Installing Windows 10 on Acer Iconia W3-810 that wont boot

Hi guy´s,

Today’s guide is about a Acer Iconia W3-810 that would not boot, basically this tablet got stuck at 10% trying to update itself to Windows 10. After a few hours at 10%, we were pretty sure that it wasn’t going anywhere anytime soon… so we did a clean install of Windows 10.

Before you get started, you will need the following tools and software:

To get windows 10, you can go to this Microsoft link and download the MediaCreationTool

To get Rufus Tool, you can go to this Rufus Website and download the tool.

 

Start by following these steps:

1. Using the Rufus tool, start by creating a bootable USB drive, compatible with the UEFI GPT partition table. Also select the file system as 32bits.

2. Turn on the tablet and press <F2> when the Acer logo appears.

3. Use the mouse to navigate to the boot menu tab and adjust the boot sequence by moving the USB disk to the first entry.

4. Save the changes and the tablet will boot from the USB stick.

5. Wait a few minutes to complete the USB boot.

(if you still cant boot with your usb drive, then go back to the Bios and disable the security settings, you will need to create a security password in order to be able to disable this option)

6. Install Windows and follow the normal steps of installation. (We deleted all partitions, mainly because after previously upgrading from windows 8 to Windows 8.1, the recovery partitions normally don’t work)

7. Install Drivers found at the Acer website.

8. Connect to the internet and Activate Windows. (Since your Windows 8.1 product code is stored in the Bios chip, Windows will activate automatically).

    Hi

    I was wondering if you have had any display issues with installing Windows 10 on it? Eg: The Windows Mail app, Edge won’t display properly… Any ideas on how to fix it? Also I noticed in device manager that the Gpio Virtual Controller isn’t functioning…

    Cheers

      Hi Kiz,

      Sorry for the late reply… I didn’t have any issues with my display (Did you install the drivers from the Acer Site?)
      Since you are having a few issues with Apps, i would likely think that it would be an installing issue, so probably the first thing to do would be to Reinstall everything again, but try another flash drive (just in case). If the problem persists, then try updating Windows to see if the updates solve any software related issues. And remember to install all available drivers from the Acer Website so you can rule out any driver issue.
      Hope you get it sorted out 😉
      Happy Repairing and best regards.

      Hi,

      Are you trying to install Windows 10, or another O.S? Because it seems that is a driver issue that is causing it… Can you try installing win8 just to check?

      Best regards.
