Hi,

A have a Chuwi Vi8+ tablet with dual boot and I have to boot from an USB key.
I want to restore a system image.
USB key as a boot device is working well on a Windows 10 PC.
I'm doing exactly the same thing with my tablet but it is not working.

In the VI8+ Bios, the USB key is shown, and USB key is before hard drive in the boot sequence.
But the tablet is always booting on the hard drive.

Any idea ?

Thanks

I have already try with F7.
When I select USB key in the boot menu_, I have a black screen during less than 1 second and I have to choose between Android or Windows.
OS shows the key but It is like my key is not working, , I have try with a key format in NTFS, FAT32 . Windows 10 64bit, 32bit.

USB key boots with a PC, not with Tablet.

Perhaps your usb key is formatted in legacy. Bootable mode. Format the usb key in uefi bootable mode using rufus utility programme and try.

1. maybe USB key is not named WinPE?
2. some kind of BIOS protection, prevent it to boot on UEFI environment?

Agree with deejay1963, you should try rufus. My USB key boots fine using it.

I have solved the problem:
i have create a recovery drive directly from my VI8+ Windows (search recover and select create a recovery drive).

Thanks deejay1963 and xaser for your support

Hello G74,

Do you have d4d6 bios? I really need that windows image to boot from, what you found in this forum is for d2d3 bios, an earlier version of vi8+. For newer vi8+ with d4d6 bios and win10x64 we dont have suport, that is the reason that you was unable to boot from windows10 image posted here.
So my request (and others in my situations) is for you to upload you image of windows10.

Thank you.
