Good news my friend, install drivers, do not install Antivirus at this stage, then follow this procedure: https://technet.micr.../dn621983.aspx and later this one https://technet.micr.../dn605112.aspx  or ask cdob to help you make a new Boot Wim install.ini compresed image Windows way (using dism) to free several GB in your device, ask him if installing Office before making the compresed image can create any conflict with Wim Boot, if not it's a good idea to do it.

I remember I read somewhere that when running an antivirus in a Wim Boot system, the antivirus extracts all files from the install.wim so you lose all the benefits from Wim Boot, even worst you end up with a full instaled system + a compresed image of it, so think about this.

 

I have the drivers if you need any just tell me in order to upload it because can't remember the link. I'm thinking in buy a MeGoPad T01 so when  I saw the drivers just downloaded them, think from a chinese dealer page about the device.

 

Best Regards

When i get more time ill try to create a boot Win and ask for help. Thanks.

 

 

I forgot where i found the drivers link but i think it was from where i bought it.

The Meegopad from Maketheone came with a Activated Windows 8.1 with Bing. So no worries about not being activated.

Since the meegopad has a key built in to activate Windows 8.1 with Bing you shouldnt have a problem running it.

Amazing Device I have been looking for something to be able to stream games from my large desktop computer to other Monitors Even directly into my Projector. I Just Plugged in a Xbox 360 dongle through the usb port and works great!. :D even used it as a media client for when Im on the go. Even if you forget your keyboard and mouse you can control it via Android or Ios Remote apps. The added Bluetooth and wifi is great no need for more usb dongles. Even comes with an Travel Case so i know it is safe in my pocket or bag.

Hello Michal, in maketheone.com's product description, by "Full Edition", we mean that the manufacturing process has included activating the OEM version of Windows 8.1 (32bit) with Bing for Stick ("for Stick" differentiates it from other versions) from the key purchased in bulk, legitimately, from Microsoft, and downloaded directly from Microsoft server. So no more activation nor purchase on your end is required. And by trial version, we mean that consumers have the liberty to purchase other versions of Windows from Microsoft, so the cost varies, depending on the versions you see fit to your needs, ranging from 69.99 to 199.99, all supported by the current Meegopad T01 hardware. For your reference, here is Microsoft Store link: http://www.microsoft...goryID.62684800 Hope this is useful.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Intel's stick is more then likely going to also have Windows 8.1 with Bing.

 

 

Windows 8.1 with Bing

 

http://www.howtogeek...ve-to-use-bing/

The good news is that you don’t really need to care whether a device comes with Windows 8.1 with Bing or just Windows 8.1.


Windows 8.1 with Bing “comes with Bing as the default search engine within Internet Explorer.”
For computer manufacturers, this means they can’t cut a deal with Google to offer Google as the default search engine and make an additional profit. To get that free copy of Windows, their computers will have to come with Bing as the default search engine — hence “Windows 8.1 with Bing.”

 

Note that even standard editions of Windows 8.1 come with Bing set as the default search engine in Internet Explorer. This means that there’s actually no functional difference between the core version of Windows 8.1 and Windows 8.1 with Bing — the only restriction is that computer manufacturers can’t change the default search engine before shipping the computer to you.

Thx, I didn't know.

 

Does it come with Secure Boot enabled and if so, can it be turned off?

 

I may want to put Linux on it or may be even Windows 7.

 

I can get the device off eBay.

The one i received shows secure boot option on bios as off.

 

 

from post 17

http://reboot.pro/to...ackup/?p=191334

BIOS - Security-Secure Boot menu -

System Mode                        Setup

Secure boot                           not active

 

secure boot                           [disabled]     enabled/disabled

Secure boot mode                  [custom]      standard/custom

 

Cant say if the one on ebay has the preactivated Windows with bing choice. On the maketheone website where i got mine it gives you the option to buy a preactivated windows 8.1 with bing or the windows 8.1 pro 30 day trial preinstalled non activated.

