Guys, im trying to use this device as a simple home automation touchscreen device that just runs as a webapp.

Ive installed windows 10, but the browser support is still so lacking. Are there alternative browsers available?

Failing that, is there any chance of a linux install, even raspbian?

I need it to sit endlessly with a browser open, that's it haha.

Thanks in advance.

The only browser options are 15035 IE11, 15035 Edge or Otter:

Linux is WIP:

Hi, I've tried to install Windows 10 on Surface RT (clean install) several times, but every time i tried to boot Surface from USB get cmd window for one second and then an advanced boot menu.
I tried with different USB keys and different iso images (only windows, with office ..). Do you have any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

Sounds like its working just fine if you selected the option to use the Windows Recovery Environment.

Have you tried doing the following after it boots?
Code:
1. Select keyboard layout.
2. Select "Troubleshoot".
3. Select "Recover from a drive".
4. Select drive cleaning option.
5. Select "Recover" or "Cancel".

    This media builder will download Windows 10 Build 15035 from Archive.org, apply common modifications, install apps, install drivers and generate custom installation media ready for use on the selected device.

    Depending on the options chosen the result will look like one of the pictures above or something in-between. If the Office 2013 RT HSP option is selected the following will be seen when the desktop is reached for this first time, this part of the installation may take between 5 and 30 minutes depending on the update selection that is made.

    Please be aware that Windows 10 Build 15035 is now four years old and it should not be considered as suitable for daily use, aside from being outdated it has numerous bugs and other issues expected of an expired pre-release build. This builder is just for reducing the number of steps you will need to do before trying the build if you are curious about it. Consider running Windows 10 Build 15035 as novelty value only, it will not make any Windows RT device useful.

    The use of this media builder or the media it produces is entirely at your own risk.


    14/11/2021 - Windows_10_15035_Media_Builder_v1.8c.zip - Download - Mirror: Anonfiles
    - Office 2013 RT Home & Student Plus update lists updated to November 2021.
    - Writing to a USB drive larger than 32GB will now provide a warning and only 32GB of storage on the drive will be used.

    Not all included apps are tested, some may be end-of-life or otherwise unreliable. Auto app update is disabled by default, if the Store is allowed to update itself to a version newer than that included it will not be able to install new apps from the store.

    Known Issues:

    - Relies on Archive.org for Windows 10 and Office 2013 RT downloads, unfortunately the download speed can be very slow. Office Language Packs and Updates are downloaded directly from Microsoft and are not affected.

    - Cannot currently produce working images for Qualcomm devices (Dell XPS 10, Nokia Lumia 2520 & Samsung Ativ Tab).

    - Windows 10 Build 15035 is available in English only, there are no 15035 Language Packs are available. There are one or two third party language packs that were created from other builds but the Media Builder does not support them at this time.

    - Display artefacts during Windows Setup on Surface 2. If anyone knows how the Tegra graphics driver can be made to work in Windows PE please let me know. This issue or something similar is also present on Surface RT and probably the other Tegra 3 devices however it is considerably less noticeable.

    - If Cortana is removed the Cortana intro page towards the end of OOBE is still present, I have not found a method to remove this page. None of the methods used on more recent versions of Windows apply to this build.

    How to use:

    The kit is to be run on an x86/x64 PC and not on the target device. On older hardware it can take around one hour excluding download time. To avoid path length limits I recommend this is extracted to the root of your hard drive, for example "D:\Windows_10_15035_Media_Builder_v1.8c\". Once the archive is extracted run "Build.cmd" as administrator and choose your options.

    If you already have a copy of Windows 10 Build 15035 from Betaarchive or from Archive.org and do not wish to download again then your existing 15035 archive can be manually placed in "\Windows_10_15035_Media_Builder_v1.8c\Downloads\Windows".

    Booting the created media is identical to booting standard recovery media for your device, for example on Surface devices you would power on the device with the USB inserted and the volume button held down. Using setup media generated by Media Builder may require secure boot to be disabled depending on the device in use.

    Device Notes:
    • Microsoft Surface RT

      Yahallo is optional however Golden Keys must be removed before Windows 10 setup can be run from USB. Surface RT's are capable of running Windows 10 15035 out of the box, no jailbreak appears to be required.

    • Microsoft Surface 2

      Yahallo is required and Golden Keys must be removed before Windows 10 setup can be run from USB.

    • Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11

      Running Windows 10 setup from USB is not currently possible on this device, to use Windows 10 on this device an install.wim generated by the Media Builder must be manually applied to a device already jailbroken with Golden Keys.

    • ASUS VivoTab RT

      Running Windows 10 setup from USB is not currently possible on this device, to use Windows 10 on this device an install.wim generated by the Media Builder must be manually applied to a device already jailbroken with Golden Keys.

      Media Builder is not currently capable of producing a working image for this device.

    How do I activate Windows?
    Once connected to the internet it will happen automatically eventually if you selected the option during image build, the KMS is not always up though.

    My bad, i was sure i have Surface RT. Everytning works now. Thank you so much
    No problem, glad it worked.

    @jwa4 if downloaded for office or language pack is breaks for some reasons so after next launch builder is just skip redownload office and stop if those files are rong. maybe it is good to delete it and redownload?
    I will fix this in the next release but if the downloads for Office got interrupted you can delete the contents of:
    Code:
    D:\Windows_10_15035_Media_Builder v1.6b\Downloads\Office\Downloads\
    2
    I've been looking but I'm not sure how to do it
    by chance you will have the commands I do not want to break anything
    Unfortunatley I have never used any of them, I did briefly try to add the option of applying the Russian Language pack to the mod kit but it caused various issues.

    the store does not work for me, how can I solve it? or how to install apps without the store?

    is there a way to go back to w8.1?

    View attachment 5267847
    Store is working here, is it possible the store has been updated on your installation? The last version of the Store that will work normally is 11706.1001.26.0. For manual installation you can grab Appx files using https://store.rg-adguard.net/

    To go back to 8.1 you can grab the official recovery image for your device from https://support.microsoft.com/surfacerecoveryimage
