Which of the GPD Windows images is the right one for my GPD Win 2?
« on: September 04, 2020, 01:30:48 am »
Hi. Got a GPD Win 2 m3-8100Y and I wanna replace the SSD so I would have to reinstall Windows.

Which firmwares from https://www.gpd.hk/gpdwin2firmware are right for my device:

"WIN2_1909_X64_HOME_20191218-user-en" or the "GPD WIN 2 Firmware of Windows OS (8100Y)" ?

Probably none. Just download the Windows 10 image from Microsoft and make a bootable USB stick.

It's been a long time that I reinstalled my GPD Win 2 but I don't you need drivers that aren't already available with the Windows 10 image. Except for the Intel drivers that can be updated if you want to do that.

I'm still using the Windows 10 version that came with my GPD Win 2 but with the Dutch language. Never upgraded it and probably never will. Everything that I want to run on it works and I want to keep it that way.  ;D

After using my GPD Win 2 and installing stuff on it for a few days now, I'm also finding that the Windows version that came with it works fine for all my use cases so far. Thanks for your guidance.
