    There are a lot of different AMD processors. Does this update apply to ALL of them? I thought I read that fixes were only being released for the more recent CPUs? Some of us have Win 10 running on quite old machines. It worked fine before the KB4056892 fiasco that caused us to have to do a clean install.

    With Win 10 home, presumably an automatic update will occur once MS sees fit? But I don't want that until we are 100% sure it will work. On Win10 Home, any way to block those updates?

    The only issue I see in your plan is the limits cellphone providers place on their subscriptions for data transfer. The .iso file or bootable USB drive can be big, 3.x GB to more than 4GB. This latest update is only 603MB for 64-bit only, not too bad. I've done 3 AMD Desktops today [1 Custom, 1 ASUS and 1 HP] and no problems.

    I downloaded and installed this KB4073290 on my 10 year old Athlon 64 X2 Socket AM2 machine and it worked fine. My computer was one of those which became unbootable after Windows Update tried to install KB4056892 on January's Patch Tuesday.

    I believe that this update is only available from the Microsoft Catalog (link on the first post of this thread), and will not be found by Windows Update, at least not until the next Cumulative Update is released in February, which will supersede this update.

    You should download and install this before unhiding KB4056892, or unpausing updates on Windows Update.

    Hope this helps,
    Dave.

    I'm going to ask a dumb question, but my computer is in a unbootable state right now, how can I install this update? I have been hit with the inaccessible boot device since last Thursday. (Have AMD CPU), but can't get into WIndows.
    I had another unbootable AMD PC yesterday. I was able to resurrect it by booting the w10 installation iso and using System Restore to December 29th 2017.

    This update is confusing. I've currently blocked/hidden KB4056892 on two AMD PCs otherwise this update makes them unbootable. One PC has a Socket 939 motherboard and the other an AM2 motherboard.

    Another post on the forum advises installing KB4073290 which overrides KB4056892 and WU should no longer find the offending KB4056892. MS should have clarified this in their release notes.

    No bad effects even if you do install on an Intel system though.

    I backed up then gave it a try. If anything my system seems a bit faster but that's probably a placebo effect :)
    +1 no issue with the updates on my Intel.

    No issues to report on AMD FX-8350, Phenom II 905E, Phenom II 1045T, or ancient Intel Core2Duo E8400 based systems.

    Thanks for the reply unfortunately, I didn't have system restore on, (my fault for that) I had originally got it back up after doing the DISM commands to remove the upadte, but when I wasn't paying attention for a few hours, it installed the update again. Then next reboot, got the error again. I removed package again, but now I am stuck in this restart loop.
