As stated in the Title: Win10 20H2 2021-05 KB5003173 update on an x86 (32bit) version of Win 10 Pro. Needed x86 for some 16 bit apps. Edge Chromium is (was) working fine and has NEVER been removed.
Once the update is installed and the system restarted it boots up - ONCE.
IF the system is restarted or shutdown and cold booted - It hangs at the Blue Windows icon (No Dot circles).
The Automated Repair does NOTHING. So something introduced in the May update is preventing a full normal boot. It is NOT Edge related in this case.
Intel i7 3770K / Z77 chipset (ASUS P8Z77i - ITX), 256GB Samsung 860EVO SSD. Tried with both 4GB (2 x 2GB) and 8 GB (2 x 4GB) Ram (All tested good). Tested with both On-Board Intel GPU and NVidia GT630 GPU. No difference.
Everything works fine if the update is removed or re-imaged with April updates restored. Boot cycles work as expected until KB5003173 is installed.
Since this is a MANDATORY update can someone at MS look into this?
Will MS ever get their AI diagnostics testing to work or will users forever dread the monthly updates that are anything but 'Quality' ? :-P
