Upgrade to Windows 10 version 1903 may cause boot error on Windows 10 with ESET Endpoint Encryption

Recommended Posts

We have identified a problem when upgrading a Windows 10 system with ESET Endpoint Encryption installed to the 1903 feature update. Installing the update can cause the system to crash (blue screen) when booting.

We are currently investigating the cause and recommend not upgrading an encrypted system to 1903 until further notice.

Systems that have been affected will need to be decrypted using our recovery tool (if full disk encryption was enabled) and then repaired using the Windows recovery console. See this knowledgebase article for more details: https://support.eset.com/kb7309/

Windows 10 1903 is starting to roll out - will upgrading be blocked if you have ESET Endpoint Encryption installed?
As far as I know this can be requested at Microsoft :D - don't know where though

Hi,
What's up ? Have you released a new version of ESET Deslock that is compatible with this update?
Been a long time without updating, especially at the security level ...

Thank you

When will it be possible to safely install the 1903 update?

Microsoft is going to block upgrade if ESET Endpoint Encryption is detected as a preventive measure until thet address an issue in the update caused by CleanMgr which accidentally deletes the FDE driver after upgrade but leaving it registered in the Upper Filter storage stack. The bug started to manifest in build 18343 and any newer builds are currently affected as well.

Is there any further updates on when this issue is going to be resolved, can we get a timeline?

Cause

Due to changes Microsoft have made to Windows Feature update installations, upgrading machines to 1903 can cause systems to become unbootable. This is due to Windows 1903 performing a background clean-up task that removes the Full Disk Encryption (FDE) driver that ESET Endpoint Encryption (EEE) uses.

After working with Microsoft, they have now implemented a block to prevent the Windows 1903 update from installing on systems that are running an older version of EEE (pre v5.0.3). For more information regarding this block, please see the following article:

ESET Endpoint Encryption 5.0.3 is fully compatible with Windows 10 update 1903.

FWIW - I still got a BSOD after upgrading to 5.0.3 before doing the windows 10 update.

Your repair .bat mostly worked - I didn't have a /dlpcore/upgrade/amd or /i386 folder, but the .sys was just in the 'upgrade' folder, so manually copying that to /system32/drivers/ fixed the problem.

Is this going to happen again with another update?  I'm looking at the machine now and confirmed it's ESET 5.0.3
