    The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device (NB. FOR USB)


    *** Problem has reappeared, so this is NOT a solution ****
    It worked for 5 reboots, so strange it reappeared

    Been searching for days to find a solution for this problem (including fresh installs of Windows 10 etc), and today accidentally found it ... for my Asus Maximus V111 Formula at least, but it may also work on other motherboards

    In BIOS, ensure that the XHCI Hand-Off is set to ENABLED (default is disabled)

    I changed this, and now I can boot the system with USB devices inserted, and not get any Kernal-PnP warnings

    Hope this helps somebody else

    I sometimes have this issue. I've already tried the fixes above and they didn't work for me.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the tip about setting WDF to automatic.. unfortunately it didn't help

    I have now disabled the Portable Device Enumerator Service, which seems to have stopped the message... not sure if this is a good idea or not, as I am not quite sure if this service is needed

    It is common to have this error, has been around for over a decade. The Windows Driver Foundation is looking for a device that was attached too the machine previously but which is not currently attached. If you know what device that may be, reattach it and see if the problem persists. If it does not then when you want to disconnect the device do so by taking the device offline first or eject the device.

    Not really rue in my case...
    I installe dthe system clean, and the only USB device is my Windows 10 media device that I used to install from. This has stayed connected all the time from the time I installed (and I know it is the dvice, as the message clearly points to it)
    The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\_??_USBSTOR#Disk&Ven_Kingston&Prod_DataTraveler_3.0&Rev_PMAP#1C6F654E3F31EF6089826BCE &0#{53f56307-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}.

    No messages since I disabled the portable device enumerator

    While that used to work on W8/8.1 it no longer works for W10

    I have now disabled the Portable Device Enumerator Service, which seems to have stopped the message... not sure if this is a good idea or not, as I am not quite sure if this service is needed
    That or deleting the corresponding key in the registry (if Windows lets you) usually works for me.

    The service isn't really needed. It's used to sync media content to external drives mostly.

    Default Behavior

    The Portable Device Enumerator Service is running as LocalSystem in a shared process of svchost.exe. Other services might run in the same process. If Portable Device Enumerator Service fails to start, the error is logged. Windows 10 startup proceeds, but a message box is displayed informing you that the WPDBusEnum service has failed to start.
