    Although access to a bios update would be good I have solved enterprise deployment of a z64 windows and Android using macrium reflect, it's even free for personal use amazing.

    Hi everyone
    Does anyone know if z64w box really have 64bit Windows or it just only 32bits? Is there possible to install 64bits in z64a? Can anyone let me know thanks?

    I really need to get 64-bit Windows working (a few apps I need to use are 64 bit only).

    Is this still true?
    So the bios for android is 64 bit, and it allows me to install 64 bit Windows? Only issue is drivers within Windows?
    What drivers are missing?

    It seems like your device shipped with a newer bios? JCRDW 1.53?
    Why isn't that version available as an update?

    I have to say, Minix seems to have the worst costumer service in the world.

    I have the same problem. After i choose built-in efi shell, i see bunch of stuff and after the time runs down, its written shell on the bottom line and nothing start. I tried different usb device. The f11 key doesnt work on startup. I'm using a wireless keyboard. I'm using rufus just like the tuto says. I'm running out of ideas obviously.
    Any help?

    Solved! I used a verbatim usb key. The adata and the unknow brand didn't work.

    Bringing back a long dead thread.
    I've followed the steps, checked that bootai32.efi is in the correct folder but when I cd to the folder it only shows bootx64.efi

    I've flashed the unit back and forth in the past without issues. now I want to go to the windows firmware again but when I boot the efi shell the startup.nsh command hangs and the last line I see is
    startup.nsh>fpt64.efi /f JCRDW143.BIN

    the system per se is not frozen (enter key does nothing but caps lock toggles the keyboard led and ctr-alt-del reboots the unit. I've tried 2 different usb drives with the same result. also manual update in efi shell does not work.

    Any advice to fix this ? otherwise I'll toss it out of the window...

    What is the latest version of Windows Bios?

    Mine says: JCRDW 1.83 from 22 October 2016

    (I found this version and date when booting the UEFI.)
