    Someone asked me how to.

    Sadly I don’t know, so I thought I would ask on here.

    At this stage he only knows it is a Zaith and it’s not old. My search found

    Zaith 10.1 Android Nougat Tablet (not sure if it is this)

    He brought the Zaith to play a game? on, to find it doesn’t work and he needs a Windows 10 Laptop.

    Rather than purchase a laptop, he heard you can install Windows 10 on it but the android needs wiping first.

    Does anyone understand me and can tell me how to get Windows 10 on it.

    Maybe you can’t, but I don’t know.

    Cheers
    John

    If it is the one in the above link, and seeing only 1 GB of RAM, it does not sound hopeful:

    While Windows OS does have the advantage of being more “work task friendly” this can become a notoriously slow and sluggish operating system if running it with only 1GB RAM. ”

    Depends on the Game he wants to play John.  However, I found this, “Installing 10 on a super-cheap tablet”:

    It does require a keyboard to do it (according to the text) but it looks like the Zaith either comes with one, or a KB can be ordered for it. Wait for more knowledgeable Forumites to advise you further, that is the limit of my Google-acquired knowledge.🤓

    I doubt it’ll run it John. Even if it does it’ll be dog slow, 1GB of RAM from what I can see, hardly enough to run basic Android games let alone with the Windows bloat in tow.

    Thanks Bob he told me it has a keyboard, I will check your link

    If it is the one as you and PM say dog slow, it won’t be worth it.

    I will see if I can find out a little more about it.

    Cheers

    It’s not for a game, it’s a leggo building program.

    I will have the tablet over the weekend and will know more about it.

    what Arnold always says

    (much appreciated)

    It’s the SoC that bothers me, can’t find out if it’ll run Windows at all, I doubt it.

    I may well have missed something as I’m knackered.

    PM what’s SoC

    I have read bits on the internet and it says I need changemysoftware10.

    I have been on loads of links, ended up with filling in forms loads of toolbars, but never got to download Change My Software 10.

    I have downloaded Chang My Software 7 – 8 – 8.1 but I need 10.

    It lets you connect your PC to the android.

    By any chance does anyone have Change My Software 10.

    Cheers

    I have a dual boot Android/Windows 10 pad. It works OK for all the basics but Windows grabs most of the storage space i.e. a limited ability to add many Android apps. Not really a recommended route – interesting but somewhat impractical.
