    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    THIS IS THE ANSWER!!! As suggested by another forum user, I updated from A11 to A14 and it sees the EMMC as a FIXED DISK and Windows has been installed!!!! OMG took me like 3 weeks when that should have been the first thing I tried! Wonder how people running A11 back in the days were able to...

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    Mine is a 64gb DV8P. I got it used from someone who was upgrading to Windows 10, then crashed in the middle of it. I got it hoping it was easy to wipe and install clean Windows but it has been a nightmare. If you have the DV8P, can you boot into Windows Setup and run diskpart and detail disk on...

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    Only in DISKPART, Windows Setup doesn't see it as storage. Which is why I'm asking whether Windows can be installed on a "removable drive" which it thinks the EMMC is.

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    Windows Setup *SHOULD* create the disk partitions, but if you refer to Post #1, first image, it DOESN'T see the storage. Even after injecting drivers using NTLite. Even after downloading an ISO with Injected Drivers from a forum poster because I thought I injected it incorrectly. Even when I...

    Command Prompt using Windows Setup Media, and I've used the WinPE bootable disk as well. I thought you wanted me to re-created the partitions in Post #9?

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    Here's what I discovered, I can create the first partition just fine. Whether it's EFI or Primary, MSR. The error occurs when I try to create the second partition. Doesn't matter which type of partition, it'll always display the error: The operation is not supported on a non-empty removable disk.

    I've also used Rufus to format the USB to GPT EFI FAT32, selected the Windows 8.1 32bit ISO and booted from that. I'll try it again following your instructions.

    With All due respect, I've already tried this like 20 times. I've already did the convert gpt. It won't work on a removable media. Please see the error.

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    Yes, the 14GB is my USB Flashdrive where I booted Window Installation CD. The disk 0 is the 64gb EMMC. The 260mb partition is when I recreated a EFI partition by doing: diskpart select disk 0 clean create partition efi size=260 format quick fs=fat32 label="System" I STILL think the problem...

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    Going back to my post #2, I think it's because of the fact that Win Setup sees the EMMC as a "SD Card" and a "Removable Media", then it won't allow you to install Win OS on it.

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    As you can see in the images, the EMMC disk is considered "Removable Media", which probably is why Windows Setup won't show as disk drive in the first image. So I think the solution has to be something to do with making the Volumes appear as fixed disks.

    Solved Help me restore my Venue 8 5830 with no partitions!

    The tablet currently doesn't have any partitions, because I deleted it with diskpart. Not sure if I should have done that, but before I deleted them, When I tried using the Win8.1 as well as Win10 Install Images for reinstall, neither of them detected storage when it got to the "(I)nstall"...
