I just had a Linx Vision delivered. I want to upgrade from Win10 32-bit to Win10 64-bit before I do anything else (because the software I wish to use on it is now only upgraded/supported on 64-bit). I followed these instructions (and I have my Win10 key):

https://www.windowscentral.com/how-upgr ... windows-10

However, I cannot boot from USB!!! :x

I can hold the volume+power buttons to bring up the "BIOS" upon restart, but when I go into the Boot Options Menu only "Windows Boot Manager" and "Internal EFI Shell" appear in the menu. If USB were listed I'd stand a chance of getting this to work!

Any ideas please? Many thanks!

Greetings,

I have the same problem as SpatialProf. I have a kazam vision and the only options I see in the boot manager are the "Windows Boot Manager" and "Internal EFI Shell".

I am using a micro usb to female usb adapter, the usb stick appears fine in windows. If I select the "boot from file" option, I can see the usb stick and its contents.

I tried different OS installations with different usb sticks (clonezilla, win 10 and win 7).

Does someone have an idea?

Have a great day!

Give up. There are lots of threads about this. Why people constantly start new threads asking same thing over and over is beyond me.
Vision is stuck with a 32Bit UEFI. It will never boot 64Bit Bootloader for this reason.

Someone has worked out a way to get linux working, but it will not work for Windows.
How Windows Central could post a comprehensive guide and then leave out the most important requirement is crazy.
