Hey,
i get the same Error on the 950XL.

Looks like the Phone Reregisters during deployment in Mass Storage Mode, but Windows cant start the drivers.
Look at the Hardware Manager there should be an unknown device. I didn´t find a fix for this either :/

This is a known issue. Use a previous version o WOA Deployer. A fix should be added in the near future.

Should be fixed with the 2.5.1 release!

Actually, this messed up my device. The boot menu now gives med the option to boot W10 or the dev menu. However it does not boot, I see lots of text and then everything just stops. Not sure if this is W10M or W10ARM booting, I only see one.

Also, going back to mass storage mode, I now fire WOA Deployer - Dual Boot and hots Check status, and not get Duak Boot cannot be enabled in this phone. Please, check that Windows 10 Phone (the original OS) and Windows 10 ARM are both present. Also, check that Windows 10 ARM Setup has been completed.

Tried using 2.5.2 instead of 2.6, and this fixed this particular issue. However, it looks like this ruined any chance of running a dual boot as I'm no longer able to boot the device into W10m as far as I can see.

Hi,
had the same problem suppose I had 2 things wrong.
  • My Virtual CD-Drive had a drive letter leaving a gap in the sequence. So that that the lumia first drive letter cam up, second got hidden behind the Virtual drive and third on, cam up again. => when the deployment start you should have 4 letters and the 5th is created during deployment.
  • my data drive had not enough place. In the options it was set to 18gB, but only 13 where available. So I had to delete some pictures to free up space form the data partition.
So it would be good if the deployment tool would check for the right (normal) number of Drives and if there is suffictient space before deployment starts.

Yes you can. It's not very intuitive, but you have to go to the Advanced tab and make sure "Keep Windows 10 Mobile" (or similar) is selected. Then deploy Windows 10 ARM. Boot and finalize the Win 10 ARM install and reboot the device into the boot menu and select "USB Mass Storage Mode". Plug the phone back into the computer. Open Woadeployer and go to the Dual Boot tab. Select "Check" and see if that works. If it does, you will now have the option to boot into Windows 10 Mobile in the boot menu. If you got an error, go to the Advance tab and select "Force Dual Boot". That should add the option to boot into Windows 10 Mobile to the boot menu.

It took me a while to figure this out.
