Hello,

The serial number on my Hi8 pro is Hi8 PQ32G22151103445
There isn't a firmware image matching this in the firmware thread. Any idea which image I should use?

Thanks

Are you sure you own a HI8 Pro? The VI8 series had serial numbers with 1511

Hello momo,
This is because the old install files contain the old Main.cmd file. You can get a new version of the Main.cmd script from Chuwi_WinPE_x64.zip

But I recommend you compile your new install file of the latest build of Windows 10. Click

Yes. I used following windows: http://www.zippyshare.com/DJCubemaster/sckiygi6/dir.html

Hello! Thank you very much for your guide, I was really helpful! Everything works perfectly but I've seen that Windows is a 32 bit and not a 64, I own this version of Hi8 Pro: PQ32G221709xxxx and I bought these files. How can I get the 64-bit version?
Thanks again

Hello pincopallino101,
Your tablet is for 32-bit Windows out of the box. Do not forget that it has 2 GB of RAM only. In addition, the BIOS of your tablet will not allow you to boot a 64-bit system.

Thanks for the reply! So there is no way to install 64-bit Windows? Because it says "64-bit processor based", why this limitation? :O

There is a way to do this install, but I do not recommend using it. To do this, you need to find a 64-bit version of the BIOS that is suitable for your tablet.
I hope you understand that no one will give you any guarantees of the successful fulfillment of this. You can easily brick your tablet and then you will definitely forget this risky way forever.
