Windows 10 v2004 isn’t yet ready to support all Windows 10 devices. Many Windows 10 users trying to install the update have vented their frustration on Reddit and other social media platforms that Windows 10 2004 update wouldn’t install on their PC due to some hardware compatibility issues.
We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t quite ready for it
In a message displayed on the Windows 10 update page for some users, Microsoft has acknowledged that Windows 10 2004 isn’t quite ready to support all Windows 10 compatible devices due to some reasons:
“The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is on its way. We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t quite ready for it. Once your device is ready, you’ll see the update available on this page. There’s nothing you need to do at this time.”
The message doesn’t reveal much as to how Windows 10 determines the device’s compatibility for the May 2020 update or what needs to fixed.
According to Microsoft, Windows 10 2004 is available for users with devices running Windows 10 1903 and 1909 who manually seek to “Check for updates” via Windows Update.
Another possibility could be incompatible drivers. One Reddit user said:
“It means that you have a driver that isn’t updateable yet because the manufacturer hasn’t passed it to Microsoft.”
One user complained that Windows 10 May 2020 Update failed to install on their device running Ryzen 3700X, RTX 2080, and 16GB of RAM.
Meanwhile, Intel gaming drivers are no longer entitled to OEM approvals, making the driver upgrade process much easier. Earlier, Intel gaming drivers were subject to OEM approvals, which would delay the driver upgrade process to a significant extent.
Starting this week, Windows 10 May 2020 Update became available for users via Microsoft using the Update Assistant or Media Creation Tool. Other ways to try the update are via the Release Preview ring of the Windows Insider Program, MSDN, or the Update Assistant.
Windows 10 May 2020 Update is also phasing out 32-bit PC support for the operating system. As a result, new and upcoming Windows 10 computers will be able to run 64-bit Windows 10 only.
