There’s a new optional update for PCs with Windows 10 May 2019 Update and it advances the systems to Build 18362.329. Windows 10 KB4512941 comes with a long list of quality improvements, including fixes for a bug that broke Windows Sandbox and Remote Desktop connection.

It looks like Windows 10 Build 18362.329 has finally resolved a bug that was causing stability problems on PCs with older versions of Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) driver installed.

Microsoft originally noted that users trying to update to Windows 10 version 1903 might see a compatibility warning if the system has an outdated driver for Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST). And users who have manually installed Windows 10 May 2019 Update on PCs with outdated drivers could experience stability problems.

In a new update to its support page, Microsoft confirmed that the latest optional update resolves the bug with Intel’s rapid storage technology, but users trying to install Windows 10 May 2019 Update might still run into a “compatibility hold” if the system has certain versions of Intel driver installed.

Microsoft is apparently planning to remove the upgrade block on PCs with certain version of Intel RST drivers in early September.

The update, which resolves stability problems, can be downloaded from the Settings app and the Microsoft Update Catalog.

It’s also worth noting that some users are reporting abnormal CPU usage after applying the patch.¬†Microsoft has yet to acknowledge these installation issues, but several users have documented the issue on various forums, including the Feedback Hub.
