Windows 10 1607- 1803 Inplace HardBlock

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to upgrade some surfaces pro 4 to 1803 using an OSD Inplace.  (this works on other machines BTW)

I seen two devices with exactly the same HARDBLOCK in the logs.

OEM01.inf and OEM02.inf

I cannot find what these devices are anyone got any ideas where I can find out the information, I've scanned through the full scan and searched for a Hardblock without any results.

Thanks for any assistance in advanced.

open either of the 2 files (stored in C:\Windows\Inf) with notepad, and see what the driver actually is, that should help you pinpoint the problem
