I'm dual booting Android 4.2.2 and Windows 8.1 on my Sony Vaio Duo 11, and all is relatively well. However, I've noticed that some apps that are usually available on the Play Store aren't showing up on the Duo 11's Play Store. Once I do find it, it says "Your device isn't compatible with this version".

Manually installing the APK doesn't work, either. The app just doesn't run, crashing on startup.

Does anyone else have any experience with this kind of problem?

First, you have to disable secure boot from within the BIOS settings. To get into it, turn off the Vaio Duo 11, then press the ASSIST button next to the volume buttons.

I used the Generic UEFI Installer for android-4.2.2_r1-ia3, and installed it using an imaged USB drive. Just follow the on-screen instructions, and remember to back up your data first.

Did you disable secure boot?

You might also have to change the boot settings from within Windows as well. The Android installer creates a new boot loader file, but Windows doesn't load it by default due to a bunch of security reasons. You have to mount Windows' hidden boot drive using Diskpart in CMD, then navigate to "EFI/Microsoft/Boot/", backup the existing bootmgfw.efi and copy the gummiboot.efi in its place, renaming it to bootmgfw.efi.

I don't really remember the details, because it's been a while since I last did it, and I sold my Vaio Duo 11 already.
