Hi all,
I just found out that there is an easy way to convert your chuwi hi8 pro dual boot tablet to a windows only tablet with one big ~28GB C: drive.

Here is what I did to archieve this:


OPTIONAL: (Remove OS Selection Screen when booting)
  • Find the SwitchNOW.exe in the hidden recovery folder (See here: https://forum.chuwi.com/forum.php ... =5208&fromuid=39061)
  • Run SwitchNOW.exe, a prompt will pop up asking you if you want to boot to Android. Select NO.
  • Another promt will pop up, select the Disable radio button at "Boot menu configuration" and exit the program.

This will delete android and will reinstall windows onto one big partition.

PS: You can always get Android/Dual Boot back using this tutorial: https://forum.chuwi.com/forum.php ... ypeid%26typeid%3D17

PSS: I am pretty sure this works for other tablets too! All windows firmwares come with this Main.cmd script.
This script always has two installation routines, one for single OS and one for dual OS. You only have to edit the script so it executes the single OS routine instead of the dual OS. In most scripts you only need to change a variable (linke on hi8 pro, see above), in some other scripts you have to modify a goto statement.

Using the drivers you putted above, will I be able to do it in a Chuwi PQ32G221708xxxx ?
Every driver is working properly? (Asking more concretely for touch pad, battery management, camera and tablet rotation)
Thank you so much for your great work

My usb is formatted as NTFS , renamed as WINPE (Assigned to F: letter) and the files inside are exactly the same as displayed in tutorial but I'm getting this error everytime that tried to install windows:

ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.
WinPESource is drive letter ""

Drive letter NOT found.

Did you try it with another USB pendrive? Also do not assign any drive Letter to your usb device.

Awesome I finally used a SD card an everything is working 100%. Thank you so much for your help.

Note that in my particular case USB's were not working I don't know why but if anyone has the same problem, testing this option could be the solution but I don't guarantee it.

Thank you again

Hello Kulzakk,
It seems that the failure is due to the fact that there are extraneous discs. This can be a card reader built in your USB HUB. Make sure there is no card reader on your USB HUB.
