Re: [vfio-users] Issue with EDK2 upgrading Windows 10 to build 10586 ?

I am upgrading from Windows 10 Pro build 10240 to the build 10586. The
is retail install so can use my key as many times as I want on my
“hardware”

I would think that doing what Okky mentioned would work. There was an
issue about a half year ago with OVMF that gave a BSOD when trying to
install Windows 10 that looked kind of like this. The way to get
around it was to use a core2duo. Of course I could be very wrong about
what is causing the BSOD. Need to look deeper into it.
