Microsoft has finally completed the testing of the microcode updates on Windows 10 and today the company has released the Intel firmware update to all supported devices.
In a post on the Microsoft Community, moderator Lonnie_L explained recently: "When attempting to upgrade to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, select devices with Intel SSD 600p Series or Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series may crash and enter a UEFI screen after reboot".
Microsoft said it is working with OEM partners and Toshiba to identify and block devices with these drives from installing the update.
These blocks will stay in place until Microsoft has resolved the incompatibility issue with the drives, and then users will get the green light to install the update.
If Windows 7 is your operating system of choice and you're planning to install the latest patches on your computer, maybe it's best to wait for a few more days. The update is only for Windows 10 version 1803 and Windows Server version 1803, also known as the April 2018 Update.
If you're not sure how to go about stepping back to the Fall Creators Update, Microsoft gives instructions in the thread discussing the bug.
Previous versions of Windows have already received Intel microcode patches via the Windows Update mechanism in KB4090007 and KB4091666. However, they can't share content from Windows 10 devices to their Android handset - a feature that is expected to arrive soon. The Intel microcode update is only available for Windows 10 April 2018 Update (version 1803) and Windows Server 2016 Version 1803 (Server Core).
