    Installation Instructions

    1. Prepare an 8GB or 16GB USB memory stick [NTFS format] and change the name to “WINPE”.

    2. Unzip the “OSWIN10RS4US-N42C-4-MINIX-PRO-V03M-20180602.zip” file and then copy all files to USB memory stick root directory.

    3. Connect a keyboard and the USB memory stick to NEO N42C-4. Boot your NEO N42C-4 and press F11, then select “USB stick”. You don’t need to do anything, wait for 15 minutes to finish installing the system.

    When you see below image, click “Cleanup Test” on the desktop.

    Please try re-installing again.
    We have tested multiple times, this image should install correctly.

    Here is a screenshot of the Checksum Calculator.
    I tried to install Windows 10 many times with different USB sticks and failed every time.
    But I found the image of Windows 10 which is installed on my Minix successfully, but I do not have any drivers ...

    I think this is a problem in internal memory, but now it does not matter, I turned it off in BIOS.

    It would be good if you could use this memory as an extra drive.
