Hibox-hero different OS

[Copy link]

Hello,

CHUWI Hibox-hero has two operating systems: Android and Windows 10. Is there a possibility to setup different OS? E.g. Ubuntu.

There is no way how to boot using USB or SD card so I'm wondering is it possible to achieve at all?

You can boot from USB, hit F7 when starting the device and a boot menu will come
I do NOT work for Chuwi. Please DO NOT pm or email me with problems you may have!

Are you running the box as a triple boot?

I've had so many Os's on it now it's crazy. Not all function great but well enough. Windows 10 Enterprise, Linux Mint 18.1, Ubuntu, OpenSuSE, Android x86 Nougat, PhoenixOS, RemixOS and more. The main problem is sound drivers and wifi but if you have a wifi dongle and a usb sound card you can run just about anything from what I can see.
