    This device cannot start. (Code 10) High definition audio controller

    Macbook pro early 2011 bootcamp was not willing to let the SSD run in AHCI mode in windows 10, so I did EFI installation of windows 10.
    Everything seems to work but the audio card.
    This device cannot start. (Code 10) in the High definition audio controller.
    I tried installing the drivers manually and automatically and from the bootcamp but this error persists.

    Is the problem in the EFI implementation of the macbook pro early 2011 that windows cannot read , or is it related to drivers ?
    I downloaded latest videocard Intel HD 3000, and realtek generic driver. The audio drivers seems to be from currus logic.

    On Bootcamp install (BIOS) the sound card works fine, but in EFI it can not start the driver.

    Thank you.

    I'm in the exact same situation with the exact same model of MacBook Pro and having the exact same problem. Any help would be much appreciated.

    For the record, a USB audio device (a headset) works for both playback and recording. It's definitely specifically a problem with the built-in audio controller.
