Yoga 2 Pro Install Windows 8 on a Android 4.4 Version

Hello Community!

 

Ich got a Yoga 2 Pro with Android 4.4. It was a Chrismas present. For my work I prefer a Windows Version for all the application.

 

It is possible to install myself a Windows 8 RT Version on the tablet? I saw a few US- Version of the Yoga 2 so I think the technical side must be fulfilled. Unfortunately there is no USB Port on the Tablet so I must installed directly on a SD Card.

 

Thank you for you suggestions.

 

Kind regards

 

Rob

It looks like that's actually possible:

... but in some cases may require flashing additional software first:

I'm not brave enough to try it myself.

 

By the way, Yoga 2 Pro does have an USB port, one just needs an additional micro USB OTG cable to convert it to 'normal' USB port.
