Flash Sale Alert! You can now buy Chuwi HiBox Hero Android 5.1 + Window 10 Dual OS Mini PC from Gearbest for only $129.99 with free shipping world wide (regular price: $148.57). Hurry up, limited stock, only 79 pieces left!
The Aption/AMI BIOS of Chuwi HiBox Hero Mini PC is very poor in features and options, with many items disabled. There are only 4 tabs in setting, with only a few options each: Main, Security, Boot, Save & Exit. Here you’ll find the unboxing of this great device. Download from here Windows 10 drivers for Chuwi HiBox Hero Mini PC from here.
If you need it, you can download the original BIOS file from here or here. I also have made a BIOS back-up of Chuwi HiBox Hero Dual OS Mini PC. You can download it from here, here or here.
I advise everyone to make a copy of a working BIOS, if possible, before doing BIOS experiments. To do that you can simple use the provided Aptio AfuWin64 v.5.08.02 software. If you disabled USB in the BIOS, or if you did another mess in device BIOS, only overwriting NVRAM can reset BIOS settings. In this way, there is no need to open the case, to teardown the device to be able to reset the CMOS. All the actions are made from Windows environment, so your Mini PC has to be able to boot into Windows. All the following actions that are you will do next are entirely at your own risk.
