Microsoft fixes the Windows 10 May 2020 Update for Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3

When Microsoft released the Windows 10 May 2020 Update last week, there were still a whole bunch of known issues. Among them was an issue that caused unexpected restarts for devices that have more than one Always On, Always Connected network adapter. Microsoft today marked that issue as mitigated on its known issues page.

The fix rolled out as part of today's round of Patch Tuesday updates, so if you're on build 19041.329, you've got the fix. Of course, if your machine was susceptible to the issue, you were likely never offered the update in the first place, since there was a compatibility hold.

Unfortunately, that hold still isn't being lifted, so if you're on Windows 10 version 1909, you still won't see version 2004 in Windows Update. The safeguard hold is set to be removed in the coming weeks. It's unclear why it's going to take so long, although one possible reason could be that the company wants to send out the fix for a while before removing the block. Another possible reason is that it will take time to fold the patch into the main upgrade image.

The two PCs that Microsoft called out as being affected were its own, the Surface Laptop 3 and Surface Pro 7. So if you've got one of Microsoft's newest PCs and you were blocked from installing the update, you should be good to go soon.
