Share if your Windows 10 May 2020 Update (version 2004) is blocked

2004 blocked on my old HP desktop computer using onboard NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 hardware & nvidia 309.08 graphics driver [this was expected behavior by MS].

maybe I'll have to buy a newer nvidia graphics card (at least a GT/GTX 400 series or better like GT 430) that uses a compatible driver higher than v358

My work PC, which I kept on 1809 on purpose so as not to break any of the finicky work apps I use, got pushed to 1909 yesterday, so that's another PC which isn't getting 2004 at this point, along with my gaming PC.  I'll have to check my laptop later, that's on 1909 as well atm.

Ok, my gaming desktop finally got 2004, so that's one system down.

 

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19041.388]

Small little update since I've been using 2004 on my gaming PC, I could be just imagining things but apps, specially any of the default UWP ones, do open faster.  Actually I think much of the OS itself has improved performance compared to 1909.  They did quite a bit of core OS work going from 19xx to 20xx.

Hmm I doubt it, in fact since the update I have noticed quite a bit of stuttering in Quake Champions (via Steam) to the extent I have been hunting how to speed things up a bit. I am on the latest drivers and I disable/close apps and programs I don't need (like Chrome and so forth) before launching the game. I never had these problems with 1909.

Not a game I've played so I can't say if it's the game, the OS, drivers, or some mix of things.   I've been killing time playing Madden 20, yeah I know, but I miss football.  And it's running just as well as it did on 1909.    I'm about to drop it though and play something else, dunno what's up next from my backlog but maybe Watch Dogs 2 since I just got it for free.  We'll see how that one goes.

Still waiting, yes I am blocked via WU.

 

I'm guessing it might be because my motherboard has bluetooth?

NOPE. Mine has Bluetooth too but you can check if your Intel chipset (including bluetooth) is up to date here https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/intel-driver-support-assistant.html Wasn't there still a block in place for certain AMD setups?

The Samsung Series 7 DP700A3B ( DP700A3B-A02US ) is finally offered the update ... but I am afraid to install it due to the performance of the Microsoft Search in the shell. I hate that thing.

I've had an update block before due to a hardware dongle driver, but this computer was more or less a fresh install within the last two months (though using an older installation USB that I made). Given my prior experience, I can understand how a third-party may be responsible for delaying an update (TBH I would have been more ****ed if the update had gone through and then I couldn't use said equipment) but I also think that at least when their own devices are involved MS could be giving their customers more information about why the update is being blocked on the device.

Sorry I forgot to come back to the site for awhile.  I did in fact finally get the update maybe a week or so ago, which I thought was weird.  Updated, so far so good. 

 

It was a Ryzen system yes.

Yea, my desktop finally updated itself along with my el cheapo notebook which originally couldn't install it.  No issues with either.  Everything is now on 2004.
