    Odd. It should cover all of Windows 10,Windows 10 LTSB,Windows Server 2016 both 32-bit & 64-bit versions. I haven't installed it.

    Since updating my BIOS and receiving the newer microcode with Spectre mitigations I removed KB4090007 (OS level microcode update). I don't think KB4078407 applies to me and since it's optional I see no use for it.

    How do you know it hasn't run? All it does is remove the registry entry that disables spectre mitigation if it was present.

    ASUS is pushing out more BIOS updates to the Z170 motherboards:

    • Maximus VIII Extreme, Maximus VIII Gene, Maximus VIII Hero Alpha, Maximus VIII Impact: 3801
    • Maximus VIII Hero, Maximus VIII Ranger: 3802

    Still no Maximus VIII Formula.

    Already running it since this morning after doing a full format yesterday (and moving from my 850 evo to my new 960 PRO, naturally a few weeks after i pick it up, the 970 comes out :mad:) to fix a long standing issue with the windows indexing service i had. Installed 1701, then later on the day after checking updates a few times 1803 got pushed. Oh yeah and rocking the new bios too :)

    I woke up this morning and it was on my computer because I never turn my computer off so just updates by itself

    guess you were part of the "phased rollout" then ;). BTW you need to fix that registration info. ROG MAXIMUS VIII can mean just about any board under that header ;). Mine's registered to "Project Phoenix" :)

    I have no idea what the phased rollout is, but I just went down to my den and updated my spare rig also, it updated in the regular updates like my other rig.

    It means just like with any other major update the build gets pushed to PC's in PHASES :p EG: Phase 1, 10k random computers. No problems? Phase 2: 1 million new random PC's. Still no problems? Phase 3: Global rollout.

    1803 showed up on WU this morning. I let it update. My system updated and then ended up with a BSOD: 0xc1900101. System automatically rolled back to 1709 and I deferred feature updates for 365 days until I get around to being patient enough to troubleshoot.

    Code:

    Scroll down to "Driver error". That error you're getting seems to be specific to driver. Now you'll need to figure out which one. Maybe there's an upgrade attempt log somewhere that will tell you what the problematic one is.

    A stretch but maybe this will be of some assistance
