    Have been using my Tbook 16 Power (M5F8) about a month or so, mostly in Android.  Stayed in Android for about 3 weeks.

    Then yesterday, I used the Teclast “Boot to Windows” app which did indeed boot to Windows.  While there, Windows complained I needed to update “OneDrive” so I did.  That’s all I did.  Then shut her down, ready to switch back to Android.

    On reboot, it never opened the white “Select Android or Windows” screen – it just booted right to Windows.  That’s all it does.  I CAN’T GET BACK INTO ANDROID!

    Have changed a few UEFI settings (OS IMAGE ID, was “Windows 8.1”, changed to “Android” but keeps reverting back to Window after booting into Windows – clicked the Android Boot Override, still restarted in Windows.)

    How do I get dual booting back?

    No, but found a (somewhat inconvenient) workaround.  In Windows 10, I downloaded, unzipped and installed the most recent “Boot to Android” .exe from here:

    https://mega.nz/#F!2pgETZxY!Yp9JXwQuVQ0xBsxO2rD6qA

    It worked.  (That should be in the released Windows 10.  It was on my X98 Pro.  Grrrr.)

    So if in Windows, I can run that .exe to get back to Android.

    If in Android, I use the “Boot to Windows” selection on the Power screen to get back to Windows.  (I don’t use the Android “Boot to Windows” app – pretty sure that’s what caused my OS Selection screen to disappear in the first place.)

    The inconvenient part: If booting from Power-On, you might boot into the OS you don’t want.  So then you have to use the “Boot to [the other one]” option to get there.

    BUT I SURE WOULD  LIKE TO GET MY OS SELECTION SCREEN TO APPEAR AGAIN!  I know it’s in there, but what magic will make it show itself again?

    This little thingy did a trick for me! Just check enable when the program starts.

    Please use it at your own risk as I obtained it from another forum (X16), and I don’t know does it interfere with previous BIOS tweaking on Tbook 16 Power (mine is M5F8).

    Cheers, Goran

    Many thanks, Goran.  That worked on my M5F8, too!  I’ve got my OS Selection screen back!

    Thanks Gohan, worked here, and you can use this .exe as a button to reboot to Android

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to confirm that Goran’s solution works on TBook 11 also.

    Thanks a lot!

    Thanks Goran, hopefully that’ll work without issues.  It’ll make a simple job of many mixed messages and part solutions out there 🙂

     

    Quick Update: Yes, this does work…no problems evident.  Thanks again!
