Windows 10 Spring Creators Update release date

When Microsoft postponed the Windows 10 April Update release, many users wondered what could have been the cause for this surprising decision. The company recently rolled out a new Windows 10 SCU build and offered more details as to why it delayed the OS release.

The culprit: BSOD errors

It is not at all surprising that a high BSOD error occurrence is the culprit for this delay, as Microsoft explains:

As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix. In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example.

Microsoft is currently testing a new build version and it could actually take a couple of weeks until Dona Sarkar’s team are happy with the end result. Microsoft needs to make absolutely sure that the final Windows 10 v1803 version is as stable and reliable as possible. Rolling out a buggy version would only trigger massive outcry from users.

Let us not forget that Windows 10 OS releases are usually plagued by a plethora of bugs. It seems that Microsoft has now changed its strategy and stopped rushing to get new OS versions out as soon as possible, choosing instead to focus on system stability.

Of course, this doesn’t mean there will be no BSOD errors on Windows 10 April Update. As a matter of fact, BSOD errors represent one of the most frequently encountered issues on Windows PC. Troubleshooting BSOD issues is not always an easy task. For this reason, we compiled a list of the most common BSOD errors affecting Windows 10 PC as well as their corresponding solutions:
