Is it possible to install Windows 8.1 on Vi8 Plus with dual Windows10+Android boot?  (I don't like Windows 10 and want to downgrade to Windows 8.1...)

Hi,
Why don't you try to install Win8.1 on their own? If that fails, you could easily reflash stock system back. I think it would be a valuable experience for some users. I am ready to render you all possible assistance.

The reason I asked this question is b/c I don't have a Chuwi yet...  But, any existing Chuwi owner is more than welcome to try this experiment and report the result here.  

(P.S.:  You don't even need a license to install Windows 8.1.  It's possible to install Windows 8.1 with a generic key and try it FREE for 3 months before it expires...)

I do not observe existing Chuwi owners here who want to downgrade to Windows 8.1. Therefore have no motivation to perform such experiments.
Believe me, that shpionofobiya (fear of espionage) is curable. But if it is a chronic case, then MS DOS 6.0 or Windows 3.11 are more appropriate. Good luck

^ how much did M$ pay you to write this response?  Trust me, out of Google/Apple/Microsoft, MS is the most unethical one.  Windows 10 will be their downfall.  There are stats floating around Win10 will NOT reach its stated goal of a billion devices in a couple of years.  Win phone already dead.  

Anyways, in a few short years, the old dinosaurs like the above trio will be replaced with new comers like Huawei, Xaomi, etc.  I'll be filled with glee when this hapens b/c Windows (10)/android will no longer be the OS they come with...

Do not make me laugh. What is stopping you to buy a tablet and install Win8.1? I am ready to assist, but to install unnecessary system on my tablet is absurd. It's a pity that you accepted all so wrong. Apparently, this is the chronic case as I mentioned above.

How do you think? VI8 was released with Windows 10, so propably drivers doesn't exist. I have not yet seen a device that has support for an older system than the one with which it was released. By buying this tablet you knew what you were getting.
