It's Friday and there are enough tales of woe below the fold to reassure you the world didn't completely change while you slept, but let's lede with some good news. Owners of the two SSDs from Intel which proved incompatible with the latest version of Windows 10, and likely the trio of Toshiba as well should look forward to KB4100403. You can force it today, or wait for the proper patch Tuesday and let some other poor suckers play canary but in theory you should now be able to enjoy the April Update if you so desire.
The Register couldn't get the details of what was fixed from Microsoft but they do provide a link to the update here.
"A chink of light has appeared in the wall of Windows 10 update woes in the form of a patch that should address the SSD problems plaguing the OS."

This is just weird. What is
This is just weird. What is the big difference in these SSDs that makes them incompatible? Some Toshiba SSD owners also reported similar problems. I would love to hear how Microsoft screwed this up.
Total lack of QA/QC and
Total lack of QA/QC and regression testing from the Folks in Redmond and that eternal BETA OS Known as Windows 10.
But that Patch-Patching-of-Borked-Patches(TM) also affects all of Redmond’s OS products on a damn regular basis.
