ASUS T100 CHI Keyboard issue windows 10 (Solved)

This netbook/tablet comes with windows 8.1 32 bit , when it  upgrade to windows 10 official build 10240, the keyboard dock  doesn't get connected via Bluetooth, even downloading windows 10 drivers updates directly from Asus support page.

Here  is the solution I have found so far

In November Microsoft  released  a new build of windows 10 ( build 10586)
Upgrading the previous windows 10 build 10240 to this new version fix the issue,the update can be done via windows updates,ISO or clean install via USB, this new version let users to perform a clean install from windows 7/8/8.1/10 and then use the OEM key to activate it, there is no longer required to upgrade from windows.

the update can be downloaded via windows updates, not sure if its still available to download the ISO via media creation tool, but I have heard that there is no longer available using this method.

Hope this post can help someone who is dealing with this issue....
