How can i install Windows OS on TC HP t5745 with Hp Thinpro

Hello,

 

I want to know how to install Win XPe or WES OS on a TC HP t5745(Thin Pro). I have tried to install the newest BIOS version but appears an error. I would like to know if somebody has a manual or instructions about how to install this OS on a Linux Thin Client.

 

Thank very much.

 

Best Regards,

 

David Cuello

Hi David

 

that is not possible. You need a t5740 or t5740e (with OEM license) for a windows installation.....

I have licenses of Windows Embedded Standard 7. I tried to install it on the HP t5745 and the installawion freezes after the "Starting Windows" appears. Is there a reason? Why can't Windows be installed on the t5745?

If you have a full version of that OS.There shouldn't be a technical limitation, other than else the flash disc size, to install WIn7 or Embedded

As this unit doesn't have a MS OEM license, I assume this (OEM) will no work,.

As this unit doesn't carry a OEM license with, you will be not able to install image from the HP page.

If you're installing WES 7 Sp1 it will freeze on a t574x if the thin client has a BIOS older than 1.04.

 

Flash your t5745, t5740, t5740e's to BIOS 1.04.

 

This BIOS update also unlocks the mini PCIe slot so more than just the stock WiFi card can be added.
