    The release of the April 2018 Update for Windows 10 was not as error-free as Microsoft hoped it would be. Reports about blue screens, crashes, upgrade rollbacks and other issues started to appear on Microsoft's official support forum but also on other sites on the Internet after the official release of the operating system on April 30, 2018.

    Microsoft confirmed shortly thereafter that devices with "some" Intel Solid State Drives were not compatible with the new version of Windows 10.

    The company revised the information on May 8, 2018 when it revealed that devices with Intel SSD 600p Series and Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series were affected.

    When attempting to upgrade to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, select devices with Intel SSD 600p Series or Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series may crash and enter a UEFI screen after reboot.

    Microsoft is working with OEM partners and Intel to identify and block devices with Intel SSD 600p Series or Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series from installing the April 2018 Update due to a know incompatibility that may cause performance and stability issues. If you have encountered this issue, follow the steps to reinstall the previous operating system (Windows 10, version 1709).

    Microsoft is currently working on a resolution that will allow the April 2018 Update on these devices in the near future.

    Microsoft's hardware division used drives of Intel's 6000P Pro series in some of its Surface 2017 devices.
