  • Dual booting Android and Windows on Minix Z64W

      Thank you for the information linuxium!

      I could boot into android, but there is a problem with the audio?
      I couldn't get any sound via HDMI cable on my TV. Using windows, everything is okay.(no sound problem)
      Maybe some audio drivers for 32 bit Android or for HDMI sound interface are missing?

      Did you check the sound?

          Great. I'm a newbie Z64A owner... Excuse me for my questions...
          How can I have dual boot with Windows and Android?
          And, another question... Do I need a cable USB keyboard installed at boot for selecting O.S. ?
