  1. Hardware incompatible with update but it's trying to force me to update anyway


    My computer is incompatible with recent windows 10 updates. I've not yet determined what exactly is incompatible yet.

    This wouldn't be a problem, if it weren't for the fact that windows 10 is continuously trying to update, realizing that it can't halfway through, and then undoing it's changes, which takes a solid hour or more in total every time.

    It's done this 3 times I'm aware of, and It doesn't seem smart enough to be aware of the fact it legitimately can't before retrying yet again or letting me tell it to just stop before it breaks something.

    I tried to use the "Pause Updates" toggle, thinking that would give me well enough time as it says 35 days~ of time without it trying, but less than a day later it did it again regardless and the "pause updates" toggle was back to off, which I didn't do.

    Now it's bugging me about needing to restart yet again, I've paused updates yet again, and I'm writing this post out.

    How can I legitimately disable updates, until after I can determine what is incompatible and why?

    Intel Readies P55 Chipset B3 Stepping Update

    Intel's is readying a hardware update for its P55 Express chipset, currently the only core-logic for the company's brand new socket LGA-1156 processor platform. The new B3 stepping of the P55 PCH will bring with it a little more than new MM number and S-spec numbers. A list of changes is as follows:
    • New MM number and S-spec numbers for the converted products;
    • Firmware and minor BIOS updates are required with the conversion;
    • Processor MRC/microcode update required to enable future processors;
    • Recommended storage driver upgrade from Intel MSM 8.9 to Intel RST 9.5.
    Although it is listed that the MRC update enables 'future processors', Intel, in a statement issued to X-bit labs assured that the current B2 stepping of the chipset (found on current socket LGA-1156 motherboards) does not leave out support for any of Intel's new LGA-1156 processors that are slated for release in the very near future. The dual-core "Clarkale" 32 nm processor will be supported by both B2 and B3 steppings of the chipset.

    P55 B3 stepping is pin-identical to P55 B2, and hence motherboard vendors will not have to come up with new designs. Sampling of the new stepping began as early as on October 02, 2009, and it is scheduled for shipment to manufacturers by the 7th of December, 2009. P55 is the performance core-logic for the LGA-1156 platform. It supports Core i5 and Core i7 "Lynnfield" processors with discrete graphics.
