Windows Insiders play a critical role in ensuring that Microsoft releases high-quality software that caters to the requirements of all users. But their utility to the program suffers when a preview build causes some of their machines or system services to act up.
Microsoft’s latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build addresses a couple of such issues.
Build 19569 solves OneDrive malfunction
OneDrive should not be a CPU-intensive application. After all, it is a hard drive on the internet that does not rely a lot on your machine’s processing power.
Nonetheless, a Windows upgrade error may cause the cloud storage service to demand more computing power than necessary. Some insiders discovered that after installing the previous build, but Microsoft has already addressed the problem.
We fixed an issue resulting in OneDrive not working and using an unexpectedly high amount of CPU for some Insiders on the previous build.
Incompatibility with third-party virtual machines (VMs)
It is not unusual for a Windows 10 update to fail because it is incompatible with an existing driver. That was the case when some insiders upgraded their OS only for SCSI drivers to malfunction.
As a result, some third-party VMs failed to work. The latest preview build has fixed that problem.
Still, it appears that Microsoft has not quite got on top of the driver incompatibility situation that its preview builds are causing. As such, other devices besides VMs may still be affected. The company is looking into the problem, though.
The green screen of death (GSOD)
Most PC users do not associate the GSOD issue with Windows. But some recent Windows 10 builds have been causing this error, which prevents their PCs from booting.
Driver or device incompatibility may cause the GSOD error. If you ever encounter the Windows 10 malfunction, here is a guide to some practical solutions.
Start menu flaw
Microsoft has also fixed a Start menu problem that affected some insiders after upgrading their OS.
New Windows 10 icons
New colorful app icons are probably the most conspicuous feature that Build 19569.1000 introduced to Windows 10. Insiders in the First ring can test the new icon designs, which Microsoft will be rolling out over time.
