Microsoft lifts 3 Windows 10 1903 upgrade blocks

Microsoft has removed 3 of the many Windows 10 1903 upgrade blocks. Certain blocks were put in place to stop machines from upgrading when incompatible hardware/drivers were found on the system so that pc could still be usable.

The first fix was triggering loss of functionality in the Dynabook Smartphone Link app after installing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update. This update would have caused issues when trying to answer phone calls through the pc. The second fix was an audio loss on computers with free Dolby Atmos for home theater extension or paid Dolby Atmos for headphones extension "acquired through the Microsoft Store due to a licensing configuration error". The third issue which would throw a 'This PC can't be upgraded to Windows 10' error when trying to update Windows with internal hard drives, external USB devices, or memory cards attached was also resolved today by Redmond. This was caused by incorrect drive reassignment during the system installation process.

There are still 5 upgrade blocks in place so users don't have performance issues from installing the update. They are the following.

Unable to discover or connect to Bluetooth devices
Display brightness may not respond to adjustments
Intel Audio displays an intcdaud.sys notification
Cannot launch Camera app
Intermittent loss of Wi-Fi connectivity
