Introduzione

This guide will assume you are familiar with installing Windows on previous devices. Not all features may work perfectly in this installation. You will *not* have to flash the BIOS to achieve a Windows installation, but you will have to flash it if you want all the devices to work properly.

Important Note: As of mid-2019, there is no viable method for getting the Pixel’s trackpad working in Windows 10. This is due to proprietary firmware used in the trackpad bundle, the code for which is not available from the manufacturer. If you’re okay using this with a USB mouse, or trying your luck with Bluetooth, carry on!

    • Note that drivers may be buggy. You might have to reinstall ChromeOS by using recovery in order to flash/re-flash the BIOS.

    • This is risky business, so only flash it if your drivers don't work out of the box and you have the technical know-how to fix it.

Hello, have you successfully gotten the trackpad to work? Last time I heard Coolstar claimed that this wouldn't be possible.

Yup, the track-pad works (mostly) how it supposed to. I just can't post the driver since Mr. Chromebox noted that it's closed source; therefore I've decided to go solo with my work. It's definitely not impossible, just hard to figure out how to use the Intel I2C interface which drives the touchpad. I'd recommend starting your research on the official Intel datasheet for the specification and take a look at the Linux community drivers written in C for inspiration. You should check the Reddit page in case Coolstar or Mr. Chromebox has found a way to circumvent the legality issues or issued a fix of their own.

Hey did you end up doing this therealpurplesound? I want to do this as well but the trackpad, touchscreen, audio and other basic features that I haven't got a solid answer on stop me.

Does it rotate when you do it?

Technopal V2.0 -

Hi, in a comment above you mention that the touchpad / trackpad mostly works as it's supposed to , but for reasons you cannot link it, can you elaborate on this? Is there a public solution as I am a bit confused and wish to gather more information before going forward.

I just wish to understand if the Pixel 2013 will work (keyboard, touchpad, touchscreen, etc) under Windows 10 as a normal functioning laptop.

Thank you.
