    Hello
    I just got my Chuwi HI10 plus tablet and came to the conclusion, that i probably will get trid off the Win10 installation, which uses up more than half of the 64GB....

    How do I do that? Where do I start reading?
    Should I root the Android 5.1. first?

    Thanks (Please by patient/clear with your answers, I am not very good at this...)

    Basically you can't, well not without a complete custom Android only partition image for the internal storage. Which for this tablet doesn't exist.

    Thank you both for your answer, so let me change the question:

    How can I make the Windows partition on 64GB HD smaller?

    Bliss_x86 won't work? It also has an .exe installer if needed.. (I'm assuming you are referring to a possible lack of BIOS/UEFI in that tablet then?

    It should have BIOS/UEFI in this tablet, given it's x86 and Windows. An Onda Win10/Android tablet I have has BIOS/UEFI. But I was thinking the whole Windows/Android pre-configured multi-partition image would have been blasted on to the device during manufacture. There are tools to for resizing and manipulating partitions on a PC, but Windows can't read or write the EXT4 Android partition on this tablet.

    Bliss-x86 might be possible, but would it have the specific drivers that it would require for the Chuwi tablet, like touch-screen, WiFi, orientation sensor, etc. Bliss-x86 is usually installed and run on PCs?

    Thank you for this, it sounds at least a little promising.
    How do I learn to use bliss_x86 to replace everything on my internal HD with an Android installation?

    Well, already the title says "...for PC".

    I am surprised that one cannot simply wipe all partitions on the internal storage and then install the Android version there, which had been installed in one of the partitions, as the drivers for that Android must be on the tablet already...?

    I very much suspect it's a flashed ROM image that Chuwi built for this tablet, and that would include the user and system partitions already defined. And to resize I think it would have to be done by modifying the original ROM image file, and then reflashing.

    Unlike Windows or Ubuntu which are desktop OSs, there are no partition manager type tools for Android, like Gparted etc.

    You are not leaving me any illusions... :saddroid:

    All I can do is hope that I can manage to return this thing. It was pretty stupid of m,e, to buy this without checking out a few things beforehand....
    I still have an Asus 7" from a few years ago, and it took Kingroot about ten minutes to get the SU working. I believed that is how it works, thats what is normal

    Still... Thank You

    PS: Where can I find out if the Samsung Galaxy Tab A T580N is easily rootable? Where can I findout which 10" tablet is easily rootable?

    XDA forums would be your best shot, the more popular the device the more support it will have. Just note down a few tablets your in the market for and check XDA to see if there is any root/mod support for it.
