One of the biggest complaints that users have in Windows 10 operating system since it was released is updates. The problem is that they can’t be rejected or ignore after all the massive ransomeware attacks . Although Microsoft has killed the Automatic Windows 10 updates, the operating system keeps on receiving updates which consume lots of data and you cannot turn it off.
It turned out to be a headache for the users who have limited data connections. You will be shocked to know that in the latest development related to Windows 10 Updates, Microsoft is ending support for some windows 10 computers.
According to the reports from ZDNet, the computers sold in between 2013 and 2014 are showing a message that reads “Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC, Uninstall this app now because it isn’t compatible with Windows 10”. The error occurs when users are trying to install Windows 10 creators update, which was published in March 2017.
If you are facing this type of issues, then there’s no app which you can uninstall and there are no fixes that you can apply to install the Windows 10 creator updates. This is all happening because users are running devices on Intel Atom Clover Trail Processors which is almost 4-5 years old.
According to the reports from ZDNet, these are the Intel Clover Trail Processors affected by the issue:
- Atom Z2760
- Atom Z2520
- Atom Z2560
- Atom Z2580
Users who are running these processors are facing issue while downloading Creators updates. According to Microsoft’s service terms, the company supports major Windows 10 releases for at least 18 months. So, it looks like users running these processors will not get latest Windows 10 security updates.
But, there is a little hope that hints that the issue might get resolved. The problem was already posted in Technet forum where a moderator had said “Microsoft is working with our partners to provide compatible drivers for these processors. Until then, Windows Update will prevent devices containing one of the processors listed above from installing the Creators Update.”
Right now, there are only two options available for Intel Atom Clover Trail CPU users, either to ditch Windows 10 or buy a new device. This might be a bad news for them and for us also who use old computers for daily use.
