Despite limited availability, Microsoft is a little cautious about rolling out Windows 10 20H2 to all users. Microsoft has now revealed the company will continue to throttle up the availability of Windows 10 20H2 over the coming weeks. The software giant wants to provide Windows 10 users with a reliable download experience.
Windows 10 20H2 update rollout throttled
If you are looking to download and install Windows 10 20H2, the update may not be available to you right away. In the Windows 10 Health Dashboard, Microsoft had this to say:
“Windows 10, version 20H2 is available for users with devices running Windows 10, versions 1903 and higher who manually seek to “Check for updates” via Windows Update. The recommended servicing status is Semi-Annual Channel.”
“We are slowly throttling up availability over the coming weeks to ensure a reliable download experience. As a result, the update may not be offered to you right away.”
By the time the WIndows 10 October 2020 update gets ready for everyone, Microsoft would want to ensure the installation doesn’t create room for issues and bugs. As a result, Microsoft is taking things slow when rolling out the update for a reason.
At the time of writing this story, there are a couple of unresolved issues that Microsoft is currently investigating:
- Errors or issues during or after updating devices with certain Conexant audio drivers: Devices with affected Conexant or Synaptics audio drivers might receive a stop error with a blue screen.
- Errors or issues during or after updating devices with Conexant ISST audio drivers: Devices with affected Conexant ISST audio drivers might receive an error or have issues with Windows 10, version 2004.
