About KB5001330 update issue

Microsoft regularly releases patches to update the security of Windows 10. As a rule, such updates are released twice a month. A distinctive feature is the release of massive and necessary updates/fixes on Patch Tuesday. Other releases (usually every two weeks) contain elements of fixes. KB5001330 updates Windows v20H2 and v2004 on Tuesday.

For some data, KB5001330 affects operating systems running a version of Windows 10 installed from the installation media. PCs connected directly to the Windows Update Center in order to receive update patches are not affected.

Bearing in mind this information about the KB5001330 update patch, you must make your own determination whether or not to update your OS.

Possible troubles

According to Microsoft's changelog for KB5001330, it appears that replacing Microsoft Edge Legacy with a more recent version results in problems when using KB5001330. In media containing the Windows 10 installation component customizable ISO image, the KB5001330 security update may remove Microsoft Edge Legacy and will not be automatically replaced with a more recent version of Microsoft Edge Legacy.

Typically, the problem lies in the fact that a storage device or ISO images are created, and this KB5001330 security update is installed without first installing its offline servicing stack (SSU). SSU was released and works after March 29, 2021.

At the time of release, it was revealed that devices communicating directly with the Windows Update Center do not have such a problem since they are constantly being updated to receive the latest SSU versions.

For an ordinary user, this means that if you want to install Windows 10 v20H2 or v2004 from the installation disc, specifically from the ISO that was recorded with the Media Creation Tool, the only solution is to wait patiently for an update from Microsoft. As a rule, the solution to the problem should occur with the release of the patch for resolving update errors in two weeks.

Also, remember that you can wait up to 35 days to install updates.

Keep in mind that the delay in updates also has a negative effect on the operation of the device, especially with the release of patches on Tuesday.
