Wifi Driver Fail. Code 10

by HandK » October 11th, 2018, 11:43 pm

With a new tablet Bought 3 days ago, it was working but for (retrospectively stupid) reasons I ran a Windows Reset, after which the wifi doesn’t work with a driver error Code 10.

Things I have tried:

I have (re)-reset the tablet

I have downloaded the driver pack (with separate Wifi install).
The separate wifi auto install fails with a file not deleted. Manual install gives a “not signed” warning, but when complete still gives a Code 10 error.

I went to the Microsoft catalogue library and went through a selection of the correct drivers one gave a “we know that fails” error, the older ones are unrecognized as correct driver, and the newer just give Code 10 after install https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=Broadcom%20802.11ac%20WDI%20SDIO%20Adapter

The Bios is American Megatrends Inc. 0.18, 26/07/2018.
Following your site instruction I’ve tried to make a usb boot but both attempts failed at 99%

Update:
The separate wifi auto install needs to be run as admin, but when complete still gives a Code 10 error. And there is something wrong with the USB boot creation instructions/image/software - with 6 failures over three sticks and two ports

Solution ATM
At boot, press "F7" (this starts the Bios boot selection), just continue with windows

Reason it worked(?)
(I am making no claim that this is valid.)

Several Broadcom complaint threads "stated" that the actual device had at some point not "turned on" correctly and a timed "mario kart style" mid boot press of the power button would fix it.
Interrupting the Bios with a boot selection (F7 on 12x) therefore seemed a not unreasonable thing to try. And it worked/has worked/is working.
I will update if any developments
