    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10

    1. 100MB EFI
    2. Windows C: - Windows 8.1 with bing - 9.30GB with 3.20GB free
    3. Recovery - 5.15GB used
    You have a 16GB mSSD in that tablet.. Your tablet is using Wimboot...
    You CAN NOT remove the Recovery Partition..
    You also CAN NOT just UPGRADE to Windows 10...
    You also have Windows 8.1 BING which you CAN NOT find an ISO for...

    You need to create a recovery drive via control panel - this is a MUST - also try a less expensive USB stick (El Cheapo)

    You would then have to prepare for Windows 10 by adding drivers to the install.wim and by adding drivers to the winRE.wim

    Then you need to create a genuineTicket.xml from the host and add to Windows 10

    Then the Install.wim gets configured as a wimboot image and then the images are applied to the current partitions...

    Using the Reset feature of the Recovery Drive..

    NOT something the average user is accustom to doing.. So Windows 10 on your tablet may not be a good idea..

    Sorry to be the one to tell you..

    The 16GB drive is to small to just wipe and then install Windows 10..

    Windows 8.1 with Bing

    Ok, I guess I have to stick to windows 8.1 then The idiots of ODYS claims that there should be no issue upgrading to windows 10 because several of their customers have done so - I guess they just left out that those customers had 32GB tablets, not the 16GB I were asking about

    The stupid part is that durring initial setup you are actually asked if you want to upgrade to windows 10, which of course is not posssible due to lack of free space.
