    Hi Jorrick

    I'm not very aware of how's dual boot work on Minix (still waiting for my unit) but I'm very interested by this dual boot configuration (Android by default, Win 10 on USB).
    Do you use Windows To Go (via WinToUsb) ?
    If so, which UEFI BIOS are you using : 64 bits Android version or 32 bits Windows version ?
    Last: how do you configure BIOS to get the "select boot device" screen each time ?
    like in the beginning of

    Tx a lot for your clarifications !(y)

    Hello, I just bought Z64 really cheap. It has windows 10 installed but I would like to dual boot with android. Is there any way to do that without USB?? To create another partition or something?? I see that the last answer is really old, but I hope someone will help :)

    I have tried this USB version. Audio dosent work, wifi dosent work, ethernet dosent work, ir remote dosent work :( I would like original rom on other partition

    @DjBeNI: I have replied to your PM. You can try the newer Android Marshmallow image from Androidx86.
