how to reinstall win10 (and dual boot option)

format a usb key to fat32 and label it WINPE (very important)
then exctract win10 teclast edition to the root or your usb key X98.Plus(3G)Win10.2016.03.03.rar here ! for model A5C8,A6C7 and A6C9

then connect the usb key and keyboard to the tablet
turn on te tablet and hit F7 on keyboard and choice your usb key
the installer will start and you will get blue screen error (thats normal !)
wait the tablet reboot and hit again F7 and choice your usb key
do that until the installer start to install win10
and voila win10 and android are installed

Win10 Only install (delete android)
just use this file... remplace WIMPART.TXT inside images folder with this one

Tips Tweak Help :

Win10 :
reduce lag :
Turn OFF the sliders for most of Microsoft’s privacy settings. Google search is your friend here
* In settings>>ease of access>>other options turn OFF Show visual feedback and Play animations
* In settings>>devices>>typing turn ON Add standard keyboard and Show Touch Keyboard
* In settings>>privacy>>background apps and turn OFF any of the apps that you don’t use
* Long press the taskbar speaker icon>>playback devices>>properties>>system effects>>turn OFF Equalizer
* Put Windows Defender on the shelf and install a better firewall/antivirus solution. I use Zone Alarm free Antivrus + Firewall
* Install an acurate battery taskbar icon like BatteryBar

Fix time after changing switch between Android and WIndows

Run regedit.exe. It is located (C: \ Windows \ regedit.exe)
Opens this way the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ the SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ the Control \ TimeZoneInformation \
Right-click on ( TimeZoneInformation ) - select - New -> DWORD parameter (32bit)
New option to rename RealTimeIsUniversal
Double-click to open RealTimeIsUniversal and change RealTimeIsUniversal key ( 0 ) to ( 1 ).
Set the current time and the time zone in hours and restart the system, check the time (corrected to correct the last time, if necessary)))
Reboot in Android then back to Windows and check again their time.

Touch screen improvement :

Run regedit.exe. It is located (C: \ Windows \ regedit.exe)
Inside Registry Editor window left pane follow this path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\TouchPredict ion.
Under the TouchPrediction folder (inside left pane), double-click on Latency value (inside right pane).
When new window opens up, change the default value from 8 to 2.
inside right pane double-click on SampleTime value. change the value from 8 to 2.
restart your Device.

Much appreciated sir, you are indeed a gentleman. In order to avoid further confusion is it possible to add the model number A5C8 to the thread heading if you think it would help. I guess it is not possible to move all the misplaced postings in the Pro thread to here is it ?

SD card in Windows
Now that we have our own area for the new stock dual boot Plus A5C8 (thanks again Supercowz) I would like to hear from owners of this tablet who successfully have a micro SD over 32 GB usable in Windows 10. There are posts in other forums and (incorrect ) other places on XDA where users, like myself are having issues with no SD visible in Windows but just fine in Android.
Anyone have a 64 GB or over working OK, what brand, speed rating etc. ?

what i think is the SD Card/chip or what ever, is bugged crappy, not working proprelly with some brand/size/chip used is not detected is both side (win or android)
i try arround 10 different sd and size mostly sandisk brand, none was detected
but the one (kingrston 16Gb) as gift the taclast shipped by the seller, was working out of the box
so i end up with only 16Gb for now, sine i can't use 64Gb (sad i have fews in stock ...)
but you can still use some by teawking SD drivers under W10,
some sd card repported working after that ... but not on android, harder to tweak android sd driver/kernel ....
i will receive soon the 128Gb kingston i will see soon

I have a 64Gb Silicon Power class 10 no problem in Android, not seen in Windows. I bought it because the first one I tried was a Patriot 64Gb class 10 and I had the same situation so I thought it might be the brand. At least the Silicon Power is a bit faster. I hope the 128Gb Kingston works for you because of what you probably paid (invested) to get it. Windows seems OK up to 32Gb, i have tried a 32 Gb Verbatim and it is fine. Also 128Gb Lexar USB flash drive is no problem with OTG in both Andoid and Windows but read speed is too slow for video.

Just an afterthought, have you tried formatting one of your 64GB cards to Ext 3/4 to see if Android will see it, mine is fine with Fat32 but I had to format to that because card came as exFat, I tried NTFS on one to check if it would work in Windows but made no difference. Great to see you are getting close on the custom Rom. I have not rooted yet, no real need and an app I use checks for rooting so rather than get in to root cloaking I am pretty happy with stock so far.

I know you say without keyboard but I have the Teclast case and keyboard combo I got from Gearbest and I am really impressed with it. I was expecting typical Chinese "pleather' but it is a textured material, looks really good and seems very durable and the inside is lightly flocked. Tablet clicks in to a plastic hard shell. Keyboard has a metal bottom and attaches magnetically to the case so easily removable without clips etc. and can be positioned anywhere. Keyboard forms the front stop when case is used as a stand so fully adjustable. Tablet folds up excellent in case when keyboard removed and is really well protected. Keyboard has to be packed separately to take it along but not a problem. All cut-outs are perfect but volume and power buttons need a fingernail push, no room for a finger tip but that is good travel safety. Keyboard is great too but lags a little before wake up from sleep. In short I think it is great.
