On like me, I’m not a really big fan of the Android version of the tablet. but what I want to specifically talk about is how to fix issues with the windows OS in your dual OS tablets or laptops.
if it happens the windows OS of the tablet or laptop is buggy or you feel like you want to like reinstall clean Windows 10. I will teach you step by step process and requirement in order for you to perform the process without any problems.
I will drop a link to a YouTube video that I made some years back. This method will work on most Chinese dual OS devices. But the specific device I will be working on is the teclast t-book 11.
1. A USB adaptor with 3 ports
2. A mouse
3. A keyboard
4. A USB flash drive
(N.B. IF YOUR TABLET HAS A KEYBOARD, YOU MAY ONLY NEED THE USB ADAPTER.)
1. A working computer
2. Go to the manufacturer’s website to download the system file of your device or tablet with your device ID,
(A picture of how to locate your device ID will be included of your tablet) N.B the link provided here is for the tablet manufacturer we are working on. So go to your device manufacturer to download the device files.
After downloading the device file, extract it to a new folder. Because normally at the device file is in RAR file format. Download your device files for teclast from theDOWNLOAD LINK.
3. A window 10 iso. Download Windows 10 64bit iso
4. Rufus-2 debugger software. Download Rufus-2
5. Download the driver of your device.
(It’s really important you download the drivers of your device because after reinstalling Windows. Most of the windows functionality like Wi-Fi, the touchscreen Bluetooth will not work.
You will need to install the drivers individually in order to in order to restore all those functions. so that’s why it’s really important.) Download tbook11 drivers.
N.B: To start this process, you need to fully charge make sure your tablet is charged 100% because the process might take some time, and you may not be able to charge the tablet.
So it’s the best advice if you charge the tablet fully first before you start. Pictures demo will also be included.
After making sure you download all the necessary files, device files, Windows 10 Iso, the driver’s files and the Rufus-2 software, and a flash drive ready to be used, you are all set.

Open Rufus again, go to the bottom and the options answers format options, tango the arrow for more options and then go to select format you select from the list the last one which says UEFI/NTFS as shown in the picture.
This will prepare the flash drive to UEFI/NTFS so that the tablet can recognize the drive.
After the process, there will be two files in the USB drive.
After the process, you have to copy the Windows 10 files that were saved in the PC back to the USB flash drive. But this time, in the process of copying the files back into the USB flash drive.
Do not replace any file only if it happens to have a problem during process and a notification pops up. Select skip them because they are files which will make the device recognise that it is a bootable USB device.
Now after completed the process of copying the Windows 10 files. now go to the device files folder that we previously extracted the device file to, open the folder, locate the window folder, open it, copy all the files in the window folder.
Now go back to the USB flash drive and paste all the device files which you copied, please if there is any pop-up saying there are similar files inside the USB flash drive folder, just skip it. Don’t replace any file that is already inside the USB drive.
When the process is completed. our USB is set and ready to be used as a bootable USB device to restore your windows OS of the tablet or device.
First, configure the bios set up, pls use the original, female cable that came with your tablet, now plug in the USB adaptor and plug the keyboard to read.
