Blue Screen of Death Delays Windows 10 Update

Blue Screen of Death Delays Windows 10 Update

Redstone 4 is the codename of Microsoft's next major Windows 10 update and the company was expected to launch this update in the near future. This has led to the company developing an entirely new build of the upgrade known as Windows 10 Build 17134. Stories did however seem to work as intended on Windows 10 PCs which are naturally more powerful than Windows 10 Mobile smartphones and could handle the extra processing necessary for the real-time video editing. While Microsoft has not officially named the update (despite using the term "Spring Creators Update" in materials several times) sources state that it will be called the "Windows 10 April 208 Update", according to a video discovered by Microsoft aficionado WalkingCat.

For some insider testers, Microsoft released Redstone 4 test build, No. 17134 on April 16.

Microsoft today released a new Windows 10 preview for PCs with fixes to "reliability issues".

Microsoft says that instead of shipping the Springs Creators Update faulty as it was, and then delivering an update later to fix the issues, it made a decision to hold off on deploying the defective build altogether. This build doesn't bring any new features but includes the fixes from KB4100375 alongside additional fixes and improvements to make the OS more stable. As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix. Now, build 17134 is Microsoft's next attempt at an RTM build.

In a blog post, Dona Sarkar, boss of the Windows Insider Program, announced on Tuesday that the firm has developed a fix for the 'blocking bug' which prevented the rollout of the update earlier this month. We'll let you know when we have a timeframe for when you can expect the Windows 10 upgrade.
