Yeah i managed to do the same and have been tinkering with it since the weekend. I have managed to get Android installed to a USB drive as a full install (not running the live USB!). It saves the changes which is all i have needed it to do really so i can test it properly. As far as i can tell we have the same issues such as the screen rotation, camera led and sound not working.
I am currently running Windows 10 and boot into android directly from it using the recovery menu. I don't want to try a full dualboot as i dont want to mess with the BIOS. I can confirm that android runs silky smooth on this tablet too, the antutu benchmark gave it a score of over 33,000! which is nearly double my existing Acer Iconia Tablet. I have also tried the 3D mark on the the playstore and it maxed out one of the tests and never went below 20 fps. The epic citadel held a steady 50+ fps too!
The only other issues i have noticed are:
1. if the tablet goes to sleep mode or the screen turns off due to timeout it locks up the tablet for a while. (I think this is a known issue with android x86)
2. trying to update superuser also locks up the tablet, i am not sure if this issue is with the kernel.
I hope this get more support as it is a brilliant tablet!

I have managed to use the same steps to install to a MicroSD card but it is not detected by the Windows Recovery menu so I still have to use a USB adapter at the moment. What guide or instructions did you use to create a recovery USB?
Just to give you another update am currently looking at possibly making a new Kernel file or editing the one included with Android x86 to see if I can get the sound or the rotation working correctly. I have also found that there are links online to Android X86 running Android 5.0+ so I might give one of them a try tonight.
