AMD Chips Now Cleared for Updating
Microsoft has now prepared a fixed update that won’t BSOD computers running the AMD chip set and thus have begun to rerelease the update. If you were impacted by the AMD BSOD, hopefully you have a second computer handy as you need to download KB4073290 from the Microsoft catalog site and then … well I’m honestly not sure what you can do if the machine in question has a BSOD and won’t boot. The only way I’m aware to install a patch on an un-bootable machine is to use the DISM commands at a boot prompt to install the update.
You would type in
Dism /Add-Package /PackagePath: [/IgnoreCheck] [/PreventPending] and insert the location where you downloaded the
I honestly think it’s easier and safer to perform a system refresh whereby the Windows 10 reinstalls the operating system but does not damage any data files.
I’d honestly recommend that you download and create a windows 10 bootable image flash drive so that should something happen — for any reason — you have the tools at hand to take care of your machine. I would suggest going to this link, and create a Windows installation media and keep it on hand.
Once you have a bootable flash drive, you then insert the flash drive into your computer before you turn it on and if the bios is set to boot first from a usb flash drive you can get under the operating system and run the necessary steps to repair from any disaster. The basic guidance to follow is documented on a Microsoft page.
