Dual booting Android and Windows on Meegopad T01

The default (Windows only) BIOS that came with the Meegopad T01 has an annoying feature of continuously transmitting a backspace. This means my USB boot image of my 32-bit compilation of Intel's last Android on Intel Platforms doesn't load.  

So if you want to try booting Android from USB without flashing the firmware, making any other BIOS modifications or installing any software to the Meegopad T01 device, you'll need to download this image from https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B99O3A0dDe67WFpMZWkxUDRmWWs and uncompress it and then write it to an 8GB (or larger) USB using either using 'Win32 Disk Imager' on Windows or using 'dd' on Linux.

After powering on the device use F7 to get to the boot menu and select the UEFI USB option.  The USB contains an installed Android system which include 'Google Play Store' and 'su' and your files and data will remain available after a reboot.
