    New Guy - Desperate - How to complete re-install

    T300 Chi F1. Gorgeous machine- main device for several years.
    It became unstable tried to do reset. Massive failure.
    Have spent best part of a week, literally attempting to get this machine running again.

    Any help appreciated:

    Q1. Looking for Thread. Here are steps to reset with or without saving data.
    Keyboard-pad not connecting. System randomly going to sleep or logging off. This is an original Win8 device updated to Win 10 when first purchased.

    Q2. Or looking for advice on where to get, how to install the dock/keyboard/pad software (Bluetooth) which worked until last week.

    Q3. After getting keyboard to work, looking for advice/thread on how to re-install a stable version of windows 10 that does not wipe the chi specific drivers and software needed to make dock and screen work.

    Given all the websites and correspondence I've sorted thru, this appears to be the most appropriate place to look for those answers. And the existing threads all show similar issues that may or may not be fixed by a clean re-install.
    I am only at the clean re-install stage because I fear this machine has become a brick.

    Thanks for any help.

    Does it still POST (boot) to the OS? If it still boots, prep a bootable Windows install USB stick (google if you need info on how to do this). Get into the BIOS (hold vol+down button when booting) and disable secure boot. Connect/use an OTG usb adapter or hub and repeat the process to use the menu and boot from the Windows USB stick you just made. Reinstall Windows.

    Reply greatly appreciated.

    I have managed to navigate the Bios and disable secure boot. (had no idea this existed)
    Then booted from USB Win10 media creation tool.

    None of this is easy because of the keyboard issue. USB Keyboard via hub is really needed.

    Now I am banging my head over Windows Setup error code 0x8007025D

    Google many sites. Lots of people appear to find that this means there is some sort of hardware problem. memory? ssd? Win10 partitioning?

    Feels like gloom and doom!

    Any suggestions appreciated. (yes I am getting a new daily driver. Hate to give up on this beautiful machine. But it needs the attention of a high-end sports car mechanic!)

    Again----thank you for very helpful response.

    Bob P
