Keep crashing

Software King of the World Microsoft has encountered a problem with Intel’s SSD 600p and Pro 6000p Series.

Whenever systems running an Intel SSD install the new Windows 10 April 2018 Update their machines crash.

While users have been able to roll back their system to a usable state, Vole has been unable to find the cause of the problem. To prevent further problems, Microsoft has opted to block the April 2018 Update to such systems.

In a post on the Microsoft Community, moderator Lonnie_L said the machines were crashing and entering a UEFI screen after reboot.

“Microsoft is working with OEM partners and Intel to identify and block devices with Intel SSD 600p Series or Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series from installing the April 2018 Update due to a known incompatibility that may cause performance and stability issues. If you have encountered this issue, follow the steps to reinstall the previous operating system (Windows 10, version 1709)”, she said.

Microsoft is working on a resolution that will allow the April 2018 Update on these devices soon but in the meantime it is easier for Microsoft to block the update for users who are likely to experience problems.
