I can confirm this works for Linx 7 and the Viglen (Tesco) Connect 7.

But now I was wondering whether it also works for the Microsoft Connect 8.9"?

I would assume it is similar inside, but I know for example that the Linx 8 did not work with the modified BIOS.

So i did the install and when i went to boot the tablet it said "acpi bios error" so i tryed doing it again still the same so i tryed using my recovery usb with it saying the same thing. So i went back into the android create partions and deleted them all so all i had left was 30GB of emptyspace. I tryed booting to the recovery again with same error!!!!! Also tryed with a iso on here and with a windows 10 iso with no luck. I have no idea what to do please help? I thought maybe i need to make the empty space a partition or something?

The ACPI error is because the tablet is stuck in "Legacy Android" Boot mode.

If you go into the BIOS (Power + Vol-up) and change it back to Windows - it should boot again.

If it does, go back into the BIOS, it will have more than likely defaulted back to "Legacy Android" - if this is the case you need to delete the EFI partition (I did this is gParted in a Linux Live distro - just format it and then you will be able to install windows again.

Searched for days for this info, I know the post is old - but the above is the fix
