    Hello all,

    now i´m ready with my upgrade of my EZPAD 6 pro. I´d like to show you what i´ve done, and how. I made some mistakes and want you not to do the same.

    It´s necessary to have a external Keyboard witch is recognised by the BIOS, if you can not enter your BIOS: STOP here! ( I bought my Device with opt. Keyboard and didn´t try any other Keyboards like USB etc.)

    Micro HDMI Cable to TV Set can help, if you make Errors in Bios Settings, an have then no LCD anymore…( I know, what to to wrong….:-( )

     

    But First, my Aim was  to speed up the System and getting more Space on HDD. So I installed a 256GB Trekstore SSD. This was not so difficult, but open the Case to remove the Backcover broke the Conector of the keypad. So be carefull when open the Backcover and leave the 4 Screws on the lower side installed untill you have opend the top, the left and right side. Start with the top side. When done remove the screws and pull off the backcover in direktion the keybord conectors shows. ( The conector gets throu the cover so you have to pull the cover over the conector.)

    After install the ssd, reassembe in backwards order.

    Now i had to look into the BIOS to see, if the ssd is recognised. You find it under “Chipset – South Cluster Configuration – SATA Drives”

    Go into it and found! Just Switch “SATA Device Type” to “Solid State Drive”.

    I didn´t want to leave the chinese OS on the device, i prefered Win 10 pro, so Bitlocker and Domain Login is there available.

    But for fallback Needs, i leave the emmc untouched.

    So first is to disable the eMMC in Bios, you find it under “Chipset – South Cluster Configuration – SCC Configuration – SCC eMMC Support” and set it to disable. If SCC SDIO Support is already enable, disable it too.

    Prepare a Win 10 USB Bootstick with the Windows Media Creator Tool. Mount the stick at a running Win PC, open the FileExplorer to look in the Stick. Search for a Folder named “Sources” and open it. Here you create a new Textfile named “ei.cfg” and open it with a Texteditor. Write in it:

    [EditionID]
    Professional
    [Channel]
    Retail
    [VL]
    0

    and save it. Be sure the Name is not “ei.cfg.txt” , just “ei.cfg”.

    This will bring you direkt to Win 10 Pro, otherwise Win will install Home Edition.

    If you want, you can also do with with your Win 10 Pro Product Key:

    In Folder Sources generate a txt File named ” PID.txt” and edit it with:

    [PID]
    Value=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

    where the Xes are your key.

    Save all, remove the Stick.

    Insert the Stick at your EZPad an Power on, Start BIOS and Change Boot Options #1 to Boot your Stick.

    I choosed the 64Bit Version, because all my Driver i have are 64Bit.

    Win Setup will start, i had to delete all the Partions on my SSD and create new. Win will create so all nessesary Partions.

    While install, dont give your WIfi Password, just scip this item.

    After Install is ready, check all devices. You will find many error in the device Manager. But dont worry, you already have all Driver on your eMMC!

    So, back to BIOS and turn the eMMC on again, reboot, again to Bios an check the first Boot Order ist Windows Bootmanager of your SSD ( Bios Shows also the Boot Manager of the eMMC, the right(new) Bootmanager is ” Windows Boot Manager (P0: )”)

    Reboot Windows and look for the eMMC as second Storage. Maybe you have to allow the File Explorer to Show hidden and Systems File. Inhere you will have the old Windows Folder, your Drivers are in Subfolder \system32. From here you can install all Devices,

    In my Systems there are two devices missing, somehow like I2C devices. But they also missed in OEM Win. So dont worry, this seems to be normal.

    If you are not satisfied with your work, just Change Boot Order back to your eMMC, and all will be the old OEM System.

    Finaly here some Fakts of the results:

    Write and Read Speeds eMMC(Drive D) vs SSD(Drive C): (winsat disk -seq read -drive c)

    (winsat disk -seq read -drive c)</span> : 527.58MB/s (Index 8.1)

    (winsat disk -seq write -drive c): 416.71MB/s (Index 8.0)

    (winsat disk -seq read -drive d): 145.51MB/s (Index 7.1)

    (winsat disk -seq write -drive d): 15.37MB/s (Index 3.3) (and no, this not a typing error)….

    Thanks for reading this, and please don´t make me responsible for any dammage at your Hard and Software. This is not a Tutorial!!

    Bye

    P.S: I made Pictures of all BIOS Screens before i startet. (Qick´n dirty by Smartphone Cam.)
