For those having Wifi issues after the update to Creators edition, please use the following steps to resolve the issue.
In the search box on the taskbar, type Device Manager, and then select Device Manager from the list of results.
In Device Manager, select Network adapters > the network adapter name.
Press and hold (or right-click) the network adapter, and then select Properties.
In Properties, select the Driver tab, select Roll Back Driver, then follow the steps.
After rolling back to the previous version of the driver, select the Start button > Power > Restart. After the restart your wifi should be working again.
Sorry, you indicate you are at device manager, but I guess you have not hit the tab to look at the driver and the driver version for devices.
So, I gave you several devices and driver versions that would be seen in device manager.
If you are already in device manager and and the data I gave you does not make sense, then you should probably be looking to just reload the whole operating system, rather than debug which devices/drivers need to be changed/updated.
Yes I have an X8, and it is running great on Windows 10 Pro, build 1903.
I could give you a path to fix your issues, but it would take finding and installing drivers for the devices you are seeing.
Unfortunately, when you reload the operating system, unless you block updates, this will probably happen to you again. Be sure to stop updates after you reload, and then back up your system between updates.
Wow so your keyboard is not paired... sounds like all your wireless is messed up.
So get an OTG cable and add a USB hub to it so you can run a usb keyboard and also have the usb memory stick?
You need a computer buddy it seems like. How much effort is it worth to you? Enough to understand drivers? If it was mine, clearly the shortest path is to repair the issues you have, since even a clean install will take longer in updates.
Is it worth all this effort?
Guess he gave up...
You know you came here for advice but basically took none of it. And here I am with one working perfectly and having the details to help you specifically, but you insisted on a different course and now you have the BSOD.
In fact mine is on the Insider program with an advanced copy of Windows, and of the 5 computers I have with an Atom chipset, this one is the least trouble.
Don't know what to say except tried to help you and you ignored advice. You claimed to be knowledgeable but I gave you some of the most basic information on drivers and you said "I don't know what to do with that information", even getting a USB keyboard seemed to be a big deal.
When I don't understand something, I listen to an expert, or at least someone that knows more than me. I tried and my help was basically rejected.
Last chance: are you in the USA? Can you ship by USPS cheap? One last offer to help, although this computer is only worth about $50 on the open market.
I was referring to the versions of the device drivers, which should have solved your issues, going through them one by one would have solved the issues.
When I tried to take you in that direction I got this:
"Sorry but I don't know what to do with that information. My virtual adapter isn't even showing now. Even if it did it would have the yellow triangle. I've attached shots of my device mgr and wifi fail. This is a protocol x8. I really don't know about GPIO or where to get them or what to do with them Basically I have no idea what you are telling me. Sorry"
So I was trying to tell you that there are other drivers that are necessary to even SEE the hardware, that was your issue, these other drivers work with the hardware to communicate to other devices, the GPIO and LPC and other controller drivers are the interface to things like WiFi.
Then you state: " I understand enough of what I'm doing messing with drivers. And in the prompt I just enter what's instructed."
Clearly you don't understand at all, understanding drivers is quite a bit more than just hitting enter or next.
But like I said, if you did not understand that there are other drivers involved (not just the wifi driver) then a clean install is best.
The fact you tried to load the operating system mainly because your wireless is not working, which means clearly your wireless bluetooth keyboard would also not work, and you did not get a USB keyboard with a touchpad/mouse emulator sounds like trouble brewing.
In any case, are you going to keep trying or are you giving up? I guess you did not completely understand my offer about low cost shipping? That was an offer to fix it for you... free...

By the way, my Protocol X8 is currently running Win 10 Professional version 1903 build 18362.10014. It's been one of the most compatible tablet computers in the inexpensive category I have had.
This is actually the Windows Insider slow ring, a step beyond the stock releases.
If anyone is having issues, I'll be happy to share the driver versions I am using.
It's running perfectly.
