    I think I'd like to get into the uefi menu and change the boot order there. Can you explain how you were able to achieve this? Holding the shift key during restart does not help me.
    F11 did not work for me during boot up.

    Power On with Delete button pushed allowed me to get into Bios Menu.
    Quick Boot is disabled and Boot Order is: USB HDD, USB CD, USB FDD, SD CARD, eMMC CARD 0:DISK, INTERNAL SHELL, WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER, USB LAN.
    ....leaving for 3weeks on the road and will call Lefty for further details on a live usb version for “paintball from Modesto”...

    mine has (ahem) *hot pink* dots on the "F" and "J" , hot pink "SPACE BAR" on/takes up the space bar , hot pink "L" and "R" on the sides of the pad and is hot pink number "19" (twice) .
    maybe it was a *blue oyster* special ?
    the paint (i am thinking dry erase) is coming off slowly with naphtha .
    i knew california was a bit overboard with protecting people from themselves and that consequently people become unable to think for themselves (you can breed smarts in or out) but this is ridiculous .
    and i wondered why/thought that it looked like it had been un-boxed and sat on a shelf ... looked absolutely brand new .
    the answer was right in front of me all along .

    i might have to ask jeff for a stick once the bugs are out of the set-up ...
    a mennonite minister friend of mine would like to try one out for use in "home schooling" ... however ...
    with all of the spying stuff , viruses and such , he would like to go with a 'nix OS .
    and to be honest , i have a little problem recommending W10 in/for this application .
    so much for my plans to sell the unit and pull a pontius pilate .
    (it is ok to plan the plan , just don't plan the outcome)
    :eek2:

    So I wound up with 2 of these, one came with Win 8.1 Pro installed and the other is bare blank drive. Everything works on the 8.1 unit, only Panasonic driver seems to be sound. For the blank unit I tried installing Win 10 32-bit. It seemed to install ok except no keyboard, touchscreen, or sound. So I tried to re-do by installing Win 8.1 Pro, but that asks for a key. Thought these had 8.1 originally and would automatically validate. What's the best way to get win 8.1, or better Win 10, running?

    Did you try to install the OEM version of Win8.1?

    yep ... i used the "downloader" at/from the M$ site , selected the OS required and built/burnt an .iso file to usb and loaded it (performing the appropriate tricks in the uefi firstly) .
    (the link is elsewhere in this thread ?) .
    not sure here , but something about the os version matching the imbedded activation code comes to mind ... the downloader from M$ takes care of this .
    i loaded firefox on a stick , installed it and then installed "7zip" .
    from there , i went to the intel site and dl'ed the drivers (there is a bundle available but i like to load only what is needed) .
    i cannot recall if the validation happens on-line with the generic ethernet driver before the "real" driver is dl'ed and installed .
    the MS version of an AV/AM is automatically installed and activated ... you might want to turn this off and install something else .

    hey ...
    i have noticed that some of the ads for these units (especially from modesto) mention office being installed .
    it would make sense to have MSO in the school units .
    could it be that the embedded blanket license(s) will activate a copy ?
