Windows 10 v1903 blocked on PCs with Qualcomm Wi-Fi drivers

Windows 10 v1903 came with a lot of changes, but also with a lot of problems.

Windows 10 users are experiencing different bugs since the release of the May update and until now. Some issues were solved by the tech giant through update patches, but not all of them.

Microsoft has issued a new upgrade block for Windows 10 May update

After a couple of upgrade blocks in the past, now it’s time for a new one. This time, Microsoft has blocked the Windows 10 v1903 roll-out for some PCs that use outdated Quoalcomm Wi-Fi drivers.

It seems like the drivers in question were causing some Wi-Fi connectivity issues on older PCs:

Some older computers may experience loss of Wi-Fi connectivity due to an outdated Qualcomm driver. An updated Wi-Fi driver should be available from your device manufacturer (OEM).
To safeguard your upgrade experience, we have applied a hold on devices with this Qualcomm driver from being offered Windows 10, version 1903, until the updated driver is installed.

Redmond has also advised users to update to the latest version of the driver and not to upgrade Windows manually through the Update now button or the Media Creation Tool.

After the Qualcomm driver has been updated, the Windows 10 v1903 should install just fine on the affected PCs.
