Microsoft's Windows 10 April Update doesn't play nice with Toshiba SSDs either

Microsoft has released three new updates for Windows 10.

The two other updates Microsoft released today, KB4134660 and KB4134661, are meant to spam users with notifications and get them to update to the latest Windows 10 version, the April 2018 Update.

As a result, Microsoft says it's working with Toshiba and hardware manufacturers to block devices running these SSDs from installing the April 2018 Update. Following the general availability of Windows Server version 1803 last week, Windows Insiders can also download today a new build of the next Windows Server Semi-Annual Channel release, which should be available later this year.

As to the timeframe for a solution for these Toshiba SSDs, Microsoft believes that a fix will be ready in early June; so hopefully within a month.

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". The update is available as a standalone download and installation on the Microsoft Update Catalog website as well.

While these issues have not been experienced by every Windows 10 user who upgraded, Windows admins who are considering updating their company's machines may want to wait until the bugs have been worked out. "If you have encountered this issue, follow the steps to reinstall the previous operating system (Windows 10, version 1709)", she said.
