Peace has once again returned to the valley! Microsoft devices like the Surface Pro 7 and the Surface Laptop 3 will soon be able to deploy the Windows 10 May 2020 Update.
This, after these two machines were one of the many that were left out of the initial rollout.
Among them was one critical bug, one that caused unexpected restarts for devices that had more than one Always On, Always Connected network adapter. This meant that the two sleek little Surface machines mentioned above had received compatibility holds.
But now, the software titan has marked the issue as mitigated on its known issues page.
The fix actually rolled out as part of the latest round of Patch Tuesday updates. Meaning, if you are on build 19041.329, then you are good to go.
Of course, that is to say that if your machine was susceptible to the issue, then you were likely never offered the update in the first place — the compatibility hold was as solid as it could get.
Unfortunately, that hold is still not lifted.
If you are on Windows 10 version 1909, you still will not see version 2004 in Windows Update. But the safeguard is all set to be removed in the coming weeks, according to the latest information provided by Microsoft.
It is unclear why this is taking so long. Perhaps the company wants to send out the fix and test it out before removing the block. Or maybe, it takes time to fold the patch into the main upgrade image for the operating system.
In any case, these were two of the newest Microsoft PCs that were blocked from installing the latest version of Windows 10.
Owners of these two machines should soon be good to go.
