As we've noted previously, the Windows 10 April 2018 update is one of the buggiest yet. Thankfully, Microsoft has been working on fixing the issues, and more are rolling out as we speak. Windows 10 build 17134.81 remedies critical issues with Intel and Toshiba SSDs. PCs were crashing to the UEFI screen after reboot and users had to roll back to a previous build. Microsoft blocked the rollout to affected devices shortly after, but the damage had already been done.
Windows 10 Build 17134.81It appears the problem centered around ‘power regression' on systems with NVMe SSDs and has now been fixed. It also remedies a number of problems with internet explorer, timezones, and Windows Hello. Here's the full changelog:
