    Unfortunately I don't have the funding like I use to so I can't buy/build a test machine. However, I consider my v11p pretty low priority in my household use, and I have the recovery stick provided by Dell. Everything on the tablet is backed up in the cloud, so I could give it a try if I can find the time...

    Downloading the ISO now. It's been stuck on 99% for that past 15 minutes or so. Waiting it out.

    I was surprised how easy it was to download. No congestion and a fairly consistent speed.

    I have tried to install but without luck. If I boot from the USB pendrive, I cannot continue because I need a keyboard (And cannot boot using a USB hub).

    If I install from inside Windows 8.1, after a few minutes and a couple of reboots I get an error and the installer restore the previous version (8.1). Maybe it's related to my install (WIM install to save space)

    I'm able to install Win10 but can't get the network drivers to load. Reinstalling again - I may have installed outdated drivers.

    Glad you pointed that out. My V8P is set up for WIMBoot as well.

    I now have a V8P with all drivers installed. I installed the following drivers:
    Intel Atom Z3000 Series Driver
    5830_Drivers-for-OS-Deployment_Driver_PKVD4_WN_603.9600.2067.27988_A05.EXE
    Version 603.9600.2067.27988,A05
    10 Sep 2014​

    Dell Wireless 1538 WiFi/BT Driver
    5830_Network_Driver_N3CW0_WN_3.7.2.55_A03.EXE
    Version 3.7.2.55, A03
    26 Jun 2014​

    I did try to disable the Driver Signing in order to install the latest WiFi/Bluetooth drivers (dated 25 Sep 2014) but that didn't seem to help. I was finally able to install the previous version of the drivers. Whether or not disabling the signing allowed me to finally install the Wi-Fi drivers, I can't really tell.

    To install the WiFi/Bluetooth drivers
    1) Extract the drivers to the a directory
    2) Open Device Manager and manually update the two unknown devices by pointing to the extracted directory​

    I'll play around some more and will post my findings

    you might want to try loading the Intel series 3000 driver first. The network driver is just to fix network problem

    all dell venue 8 tablets need hub with keyboard and mouse to do clean install. Windows 8.1 or 10 doesn't have the capability to install with touch. One installed you have to install the Intel driver and then touch will work !
