Windows 11 users have run into hassle with the most recent patch for the OS going by some studies, and that features nasty boot loops.
As famous, the worst concern right here is studies of individuals making an attempt to put in the replace and getting caught in a boot loop, which means that their PC retains failing throughout set up, rebooting, failing once more, rebooting, and so forth.
One Redditor reports: “I’ve tried putting in this replace twice now, just for it to get caught in an infinite boot loop. It stored attending to 95% and restarting, then would attempt once more. Now it simply offers me the ‘One thing didn’t go as deliberate. No want to fret – undoing modifications’ message earlier than going again into the infinite reboot. At the very least I can do a System Restore.”
One other Windows 11 person replies to that submit observing that they hit just a few boot loops earlier than their system rolled again the replace – and that it was the identical case with this replace in preview (launched in late October), noting that ultimately they “received to the purpose the laptop computer wouldn’t boot” with that check replace.
Ouch certainly, although that was the preview model, so hopefully any hazard of getting to reinstall Home windows – which is what this person ended up doing – will now have been eliminated with the ultimate launch.
For sure, the person in query isn’t persevering with to attempt to set up the replace, which actually looks as if a wise precaution.
There are 4 studies of this downside in that Reddit thread, and plainly the boot loop isn’t an infinite one, and the system pulls itself out of the loop after just a few fails – a minimum of for most people anyway.
One other downside that’s bugging (actually) some Home windows 11 customers is disappearing icons on the taskbar.
Both the icons are vanishing – although the performance continues to be current if you happen to click on the clean house on the bar – or there are studies of them being displaced by one, which means that the icon for, say, Phrase will open Microsoft’s Edge browser (the icon subsequent to it). Complicated, to say the least.
Evaluation: Curious case of the invisible icons
The lacking icons downside was launched with Second 4 (which ushered in all of the new features that have come to Windows 11 lately, including Copilot). So, it has been hanging round for some time, and actually annoying those that have encountered it – seemingly a good few folks judging from studies.
The excellent news is that Microsoft has truly mounted this glitch within the Canary preview construct of Home windows 11, so hopefully, the answer needs to be coming by testing quickly sufficient to succeed in the discharge model of Home windows 11.
Microsoft hasn’t stated something about boot loops, however there are far fewer studies of this from what we will see. Nonetheless, it’s a nasty downside, although as famous generally, it appears the looping will solely run just a few occasions earlier than the system corrects itself and comes again to the desktop. (Nonetheless leaving the person unable to put in the replace, thoughts, in order that’s not nice in fact).
It’s price remembering that Microsoft itself has flagged up some identified points with the patch, together with a bug whereby these with a number of displays would possibly see desktop icons shift between one show to a different unprompted (or different icon alignment weirdness) when utilizing Copilot. The software program big has pulled the AI assistant from these PCs, so if you happen to aren’t seeing Copilot any longer on a multi-screen setup, that’s why. A repair is being labored on as we sort this.
