    I* must congratulate you, sir. I have been going nuts for 10 hours trying to reinstall Windows 10 on my brand new Chuwi Hi8 after a Windows update went horribly wrong. I could not get the darn thing to see my USB thumb drive. Every article I read insisted the drive be formatted to NTFS. Yours said to format it Fat32. Who knew it could be such a simple little thing as that. Windows is on its way back up now. Thank you!!

    Well, I do have Windows back. However, battling with the network driver/no wifi and no touchscreen issues now. Once I figure it out, I’ll update this post so that maybe someone else can avoid my frustration.

    I -WILL- beat this thing. Never give up NEVER SURRENDER !!

    Hi, Many thanks for your hard work and guidance! I have a Chuwi Hi8 Pro. I generally followed your clean installation guide with a few differences and managed to succesfully clean install the latest version of Windows (April 2018 version 1803). I had removed Android beforehand for space reasons, but when I tried to install the 1803 “upgrade” it failed spectacularly and managed to destroy Net Framework in the process. This in turn caused many apps to fail. I tried many times to repair/upgrade, then gave up and decided to bite the bullet and re-install W10 from scratch. It turned out to be pretty painless.

    Here are a few differences in the process I employed:

    • The Windows Creation tool was directly used to download W10  and create the USB drive. I did not need Rufus. I accepted the automatic naming of the drive given by the tool.
    • Before starting the process I made a backup of all the drivers (non microsoft) on the tablet with Double Driver, and reinstalled them after W10 installed.
    • I used a 2-hub c type USB (power supply attached) with a keyboard/mouse dongle and the USB drive created by the Windoes Media Creation tool. I did not need a wi-fi dongle. Note: the USB Drive had been previously formatted to NTFS but maybe the creation tool reformatted it to something else, I did not check.
    • When I was ready to do the install, with the hub, kb/mouse dongle and USB drive attached, I powered up the tablet and pressing “esc” on the keyboard brought up the BIOS. I think it was the last page of the BIOS where there was a “boot override” option. I chose my sandisk USB drive and away it all went, without any sort of hitch. On one of the many reboots it spent a lot of time “getting ready” (seemed like an age, maybe 15 minutes?) and I was beginning to think something had gone awry when it suddenly finished and went on to the next stage.
    • It is still 32 bit Windows (as the original installation was) , I did not chance installing the 64 bit as I had read somewhere that the BIOS is incompatible on my particular tablet, even though the machine itself is 64 bit.

    I think those were the main differences. Everything could not have gone more smoothly.

    Thanks again for your excellent guide which made the whole process much less daunting!

    Hi

    I did everything, now I only have a working win10, but, when I boot the device, the dual boot screen appears. How to delete this?

    Thanks

    Regards
