Thinkpad X250: No LAN, No Wireless, No Audio after Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (16299.15)

windows 10 enterprise x64 fall creators update (build 16299.15) has following problems:
- build-in ethernet (intel i218-lm (3) ) shows no connection in os and no network (cable is present and nic leds are active).
- wireless adapter (intel dual band wireless-ac 7265) does not see wireless networks.
- audio device is absent. in device manager only high definition audio controller [pci bus 0, device 27] has problem (device cannot start. code 10).
all these happened after installing build 16299.15 on top of latest regular win10ent x64 version, also this is happened on clean install of insider preview build 16296 from iso and upgrading to build 16299.15.
i tested build 16299.15 with default drivers from ms windows update, i did install all drivers from lenovo site with system update tool. nothing helps.
there is one solution for wired lan - after installing full set of intel's drivers, running diagnostic on network adapter fix connection problem until next reboot.

P.S. BIOS, Drivers, Updates, Dance with tambourine - all was done. I'm a sysadmin in our office, if anybody asks.

Hi Voljka,

For company or production environment, Windows Insider Preview / Release Preview builds is not recommended, as the drivers may not be ready for all types of hardware.  

I would suggest you revert back to Windows 10 RS2 (15063), and wait until it is ready and show up in the Windows Update.

Hi Voljka,

Thank you for the update, I saw this article after you provided the link. Personally, I have not tested it yet. Other than the steps you tried, have you tried to perform a Windows 10 reset? And try to reinstall the hardware driver to see if the issue persist.

There is no need to Windows reset if you do clean install from ISO and do one upgrade to next build. At least I see no logic in it. Also, when I did upgrade from current non-Insider build to last Insider build 16299.15 and faced all mentioned problems, I did Windows reset, and this does not helps.

Hi Voljka,

1. May I know where did you source the ISO file from, for Windows 10 build 16299.15? If the source is from third-party, it may have been modified by others, as I have happened to encounter it.

2. Have you tried the ISO file on other PC?

3. I would suggest you try the upgrade again when the Windows 10 build 16299 appears in the non-Insider Windows Update.

Buld 16299.19 does not solve problem.

All software are form Microsoft.

Temporary solution:

I was running Secure Boot + UEFI boot only. Turning this features off -> Legacy boot mode fixed all problems.

P.S. I will try to reach Lenovo "BIOS writing" department, because this looks like hardware initialisation problem (Wired LAN selftest recover Intel's Ethernet controller until next boot).

Microsoft solve this problem. Right answer (in my case) is:

Please try to configure the following group policy as "Not Configured"

Computer -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> BitLocker Drive Encryption -> Disable new DMA devices when this computer is locked

 

P.S. I turned on this policy for our domain before upgrade to 1709.... What a luck!
