Hey guys, to fix the WDF_VIOLATION BSOD, you will need to boot into the recovery enviroment, open CMD. Then you will need to ensure you know which partition your Windows is installed on. Then you will need to rename or delete the “HpqKbFiltr.sys” driver and once you’ve done that you can restart and Windows will boot sucessfully.This took us an entire day to locate and fix but it was well worth it, we really didn’t like the idea of remaging every PC with an image created pre-broken update. Hopefully this fix works for you also.
start a cmd prompt and navigate to the next directory:
1. install docker
2. start docker, go to ‘image’, select ‘add’ -> ‘add from url’. in repository name put ‘debian’. When asked for variant – pick pretty much any you want. I chose testing-slim
3. once (2) completes, click on the image and select ‘launch’. not sure how relevant this is, but i gave my container administrative privileges.
4. go to ‘container’ tab. find newly created container. click ‘details’. last tab is your terminal
5. execute: ‘sudo apt-get update’ followed by ‘sudo apt-get install ssh tmux’
6. (optional) add your private ssh key by executing: “ssh-add – <<EOF”, pasting your key and typing “EOF”
7. use SSH remote port forwarding while you ssh back to your machine, eg: ssh -R 1080:<router-ip>:80 username@machine-you-log-in-from
8. on machine you log in from (your actual computer you’re sitting by) open web browser and navigate to port 1080.
