Ordered my DV8P moments ago. Looking forward to trying this out. Has anyone tried creating a live SD card instead of using the OTG cable?

I've got a tablet with similar hardware - Lenovo Miix 2 8. It cannot boot from SD card. It could be possible to build custom bootloader with SD card support and place it in EFI directory on device, but it's just my speculation, haven't tried to do it yet.

Earlier ITT someone was experience bootloader problems with the Miix that were not being experienced with the dv8p. The tablet itself is not mine but my fiancee's; I have a Surface Pro (1st gen) coming instead so I can do OTG photoshop work. I'll give the dv8p a proper testing before passing it along though. Sometime between the 11th and 14th.

Well I have solution for this,
But your would have to give a section of your SATA(not partition, but only some space)for installing Android(actually Linux)

The only thing you need to get is an x86 ported Android version

Your can get it here: http://www.android-x86.org/

And after downloading a specific version(Android version) just burn the image to a flash drive or dvd and boot from it and install on a partition

REMEMBER YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO USE FILES FROM ANDROID IN WINDOWS

Sadly, Android-x86 doesn't work well on BayTrail tablets: no video, no wifi, boots only to command line.

So does it work? Is it safe? Does the Windows remain intact? What about drivers in Android?

Oh! I didn't knew about that
I never used it
But it might be a one time error?
Give it a try in live mode..
It might work

As for me, I used a Dell inspiron mini 1080
And everything it have were well used
