      Details are sketchy, but there’s a post on the Microsoft Answers Forum from “Microsoft Agent” Lonnie_L: When attempting to upgrade to Window 10 April

        HA! Probably by two interns sitting in a windowless room in East Seattle…

        Since it’s Microsoft that is blocking the update – it means it was.

      Hey Y’all,

      Just a little conjecture here but could it possibly be the Optane SSDs? Surely, Intel wouldn’t want that known! 😎

        I’ve got an older Intel SSD as my primary drive and it blocks me from applying 1803, so no I think it’s just Intel SSDs in general.

      I use WPD to lock down my Windows Update. Until the all clear is given, which is usually a small window of a few days lmao. Best windows ever? Maybe for a few days a month, and that’s being generous.

      Windows 1803 was installed very early on my laptop, so this problem ws not known yet, I guess.

      There is a Intel 600p in there and I noticed that with 1803 the SSD ran hot (55-60 degrees) after a while and stayed on that level. I could not notice any additional activity on either CPU or Disk with Process Explorer.

      With 1709 it normally runs around 25-30 degrees, so I wonder what was going on under the hood with 1803.

      For the time being I am back on 1709.

      I wonder how I know that the problem is solved, as I set the update to Semi Annual with 40 days delay.

      Microsoft and Intel have stated that the following SSDs are impacted (as of May 10):

      1) Intel 600p series
      2) Intel Pro 6000p series

      The recommendation is to roll-back to version 1709 if you have one of the above SSDs and have 1803 currently installed.
