I read the big thread. There is a post there about the controller returning a=
n out of bounds or invalid ID. That would be a problem, with the controller.=


Dell is a company that largely deals with Windows. I=E2=80=99m sure Windows d=
oes not care one whit about invalid USB controllers that maybe hijacking you=
r hardware, and neither does Dell because 99% of their customers are using w=
indows.

But here=E2=80=99s the thing.

YOU have a problem. You have been given two suggestions on how to mitigate y=
our problem, and your response is =E2=80=9CI don=E2=80=99t WANNA!=E2=80=9D W=
hich is fine, but then you repeatedly complain about how your problems is no=
t solved. It=E2=80=99s no ones job to solve your problem. This is not a comm=
on problem. This is an edge case. Sucks, but that=E2=80=99s the way it is.

If you want to use Linux, fine, this is NOT the place to ask for suggestions=
 on what Linux to switch to, because this is not a Linux list, and you askin=
g that here comes across as you simply bring a shit-stirrer.

If you think compiling a kernel is too hard and you can=E2=80=99t figure out=
 how/refuse to disable the errant usb in your UEFI, then yes, switching OS i=
s another, possible, solution for you. I would not be at all surprised to fi=
nd you have problems on current Linux.

I would buy a USB3 card ($20?) with a different controller, put that in, and=
 disable the onboard USB-3, but that=E2=80=99s me.

--=20
My main job is trying to come up with new and innovative and effective ways t=
o reject even more mail. I'm up to about 97% now=
