Its come to light that the latest fix to fix some secureity flaws namely Specture & Meltdown are having a detremental effect on AMD systems from some users reports found here.
It seems a number of AMD systems are becoming unbootable, unfair, its seems once again comminations have gone a miss somewhere and now Microsoft has had to halt the distribution of the Spectre & Meltdown fixes.
“Microsoft has reports of customers with some AMD devices getting into an unbootable state after installing recent Windows operating system security updates. After investigating, Microsoft has determined that some AMD chipsets do not conform to the documentation previously provided to Microsoft to develop the Windows operating system mitigations to protect against the chipset vulnerabilities known as Spectre and Meltdown.”
These are the updates that have been paused

Let’s hope Microsoft and AMD communicate a little better and fix this damn issue for there users. If you are already up the shitter, there is not much you can do apart from us sending you to the links below, or just reinstalling your OS and hoping it works.
