    How ro erase Linux of the embedded storage on a DE3815TYKHE

    I dunno what to tell you except to try using a different wired keyboard and see if that will work to get to the boot option, You can format that embedded 4gb drive after you get Windows installed. You need 32 gb to install Windows 10, So I would not worry about that little 4gb drive yet with the...

    Are you using a wireless keyboard? If so, try a wired keyboard Windows 10 isn't going to fit on that embedded 4gb hard drive but according to intel you should be able to use a 2.5" hard drive or a half size M.2 drive in there

    older bios can get buggy, I mean if you do a lot of updates on it, the writes on the chip can get corrupted over a length of time/updates. You can get new cmos chips. I could be out in left feild on this, but from my weak understanding, cmos chips memory is very similar to the type of memory...

    Although Starlink is not the same as what Hughes satellite is, it will still have some of the same issues. Like weather conditions. You yourself did state this is in beta so the jury is still out on exactly how well this system is going to work.
