    [GUIDE][HOW TO]Windows 10 TP 9926 on Asus T200

    New to forums, and had to post this.

    Yes, it can be done . Not very easily. Because the Asus T200 ships with WIMboot, you have to re-install windows 8 on this puppy. Recommend to ONLY do this on the 64GB/4GB ram version.

    1st step - MAKE A RECOVERY USB FROM FACTORY Windows 8.1 WIMboot install. (PLEASE)
    2nd step - Follow this: How to download the official Microsoft Windows 8.1 ISO - CNET
    you will need an actual legit product key. This allows you to download the installer. Run the installer, and make a USB installer (seperate from the one you used above).
    3rd step - Decide whether to use 8 or 8.1 as the install base. Windows 8 poses a serious problem, as most of the drivers from asus T200 support website do NOT work, since they were all built for windows 8.1. I, unfortunately only had a windows 8 product key, so I had to install using that. Since I got the LAN driver working, and not the wifi, under windows 8, I had to fudge my way through all the updates, for windows 8, while using the ethernet cable in the standard LAN port. (Windows 8.1 won't download and install from the windows store, until you apply most of the windows 8 updates.). While running through the install, be sure to completely WIPE the partitions on the internal ROM space. After you click create partition, necessary partitions will be created. (including system partitions)
    4th step - After FINALLY getting windows 8.1 installed, you'll notice there are about 10-12 missing drivers in device manager. IE (Bluetooth, GPS, Sensors, touchscreen, WIFI, Intel SOA, etc). Be sure to download and install all the device drivers that are showing up missing. get it ALL working.
    5th step - Download Windows 10 TP 9926 - you can get this for free..
    6th step - install windows 10, apply updates, check device manager, viola...


    Keys:
    -Get a fresh install of windows 8.1 installed, (NOT WIMboot version, that it ships with), and get ALL the drivers working.
    -You cannot install windows 10 TP 9926 on top of Windows 8.1 WIMboot version. Windows 10 detects that as a "Compressed" OS, and won't let you install.
    -DO NOT try and install windows 10 TP 9926 directly from windows 8. (You need everything working with 8.1), first.

    I must say, I am quite pleased. EVERYTHING works. and the OS tweaks in 10 are far better than 8.1 ever was. I did not even think of taking screenshots, and creating a comprehensive guide. Maybe later.

    Be sure after windows 10 installs, to run the administrative disk cleanup utility to remove the 15GB of the WINDOWS.OLD directory, since it leaves the windows 8 stuff there...

    Is there no way to extract the product key that came with the tablet and use that for the product key during re-installation of 8.1?

    I think there certainly is. There is software available that can extract product keys.
    I know that usually if you find the right OEM. Iso version of windows to re install, the installation will recognize the product key stored in the Bios.

    Yes, you can . I have previously done it as well, follow my post here.

    As Gtanner said, if you have the right OEM ISO version, during installation it will recognize the product key stored in the Bios.

    What about 32 gb / 4gb version? I suppose I have to delete all the partitions.
    But I don't think I would install it before official release in late summer, my doubts are how ASUS will update my T200?

    Okay, here's my situation, and I want to see if anyone else has tried this before I do. I've got the 8.1 installation media on a USB thumb drive. Basically, I need to wipe all the partitions on the SSD and install it, then update everything, then install 10. Do I have that right? Is this working properly for anyone else?

    I can't access any wireless network. The driver is "working" as per the device manager - Broadcom WLAN SDIO - 5.93.103.6. I tried .8 and .10 and none work. What wireless drivers did you use?

    thanks

    Why can I not just start a Windows 10 custom installation and repartition the flash drive to me liking and install Windows 10 as done for previous Windows versions (7. 8. 8.1)?

    Don't care if I loose the recovery partition.

    PS Is there any way to access a boot menu by pressing required key(s) during start up?
    Or only way to change boot order is by accessing BIOS via F2 and Power button during start up?
