MSI and Microsoft Collaborate to Fix Blue Screen of Death Issue

Microsoft

If you’ve been plagued by the notorious Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) on your PC, fret no more! MSI and Microsoft have come to the rescue with a fix for the issue. Following a recent Windows Update, many users began experiencing the frustrating problem and were unable to boot up their computers. Thankfully, the root cause has been identified and a solution has been found.

The problem first surfaced last month after the installation of the KB5029351 Windows Update. Users started encountering blue screens with the error code “UNSUPPORTED_PROCESSOR.” Even after attempting to restart their PCs, the blue screen would persist, rendering their devices completely unbootable. While the update would eventually uninstall itself, this clearly indicated a lingering issue that needed to be addressed.

MSI and Microsoft have been working closely together over the past few weeks to investigate the BSOD problem. Their investigation led them to Intel’s 13th-Gen processors, specifically the high-end i9 series like the Core i9-13900K. Furthermore, this issue only affected users running specific versions of Windows 11 and Windows 10.

However, the Windows Update is not the sole culprit here. MSI has been releasing BIOS updates for its motherboards in preparation for Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake refresh. Somehow, these updates combined with Intel’s hybrid architecture to create the perfect storm that caused the BSOD loop for some users.

If you’ve been experiencing this problem, the best solution is to visit MSI’s official website and download the BIOS update for your motherboard. MSI provides a helpful guide on how to flash the BIOS, and you can also find additional assistance in our tutorial.

It’s important to note that only users with Intel 700 and 600 series motherboards encounter this particular issue. If you have an older system, there’s no need to worry. However, if you own one of MSI’s top-of-the-line motherboards and your specific model is not listed yet, you may need to wait for future updates to be rolled out throughout the month. In the meantime, you can use a temporary workaround by reverting to an older version of Windows Update or using an older version of MSI’s BIOS to prevent the occurrence of blue screens.

With the collaboration between MSI and Microsoft, PC users can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that a fix is available for the BSOD problem. So, if you’ve been battling the Blue Screen of Death lately, take heart and follow the recommended steps to resolve the issue. Happy computing!
