Windows 10 Update – New Cumulative KB3124263 Available Now

Crash your PC

Just click here – I know it is so tempting. BUT Do you trust what will happen next?
I did. And this is what happened….

– Don’t worry Microsoft will break it good this time. No SafeMode, no automatic repair, oh and SFC won’t help either. You’ll have to run that reset install and lose all of your programs. And I tried the bcdedit to force it back to WIndows 7 realm of safemode selection. bcdedit with legacy mode set- Did not help. Safemode was AWAL.

Yeah I tried this: bcdedit /set “{current}” bootmenupolicy legacy. And I got a text menu letting me select the Safemode – but it still did not boot me to a usable interface.

 bcdedit with legacy mode set – Did not help. Safemode was AWAL.
thread exception not handled windows 10
 
 

The command line – CLI – did work – But the oh so helpful BSOD error targeted no driver. hmm maybe it realy wasn’t a driver as I’m typing right now using the same PC post reset with the same drivers. Windows update your the blame.

Ugh. Windows 10 you have worked for me for 6 months. You haven’t failed yet. I don’t have an NVidia card and did not get a boot loop until today.
 
How about testing this thing first.
Oh right, I forgot. We clicked the ‘Yes I want Windows 10 Free – You may use me as a lab rat” button.

 

Microsoft – your days are numbered.

hmm, I guess the real story behind this mess is that I keep a few Home installs of Windows 10 around to play a bit closer to the fire than the Pro versions. These windows 10 home installs get updates sooner to “test” them for the businesses that eventually rely on it. The same businesses I work to support. So in the end I will have experienced first hand the mess Microsoft creates before it impacts my customers.
