    Re: Win 10 on a tablet

    mmmmmm don't know if this would work

    4 Port Micro USB Host OTG Hub Power Adapter Cable for Android Phone Tablet PC UK

    but if its like a computer it would pick up both the windows installation and a usb mouse so you could install it without the touch screen

    or just plug in your Rufus-created microSD card in the OTG/USB adapter

    and soon as you have to use the touch screen to continue installing take Rufus-created microSD card out , slap in your mouse and click install ect and slap Rufus-created microSD card back in

    just thinking outside the box ??? @trevortron m8

    Funny isn't it how great minds think alike? I had a similar idea- I was using a USB keyboard (not a mouse) and it has a USB socket on it for a mouse. So I tried putting the microSD card into that (via an adapter of course!), the tablet did appear to 'see' (as an additional device showed up on the list of options) it but it wouldn't install. I might try a different USB hub when I get a minute, but for now real life beckons!
    In the meantime I've ordered one of those, it looks like a handy gadget to have anyway. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Quick update: I got one of these-

    Win 10 on a tablet-otgh-jpg
    and it works like a charm! Well, in as much as it allows me to use a keyboard, mouse and memory stick simultaneously. Win10 appears to have installed OK, but on booting, a DOS-type window appears post-install updating something or other, disappears then blank screen. But at least it's progress, I will have another stab at it when I get bored.
