Microsoft is aware of the problem and is working to resolve it. The fix will be available by the end of November.

If you encounter an error while trying to update Windows 10 on your PC, you are not alone. Microsoft has launched an update to Windows 10 – Windows 10 version 20H2. However, an SSD compatibility issue seems to be preventing users from installing new updates. Microsoft is aware of the problem and is working on a solution that is expected to be released by the end of November.

On its support page, Microsoft says, “If you’re trying to update or install Windows 10, version 2004 or Windows 10, version 20H2, you may encounter an update compatible hold and get the message,” Your PC has hardware that ‘Windows 10 Not ready for this version of. Once this issue is resolved, Windows Update will automatically offer you this version of Windows 10. “

So what’s the problem? OK, it looks like there’s an incompatibility issue with Windows 10, version 2004 or Windows 10, version 20H2. This occurs when using Thunderbolt NVMe Solid State Disk (SSD).

When a Thunderbolt NVMe SSD is on a machine, users will receive a stop error with a blue screen during the update and an invalid DMA operation has been verified by the “DRIVER_VERIFIER_DMA_VIOLATION (e6) driver.”

According to Microsoft, “Infected Windows 10 devices will have at least one Thunderbolt port and the current available version of the driver file stornvme.sys.”

Microsoft added, “To protect your update experience, we’ve implemented a compatibility hold on Windows 10 devices, including drivers affected by Windows 10, version 2004 or Windows 10, version 20H2.”

It is recommended that you do not attempt to manually update your Windows machine if you encounter this error while updating. Microsoft is working to resolve the issue, which is expected to be released in late November.

The Windows 10 20H2 update also brings exciting changes and upgrades to the Edge browser, start menu, notifications, and more. You can check out everything that comes with the update here.
