedly while booting until you get to the boot menu

    Yes.

    For some reason changing the boot order in the BIOS doesn’t change anything for me, so I only use F7. In the BIOS there are two menus for boot order, the first one I can’t modify, the second I can modify but it doesn’t help!

    yes it doesn’t matter but the boot override thing is basically a boot menu integrated into bios

    The problem is that I don´t have the CDK05 keyboard yet and my normal cherry keyboard doesnt seem to be working at the beginning of the boot, so I don´t achieve to enter neither the bios nor the boot menu :((

    That’s bad news.

    I didn’t order Cube CKD05 keyboard yet because I want to check tablet first and not pay another 1/3 of its value for keyboard which can be used only with this equipement. Not to menation that I would like to have a battery in this dock. Why they didn’t work out some standard for similar screen size and proportions :(.

    that’s weird. my usb keyboard works when connected directly to the tablet, even in bios. are you spamming that ESC key enough?

    Me too, I use a keyboard that I have lying around plugged in to a USB hub.
