    Anyone managed to do this? I only want Win10 on there and extra space.

    Yes, I tied a couple of days ago with a windows image that I have. Just removed all the partitions and formatted the drive, then installed windows using the whole drive capacity.

    Just use a windows installation disk or use any bootable drive management software like GParted to remove the android partitions and expand windows partition.

    However you’ll still get the boot selection screen and if you choose android it just keeps rebooting, not sure exactly how you can disable the boot selection screen.

    So which partitions do I have to delete? Can I delete all partitions and then just let the windows bootable drive generate the 100mb system partition + another partition for Windows with the entire capacity, that´s left? Or delete the android partitions only, format the windows partition + system and resize the main windows partition?

    Any guides about to make it single boot? I’m pretty good with pcs in general but never done it on a tablet, is the windows key stored in the bios like a computer? I could possibly download a Win 10 Pro image and start fresh.

    it IS a computer. the key, if legit, should be in the bios.

    How do I find out if the key is legit? Shouldn’t all these tablets have a legit key though ?

    I think you can modify the bootscreen on the SwitchNow app on the Windows (available on desktop). Never really tried it since I still need the Android and I don’t want to make additional problem.

    EDIT: I removed all “unused” partitions and the huge 17GB one containing Android using Aesus Partition Manager. I kept all the smaller partition labelled as EFI or “reserved” or “recovery” (this one is almost 500mb) then I formatted the unused space and mounted a folder inside my documents in Windows.

    It’s not as nice as merging C with the now free partition (and have it expanded by 17GB) but I’d say it’s a decent result. I installed my Dropbox there so now I don’t have to worry to run out of space.
