Hi Kral,

This is very odd to appear on Windows 10, it sounds like you may have a damaged Windows install. Are you able to locate the devices being installed in Device Manager, right click one and select Properties and let us know what the Device Status is?

Also, please check the Event Viewer for any information around the time the adapter is failing to install.
