The easiest way to get rid of the "device not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match" error is to detect the device

You need to find the Device Code (Devide Id), copy it, enter it into the Google search bar, and press Enter. The device code you entered will be displayed.

Memorize or write down the name of the device and follow the next step-by-step instructions.

  • Hold down the Win + R key combination; the Run window will appear.
  • Type the command devmgmt.msc on the line and click Enter. The Device Manager will open in a new window.
  • Find the device you want. Right-click on it and select the Properties section.
  • Go to the Events subsection. Most likely, the message "Device not migrated" will be displayed here.

Now, you need to download and update the device driver manually. Find on the Web the official website of the device that generates the "device not migrated Windows 10" error. In the driver section, download the latest driver you need to your computer, then go back to the Device Manager.

Find the device in the catalog and right-click on it. Select the Update Driver tab in the new window. Since the driver patch is already on your computer, click the Search my computer for drivers option. In the Browse tab, select the path to the new driver patch in the system directory and press Enter.

The driver is updated on the device. After finishing the installation, you need to restart your personal computer. Another way to solve the problem of "device not migrated due to partial or ambiguous match" is to remove the installed device and update it automatically. Go to Task Manager using the above method. Right-click on the device name and click on Remove device. Confirm the action.

After the next reboot, the Windows operating system will independently update the driver of the problem device.

Another way to solve the problem is to roll back the OS version to the last point when the OS was running smoothly

Type a restore point in the Windows search bar. Click on the Create a restore point function. Now, select System Restore and click Next.

In the list of intermediate versions that appears, you need to select exactly the restore point before the "device not migrated" error. Click Finish. Now, be patient until the process of downgrading to the previous working version of Windows is over.
