    Hi,

    Brilliant. Thank you @Ground Sloth.

    Can't help but wonder how MS is going to solve this for Win To Go drives ? Install all patches for all CPU's ??

    Will we always have to download this very same file which will get updated with more CPUs or will there be a different KB file for every other CPU as they get supported and added (eg. kb4090007 for skylake, kb4090008 for kaby lake, kb4090009 for ivy bridge and so on)?

    It looks like additional CPU microcode updates will be added to KB4090007. But for some reason the original version of KB4090007 is still available on the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    If I got this right, MS said they will update this KB (4090007) with other CPU uCodes as they become available. Their exact words are "We will offer additional microcode updates from Intel thru this KB Article for these Operating Systems as they become available to Microsoft."

    does this mean that we'll have to check this KB every now and then to see if MS added new/other CPUs? Will we always have to download this very same file which will get updated with more CPUs or will there be a different KB file for every other CPU as they get supported and added (eg. kb4090007 for skylake, kb4090008 for kaby lake, kb4090009 for ivy bridge and so on)?

    The 1 MB MSU file download links for KB4090007 on the first post are for the newer March 13th version with the new included microcode updates.

    Very bizarre that this is not handled through WU where the exact System CPU can be checked against an updated KB and when finally the microcode update is available for the platform installed automatically and without delay for Intel has long released microcode updates for a lot more CPU's than Microsoft have incorporated in the two releases so far.

    All in all I don't think it's that bizarre at all. You need to disconnect yourself from your own personal position and look at the bigger picture., the industry etc.
    I must say I very much admire MS for taking over OEM's responsibility to update oldish devices. Quite clever and wise decisions I reckon.

    That said, I can undertand people with older CPU's wanting a fix but frankly folks, the chance of being hit is smaller than winning the lottery. So, be patient...
