Dell venue pro 8 UEFI boot issues

Hi there,

I tried to clean install my Venue Pro 8 3845, I cleaned the internal HD with the Diskpart tool from the command prompt (I bootet from recovery), after that i restarted and wanted to boot from a USB stick with windows 10 64 Bit on it, the stick is bootable (I did another tablet before). But it seems the venue doesn't bother what I do or set in the uefi, It always says "internal hard disk drive not found". I selected several .efi files to boot from the stick in the settings, nothing worked. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Best regards

Did you get the Windows 10 usb key from Dell?  If not, you may want to contact dell support by phone to obtain on for your tablet.

You have to use Windows 10 32-bit on the Dell Venue Pro 8.
