Microsoft Resolves Four Major Issues To Remove Upgrade Blocks For Windows 10 May 2019 Update

Microsoft released Windows 10 May 2019 Update with a bunch of major features. However, thousands of users were still unable to install the latest update due to some major issues. If you are one of those who were unable to install the update, perhaps you can install it now. Microsoft has lifted numerous upgrade blocks for Windows 10 May 2019 Update today. The company has released a new update which resolved 4 major issues that restricted users from updating their systems.

RTC Black Screen Bug

The Windows Release Health Dashboard suggests that the first issue that was resolved triggered a black screen error. This issue was caused while establishing a Remote Desktop connection to some devices with legacy GPU drivers. You should no longer experience any problems while updating your systems.

Intel RST Driver Issues

The second issue was caused by some Intel storage drivers. The installation of Windows 10 May 2019 Update failed on systems running specific versions of Intel Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) drivers. This issue is resolved now and you should expect to install the update in early September.

Windows Sandbox Error

Those users who installed the Windows 10 May 2019 update and changed the OS language during the update process experienced an issue. They were unable to launch Windows Sandbox with an error code 0x80070002. Microsoft has resolved the issue and Windows Sandbox should work well without any errors.

Kerberos Domain Connected Devices Bug

Microsoft has addressed an issue that prevented Kerberos domain connected devices from starting up. These devices continued to restart in some cases.

Although Microsoft has removed the aforementioned upgrade blocks, you might need to wait up to 48 hours to install Windows 10 May 2019 Update on your devices. You can head towards the Windows Update section to get these fixes.

It seems like some users still need to wait for a few more weeks as Microsoft is currently investing two other issues as well. Some users are reported that the update fails to install with an error “Updates Failed, There were problems installing some updates, “try again later” and “Error 0x80073701.” Moreover, the users of Surface Book 2 devices with Nvidia dGPU are unable to open some games or apps. You can visit the Windows Health Dashboard page to find out more about these issues.
