Why you must not force-install the Windows 10 Creators Update?

While the Windows 10 Creators Update rolls out ahead with early access, Microsoft officially started sending out the Windows 10 Creators Update to PCs on April 11, but advanced users got Windows 10 Creators Update on April 5, about a week before the date.

And Microsoft gave April 25 as the date when the Windows 10 Creators Update will begin rolling out to Windows phones.

Albeit, the company would prefer if users didn't try to force-install the Windows 10 Creators Update. Instead, it's encouraging everyone but advanced users to wait for the Creators Update to become available via Windows Update.

The reason for the warnings according to Microsoft, is that it wants to iron out any issues for specific hardware configurations before making the upgrade available to PCs via Windows Update.

It hopes to achieve this using the feedback mechanisms in Windows Insider builds, as well as general feedback from users currently running the Creators Update.

Microsoft cited an issue as an example with certain Broadcom bluetooth radios that are having connectivity problems. And the company has temporarily blocked anyone else with the same radio from getting the Creators Update over Windows Update.

Also the Anniversary Update had several issues in the early days, like Kindle devices triggering the dreaded BSOD, broken webcams, and the rather infamous freezing problem.

The Creators Update is perhaps Microsoft’s best Windows 10 update yet, as such many users want the new update as quickly as they can get it, but need not to risk crashes or other bugs on their machines.
