Windows 10 v2004: your device isn't ready

HP Recommended
elitebook 745 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Seeing the image below when I check for windows updates on my HP Elitebook 745 G5 running Windows 10 Pro with the latest firmware.  The betas for v2004 have been floating around for a while, so surprised it isn't ready to go from a driver perspective.  I know I can force the update using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool, but given MS doesn't think updating is a good idea, I'm reluctant to do so.  Guessing HP hasn't verified the drivers for v2004 yet?

Hello @qhaas 

 

Thank you for posting in the HP Support Community.

 

This is a new feature upgrade in Windows and it is not always the PC vendor to blame. There can be tons of reasons for this update not to be ready for your computer. Note that this is not important or security related update.

 

Given the Microsoft history with literally any Win 10 feature upgprade/update and given the fact that on a business class machine stability is mostly required, I would recommend that you wait and do not rush to install any new feature upgrade unless you are a tester or enthusiast willing to accept risks of installing new fresh software.

 

You can defer updates (upgrades) to ensure these updates receive more testing and more QA before they make it to your PCs. Enabling the “Defer upgrades” gives you more stability and less surprises.

 

if there are any problems with the update, they should be found and fixed by the time they become mandatory on Windows 10 Professional.

Hope this helps.

Your feedback and update are important.

As @IT_WinSec indicated, this is a new feature, started in Win10 v2004, in which MS informs folks that their PC is a victim of an Update Block they have imposed.  This is MS's doing and has nothing whatsoever to do with HP.

 

Advice on the leading Win10 forums is NOT to force a workaround to this by using the MCT or Win10 media -- as that can lead to a PC that will not boot or fails in other ways.

 

If you want details on these issues, read this from MS:  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-2004
