This applies, among other things, to compatibility problems with certain graphics drivers from Intel and audio drivers from Conexant. Certain Bluetooth drivers from Realtek are also not compatible with the update.

Microsoft further relaxes the restrictions on the automatic distribution of the May 2020 update for Windows 10 . Systems are now also converted to version 2004 via Windows Update , on which an older OS version is currently running, which in turn is nearing the end of support. The company thus ensures that these systems continue to be supplied with security updates.

Next, however, Windows 10 version 1809, the fall update of 2018, will drop out of regular support. This OS version last received security-related patches on November 10, 2020 - the company had already postponed the date from May to November due to the corona crisis.

In principle, the systems that automatically receive the update to version 2004 are selected using a machine learning model that has been “intelligently” selecting suitable PCs since mid-June. "With the help of the machine learning-based training that we have carried out so far, we are increasing the number of devices that will be selected for the automatic update to Windows 10, version 2004, and that are nearing the end of support," it says now in the Windows Release Health Dashboard .

users of Windows 10 version 1903 or version 1909 who have not yet received the update automatically can initiate the update themselves.

The switch to the May 2020 update has so far not gone smoothly. Users have had multiple side effects, including unavailable printers and display errors. The memory function may not work properly after an update. There were also problems with incompatible drivers. Microsoft has been using

machine learning since the May 2019 update to improve the distribution of new versions of Windows. The trigger for the change was the messed up start of the update to version 1809 more than two years ago. It led to data loss for some users, which is why Microsoft had to temporarily withdraw the update.
