Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20152 issues

It’s been only a week since the last Insider Preview Build and we welcome a new one, Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20152 in the Dev Channel (Fast ring).

Although the new Windows 10 update comes to solve some problems, it also comes with a lot of known issues and no new features.

What is new in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20152?

There are 4 fixes coming with the new Insider Preview Build 20152:

  • Until now, if you tried to reset your computer, the system was removing Notepad.  Microsoft apparently solved that issue and they recommend that if you’re facing the situation to reinstall Notepad via Optional Features in Settings.
  • They also fixed an issue where the Continue button after the Windows needs space to continue dialog didn’t show up.
  • Apparently, sometimes, the Windows Update icon was not showing up in the taskbar notification area when an update was ready for a reboot. They also fixed that issue.
  • They also fixed a bug from IME. Now, IMEs will show the correct typing status (ON or OFF) and the IME mode indicator from taskbar is working fine now.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20152 has plenty of known issues

Unfortunately, there are still a lot of known issues coming with Insider Preview Build 20152 but that is expected from a Dev Channel preview build.

Let’s see some of the more important ones:

  • Some systems to crash with a HYPERVISOR_ERROR bugcheck.
  • For some, the update to a new build is taking a lot of time.
  • Sometimes, Notepad doesn’t reopen files that were automatically saved during a PC restart. However, you can still recover your documents from %localappdata%\Notepad.

Don’t install Insider Build 20152 if you have an Xbox controller

Just after the release of the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20152, we’ve recorded cases of users who experienced this issue.

Apparently, a user got a BSoD referencing xinputhid.sys when he turned his controller on just after installing the new update.

Looks like the Xbox 1 wireless driver is borked with this update. I get a blue screen referencing xinputhid.sys whenever I turn my controller on. Oof.

So if you really want to use your Xbox controller, don’t install the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 20152.

What can I do to avoid the BSoD error after installing Insider Build 20152?

If you care more about the new update, then make sure you disconnect your Xbox controller from your computer and leave things like that until the new update.

Otherwise, you may be triggering the BSoD with the error code 0xc1900101.
