Don’t rush to install Creators Update for Windows 10

Microsoft advises non-tech users not to download and install Creators Update for Windows 10 manually since this update might break your machine. The largest update for Windows 10 “Creators Update” was released three weeks ago, but because it was primarily done for newer machines it could cause problems for machines with an older hardware.

Microsoft instead suggests you to wait for the update to be automatically offered for your computer when it’s ready. Microsoft also said that they have prepared the upgrade for newer hardware machines since that hardware is less likely to run into problems with the update.

Apparently, one of the problems reported was related to some types of Broadcom Bluetooth LE radios as the update was killing the connections with accessories.

“We continue to recommend (unless you’re an advanced user who is prepared to work through some issues) that you wait until the Windows 10 Update is automatically offered to you,” said John Cable, director of program management for Windows servicing and delivery.

“When your device becomes eligible for the Creators Update rollout, you’ll be prompted to make some important choices on your privacy settings before the Creators Update can install.”

So far, only 10 percent of Windows 10 users have upgraded to the latest “Creators Update” release, but those are mostly targeted for Microsoft Hardware, like Surface machines.
