As annoying as this bug can be, Jolla has planned to migrate TJC content to this new forum by the end of the year, so I don’t think we should duplicate our content manually.

And you think the OP wants to wait until the end of the year for a solution coming soon™?
There is absolutely no date given when this may be done (best: before starting the new forum!)

In principle you are right. But I do understand every single poster here to start a new thread for an old -on TJC- not solved problem.

I had the same Problem on a Win 10 machine and could not get the driver runnig.
The resolution for me was to try it on an older Win 7 computer - there it worked.
Installing Sailfish was a kind of computer-hopping for me, because my main system (pclinuxos) had no fastboot driver, my laptop with manjaro aborted the installation with different error messages and the same happened on a xubuntu 18.04 laptop.
So installation was ok, but finding a computer wher everything worked, was not easy.
So my advice for you is: try it on a different computer (maybe you find a Win 7 installation anywhere?).

You know that it won’t change anything.
It’s tracked by Jolla, there is not much more we can do, except helping them with the fix.

The problem is not Windows 10, but Windows 10 since version 2004 (as described in the first post).
Up to version 1909 I couldn’t find any problems with the fastboot driver.
It is therefore sufficient to use a device on which the “May 2020 update” has not yet been installed.
