    Thanks, man. Appreciate the link. But, I think it might be a hardware issue. I found this article and apparently it’s pretty common. It actually happened to my Chuwi12 (charge light on working, wouldn’t boot), but I just charged it overnight, then long pressed the power/vol button, and it came back.

    Ah well. Live and learn.

    Oh I get u. That’s why sellers usually send an opened tablet. So they can change the language settings. Ironically, I reset it because the tablet already had a profile when i got it. which caused the first of my problems when it frozr. (Side note. My i9 died permanently last week after the tablet didn’t hibernate properly and the battery drained dead. Even dis/reconnecting the battery inside didn’t help. So, careful with that everyone.)

    Anyway, maybe there’s a picture tutorial online somewhere.

    A guy from this forum kindly downloaded the rom from Baidu and even included a word doc with translated instructions: http://techtablets.com/forum/topic/windows-10-official-iso-download/

    All good man:)

    I just know what it’s like to be a tech novice and have tutorials just go over your head.

    I reset Windows using a normal Windows Boot disk: https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/software-download/windows10

    After downloading the ‘download tool’ in the above link, I stuck it in the USB. Then entered the i9 BIOS. To do this, turn it off, then long press the power and and volume buttons (15sec+). It might take a few attempts. Sometimes I’d get in and not know what happened. Othertimes, it would just boot normally (into that 64% install loop screen). Just mess around with it.

    You’ll get to a blue screen. Go to boot menu and select USB as the 1st boot option. (Do not force boot the USB, that’s what fucked me up). Save &reboot.

    Once you reset it will auto load the USB.

    From there, go to “repair” (bottom left option.. or it might say “advanced options”, I cant recall) Just don’t choose install (install is last resort I think). Then follow this quick guide to reset: http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4130-reset-windows-10-a.html

    resetting takes about 1-2hrs. Once you’re back into Windows, you should download the i9 drivers and install them: http://techtablets.com/downloads-drivers-roms/

    What might be easier, and what I wanted to do but never did (because I solved it the above way first), is just install the “ROM” provided by Cube. There’s a guy on this forum who has kindly downloaded it from Baidu and uploaded on Mega. He also translated the instructions. I think this is basically the same thing.  http://techtablets.com/forum/topic/windows-10-official-iso-download/

    After you’re back into Windows, I’d also recommend installing the updated BIOS. http://techtablets.com/forum/topic/optimized-bios/

    Good luck

    PS. Not sure, but if that happened to you, you might also get “ghost” touching of the Windows key. If you do, check this out: https://mega.nz/#!gIIGSR5b!YTQXLlFGtr-PLQby9goqu9yv3hm2d-RtEMGL5ojsbU8

    Just wanted to provide an active link to the fix that socube is giving anyone with the phantom Windows key “ghost” touching. Thankfully, it wasn’t a hardware issue for me.  https://mega.nz/#!gIIGSR5b!YTQXLlFGtr-PLQby9goqu9yv3hm2d-RtEMGL5ojsbU8

    The problem is outlined in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldgwMbysjUY

    It worked for me, but unfortunately, the dude in the vid had lots of problems.

    Thanks for the drivers. I’ve been trying for a clean install of Win10, but I keep getting error messages during the initialisation part before the “install” part…

    Someone posted this link: http://www.cube-tablet.com/news/cube-i9-windows10-system-installation-rom/

    I have a feeling this should do it. I’m going to try and get the retailer to download it for me since it’s on Baidu and in Chinese… Damnit. They probably won’t go that far to help eh? I’m too much of a Luddite to know what the fuck is going on here.

    Hello spzjulien.

    If you did that you would be saving me from hell right now. I think that’s what I need to reinstall Windows… I tried to do a factory reset on my newly arrived i9 but it stalled. I’ve been trying to do a clean Win10 install via USB, but I keep getting messages I don’t understand….
