“We are currently investigating whether Microsoft is causing this issue. We will announce details as more information becomes available.says a Microsoft post that appeared in Windows Health Center.

According to the source, the mentioned error occurs after installing the update on computers with certain models of MSI motherboards. For example, an update results in a BSOD on a computer with an Intel Core i9-13900KS processor and an MSI MPG Z690 Carbon Wi-Fi motherboard.
