Windows 7: Driver Error code 3 with not working devices also on Virtual Machine

Driver Error code 3 with not working devices also on Virtual Machine

Hello to everybody,
I am trying to post a help request here since is much time i try to solve this problem without success.
What brought me to post the help request is the new fact that i get the same error after ported my
system in a Virtual Machine.

I explain better.
Several years ago I purchased an HP Desktop P6228it equipped with Q8300 CPU and 6Gbytes of RAM.
It came with Windows 7 (don't remember if Pro or Home) and I updated it with Windows 7 Ultimate.
It worked fine for long time when suddenly the DVD stopped to work.
I supposed to be an hardware failure so i didn't cared to much, it was not essential for me.
Then also the audio stopped to work. It was neither essential too, so i didn't cared.
Then I realized that some other "exclamation points" was showed in the Device Manager.
I have at moment a "code 3" for the following devices:
Audio, Intel ICH10LPC, Intel QuadCPU, Display, CD-ROM.
I tried to install a PicoScope device and also it have now a "code 3" error in the device driver.

Recently i virtualized all my systems as sort of backup procedure.
Also this PC has been virtualized and tested.
During the test of the virtualization on a completely different computer i surprisingly noticed that
also on the virtual machine the same errors was listed.
So i realized the computer has not hardware problems but completely software problems.
I would really appreciate an help about this "code 3" error.
I followed a number of hints and procedures i found around, but none of the ones i applied
succeeded.

Of course I could re-format all, but obviously it is the my last option.

Help please... i think that having this problem solved would help many others.
:-)

SOLVED!
I finally managed to solve it!
I have finally found this link:

windows 7 - Several devices in Device Manager have Code 3 error - Super User

The instructions are related to Windows 7 32 bit.
I exported a REG file of a Windows 7 64 bit machine I also have.
I imported in the defective o.s. and IT WORKED!

It has to do with a wrong setting of the file: wdf01000.sys
My registry was rather different than a working one.
It should look as:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Wdf01000]
"DisplayName"="@%SystemRoot%\\system32\\drivers\\Wdf01000.sys,-1000"
"Group"="WdfLoadGroup"
"ImagePath"=hex(2):73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,64,00,\
72,00,69,00,76,00,65,00,72,00,73,00,5c,00,57,00,64,00,66,00,30,00,31,00,30,\
00,30,00,30,00,2e,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,00,00
"ErrorControl"=dword:00000001
"Start"=dword:00000000
"Type"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Wdf01000\Enum]
"0"="Root\\LEGACY_WDF01000\\0000"
"Count"=dword:00000001
"NextInstance"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Wdf01000\Parameters]
"MajorVersion"=dword:00000001
"MinorVersion"=dword:0000000b
"BuildNumber"=dword:00000000

I hope this info will help others!

GoodBye!
