    That's a great suggestion cottonball. There's only one mini USB port on this tablet and that's where I have the bootable USB drive installed.
    I don't know it it will work and I don't have a USB hub so I'll try to pick one up tomorrow so I can have both connected ... worth a try. On your other point ... no I can't click or tap on the "Next" button. I mean I can tap on it but there's no effect. Appreciate your thoughts/ideas.

    A USB keyboard might also work. There are also some keyboards with mini USB. It surprises me that there is not a regular USB2.0 port on the ASUS VivoTab Smart tablet.

    I tried a Dell USB keyboard initially but didn't have any luck. I tried the bootable USB again and when I got to the Windows Setup page again I unplugged the USB drive and installed a USB mouse and was able to click on "Next". Then I got a message that a driver was missing. I used the mouse to click on browse and saw my C: & D: drives intact with all their sub-directories. Since I don't know what driver was missing I wasn't able to continue but when I clicked to Exit the Setup it took me to a page where I could try to repair a start up problem. It's been working on that for about 45 min. so I'm still making progress and seeing my C & D drives makes me hopeful that I'll eventually get all back. There's nothing critical on the tablet that I would lose so if I have to do a complete re-install I'm OK with that.

    I would convert your Windows 10 USB flash drive to boot into Kyhi's recovery drive. See my quote in the middle of the OP:
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    Get yourself a micro-SD card, format it NTFS, copy the Windows 10 ISO file to it.

    Boot into Kyhi's recovery tools, remove the USB flash drive, connect the keyboard and/or mouse to the USB port. Mount the Windows 10 ISO file on the Micro-SD card, run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file. That's how I do clean installs on my Nextbook tablet.

    Ultimately the "Attempting Repair" that was working last night on my tablet failed.

    Thanks NavyLCDR for post ... I'm working on that and I have a micro-SD card I can use for this. Might take a little while as I've got some other things to take care of this morning.

    Getting closer I hope


    OK I converted my Windows 10 USB flash drive to boot into Kyhi's recovery drive by copying the boot.wim file from \sources in Kyhi's recovery drive to the \sources on my Windows 10 install USB flash drive (overwriting the old file).

    Iíve formatted a micro-SD card, for NTFS, and copied the Windows 10 ISO file (Win10_1607_English_x32.iso) onto it.

    Tomorrow (charging tablet right now), Iíll boot into Kyhi's recovery tools via my modified USB flash drive, remove the USB flash drive, connect a mouse to the USB port. Mount the Windows 10 ISO file on the Micro-SD card and then run setup.exe from the mounted ISO file.

    To be honest Iím basically just following steps and not totally understanding all of them. Before I got my micro-SD card ready, I was able to boot into Kyhiís recovery program, was able to removed the USB drive and get my mouse to work but really donít know what all those programs do. Iíll have to go back and start reading about theyíre capability. Iím sure it must be GOOD stuff, if I only knew how to use them.

    Yes, there is some good programs on there, but all you need to install Windows from there is just plain Windows File Explorer :-)

    You can swap between mouse and keyboard on your single USB port if you have to, or use a wireless mouse keyboard combination that has only one receiver, or use a keyboard with a touchpad built in.

    Things didn't go as expected


    Everything started out fine until I got to the step of mounting the Windows 10 ISO file on the Micro-SD card. The Micro-SD card is not showing up. I don't usually use a Micro-SD card but it worked fine a few months ago and it reads fine in my desktop computer so I'm not sure what my options are now. I've wiggled the card, ejected it and re-inserted it to see if the tablet will recognize it while I've got the tablet running with Kyhi's recovery drive desktop. Any suggestions?

    Kyhi's recovery tools probably does not have the drivers installed for the Micro-SD card slot. There is a way to add the Micro-SD slot drivers to Kyhi's recovery tools, but not sure how to do it. Now you have a couple options...

    You can use a USB hub so you can have the USB flash drive and a keyboard/mouse connected at the same time.
    You can use a keyboard with a USB port on the keyboard to plug the flash drive into.
    You can use the AEOMI partitioning program I Kyhi's recovery tools to create a 4.5-5 GB partition at the end of the tablet's "hard drive", format it NTFS, and copy the Windows 10 ISO file to it, and then mount it from there.

    Kyhi's recovery drive allows you to run the minimal WindowsPE without the flash drive being inserted allowing you to use a keyboard/mouse, but the object now is to get the Windows 10 ISO file or install files in a location we can access with the USB flash drive removed.
