    Yay! Let's see if it really works. It looks a little strange coming from MS, especially with grammatical mistakes and releasing a firmware update via their website with a file called FW. Lol. Anyone have any experience with it?

    I am surprised they released a UEFI update through something other than Windows Update there.

    It is currently classified QFE Update for a specific issue that is impacting a large enough group of users they released it Out of Band (They did this in February with a Video Driver Update as well).

    I couldn't replicate it either. I rarely use an sd card so I figure 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'. You'll get it in two weeks anyways on patch Tuesday.

    Excellent - all fixed for me. Now I can, at last, use my SD card :)

    Exactly! Some patches, even for laptops and desktops, going back as far as I can remember, were only intended for certain combinations of software and hardware that were causing problems. Many were not intended for general release and some were even reserved for a Microsoft tech to actually suggest. So your statement about if it isn't broke is right on.
