Windows 10: Clean install on a HP tablet Solved

    Clean install on a HP tablet

    Hi everyone. I have a HP elite pad which has been wiped CLEAN. I have a bootable USB version of W10. I have changed the boot order in the BIOS to boot from USB.
    My problem is that I can't get beyond the language selection page because the touch screen doesn't appear to work once I have left the BIOS. The last time I used windows was XP and I am converting 'myself' back from apple products so any help would be appreciated. I have a 'dongle' that fits in the multipin socket at the base of the tablet and this has a USB socket on the end of a short lead that I am filling with the W10 stick.
    Will I need a USB hub and a USB keyboard to continue?
    Am I wasting my time and effort?
    Thanks in advance.

    You could use a USB hub to attach multiple USB devices to the single USB port you have available. If you have an external keyboard and mouse you'll only need them until you get the touch screen (and on-screen keyboard, by extension) working. Hopefully, you can borrow these items without having to buy them, if you don't own them already.

    You need a usb hub to attach a keyboard and mouse, as well as installation drive. Your biggest issue is for tablets, the special touchscreen, rotation and camera drivers are often not in the standard MS iso.

    However, being HP, it is likely you can download them from HP.

    I always advise people with tablets to make a system image backup with Macrium Reflect Free BEFORE wiping tablet, so you are certain the special drivers are available to you by mounting system image as a drive if the MS iso etc. cannot find them.

    IF it's an Elitepad 900 then you're most likely, out of luck.

    That model came with Win8x preinstalled and HP has no Win10 drivers for it -- and they are no longer writing new Win10 drivers for their "older" model laptops, tablets, and desktops.

    OK, I stand corrected ... as HP DOES have Win10 drivers for that model -- see here:

    Good Luck

    Thanks everyone. It seems to work ok thanks to the chipset driver link above. I am very grateful.
