This method can offer a clean reinstall Windows only if you don’t have reason to keep your Android in the tablet and merge about 9 GB to Windows for more space. But it is not suitable for tablets, sold in the Chinese market. Because of installed Win 10 RTM CoreCountrySpecific OEM: DM
You must understand that a clean installation - it is not the same as reinstalling Chuwi Hi12 Windows 10 System according to the official Chuwi instructions.
Any device with a preinstalled Windows 10 should be easily reinstalled by clean installation with the same Windows 10 edition with any product language. Your license key is stored in BIOS.
You can use the media creation tool to create your own installation USB flash drive and perform a clean installation using USB. The media creation tool and detailed instructions how to use it can be found here:
You should not perform installation using the media creation tool. Just select Create installation media for another PC. Choose English (people from other language world have to select other language), Windows 10 Home, 64-bit architecture, USB flash drive and follow other steps to download and create the installation media.
I do hope you know how to perform installation and what to do next. Before installation, you should download all the Chuwi Hi12 Drivers from the first page of the thread.
The battery level should be more than 50% before reinstalling the system.
Restart your tablet with the USB drive inserted and boot from that device.
Press the power button of the tablet and simultaneously click “F7” of the keyboard continuously to enter the boot menu.
Choose your USB flash drive and click Enter.
You should skip the product key page by selecting the Skip button.
Go through the setup process normally until you see the “Which type of installation do you want?” screen. Select the “Custom” option to ensure you’re performing a clean install and not an upgrade install.
You should delete all partitions if you don’t have reason to keep your Android in the tablet and merge about 9 GB to Windows for more space. Select the unallocated space to install Windows 10 and follow other steps to continue till the end.
You should download ZIP file with TouchSetting.gt file in it from here. Unzip the file TouchSetting.gt and place it in folder C:\Windows\INF and do reboot of the tablet.
You should install all the necessary drivers after Windows installation. You should already have drivers downloaded.
Hi12 _X64 driver -dualboot.rar (it is about 245 МБ)
You must to UnRAR (extract the RAR archive) that file in folder C:\Drivers
Go to Devise manager & update drivers for unknown devices via Browse my computer for drivers... & forward to your folder C:\Drivers
Some of the devices will be not updated at once, it should not bother you, just keep updating other unknown devices. Then restart your tablet, go back to the Device Manager to check the remaining unknown devices. If these remain, repeat the update in the same way.
Your tablet should automatically activate itself after you connect to the Internet.
All that you do - you do at your own risk!
It is important to know some unpleasant nuances of the tablet. You should not attempt to run Windows reset to factory defaults ('Reset this PC'), because it will bricks the tablet.
As you probably know, official Chuwi's WIN10 Offline Activation Method doesn't work for Chuwi Hi12 dualboot.
Instead of the method described above, you can use a modified method of PepeII to restore from Recovery image and get Windows 10 Home.
