Windows 8.1 Installation Instructions
Please feel free to edit this content as needed.
Keep in mind, this will completely remove your ability to run Android. There are other guides for how you can get Android back if you don't want Windows 8. Wendal has also created a good Windows install write-up which you can access here.
Download ADB Fastboot and install. You can get it here
Download the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool and install. You can get it here
Download the x98 and 3G drivers from Wendal's post here.
Grab the following files from cjsutherland's post
- X98_Air_II x3 rar's (I didn't use these. Explained later.)
- WinPE_User_20140814.rar (I didn't use these. Explained later.)
Get a powered USB port ready, your included USB OTG cable, a 4gb minimum USB drive you don't mind formatting, and a USB mouse and keyboard.
I actually downloaded a Windows 8.1 ISO to use instead of the Windows PE edition. I felt this was a bit safer. I have an MSDN account, not everyone does. It's important that if you go this route (or copy the files from a bootable DVD, too!) that you use the 32-bit version of Windows 8.1. I had no luck whatsoever with x64.
From here, you can SOMEWHAT follow the directions from this page, but I'll try to make it easier.
Connect the tablet to your PC where you installed ADB.
Open a command prompt on your PC and, for ease of use, get your FPT-tools-package files in the same location as ADB.
Run ADB push ftp-tools-package /data/local/tmp - if this doesn't work, you can use adb shell cat (google it) to copy individual files to that location.
Run ADB shell
Type CD /data/local/tmp
Type chmod 0777 FPT
Type ./FPT -F X98_Air_II.bin - This will take a while
Next, you'll want to prepare your USB device. Use the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool to burn your Windows 8.1 ISO to your portable media. That will take a while.
Hook up your USB device, keyboard, mouse, etc. to your tablet using the USB hub and OTG cable.
Use your keyboard to get into the bios after a hard reset of the tablet (del key) and go to security. Disable secure boot mode. It may already be disabled. Then, go to boot options and select your USB device that's plugged in as the primary boot device. Save and exit.
After rebooting again, you should start up the windows install. Congrats! Once that's complete, it's time to install drivers. You can do this by right-clicking the INF for each driver (from above) and left-clicking Install.
