Hi everyone,
                  I am going to show you how to flash in Mi pad 2 windows edition.

First you need an updated BIOS version- in order to use the win 10, we need to update the corresponding version of BIOS.

The files are large, Windows file is of 6 GB, whereas Android is of 535 MB.



Prequisites:
  • Mi flash tool
  • Mi pad 2 64GB only(No 16GB)
  • A little Brain
Downloads :
Android flashing package :Here
Platform Tools : Here
Windows Flash Pack : Here

Flashing Android and the needed BIOS version

Flashing steps:
  • Download the android package and Platform tools and extract both of them.
  • Open Platform tools and press SHIFT+RIGHT CLICK at the same time and Select Open Command Prompt Here.

3.Drag the flash_all.bat to the Command prompt and it will show you a line " waiting for device".  Now enter fastboot mode in your Mi pad 2 Win Edition manually, connect your Mi pad 2 with it's data cord to the PC,  and wait for it to flash.

4. After the Completion of flashing, Type " fastboot reboot" and Press enter to restart your pad . You can now disconnect from the PC.


Installing the windows 10

Things required :

A Type C OTG Cable

A USB pendrive with at least 8GB storage and of FAT32 format.

Steps to flashing:

1.The new BIOS settings can be started from the USB pendrive, and It must be detected by the Pad.

2.Download the Above given Win 10 pack. Extract, copy and extract all the files to the root directory of USB.

3.Turn off Xiaomi Mi Pad 2, connected to U disk and devices via OTG line, if the BIOS was properly installed it will start and be self-installed. The following pictures appears, which means it is being installed.


4.After the Installation is complete, the Pad shuts down Automatically and Press the power button to start it.



Flash Back to MIUI from Windows

1. Entering the DNX mode:

In a switched off state, press the power Button to start the Pad.  When the Mi logo appears, Press both the Volume Up+Volume Down Button simultaneously for about 15 Seconds. To confirm that you are in DNX mode there will be a line at the top written as "DNX Fastboot Mode..."

2. For Flashing the Fastboot file:

Open Command prompt in platform tools. Navigate to the Extracted path of Android package and drag the Loader.efi file to the CMD and press enter.

3.The device will enter the Fastboot interface mode.



Flash back to the Android

Follow Step #3 of the first flashing Instructions at the top of this tutorial. The flash_all.bat will be completed.  When completed, manually type the command "fastboot reboot" to restart the device. Disconnect from the PC.

Flash Back to MIUI system

Download the MIUI Developer Edition/ stable version.  Flash the ROM, using Fastboot method.


*Disclamer : I do not hold any reponsibility if you brick your device, Please read all steps carefully and ensure you downloaded the correct file. You can flash the 64GB  MIUI version of Mi Pad 2 at your own risk and dont Blame me.

does this mean we could have windows on an android version or android on the windows version?

Yes, the tutorial can be used to Either way.

To flash from MIUI to windows follow the tutorial.  The first set of instrucions flashes you from MIUI to android and includes the needed BIOS package for windows. (Without this step, Flashing windows will not work).

The second set of instructions actually installs Windows, from a USB stick- As long as the BIOS in the first step installed correctly.

And the last set of instructions shows you how to go back to MIUI.  To go back to MIUI, you first have to go back to Android.  THEN install a MIUI rom. It can also be used by a Windows version of the MIPAD2 to convert to Android/then MIUI.
If you can't be a good example, you'll serve as a terrible warning!...

Yep I understand my problem. I was booting to Android first. This time, after the Native flash, I plugged the USB stick and Keyboard on it.

I can now boot on my USB stick but I have an error page. And they say I need to press Windows key to continue. Sadly it doesn't work. I'll try another keyboard maybe a compatibility issue? I can access to the BIOS by pressing F2 at the boot.
Do you all have the same error? Or maybe my USB stick isn't working well?

Hey,

I finally found my problem. I needed to create a MBR Partition on my USB Stick to work.
I think you can add it to tutorial.

Thanks again it works like a charm and now I can switch OS when I want. We just need to find how to install others OS and/or dual boot :)

Thanks for the guide.

I tried it. I successfully flash the Android image on it by using the flash-all.bat from the Native-release.
But I can't boot from the USB stick after.

I just need to plug the USB stick on the OTG Cable to boot from it?


I have a MiPad2 64Gb (originally on W10 but now on MIUI)

If you still can't flash windows in DNX mode, reflash the android and BIOS files again. The usb stick should self start when the BIOS have been properly installed.  NOT self starting can be a sign of something not installing correctly during the BIOS update.
If you can't be a good example, you'll serve as a terrible warning!...
