At this time, Microsoft should probably call it one day on Windows 10’s troubled 1809 update. Last week, the company must again block the patch for some users. However, there is a small ray of sunlight for Microsoft, with the blame of falling – at least in part – on Intel’s shoulders.
Microsoft delays the latest version of Windows 1
0 after reports of mass removal files
Microsoft has temporarily stopped the deployment of the October 2018 update for Windows 10 (version 1809), writing on a page dedicated to the update that it would “investigate isolated reports from users who lack certain files after updating.”
While Microsoft continues to update its status status “Status Dashboard”, users can visit the company’s dedicated site to find out which patches are blocked and why.
For certain systems with Intel monitors, Microsoft was forced to block 1809 after Intel “accidentally released” a new driver such as “unintentionally enabled unsupported features in Windows.”
Affected operating systems include Windows 10, Windows Server 2019, and Windows Server.
The problem with the drivers is not system-implanting, but still annoying as the status page explains:
After updating to Windows 10, version 1809, audio playback from a monitor or TV can be connected to a computer via HDMI, USB-C or a DisplayPort does not work properly on devices with these drivers.
The page continues to say that Intel and Microsoft work together to “expire [the] monitors.” Meanwhile, there is a temporary action, but you must contact a Microsoft agent to get it.
Microsoft will implement status dashboard after a horror of Windows updates
Over the last month, Microsoft has done a great job of convincing people to never reinstall Windows after a data recovery of the Windows 10 update made it through QA. Now, depending on corporate user pressures, Microsoft has started working on a status dashboard for updates to prevent IT administrators from being determined in the future.
