Microsoft releases Windows Server 2019 Insider and Windows 10 SDK build 17666

Just weeks after the rollout of the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, a number of bugs have been reported, most recently for devices with Toshiba solid state disk (SSD) drives, Windows said in a Community blog post.

The update is addressed only for Windows 10 version 1803 and Windows Server version 1803 releases, also known as the April 2018 Update.

As a result, Microsoft says it's working with Toshiba and hardware manufacturers to block devices running these SSDs from installing the April 2018 Update.

Lonnie_L noted that a fix for the issues is set for early June. The quickest way to block all Windows 7 updates is to go Control Panel System & Security Windows Update.

As always, we've gone hands on with the new build to showcase all the noteworthy new changes you can find in build 17666, in case you're someone who doesn't want to install pre-release versions of Windows 10 onto your device for testing. The ability to share content between Android / iOS devices and Windows 10 devices, however, doesn't come as a surprise since Microsoft had hinted during the internal testing phase at the end of the previous year that it will be extended to mobile operating systems.

These blocks will stay in place until Microsoft has resolved the incompatibility issue with the drives, and then users will get the green light to install the update. Microsoft is presently investigating and will provide a status update when the investigation is complete. However, they can't share content from Windows 10 devices to their Android handset - a feature that is expected to arrive soon.