Does the one on ebay says factory activated. Ask the seller.

 

 

I may want to put Linux on it or may be even Windows 7.

 

Post back on how it goes.

Ok thx! I have edited my original post that mentions activation in order to remove confusion. I can get mine for around AU $190. At the time of this post that works about US $147.

Post when you get it and run it. You should be able to create a backup in windows as mention in one of the early posts.

 

 

Here is a way to update bios with youre own image LOGO.

According to the following thread . I added in red letters what version he says doesnt work and which one did.

This user points to where to download MMTool v5.0.0.7  - Works to change bios logo

http://freaktab.com/...0607#post490607

 

no_spam_for_me

Download  MMTool v5.0.0.7.zip    also available at https://onedrive.liv....AmAQaaK2TM88qY

 

 

shinomen

 I found that there is a program called "Change Logo" which will do what I want. I did a google search for "aptio change logo utility download" (sans quotes) which brought me to a page on www.bios-mods.com that had a link to download the program http://www.sendspace.com/file/q00qrb
 

 

shinomen

I was able to run the program Logo Changer 4.55, load the bios and extract the Full Screen MeegoPad logo. I have not modified it and added back yet but I wanted to let others know.

 

Yusi

Did it work?

 

shinomen

No it    Logo Changer 4.55  did not. I extracted the logo but when I add back and try to save the bios file, it says that it cannot write bios file and gives me a file with a size of 0KB. I don't know if there is some sort of write protect on the bios file or if there is another way that I need to do it. If anyone else has ideas or knows how to do this I would be very appreciative.
 

no_spam_for_me

I don't know which version of the "Change Logo" you found...
But e.g. at the "AMI BIOS Configuration Program" (AMIBCP) the newest version which you will find at the internet is 4.55 but at the AMI page (at the picture) you can see that they talk about 5.x, so I wouldn't do any hacks with 4.55 (too risky)...
Maybe the same problem at the "Change Logo" (maybe too old version which isn't able to work with newer BIOS versions)???

 

 

shinomen

Thanks for the clue, good eye. I started to suspect it was an older version I was using that was causing my problem but I had no clue what version to look for before you said something. I have found version 5 at the following website post number 42. You have to register but it's free. I was able to change the logo and save the file successfully. I then was able to extract the logo and it was in fact the new logo. I will be testing flashing later when I get a chance.

 

Zitat von Tito im Beitrag #30 Well, good news! I have something interesting to share ;) Yes, that is really very good news! The result of your work see

 

I was able to successfully flash my bios with my updated logo and it worked perfectly. I kept the image at 1280x800 even though the program complained about the size and it worked!

 

no_spam_for_me

Congratulations
Download  MMTool v5.0.0.7.zip    also available at https://onedrive.liv....AmAQaaK2TM88qY

Now we are only have to find AMIBCP 5.x

Good video, Kedar Nimbalkar at the end of post

 

Shows the inside of the MeegoPad T01. Topics he semi covers but implied: The insides of Meegopad, able to Replace CMOS batterry,
Able to Change / Replace  wifi antenna, Heatsinks inside, he does not cover how to actually open the Meegopad ( should be easy, he says) ; he does show where the case holding clips are Meegopad case clips.jpg (this other unrealated video gives a good example on how it could be opened ) or use Plastic Opening Tools.

Replace MeegoPad T01 CMOS batterry.

Meegopad CMOS battery reset bios.jpg

Unpluging CMOS batterry might Reset Bios settings.  If you've made changes to you're BIOS and you are not able to boot with a USB Device or cant boot up, this might help.

 

http://www.computer-...os-battery.html

The CMOS is a little bit of RAM that stores all the BIOS information so that each time the computer restarts or powers on, the computer can remember this information.  

 

If you didn't have this battery, then each time you turn on your computer, the BIOS settings would reset and you would need to setup your BIOS again. Your computer will function but everything in your BIOS, such as the boot order, and the time and date, and other functions will reset.
