    MS made it more complicated to get to the UEFI... How To Access The BIOS On A Windows 8 Computer

    However, you can't install Windows 8 on ARM, only RT is meant for ARM and it only comes pre-installed... Though someone did manage to copy a RT install and install it on another ARM device but that's beyond the skills of most average users.

    XDA Developers Forum has been working on jailbreaking RT and porting apps, they've had some success that you can check out... Basically, it is possible to work around the app store with some work but options are still limited since it's ARM and apps need to be ported to work... There's also no guarantee of full compatibility and stability as all this is unofficial and done by fellow users, and of course jailbreaking isn't covered by warranty...

    The RT does not have a BIOS. You will not be able to install full, regular Windows 8 on the VivoTab RT. If you want a similar device that runs full Windows 8, check out the regular VivoTab.

    You can't run x86 code on ARM (natively). That's the entire reason they needed a separate "RT" version. RT is compiled for ARM, Win8 isn't.

    Dude, just sell your vivotab rt and buy the asus infinity if you're going to do this anyway.
