Home » News » Intel SSD 600p, Pro 6000p Series crash on Windows 10 April Update

Microsoft blocked the Windows 10 April Update on some Intel SSDs shortly after release due to frequent crashes and reboot loops. In a recent forum post, the Redmond giant recently revealed which Intel SSD models are affected by this problem. Intel SSD 600p Series and Intel SSD Pro 6000p Series are the SDDs in question but Microsoft promised it would soon push a hotfix to solve this problem.

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).

Solving this compatibility issues requires a lot of hard work since Microsoft needs to work closely with Intel to identify and fix the problem. The company didn’t reveal which components triggered this problem, it might well be the storage mechanisms or other sub-segments. Most likely, the hotfix will land on June Patch Tuesday.

If you already installed the Windows 10 April Update on your Intel SSD-powered computers, the best solution is to uninstall the update and use a restore point to revert to a previous OS version.
