How to Fix Device Not Migrated in Windows 10?

"Device not migrated" is a common error that may appear when you're attempting to install new hardware. It's frustrating, but thankfully it can often be fixed in just a few minutes.

Method 1: Uninstall the Driver

You can uninstall and reinstall the driver. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Click the Start button and then click Control Panel.
  • In Control Panel, click Programs and then click Uninstall a Program.

Click Conexant SmartAudio HD in the list of installed programs to select it for removal, right-click Conexant SmartAudio HD in the list of installed programs, and then click Uninstall to remove it from your computer.

Method 2: Update the Driver

If you're using a new Windows 10 computer and trying to connect it to the internet, you may run into this issue.

In order to fix this issue, you need to make sure that your network adapter is up-to-date. To do so:

  • Open Device Manager by pressing Win+X and then selecting "Device Manager."
  • Expand Network Adapters and right-click on each of them in turn (remembering not to right-click on Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter). On the drop down menu that appears select Update Driver Software... and follow the prompts from there.

Method 3: Disable Energy Efficient Ethernet in BIOS

Open the BIOS.

Find the option to disable Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE). This may be called “Pause Wake Up Events” or “ATA/ATAPI Pause Mode”, but not always. If you can't find it, look for a setting that says "Energy Saving".

Disable this setting and save changes by pressing F10 on the keyboard. When asked to confirm your changes, press Y for yes or A for accept or whatever is listed next to yes in your BIOS settings panel.

Reboot computer/restart device and try again!

After trying all of these methods you can fix the Device Not Migrated error in Windows 10.

Device Manager - In the device manager, you need to look for a yellow exclamation mark next to the device that you want to troubleshoot, right-click on it and select Troubleshoot option from the context menu.

System Configuration (MSConfig) - Open Msconfig by typing this command in the Run dialog box or search bar: CMD + R (Window key + R), then type "MSConfig" without quotes in the Run dialog box and click the OK button; go to Startup tab, uncheck all options except one here if any are checked, restart your PC when prompted after checking them off; now check if the problem is resolved or not by running full system scan using anti-malware software like Windows Defender or Malwarebytes.

Method 4: Select a Backup File Type.

The fourth step is to select a backup file type. If you're using an external hard drive, choose the "USB-connected computers" option. If you're using another local storage device, choose the “Network location” option and type in the address of your backup drive.

Next, choose where you want to save your backup file to on your computer: On this PC (default), OneDrive, or External Location (which will be whatever external device you selected).

Finally, give it a name and set up a password if desired so only people with access can restore them. You can also back up Windows system files only or both Windows system files and personal files—just make sure not to check both boxes because doing so will result in duplicates when restoring from backups.
