XBOX 360 Wireless Receiver not working after update to Windows 10 2004 Build 19041.610

After updating to the latest Windows 10 version my XBOX 360 wireless receiver was not recognized anymore and shown as “unknown device” in the device manager.

To fix this you´ll need to modify the “xusb21.inf” file that comes with the driver package as explained in this video:

You might have some trouble with enabling the testsigning for the now modified driver, especially if you are runnig Windows 10 Home. To fix this reboot your PC with this command "shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00".

Your pc will then boot into the advanced Windows options and there you can deactivate the driver signing for the next restart. Then you can install the unsigned driver, reboot the machine and enjoy your wireless controller working again.

Virtual Box CompareExchange128 Error on Windows 10 install

If you get the “CompareExchange128” error – a CPU related error  – when trying to install Windows 10 with VirtualBox, Dirk Strauss has the solution for you:

  • shut down the vm
  • open a cmd prompt and point it to the installation directory of your VirtualBox (most likely C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox)
  • then type “vboxmanage setextradata [vmname] VBoxInternal/CPUM/CMPXCHG16B 1”
  • don´t forget to replace [vmname] with the name of your virtual machine (I had some trouble with blank spaces, so you might wanna rename your VM for a second)
  • restart the vm
  • install Windows 10
