To avoid problems during the Installation of windows 10 2020 updates, external hard drives and memory cards should be unplugged during installation, after users reported that external storage hardware might prevent the system from installing the update. If you do not unplug the external storage device, Windows Update may cause a system failure or incorrectly assign the drive letter.

Windows 10 updates also require a large chunk of space to complete the installation process, and it is important to note that Windows Update does not check if there is enough free space before starting the installation process, and if you don’t have enough free space, it will cause the update to fail, resulting in an unknown error code.

Intel and NVIDIA have already started rolling out new GPU drivers that support the latest updates to Windows 10, and for the best experience, make sure to download the latest GPU drivers from the manufacturer’s website.
