Hello, Excellent guide. Not tried to install this particular OS but am definitely interested in giving this a try. Can you advise where the USB Hub with OTG can be bought from though please as the links aren't working (404 error). At a guess Amazon aren't selling them anymore. Any idea whether this particular USB Hub with OTG allows for USB devices to be connected to a Linx Tablet whether or not the device is charging please? Thank you.

If you have access to Windows 8.1 Enterprise you can turn the latest version of Windows 10 in to a Windows to Go drive, so it's fully bootable environment on a USB hard drive, this allows you to try it out without having to install. A better option for those out there scared to wipe their Linx for preview software. With that said Windows 10 seems to be pretty stable and works well on tablet.

I've followed this guide on my Linx 8, working brilliantly thanks! except i cant get the screen to auto-rotate properly. i manually installed the driver, but it auto rotates opposite to what it should :/ at the moment i'm just locking the rotation so its not a huge issue, just annoying

Dir you run the registry file after installing the driver ?
\G-sensor\20140626\kionix_sensor_orientation.reg
i had the same issue on my Tesco Connect 7 until i ran the above.. ;)

Build 10041 on Linx7

Postby WilhelmStroker » March 30th, 2015, 4:51 pm

As there's now an ISO out for build 10041 I thought I'd try upgrading my Linx7. It looks like this build allows an in place upgrade as it no longer throws the `you cannot install as you're using a compressed version' error message. The install itself went pretty smooth and reasonably quick but on login, explorer.exe keeps crashing so there's no way to install any drivers. I may try the 9926 method and do a clean install instead as my device is now not working anyway :) Anyone else tried this?

Hi,

I was wondering if the driver pack for the Linx worked for the Tesco Connect? I did the windows 10 upgrade and things went badly so i'm rebuilding from scratch (yes, i know, idiot :P )

im running 10041 now on my linx 10

clean install wiped entire drive.
works a treat as long as you use the keyboard/touchpad to go through install options.

still needs drivers installing afterwards. came in at about 9gb usage.
converted it to wimboot with zipmagic doublespace after wards (free version does this) and got it down to 6gb disk usage.

set microsd as vhd linked and use the new settings to choose default locations to the vhd

I did a clean install in the end, and it indeed needs all drivers still but once those were installed everything worked fine. Really not a fan of the touch experience on Win10 yet, hopefully it improves a lot in future builds.
