Microsoft last week stopped releasing the preview builds to PCs with AMD chipsets as the issue was causing AMD PCs to become unbootable. Microsoft is today rolling out a new Windows 10 Build 17074.1002 for Fast Ring Insiders and for those who opted in to Skip Ahead.

Windows 10 Build 17074 comes with no new features, improvements or major changes. The software giant is lifting a restriction that prevented AMD PCs from upgrading to builds as they were getting into an unbootable state.

With that being said, if you are using a PC with AMD chipset, you can finally download Windows 10 build 17074. It’s worth noting that the Meltdown and Spectre released earlier this month was causing a series of issues including BSODs on AMD PCs. After the controversy, Microsoft halted the rollout of patches for all AMD PCs.

“This build is the same as the version of Build 17074 released last week with 2 additional fixes. We have fixed the issue causing AMD PCs to become unbootable – which means we have removed the block for AMD PCs we put in place last week. And we also fixed the issue causing certain devices to hang on the boot screen after upgrading if virtualization is enabled in the BIOS,” Microsoft said.

The latest preview update improves Microsoft Edge browser with new Hub view, the company has improved the Hub View to show more content. Microsoft is also adding support for autofill cards on web forms to the browser, and the best part of this addition is that the browser would sync with Microsoft account to autofill cards detail for payments.
