Microsoft recently announced a new upgrade block for Windows 10
version 1903 (May 2019 Update) on PCs with
outdated Intel RST drivers. The Redmond firm has been
recommending users to install the newer versions of the
drivers before deploying Windows 10 version 1903 on their
Windows 10 users won’t see the May 2019 Update if they have
Intel RST drivers version between 188.8.131.522 and 184.108.40.2063.
If your device is running a newer version, you should be able
to install Windows 10 version 1903.
Microsoft originally stated that the recommended version of
Intel RST driver is 220.127.116.114, but the company is now asking
users to install version 18.104.22.1680 instead. On August 10,
Microsoft updated the documentation on its website
to reflect the new change.
According to Microsoft, users with versions 22.214.171.1244 or
later shouldn’t run into issues, though the company still
recommends installing 126.96.36.1990.
Microsoft promises fix
Microsoft has also confirmed that a fix will be deployed later
‘We are working on a resolution and estimate a solution will be
available in late August,” the document reads.
If you’re planning to install the May 2019 Update through Media
Creation Tools or other ways, make sure the drivers on your PC
are up-to-date. While you can download the
driver directly from Intel, you should first look for the
updated driver on the PC manufacturer’s website as some
manufacturers customize Intel drivers.
After updating drivers, it can take up to 48 hours before you
can install Windows 10, version 1903.
