Microsoft has removed three upgrade blocks from the list of issues affecting the company's Windows 10 OS 1903 upgrades.
We noted in the article yesterday that users are facing new issues that Microsoft has not officially confirmed at this time, though they seemed widespread enough to guarantee at least a bug tracking entry.
Microsoft has confirmed two new questions on July 12, 2019, which the company believes are serious enough to block the machines affected by these problems from upgrading to Windows 10 version 1903.
One problem concerns Surface Book 2 devices only, and the other confirms the problem with the Remote Desktop black screen.
Publishing a Surface Book 2
Microsoft has confirmed a problem affecting Surface Book 2 devices that cause some of the device's intensive graphics operations after upgrading to Windows 10 version 1903
Sometimes dGPU may disappear from the Surface Book 2 Device Manager with dGPU
Microsoft identified a compatibility issue with some Surface Book 2 devices configured with Nvidia Discrete Graphics Processing Unit (dGPU). After updating to Window 10, version 1903 (feature update for May 2019), some apps or games that need to perform intensive graphical operations may close or not open.
Microsoft offers administrators who have upgraded Windows 9 Surface Book 2 on Windows 10 version 1903 to restart the device when this happens or to manually scan for hardware changes in the device manager.
Problem with the black screen on the remote desktop
The second confirmed issue concerns devices with some embedded graphics processors from the Intel 4 Series Chips that have established remote connections. The problem may arise with any device that initiates the remote connection and users may notice that the screen remains black after the connection is established.
Initiating a connection to a remote desktop can result in a black screen
When you initiate a remote desktop connection with devices with some older GPU drivers, you may get a black screen. Each version of Windows may encounter this problem when initiating a remote desktop connection to a Windows 10, 1903 device that works with a affected display driver, including Intel iGPU 4 Series Embedded Graphics Processor drivers, .
Microsoft did not offer a solution to the problem at the time, but Gunther Bourn published a solution on its site a few hours ago, which could solve the problem.
In addition to upgrading the graphics driver for affected devices, Born offers administrators the ability to prohibit the use of the WDDM desktop display driver for remote desktop connections in group policies that are located under Windows Components> Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Host> Remote session environment.
Now you: Are you affected by these problems?
