    Lightbulb Remix OS [Alpha, booted and working fine]

    Hello everyone!
    Sorry for my bad English, it's not my native language.

    I've managed to run RemixOS on T100TA in "Live USB" mode (Unfortunately, Persistent mode doesn't work for me now)
    So, a little How-To:

    1. Go to official website, read all info and scroll down till you see download options
    2. Download EFI Package. In archive you'll see an utility to burn image to USB Disk (probably it's a fork of unetbootin)
    3. Reboot T100TA and press F2 to enter UEFI. Disable Secure Boot.
    4. Reboot and enter UEFI again, choose your flash drive as "override boot" option.
    Here you may choose, whether you want "Guest mode" (true LiveUSB) or "Persistent mode" (a separate partition will be created on your flash drive to store data between reboots)
    You may encounter "No system.sfs found" error, but that's fine, your system will boot. This may take a while so please be patient.

    Finally RemixOS will be booted.
    There's no Google Play pre-installed (RemixOS is made in China, where GP, as far as I know, is prohibited), no way to see battery level (it's alpha!) and may be some problems to change keyboard layout. To switch between Russian and English with Alt+Shift I used External Keyboard Helper Pro app.
    Here're some screenshots (sorry, first one in Russian)

    P.S. Could you tell me, if I install this OS instead of Windows, how can I install Windows again later?

    P.P.S. Some problems found: couldn't get persistent mode to work (black screen with cursor), only guest mode works fine for now; VLC crashes when trying to change current position and not all .avi files play sound (though sound works nice)

    Thank you for sharing this!

    I will try it as well.

    Can you keep Windows? Does touchscreen functionality work?

    Well, "Persistent" mode didn't work for me: Black screen with cursor. Maybe should wait till next release.
    However, "Guest Mode" ( = LiveUSB) works fine. And yes, it keeps Windows installed on device. After I finish having fun with RemixOS, I turn on SecureBoot and boot into Windows 10.
    Both touchscreen and touchpad work, even two-fingers "pinch to zoom" forks. However, didn't test 3+ fingers.

    You can have both windows and remix installed. Only requirement is to have SecureBoot disabled all the time.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/RemixOS/com..._already_have/
    Guide is for legacy version (because i guess they published EFI version today) but I assume with EFI version step about downloading Android x86 is not necessary.

    But I'd like to completely remove Windows, but have chance to restore it later...

    Has anyone gotten the beta working?

    I can access it from the GRUB screen, and it appears to boot, but when boot, it just has a black screen. Nothing can be done but a hard reset.

    I disabled secure boot and bitlocker, but I am out of ideas on how to get this working.

    I don't know if its something obvious but someone tried to install it on hard disk in T100? I tried but nothing happens, just less free storage.

    It's working great installed on my T100TA. I used this to install it instead of the included installer:
