    Problem is that I have a "Bluetooth USB Host Controller" driver prblem.

    Background - I am moving my XP Pro SP3 from my Late 08 UMBP 15" to my new 17" UMP 2.8GHz. Used WinClone and wrote the image to the new 17" machine.

    Had to get the audio driver from the 17" OSX DVD BootCamp folder. Everything works but the Bluetooth.

    Probalbly because the Apple drivers had already been installed on the old machine; when I run the BootCamp driver install for the new machine, the process errors out and will not complete.

    If anyone has had this problem and found a solution, please share the solution.

    Thank you, Neil

    Uninstall the dud bluetooth entry in Device Mananger then open up USB devices and uninstall the USB Hub entry. Rescan for new hardware by right clicking at the very top and cross your fingers.
