    My advice Give up on Linux on a 3E.
    Secure boot keeps it from working.
    Since this is NOT a retail market device, it is very possible the Firmware will NEVER accept or run Linux.

    I officially give up as I may have bricked this 3E..
    I tried to get into the UEFI settings through win8.1 and it locked up..
    Could not shut it off..I may have to wait hours for the battery to drain.

    GOOD reading from here.. Classmate 3 is another name for the 3E
    https://kb.stonegroup.co.uk/stone-c...an-operating-system-and-using-disk-im_390.pdf

    Stone Classmate 3 Firmware Features - Information for Installing an Operating System and
    Using Disk Imaging Software
    New UEFI Firmware Features
    The Stone Classmate 3 like many new tablets has been designed to provide the latest firmware features including:
    Rapid boot times (including support for Windows Fastboot).
    Support for Windows 8 secure boot.
    Support for other recent industry standards which include security, power management and compatibility.
    Support for Windows 8.1 x86 only.
    This new firmware feature set is known as "UEFI" and it replaces the traditional BIOS code for configuring and booting a machine into the operating
    system.
    The "BIOS setup" screen may look very similar to setup screens of previous models, but the BIOS code underneath is very different to models of just
    a few years ago.
    As a Windows 8.x only unit, the Classmate 3 does not support legacy BIOS compatibility modes. This is a reflection upon the industry'sdrive to
    improve the usability and features of new systems, albeit at the cost of reducing legacy support.
    What Does this Mean in Terms of Installing an Operating System?
    This means that the operating system you want to install needs to support UEFI features, such as the GPT ("GUID Partition Table")method of disk
    partitioning
    . Windows 8.x supports this method. The older "master boot record" or MBR method of partitioning hard drives is not supported by the
    Classmate 3.
    Note:
    This means that Windows 8.x images created in MBR mode cannot be used on the Classmate 3 until the boot loader has been reconfigured to
    use UEFI. Additionally, we always recommend the preparation of fresh software images for each model of machine you plan to deploy.

    As I read that, I understand something. You may NEED to create the usb stick on a computer that supports GPT partitioning.

    upgraded to windows 10 pro.
    seamless upgrade.
    Had to reinstall the wifi driver.

    Ran O&O shutup win10
    Ran UWT for win 10.
    It works------classicshell had to adjust itself.

    Windows 10 is better than windows 8.1 on this.
