  • Bugs with Win10 1809 June cumulative update and Realtek Bluetooth, Avast won’t play with 1903, and black screens on reboot

    We’re seeing all sorts of oddities with this month’s patches.

    From @EP we have news (if you can call it that) saying that Avast antivirus still doesn’t play well with Win10 1903.

    From @snissen there’s a report that the June cumulative update for Win10 1809 leads to a black screen on reboot. This sounds a lot like the acknowledged problem:

    We are investigating reports that a small number of devices may startup to a black screen during the first logon after installing updates.
    Affected platforms:
    • Client: Windows 10, version 1809; Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019; Windows 10, version 1803
    • Server: Windows Server 2019
    Workaround: To mitigate this issue, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, then select the Power button in the lower right corner of the screen and select Restart. Your device should now restart normally.

    And Microsoft has acknowledged that the June cumulative update for Win10 1809 breaks some Realtek Bluetooth hardware:

    Devices with Realtek Bluetooth radios in some circumstances may have issues pairing or connecting to devices.

    Microsoft says it’s working on resolving the problems and will have a solution real soon now.

    Oh. And the apparent bug with setting Windows Update Advanced options clobbering all of the options still hasn’t been acknowledged, much less fixed.
