Microsoft confirms Windows 10 update bug causes boot issues

Windows 10 update major bug

If your Windows 10 computer started rendering Blue Screen of
Death when you run Check Disk command, don’t worry – you’ll be
able to use your device properly again in the next 24 hours,
according to Microsoft.

Yesterday, we reported that some Windows 10 PCs are rendered a
useless brick
when users run the built-in Check Disk Utility (chkdsk).
Check Disk Utility basically allows you to use the Command
Prompt to check a specified disk and repair/recover data on the
drive when corruption is detected.

Generally, users are recommended to use Check Disk Utility when
they’ve issues with Windows 10 or Windows Update problems. This
is because the free tool is also able to detect malfunctioning
sectors on the hard drive and recover your data or corrupted
system file.

With a poorly-crafted update, Microsoft broke the Check Disk
tool and it could crash some devices with ‘File System’ stop
code error, as shown in the screenshot below.

Windows 10 NTFS BSODMicrosoft says a “small
number of devices” that have installed Windows 10 update
KB4592438 might not boot if you run “chkdsk /f” command. This
is because a bug in the tool is damaging the file system, which
makes the affected device unbootable.

Surprisingly, Microsoft acknowledged the issue quickly and the
company has already started rolling out a fix, but you might
not receive patch immediately. The software maker noted that
the system crashes will be prevented automatically in the next
24 hours and you don’t need to make any changes.

Restarting your device might help the server-side update to
apply to your device faster, but changes can still take up to
24 hours to propagate.

For enterprises or non-managed devices, you can configure a
special Group Policy to address the problem:

  1. In the Recovery Console, select Advanced options.
  2. Select Command Prompt
  3. In Command Prompt, type: chkdsk /f
  4. Once done, type exit
  5. The device will restart as expected and it will not crash.

Note that the above instructions are for affected enterprise
users only. As we mentioned at the outset, Windows 10 customers
will get the patch automatically and no actions are required.

In addition to system crashes, users have also reported that

Windows 10’s latest update causes high CPU usage,
installation issues, temporary data loss, and more.
