Windows 10 USB3_DRIVER error
#1
I have installed Windows 10 on a Samsung T1 portable ssd using WinToUsb.  When I boot from the usb on certain computers I get a blue screen of death with the code BUGCODE_USB3_DRIVER.  Any ideas why?  On the same computers it boots fine (albeit slowly) on usb 2.  But on other computers it boots correctly on usb 3.0.

I have tried uefi and bios booting, and different versions of Windows 10, but no luck.  All the computers, both working and not, are Dell branded.  Drivers are up to date.  I've even tried making my Windows To Go install using a rival programme (Aomei), but the same error persists on the same machines.

So it seems the problem is hardware-based because it consistently works on some machines and consistently fails on others, but I would really like to know a solution to the problem.  Having a portable OS is not that useful when it only works on certain machines.

This is normal, some computer's BIOS have problems with booting USB drives from a USB 3.0 port, you need to boot from a USB 2.0 port on these computers. I'm sorry, there is no solution to the problem, only the hardware manufacturer can solve this problem.

I'm sorry, this problem may be hardware-related or may be a bug in Windows, we don't have a solution.
