I have recently bought a Raspberry Pi Zero (RPi), and now I'm trying to get it connected via ssh to my pc (using the program putty).
I have two laptops, both from HP and both running (very close to) the newest Windows 10 version:
- HP Pavilion 17-ab002nb, from now on laptop A
- HP ProBook 4730s, laptop B
I installed the necessary stuff on the RPi, and when I plug it in laptop A it shows up in the device manager under
Network Adapters as
USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget #2:
The installed driver looks like this:
And I can simply connect with the RPi over ssh, using the address
When I connect it to laptop B I get a completely different result though, the RPi shows up under
Ports (COM & LPT) as
Serial USB Device (COM6):
With driver details:
This is wrong, the RPi should not be recognised as a Serial device. I asked in the
freenode#raspberrypi IRC channel and they confirmed that my RPi is set up correctly.
I tried copying the driver from laptop A to laptop B and installing it from within the
Device Manager, but it didn't work:
Is there a way to force Windows to install the correct driver?
Edit: As requested, a screenshot of the device manager on
Devices by connection view. I'm not sure where I can find the
device ID, but I added the device locations of a couple of "interesting" devices in the image:
Edit 2: The
Hardware Ids for the Serial device (on laptop B):
The same Ids on laptop A:
They are indeed exactly the same.
