Linx 10 on Windows 10 boots into Shell?

Postby fejjie » December 30th, 2016, 7:24 pm

Hi all, apologies I'm a newbie here.

Bought a little used Linx 10 from ebay for my 7 year old daughter as it got such good reviews.

The previous owner hadn't done a factory reset. So I got hold of their password logged in and tried to reset. It failed. I tried all sorts of fixes and am currently downloading the iso file from this site.

However, at the moment the device isn't booting anywhere near windows 10.

It appears to load a dos screen runs through a load of commands and finishes with

Press ESC in $ seconds to skip startup.nsh, any other key to continue.

No matter what I do it then goes to

I've attached a USB keyboard and tried F2 and also tried holding down volume up button when I power on, but getting nowhere.

Can any of you kind people help?

Did you manage to get it working?

If not it try holding down the delete key on a physical keyboard instead of F2 to get into the BIOS/UEFI and you should be able to start a recovery from there.
