  • Hi WayneChang212,

    did you download, burn and installed the Windows Developer Preview as directed on the site given below?


    You may try using a USB 2.0 for your install and see if you have sufficient disk space.

  • Try remove all devices that connect to PC and then restart it and if it wasn't any error, then connect them one by one and see which one cause error.

    If nothing is connected to your system, it is likely be issue due installation of Windows.

  • USBXHCI.sys is the USB 3.0 driver, so remove the devices connected to the USB 3.0 port and use the USB 2.0 port instead.
