Microsoft Says It Fixed Two Major Windows 10 Version 1903 Bugs

  • Microsoft has recently announced that two more bugs in Windows 10 version 1903 got fixed, lifting the safeguards and allowing devices previously impacted to install the May update.

    First and foremost, Microsoft originally said that the May 2019 cumulative update KB4497935 introduced a bug prevent domain-connected devices using MIT Kerberos realms to start up.

    “Devices connected to a domain that is configured to use MIT Kerberos realms will not start up or may continue to restart after updating,” the software giant explained at that time.

    The most recent cumulative update for version 1903, which was published on August 30 as KB4512941, resolves this problem, and Microsoft says the safeguard was lifted.

    "New updates coming tomorrow"

    This block was originally put in place in order to prevent devices impacted by the bug from upgrading to Windows 10 version 1903 and thus prevent any issues from happening on these computers.

    “To safeguard your update experience, we have applied a compatibility hold on devices configured to use MIT Kerberos realm from being offered Windows 10, version 1903 or Windows Server, version 1903,” Microsoft says.

    Additionally, the firm has also fixed a problem with Intel drivers, also acknowledged in May.

    “Certain versions of Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) drivers may cause updating to Windows 10, version 1903 to fail,” Microsoft said earlier this year.

    The issue was fixed in cumulative update KB4512941 and the safeguard was removed, so more devices can install the Windows 10 May 2019 Update.

    While KB4512941 was offered as optional, Microsoft will roll out new cumulative updates as part of the Patch Tuesday cycle later today. These updates will be aimed at all supported Windows 10 versions and will include security fixes as well in order to resolve vulnerabilities in the operating system and the built-in components.
