Yo tengo instalado windows 10 en mi HP ELITEPAD 900 g1
debes formatear tu USB or HDD como EFI

Seems to work with Xubuntu and an UEFI boot from YUMI 1.0016

You need to press the up volume key at startup to select a boot device.

The BIOS only allows Windows 8 based OS (or 8.1) to run on it plus Ubuntu and other Linux OS are not vary UEFI compatible as windows is.

This thing isn't even capable of running win10. The graphics card lacks a win10 driver out of the box.

I have one of these - won it as a prize in a competition.

I have tried to boot debian live off a USB pen drive, and it won't even start that. The unit lacks a keyboard and there's no on-screen keyboard in the bios.
Only one USB port via an adapter, so I require a USB hub to connect a keyboard and pen drive at the same time. More news to come.

Part 2 - The tablet won't boot any CD or pen drive I attach.

I've tried a USB samsung drive, and a generic SATA/USB adapter with a SATA CDROM drive.

Also I've tried 5 different USB pen drives with different distros on it. Nothing boots.

I've mashed keys on a USB keyboard while the tablet boots, but the UEFI thing seems to ignore it, perhaps the USB hub is the cause.

Interestingly the default win8 install has 6 partitions on the internal storage, so if you do get it to boot be careful about wiping the wrong storage
