Apollolake/GeminiLake Devices

Apollolake/GeminiLake devices fall into the same category as Skylake/Kabylake:


they have also UEFI firmware and are capable of running Windows, but most devices lack drivers for audio.

coolstar’s touchpad/touchscreen drivers should work once all other system drivers are installed.

Be sure to run Windows update and Snappy Driver Installer Origin to ensure all required standard drivers are installed.

To get started:

  • Put your device into Developer Mode
  • Disable the hardware firmware write protect, method varies by device
  • Flash the UEFI Firmware
  • Create the Windows install media properly — ISO must be written to support GPT/UEFI booting using MS Tool, Rufus, or Ventoy.
  • Reboot / boot Windows USB installer
  • Delete all partitions on internal storage; install Windows into unallocated space
  • Run Windows update
  • Install drivers linked above in order listed


How To Install Windows 10 on Chromebook 2022

When installing Windows to your Chromebook’s internal storage,  it is also mandatory that you also delete all existing partitions,

and install Windows into the resulting unallocated space.

The Windows installer will set up and format partitions as needed.

In order to get the most up-to-date custom firmware,  it is mandatory to use MrChromebox’s Firmware Utility Script,


simply choose the ‘Install/Update Full ROM firmware’ option.

Threads asking why other scripts don’t work /give errors will be locked, possibly with a snippy notice.
