Removing Linux, Reinstalling Windows

[Copy link]

I installed Fedora Linux on my Chuwi Hi8 Pro. As I am not able to get the touch screen working, I want to remove Linux and reinstall Windows. I already downloaded the Windows intallation files from the forum and copied them to a USB stick, however I am not able to boot from the USB stick.

When installing Fedora I repartitioned the flash disk which might have messed up the boot configuration. Whenever I select to boot from the USB stick in the startup boot menu (by pressing F7) the system cannot find the bootloader and Grub/Fedora is loaded.

Any suggestions on how I could fix this so that I can boot from USB stick again to reinstall Windows?

To be recognized, the USB must be renamed to WINPE and to obtain the boot selection menu, press F7 intermittently until the bios menu is displayed.

You can get help from a specialist at the nearest local computer repair shop. I think they will sort out your problems. Do not waste your time.
Good Luck!

I managed to install Windows with a "regular" Windows Installation USB-Stick created with Microsofts Media Creation Tool. Where can I find all the drivers for PQ32G221709XXXXX (32 Bit)?
