    Can't boot my Tablet. Windows Boot Manager boot failed.


    Hi, I recently discovered this awesome forum, I'm wondering if someone can help me with this issue. I'm really desperate ...

    My tablet's model is Linx 1010 (Intel Atom Z3735F 1.33Ghz, 2GB RAM) with Microsoft Windows 10 32 bits pre-installed on it. I have been using it for more than two years. But suddenly, last week I tried to boot the tablet as usual, and I faced with this error on it:

    Windows Boot Manager boot failed.

    And finally, upon pressing OK, my tablet's UEFI shows up:

    Ok, this is all what I have tried:

    1) I have made a USB stick with Rufus softwre (selecting FAT 32 file system, GPT partition for UEFI boot) and Windows 10 PRO 32 bits on it.
    No success. USB is recognized, in fact the system tries to boot from it, but it fails:

    USB is recognized on Boot Manager UEFI option menu:

    2) Manually boot from Boot Manager UEFI Option Menu
    No success. Same error message described on 1)

    3) I installed another 32-bit image (in case the one of Win10 was corrupted) in ANOTHER USB stick
    For instance, I installed this image on the new USB How to Reset Linx 7 / 8 / 10 Tablet Password with A Bootable USB Drive | Password Recovery
    No success. Exactly the same messages from 1)

    4) Pushed Power button and Vol+ simultaneosly, for 10-15 seconds
    UEFI shows up (without the errors on 1), but anything changed. No success. Same error messages when I try to boot any OS from Boot Manager option menu.

    5) "Boot from file" option on UEFI Menu
    On UEFI menu, selecting Boot From File -> Selecting \EFI\Boot\bootia32.efi from the USB. No success. Same messages reported on 1)

    6) Disable Secure Boot
    On UEFI menu, selecting "Secure Boot Option", disabling Secure Boot didn't change anything. No success. Same messages reported on 1) upon booting.

    Well, as you see I'm quite frustrated with this issue.

    I'm aware is something damaged, even the "internal" EFI shell can't boot! But I cannot figure out how to reset the UEFI settings or the EFI partition or whatever it is that can't let my tablet boot ...

    Has someone any good idea? Would be very grateful. Thank you very much.

    gramenauer,

    Welcome to Ten Forums!

    Assuming the Linx tablet does not support 32-bit legacy BIOS mode, and that the Windows version you are trying to install matches the tablet's architecture (64-bit or 32-bit).

    As far as I know, to repair the EFI Bootloader in Windows 10 normally you need to get the tablet to boot from the USB recovery media and get to the Advanced Options screen to open the command prompt.

    However, have seen where Easy Recovery Essentials, (by Neosmart) has helped in some cases:
    Fix UEFI Boot: Fix for Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10

    If no luck with ERE, is there any possibility of contacting Linx for some guidance?
    Sometimes these support crews have to be called (if phone number is available) in order to get any kind of help.

    Thank you for your answer cottonball. I will definitely give a try on Easy Recovery Essentials.

    Regardind the possibility of contacting Linx for some guidance, I already dit it by email without any kind of answer. I will try to call them, thank you for the advice.

    I will post the results on ERE.

    I made an USB stick with the Easy Recovery Essential for Win10 image, using their tool Easy USB Creator, but nothing changed. Same messages I reported on 1)

    My tablet is not able to boot absolutely any USB.

    Linx support is limited as my tablet is more than 2 year old. The support asks me to take the tablet to the official technical service, so probably I would have to pay lots of money in ordre to repair it ... but I still refuse to think there is nothing to do with this issue ....

    What if you used a portable CD/DVD player, or a portable hard drive, and use ERE?

    Another thought that comes to mind is the use some type of Linux Live CD...however, don't know if that is even feasible with a tablet. You do not want to kill it totally.

    There is also the Kyhi Bootable Rescue Disk
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
    It may allow you access to the non-working system, etc.

    Maybe someone else will stop by and suggest what to do.

    My thought is that the eMMC memory (the "SSD" in the device) has gone bad and it's probably time to start shopping for another tablet.

    But, in order for a USB flash drive to be bootable on this device make sure that it is formatted as FAT32 and whatever image you copy to the flash drive is 32-bit and UEFI bootable. I recommed Kyhi's recovery tools:

    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk

    x86 is 32-bit.

    To make a USB flash drive bootable, I recommend this procedure:
    Create a Bootable USB Flash Drive

    At step 9, make sure to use FAT2 file system:
    9. To format the partition, type format fs=fat32 quick, and then click ENTER.

    For step 12 you will mount whatever ISO file you are using, such as Kyhi's Recovery Tools, and then copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the USB flash drive.

    On my Nextbook tablet, under the SCU UEFI firmware menu, on the first tab the 2GB of RAM shows up, but there is no information about the eMMC memory :-(. eMMC memory shows up as a fixed disk in System Information in Windows.

    Thank you both. I will give a try and will post results.

    Regarding

    My thought is that the eMMC memory (the "SSD" in the device) has gone bad and it's probably time to start shopping for another tablet.
    I have thought on that, but the question is: Is the SSD accessed when I boot from a USB?

    Is there any "essential" information on SSD that is always used on boot time, regardless the device you are trying to boot?

    UEFI is not in the SSD itself? UEFI is OK, at least is shown.

    Sorry for so many questions , many days thinking on it.

    Ok, I have just tried to make a bootable USB following your guides (diskpart and format=fat32) and then copyying Kyhi's recovery tools ISO into USB root. But .... nothing changed... same messages:

    USB is detected by UEFI but does not boot at all. Really strange. If SSD was damaged, USB would boot anyway .. isn't it?

    It could be the RAM is bad. A USB would have to boot into RAM. The only other thing I can suggest, but I don't think it would work, would be to try a different USB flash drive - USB 2.0 tend to make better boot devices than USB 3.0. I do really think you have a hardware failure, though. The same would be true for the built in EFI boot file, it would have to boot from EPROM into RAM.
