    Good morning, my z64 with Windows 10 is smooth like silk, I am a rookie and I apologize, but how do I get to the bios? what is the key combination?

    are you sure? I tried it with 3 different keyboards, but to no avail.
    Unfortunately, the screen is slightly over-scan so I can not read the bottom left confirming the esc key.
    what is the little hole at the bottom of the unit? to reset the bios?
    you know what the latest version of bios available?
    Thanks a lot for your patience

    BIOS [ESC] or [DEL]
    Boot Menu [F11]

    As soon as you see the blue LED press the appropriate key.

    unfortunately it does not work, I hope I never need!
    Others have the same problem? there is no way to reset the bios via hardware to its original condition?

    I bought the Z64 Windows model and mine came with W10 installed and every thing is working just fine so far.

    Two times i've upgraded to win 10 from win 8 on my pretty newly built pc. And two times the ****er has malfunctioned so i had to format and reinstall win 8 again.
    This is whats happens.
    Webpages, downloads and the mouse begins to act slower and slower, this continues until you get so tired of it so you decide to restart win 10. And then when you reboot everythings seems normal until you are going to log into windows. All of a sudden there is no login bars for the password. There seems to be no mouse or keyboard support. Well thats whats happened to me, so here i am stuck on win 8.

    When clicking the Windows 10 update icon on the system tray I still get the message 'We're validating Windows 10 for your PC'. Is this a process that Minix is involved with? Will the device ever be validated or should I give up waiting and just install using the manual tool?

    It does get a little hot to the touch but I believe it is normal and nothing to worry about.

    I just got my new Minix NEO Z64 Windows 10 edition
    when trying to play video/music there is no sound
    (i'm using the original HDMI cable, when moving back to TV, no issues with the sound)
    when i'm playing YouTube video I can see in 'volume mixer' that the speakers green bar is 'alive' but no sounds

    any ideas? I can't find any solution so far...

    Hi everybody. I upgraded my Minix Z64 to Windows 10 some months ago and everything worked fine.
    Yesterday I tried a clean installation to Windows 10 November Update with media creation tool and everything is working fine.
    The only problem is that my Minix does not hibernate. I have tried all the solutions found on the internet but nothing works.
    Did someone has my same problem? Any suggestion?
