    bitlocker n fast boot disabled, Still can't boot to safe mode, and I also can't disable driver signature, the hell is wrong with this thing?:confused:

    Maybe I'm missing some updates, does anybody know any specific update that will help me on this issue? & I wonder why updating windows slows down the system, it's quite a mystery to me:rolleyes:

    Here is one method.
    to disable Driver Signing:

    1) Win+X
    2) Choose Administer Command Prompt
    Type the following commands
    3) C:\bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECK
    4) C:\bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON
    5) Check your results.
    C:\bcdedit
    It should read "Disable Integrity check" & "Test Signing on"


    Edit: Sorry mispelled INTEGRITY
    It is fixed

    I tried your method & that actually worked!:thumbsup:, oh, btw the command can be typed on any directory, and for that, I was able to install the fastboot drivers for my android phone. :vbbiggrin:

    I've also found an alternate way on how to boot to safe mode using the System Configuration:vboops:

    but...it seems the system lost it's..STARTUP SETTINGS, it just won't boot it anymore,..OMG,.what have I just done?:vbeek:

    Check over on the Dell Venue 8 Pro forum.
    It has been a while, but someone there was
    able to do this. The Dell and the Asus are very similar.

    Have you tried an emulator?

    I tried almost I guess, starting from bluestacks, genymotion, etc,. they're all too buggy, I'm waiting for consoleos to release they're amazing project, I guess

    <<WARNING>> Details are short, but another member has bricked his tablet after following through with mods this link explains. Careful!

    Looking forward to hearing others' experience with this.

    I tried to use the tip above to regain access to a screen off, processor running condition but without success. I was able to get the 'turn off display after ___minutes' option to show under advanced power settings, but its value is tied directly to the sleep timer. So if you set the sleep timer to 1 hour, then enter advanced settings and set 'turn off display' to 1 minute, the sleep timer will have been changed to 1 minute.

    I'm trying to create a mode the tablet can be used in to run with screen off, touchscreen disabled and unneeded radios off so that it can be used as an mp3 player and GPS device while in my pocket.

    Here's my cheap trick to avoid ghost dots in Windows Journal:

    1) Open Device Manager
    2) Expand "Human Interface Devices"
    3) Right click "HID-compliant touch screen" -> Disable
    3.5) DON'T CLOSE DEVICE MANAGER!
    4) Open Windows Journal
    5) Right click again "HID-compliant touch screen" -> Enable
    6) Close Device Manager
    7) Start working.

    Now you have your touch sensor back, but Windows Journal won't detect it as a pencil. You can even click on Windows Journal buttons with your fingers, no problem.

    Your palm might cause some page scrolling until your pen is close enough, but I prefer that any time before ghost dots.
