Microsoft recently started rolling out a new build 17074.1002 for the Windows insiders on the Slow Ring. The new build for Slow Ring Insiders is a big update as it comes with new features in Microsoft Edge, Cortana and more.

Windows 10 Build 17074.1002 fixes the boot issues on AMD powered PCs and also adds a couple of new features to the operating system. The update also fixes the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities in chipsets manufactured by Intel, AMD and ARM.

“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,” Microsoft explains.

With the latest preview update, Microsoft is improving Quiet Hours settings, the system will turn on automatically when playing a full-screen exclusive DirectX game. Microsoft has also added a page that shows you the notification that you missed while your PC was in Quiet Hours. You can the read full changelog of build 17074 here.

Windows 10 Redstone 4 is set to arrive in April on the Production Ring, after getting finalized in March. However, Microsoft still needs to fix the bugs in Windows 10 version 1803 aka Redstone 4 update before the production release. Just like the Fall Creators Update, Windows 10 Redstone 4 update will be rolling out in stages to avoid any hardware compatibility issues.
