    [Pipo X7] OS Official Windows 8.1

    Here is a link to the entire Windows 8.1 firmware package for the Pipo X7.

    It's rather large, so instead of downloading it and putting it on our FTP server...I'm just providing the Baido link.

    Did they explain how to use it?
    I guess once I DL it I will have a look. Probably an .ISO you have to put on USB stick.

      I've started downloading it. It's 8 rar files that are each around 700mb....this will take a while.

      When I extract it I will report what I find.

      I agree, it's likely a DVD img file.

        Well it is not an ISO but is the boot disk files. You have to make a bootable USB drive yourself then copy all the files over to it.

          By the way I did some research.

          This is Windows 8.1 with bing. This is a version of 8.1 that Microsoft provides to laptop makers etc for free! There are no license fees!

          It's basically windows 8.1 core with bing as the default search provider (which can be changed by you).

          Also good luck to ANYONE wanting to do a system restore using the recovery disk. It's all in Chinese even if you select US English!

            Because I'm new at windows 8.x ... What does it mean?
            Do I have to enter an E-Mail-address during the installation where I will find this ID?

            It is not a requirement and you can simply create a local user account to log into the device. (called a local account in the setup window)

            So you will need to already have a ******@hotmail.com or ******@bing.com email address before you can activate windows

              You do NOT need to activate this version of windows! Trust me... I have restored several times now from the recovery partition (factory) and not once did I ever get asked to activate!

              So not sure what everyone else was talking about there.

              Also when you setup you DO NOT have to make a live account. You can make a offline account if you read carefully and click the link. While I do have a live account I have yet to use it so far for all the hacking I am doing

                FYI my first priority it to give you guys a new boot.wim file that you put on the recovery disk so recovery is in FREAKIN ENGLISH!

                  Not sure what to quite make of this.

                  This video shows how to re-image the Pipo tablet. I guess the process is the same for the X7?

                  http://www.pipo.cn/bbs/forum.php?mod...extra=page%3D1

                  The download looks like a complete boot disk so this video doesn't make sense.
                  Seems like they are making a WinPE disk and adding the images from the X7 download

                  I will figure it out I guess.

                    once you have logged in as user, you can backup up with macrium (search google ), it is free for non commersial users
                    you can backup partitions or whole disk, and restore in linux or windows pe inviroment from usb stick

                        For several years, Microsoft has used an ID system for activating or utilizing some of their software and services. If you have a Hotmail, MSN, Bing or Live account, you already have a Microsoft ID.

                        The first time you turn on the X7, or after you restore the firmware...you will be asked to create a login. The most obvious option available is to enter a Microsoft ID. If you look at the choices on the screen, however...you can also choose an offline user account which doesn't require the Microsoft ID to be entered.

                        With the Microsoft ID, your username and password can be used further in using your device...if you decide to run Office 360 or any of the Live apps. It's also much like entering your Google account with regard to accessing and installing apps from the Microsoft App Store.

                        If you choose to make an offline account...like Bob has done, you can still perform the above functions, but you will be prompted to create or enter your Microsoft ID to do so.

                        I was in such a hurry to start using my X7 that I didn't pay attention to the screen, and only saw the Microsoft ID prompt...since I have one, I just entered it. Bob looked a little closer and found the option to set up an offline user account.

                        Either way, you have to do this initially to set up your login.

                        I hope that explains the ID a little bit better.

                          OK Just playing around I installed my MSDN Win 7 Pro. It installed fine BUT.... no drivers for a lot of the hardware

                          I also managed to find a ISO of Win 8.1 with Bing. I installed that no problem but again no drivers.

                          Thus I had no Ethernet or Wifi. So I plugged in a USB Ethernet stick and Win 8 installed it not problem. Then I went online to update drivers. If found one for the built in Ethernet but could not find any for the other stuff.

                          Also tried to boot a EFI for Win8 64 bit. Wont boot. BIOS is a 32 bit BIOS yet the processor supports 64 bit
                          So one thing I would like Pipo to do is give us

                          1) A driver package for Win 8.1
                          2) A AMI BIOS that is 64 bit

                            I've found this set of drivers from Pipo. I think it's for their tablets...but wifi and ethernet might work.

                              Thanks, I will try it!
                              I am also extracting the drivers from the base install.

                              I so want my Win 8.1 Pro on this

                              Then I will image to a bootable USB stick so I can dual boot!
