This year might have been a year full of Windows bugs and issues for Windows 10 users. We have been regularly receiving news about security issues in the Windows operating system that has been exposed for a long time. Also, many new Windows updates this year have caused the Windows operating system to malfunction. It seems that this year is still going to see a lot more of such issues before the year-end. A recent update from Microsoft Windows 10, version 20H2, was released last month, but many users were unable to install it on their system due to the SSD compatibility issue.
The error that comes up on the system is “Your PC has hardware that isn’t ready for this version of Windows 10. Windows Update will automatically offer you this version of Windows 10 once the issue has been resolved.” The problem is mainly common for people with Thunderbolt NVMe SSD and the currently available version of the stornvme.sys driver file. As per the official statement from Microsoft, “On affected devices, when plugging in a Thunderbolt NVMe SSD you might receive a stop error with a blue screen and ‘DRIVER_VERIFIER_DMA_VIOLATION (e6) An illegal DMA operation was attempted by a driver being verified’.
For now, it is not recommended for users with Thunderbolt NVMe SSDs to update their Windows operating system. Also, since Microsoft is already working on the issue, the resolution for the same can be expected to arrive by the end of November month. Till the time the patch has been released, one should not download and install the Windows update.
