I hope the workaround is that easy. Im not sure that this is the case though, for a start with mine I can't even use the battery, it wont turn on so to have to wait until the battery "naturally" discharges may be some months!
We have had two reports now (yours and mine) and I don't think it's just a one off, there is something happening on the bios where it's writing to the NVRAM or something which its bricking the device.
Here is the email I got as a reply:-

Hello mark. I appreciate the response. First off the tablet has been charged overnight and was hovering at 70 percent charge. Secondly the blue led light on the front which i think is charge light doesn't cone on. Thirdly the screen doesn't come on. I am returning it to where we bought it from for a full refund. It might be worth trying to change the options yourself as i imagine i wont be the only one to try this. Thanks

Please can you charge the tablet in case it's running out of power. If Windows still refuses to work, please connect a keyboard, keep hitting F7, get into BIOS and change back the settings to try?
Otherwise you will have to reimage the OS.
