Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players
I have really had a horrible go of this from the past couple weeks. To list everything that has happened would bore everyone to tears but it boils down to two core issues:

1) AMD motherboard with X370 chipsets having some really obtuse and buggy built-in Bluetooth issues. After much experimentation, re-imaging, driver versioning, device manager fiddling, BIOS enabling and de-enabling of chipset devices and so forth, on my system it was outright random AND when Bluetooth services decided to stop functioning would survive non-functioning mode from completely swapping out hard drives. Meaning that there is some bug at the hardware / firmware level that's not yet been completely solved. For some, on some forums and threads, certain combinations of drivers and BIOS's solved the problems but I tried them all and not for me.

2) Occasional flaky and clumsy functionality of Windows 10 imaging functionality. A few days ago I thought I had everything absolutely perfect but after 3 days the Bluetooth went out yet again. So I bought a newer motherboard, throwing in the towel, and have not been able to image a recent image onto the newer setup. What's frustrating is that I booted from the older hard drive but after a failed image process (error 0x8700087 bla bla) now the hard drive that held the image won't boot. How the drove image-source drive was changed (not the destination drive of course) is baffling. Lessons learned:
        a) if using Windows Imaging do not use a valuable hard drive as your 'source image'. Apparently the source drive can be changed and if something goes wrong can be rendered unbootable (though it is readable.) Use a drive with only the image on it
        b) do not use Windows imaging use Macrium Reflect or Acronis. Apparently they actually are much more descriptive about what they are doing and actually allow various selections of images without being invisible, obtuse, and unhelpful.
