[attempted solution]"Device being lost" error

Don't think it is worth posting as an actual fix just yet, also (WARNING!!) it was exported from the Win7's registry so needs to be re-checked if fits the registry structure of Win10 beforehand (so someone with a Win10 machine, please inspect ;) ). Anyway, save the below as a text file with a .reg extension (or just download the attached one, which is essentially the same), open as defaulted by the OS, answer "Yes" to every confirmation dialog, reboot (do not omit this step!), have fun :)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
