Blue Screen of Death Delays Windows 10 Update

Terence Owen | 17 April, 2018, 19:10

The bug was causing reliability issues which is why Microsoft chose to delay its release.

Microsoft says it found reliability issues with build 17133 during testing, and sources tell Windows Central that the company found an undisclosed blocking bug just a few days before Redstone 4 was supposed to begin official rollout.

Windows Latest wrote in a blog post: "While Microsoft remained tight-lipped on the reason for this decision, it's believed that a blocking bug has delayed the release".

The firm has recently fixed the bug with a new release yesterday, pushing out an updated Windows build for Insiders.

Microsoft's insider build announcement explained, "Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17134 (RS4) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring".

According to Windows 10 sleuth WalkingCat, Microsoft appears to have renamed the Spring Creators Update -formerly known as Redstone 4- to the "Windows 10 April 2018 Update", a naming scheme that makes more sense. Windows customers don't lose anything as they may continue to use the version of Windows 10 that is installed on their devices.
