You're quite rude considering you're the one who needs help.

I do actually know of an app that you could try but because I don't like your attitude I'll leave you to find it for yourself.

Bye

I recently got a Cube i6 (Wi-Fi only) with Android 4.4 + Windows 10 Pro from gearbest.

The device worked fine, but I found two issues. One I found a solution in your forum, but another I am not able to sort out. Any assistance is much appreciated.

Problem 1:
When running Windows update, all the smaller updates go along fine after the first or second attempt. however when it comes to "Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586", the upgrade is downloaded, but fails with the error "We couldn't update the system reserved partition". How can I overcome this?

I wrote to cube-tablet.com, but got a support response saying sort it out with your reseller, even though its not a hardware issue :(

Problem 2:
The switch from Android to Windows 10 is seamless as there is an icon in the notification panel called "OS Switch". On Windows 10 though there is a problem named the same, it refuses to run. I found that I could switch from Windows 10, but manually running the "Insyde Dual OS WMI Service", which prompts me to carryout the OS switch, and on confirmation it proceeds. However why the app provided cannot do it, or why this service refuses to auto-start I have not been able to resolve.

I already have windows 10.. Error message is for the update version 1511, 10586. Not for upgrade.
If i flash again windows 10, I would have a completely clean version of Windows 10, but when it will to update again with this version, I would have the same message right?

OK so, i have not the solution but i have the reason of error.
In cube i6 air, the reserved system partition was not created. Its content is in a hidden file name C:/Recovery
Windows does not find this essential partition for updates, and displays the error

I tried to lower the windows partition and create a separate partition, but i can't activate it, probably because of the incredible number of already existing partitions.
Furthermore, why it there so many partition for android ??? 16 ?
For now I am at this point

ok one solution might be to increase the size of the partition "active & boot". But it's impossible because partitions just near are android partition. So it can not be resized to take this place for the first. Windows partition is in last place and resizing it is useless because this place is too far from the boot partition.
Grrrrrrr ..

Since I was getting the Error I tried doing a Windows recovery, and I seem to have bricked the device :(

1. Started recovery from Windows 10, and selected the quick recovery
2. The system rebooted and took around 1 hour to get to 5%, I thought it was stuck and rebooted.
3. It started again, and this time to complete 5% it took over 1.5HRS, and then it got stuck at 50%. Event after keeping it for 3 hours at 50% it did not budge (I had power connected)
4. I powered off the device, and this time when I rebooted I get the error Windows installation is corrupted, and it refuses to proceed or restart the recovery.
5. When I go to the BIOS menu (POWER + Volume UP), only two menus cycle the rest are not reachable. Menu options available are CONTINUE and RESTORE from FILE. However seems like the touch does not work, so there is no way of selecting this either.

Lesson, don't do a Windows recovery on this device :(

As my previous post mentioned, I seem to have bricked my device. Anyone who can help.

1. Anyone who can point me to a system image of this device (Windows 10 + Android 4.4) that I could use to restore
2. Process how I can go about restoring the device?

Or is there anyway I can restart the Windows 10 recovery, as its only partially complete which is causing the problem?

    I'm waiting on a delviery from DHL today, the Cube i6 dual OS. It's very similar to the dual boot Teclast X98 Air 3G and the Onda v919. However this time it's in black! The others you can only get in white. It's lacking HDMI unlike the X98 Air 3G and only comes in 32GB for now. It also has the slight slower Z3735F 1.8ghz CPU. But I have heard good things about cube's build quality so it will be interesting to see how it compares to the Teclast 98 Air 3G and the Onda V919 Air 3G. I'll update this post with an unboxing video, hands on and first impressions. I ordered this from geekbuying.com instead of Ali Express as my sellers on Ali Express didn't seem to have stock and geekbuying.com has paypal.

    First impressions:

    The build quality of the Cube i6 is a step up from my Onda v919 or Teclast X98 Air 3G, I love the way the microsd card slot and micro sim card tray is done. It's a nice touch. Overall the tablet feels very solid in hand it feels better than the other retina tablets I've owned. There is no sighs of the tablet flexing, it's very solid. Thickness is around 9mm, so a bit thicker than the X98 Air 3G.

    Antutu score is 31k, this is just behind the LG G3 according to the chart. The Android rom is really nice, a very stock looking Android rom with no bloat (Well if you count the facebook app) Windows 8.1 Bing actives withotu any issues and Windows everything is working just fine.

    Pros:
    • Best build quality I have seen yet on a Chinese retina iPad air clone.
    • Mirco sim slot and not a normal sim slot.
    • Comes in black
    • Stock Android rom is bloat free and very Nexus like.
    • GPS, 3G
    • WiDi / Miracast works.
    • Battery life as good as my Teclast X98 Air 3G

    Cons:
    • No HDMI port
    • MHL doesn't seem to be supported
    • The screen has a slight grain to it as if it has a matte screen under the touch screen glass.

    Overall:
    I think if your in the market for a dual boot tablet, the Cube i6 shouldn't be overlooked if you can live with the lack of Hdmi output. The price of $209 with the discount coupon is cheaper than the Onda v919 or Teclast X98 Air 3G dual boots.
