    I have a Dell Venue 8 Tablet without the standard USB ports so have to use an OTG/On The Go adapter to go from the power port to standard USB devices. I got my OTG from Dell when I got the Tablet.

    It may or may not work because some of the Micro-USB ports are for power only and don't have the connection required for data. I didn't research the Asus tablet fully enough to know if it has a Micro-USB port that will function for data as well as a full size USB port. I just assumed there was only 1 USB port available for data.

    Thanks for options NavyLCDR. I think my best option is buying a USB hub. None of my keyboards have a USB port and even though setting up the OS would probably be faster and maybe more reliable with in on the HD, I'll still need the hub just to copy it over to the SSD on the tablet. At least it sounds like there are still options and I appreciate that. Next stop is BestBuy that has them in stock!

    The VivoTab Smart will work fine with a USB On The Go adapter. We ran a Micro-USB to USB 2.0 OTG adapter (from Amazon) into a powered USB Hub, so that we could easily recharge the tablet as well as running USB items that require power from the PC.

    Thanks everyone for thoughts & ideas. Yes a powered USB Hub would be nice. I was able to get Windows 10 installed using the USB hub (keyboard, mouse & 8GB Flash drive) via a Micro-USB to USB cable. Was able to squeeze the Win10 OS onto the flash drive and had to be careful once I started the install process to take the flash drive out during restarts so it wouldnít go back into Kyhi's recovery drive Ö then putting it back in so it could get any necessary OS files. Windows 10 booted up perfectly but I still had no Touch Screen, no Wireless Network, no Bluetooth and no support for the Micro-SD slot. I downloaded all the available drivers from the ASUS website (not much) and installed them and rebooted and things are looking good. Touch screen works and Micro-SD slot is working. Haven't got my network up yet, which is where Iím at right now and then I'll check on the Bluetooth.

    Thanks so much everyone ... I couldn't have resurrected this tablet without you. If all this works out I'll try to post the concise steps that ended up working, just in case someone else has to go through this on a ASUS VivoTab Smart or something similar.

    Update at 5:48pm 11/23/16: Everything is up and running except for a few programs I need to reload. Yeah!

    Delighted things are working for you! You persevered.

    That would be great. We all benefit from detailed explanations.
