    It works now. For some reason, you have to connect the keyboard at the second usb port.

      I have just registered and read this forum completely. I just want to make sure about the correct method to remove the Android part, in order to free up more space for Windows.
      So, can someone please tell me?

        The easiest way is:

        1) Buy on the web a Microsoft Windows 10 Key for few dollars
        2) Download and install Windows 10 from Microsoft site, deleted all old partitions on x5
        3) Install the drivers missing from https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vR-...ew?usp=sharing

          Thanks,
          The problem is that I am very happy with the current windows install with all added programs. So if at all possible, I would prefer not to install Windows again.
          Would it be possible just to delete all Android partitions (which ones are they?) and then add the space to the windows partition?
          Thanks in advance
          Wim

            Disclaimer: Follow this procedure at your own risk.

            Warning: This procedure wipes all data so I recommend doing a full backup before to flash the firmware.

            Download link from Gearbest Customer Support:

            Android X5: https://beelink-my.sharepoint.com/pe...3wY5C-CRbFznEs

            Download link from Chuwi Forum: https://forum.chuwi.c om/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=3394&extra=page%253D1 &page=1

            Android Chuwi HiBox: http://www.mediafire.com/file/bu73xx...ox_Android.rar
            1. Format USB Flash Drive FAT32
            2. Download, unpack and copy all files from Android X5 firmware on USB Flash Drive
            3. Download, unpack and copy only EFI directory from Android Chuwi HiBox firmware on USB Flash Drive
            4. Insert USB Flash Drive at the first USB2 port, the USB Keyboard at the second USB2 port
            5. Power ON the X5 and press ESC many times to enter the BIOS/UEFI and select USB Flash Drive to boot
            6. Now start the flash procedure, it during about 15 minutes and require several restart/reboot automatically
            7. At the end of the flash procedure, you can view the Android System up and run
            8. Format USB Flash Drive NTFS
            9. Download, unpack and copy all files from Windows 10 X5 on USB Flash Drive
            10. Insert USB Flash Drive at the first USB2 port
            11. Restart X5 from Android and press ESC many times to enter the BIOS/UEFI and select USB Flash Drive to boot
            12. Now start the Windows Installation procedure automatically
            13. Reboot


            That's all.

            I would like to go back to exclusive android SO. I used this tutorial, but after step 5 i got this error message after the boot "efi \ boot \ BOOTX64.efi is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or bach file".

              I don't know what causes the issue but a better Android experience I recommend Android X86.

                I tried android x86 (8, 7.1, remix and 6.0), but the performance was weird and very laggy, can't even run a 1080p movie. I returned to W10.

                  If you can afford 35 USD you can buy arm tv box:

                    I completely wiped the Alfawise X5's (I purchased 8), and reinstalled windows 10 pro.
                    This left me without audio, Bluetooth and a handful of other system drivers.
                    This download link, had all the drivers I needed.

                    I used device manager, to update driver and pointed it at the "Default string 19-Dec-17 11-05-25 AM" folder for each unknown device.
                    Now the Alfawise is happily playing Spotify for the office.

                    Thank you heaps!

                      I need to PXE boot the Alfawise X5. Has anyone here done that before or heard of somenone doing it? Thanks for your help.
