Hello, friends!

Eny experience? Mu Tablet PS has UEFI system.

This is my tabletPC main configuration:

UEFI (BIOS) version: CHUWI.W86JFBNR01 12/18/2014
CPU - Intel Bay Trail z3735F 1.8 Ghz, 4 cores, 64 bit

Rom-32Gb eMMC flash
10 points Toutch screen 1280-800
Intel HD Graphics integrated graphic card

bluetooth 4.0

Tell me.. support Porteus my TabletPC WIFI adapter and video card, and toutch screen? If no support toutch screen - do ypu cann add support of toutch screens on your linux destr?

I need support wifi adapter too! I am downloading now 64bit UEFI build of Porteus 3.1 Desktop witn no GUI (console version, no development)
If you cann add toutchscreen, video adapter and WIFI adapter support to distribution - will be the best linux for this PC!!

Try starting Porteus, and then give us reports if something is not working. To guess what kind of exotic hardware would work out of the box, or not, is quite impossible for us, unless one of us has the very same hardware at hand... *shrug*
