Windows 10 May 2019 Update is a hot topic these days but unfortunately not because of positive reasons. Windows 10 users are dealing with a bundle of issues since after the company released the update to the general public.

That is why Microsoft was forced to place an upgrade block on certain devices.

Microsoft blamed AMD RAID drivers for blocking the update on most systems. Microsoft stated some other potential reasons that can block Windows 10 version 1903 on your system.

BattlEye compatibility bugs

The tech giant blocked Windows 10 May 2019 Update on devices that are running incompatible or outdated BattlEye software versions.

However, Microsoft encourages its users to install the latest version of BattlEye software. Alternatively, you can resolve the compatibility issues by trying any of the following solutions.

First, install the latest version of your favorite games and BattlEye software on your system, remove the BattlEye software from your game, close and launch your game again, or reboot your system and launch the game again.

AMD RAID driver incompatibility issues

Microsoft confirmed the fact that the upgrade block is in place for such PCs that have some specific AMD RAID drivers versions. Microsoft says that if you go for a manual download, the update can cause some serious stability issues on your device.

However, it should be noted that the bug is only affecting devices with AMD RAID drivers (older than version).  The tech giant recommended its users to update their drivers.

Microsoft strongly discourages the use of the Update Assistant tool or Media Creation Tool because it can potentially lead to issues.

Intel display drivers compatibility issues

We have already reported about this bug, Microsoft acknowledged the fact that Windows 10 May 2019 Update messes up some Intel display drivers.

The company says that Windows 10 users are forced the restart their systems to change display brightness.

The Redmond giant also placed an upgrade block for the affected PCs. Therefore, you may need to visit Intel’s website to change your incompatible Intel display drivers.

SD cards or USB storage devices

Finally, Microsoft warns its users that systems with external SD cards or USB storage devices plugged in during the update install can experience failed installation.

Furthermore, Microsoft blocked the Windows 10 May 2019 Update on such systems. The USB drive can simply block the installation of the update.
