Microsoft stops rollout of Windows 10 update for devices with select Intel, Toshiba SSDs

Microsoft has halted the rollout of its Windows 10 April 2018 update to some machines after discovering PCs with certain Intel and Toshiba solid state hard drive models would crash following patching.

The software giant released two support topics last week, following user reports of Windows 10 not working properly after the update.

The company identified that “select devices with Toshiba XG4 Series, Toshiba XG5 Series or Toshiba BG3 Series solid state disk (SSD) drives may exhibit lower battery life” and that “select devices with Intel SSD 600p Series or Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series may crash and enter a UEFI screen after reboot” when attempting the update.

As a result Microsoft said it was is working with the vendors to block devices with the incompatible components from installing the update and said it anticipated that the release date for the resolution for this issue would be available in early June.

In the meantime, the vendor recommends users experiencing the issue revert to the previous update of Windows 10.
