Make sure the keyboard is attached when you hold the button combination. If the keyboard is not connected it tends to just ignore the button combination altogether.

As a last resort hold volume up+down+power. This cause mine into a weird DBX mode and then sent itself to BIOS and the to recovery after it failed to boot. Not sure if this was a one off though.

When you clean install your linx Tablet with Windows 10 or 8 and reset it. Drivers are also removed.

I solved this by injecting the drivers on a preinstalled state, hence making the recovery environment.

This has solved my reset problem and works flawlessly.

Il upload some more instructions soon for any one else.

Me too.
I am unable to force the linx to boot from the USB drive.
Note that I don't have a USB hub that works with the Linx, so I am trying recovery without a keyboard.
Maybe there is a way to boot with the keyboard and then swap to the USB recovery drive once in the boot menu?

I have managed to source a USB hub and I can now see the recovery drive.
