    Have you checked with the OEM to see if they have some type of install media you can purchase?

    I looked at your link to the Compact OS and it seems you need a second computer to create the flash drive.

    And all Recovery and EFI system partitions normally do not have a drive letter. If the ones on the other install do, something has altered that configuration.
    The OEM say that there is nothing that they can do. only send the tablet to them. as there is no guaranty already. it will cust me money.
    and yes, is needed another "machine" to make that "compact Os" in a pen boot. i made it in my desktop.

    You might be correct about the manufacturer having a minimized Windows 10 to fit onto the 16 GB eMMC memory.
    I believe in that also, but support is crap... and there is nothing on line of them...

    Windows 10 will easily fit on a 16 GB mmc tablet as a clean install but upgrading is virtually impossible as it needs to create a windows.old folder.

    The bigger hassle is that tablets often use special drivers not in the standard iso.

    So if you did not export drivers before you upgraded to 10, you could run into problems if you cannot get drivers from tablet vendor.

    I would reinstall original OS assuming you made a recovery drive (regrettably not all users do this), then export the drivers, then clean install and then you can sort out missing drivers.
    that was my 2 error, didind badk up nothing. erase all the partitions and did a clean install of the pen boot.
    another thouth of mine..... I believe there is something on the bios blocking the install or something like that... if i post some pics of the bios can ou say if there is something in "the wrong" place

    The system requirement for an x64 version of Windows 10, which all UEFI installs are, requires 20 GB. You seem to be saying that install will fit on a 16 GB SSD with only 13 GB available.

    I have a hard time believing it will fit unless some house cleaning is done prior to creating the install media. I could be wrong, since compressing files install may reduce the space needed by maybe 40% or so, but it sounds like the OP is having a problem getting that to work, unless there is something you know which we do not.

    1. Is Windows setup asking you which version you want to install? Is it asking you for a product key, asking you which version (Home or Pro), or is it just proceeding on without asking for either a product key or version? If it is just proceeding without asking, that is good in that you are trying to install the same matching version that the product key in UEFI is good for.

    2. Are you trying to install 64-bit Windows or 32-bit Windows? You should be using 32-bit Windows.

    1) I said a clean install - you have to delete all partitions. Even for a clean install, it will create a windows.old unless you wipe all drives. Otherwise an install on a 16GB tablet is virtually impossible.

    2) Tablets usually use 32bit but not exclusively. Need to check. It will not install if you select wrong version.

    3) You put installer on a large enough flash drive (recommend 16 GB - 8 GB drive is too small). This way, if there is not enough temporary space on tablet, it uses the flash drive for temporary space. Also best to create flash drive using media creation tool and only select 32bit or 64bit as appropriate. However if not sure, create dual 32/64bit usb and try 32bit first, and 64 bit if 32bit des not install.

    4) The base install is around 9 GB for a 32bit version. 64bit version is around 11 GB. The 20 GB requirement is because of the temporary space requirement but if you use a 16 GB flash drive, this is no longer the case.

    5) I have an old Linx 16 GB tablet, and clean installing works fine, and done it several times.

    6) Once it is installed, make an image backup using Macrium Reflect Free to make reinstalls easier.

    yes. i made all the times a clean install.... erase all the partitions on windows setup, and then install.
    but im using a 8gb pen drive all the time.. its the largest i have... maybe i buy a new one.
    on the bios? did you see something that may be blocking the install? maybe the OEM changed something.

    It will not install of wrong bit type. Many tablets use a 32bit bootloader even if cpu is 64bit.
