Windows 10 20H2 and 2004 upgrades blocked over Intel Thunderbolt ‘DMA violation’

Microsoft has warned Windows 10 users that they might be blocked from upgrading to Windows 10 versions 2004 or 20H2 due to a compatibility issue with Intel’s Thunderbolt NVMe SSD. 

Whenever Microsoft releases a new feature update – even minor ones, like Windows 10 20H2, which is basically the same as version 2004 – hardware drivers invariably run into compatibility issues. 

This time, Intel and Microsoft have found that a compatibility issue with these two versions of Windows 10 causes a nasty blue-screen error when plugging in an external NVMe SSD via Thunderbolt.

DMA refers to Direct Memory Access, which Thunderbolt has when plugged in, allowing a device to transfer data to and

Twitter backtracks, allows users to post previously blocked NY Post article

PALO ALTO Calif/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twitter Inc TWTR.N on Friday confirmed it reversed its decision to block links to a New York Post article about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son, despite reaffirming the ban late on Thursday.

Republicans who had decried Twitter’s earlier actions posted the story freely on the site. “You can now share the bombshell story Big Tech didn’t want you to see,” Arizona Representative Paul Gosar tweeted on Friday morning.

Twitter acknowledged Friday it had stopped blocking links to early versions of the New York Post articles, saying the private information included in them had become widely available in the press and on other platforms.

The company’s policy chief Vijaya Gadde said Thursday night that Twitter had decided to make changes to its hacked materials policy following feedback, but a spokesman told Reuters that the New York Post story would still be blocked for “violating the

House Judiciary Republicans say Twitter blocked them from sharing Hunter Biden story from their website

Twitter blocked attempts to share a copy of the New York Post’s story regarding Hunter Biden’s contentious business affairs that was posted to the official website of House Judiciary Republicans.

Users reported they were unable to share the link from the lawmakers’ website, as Twitter reported it as “potentially harmful.” When users try to click on the link, Twitter flagged the material with a warning label, saying it could be “spammy” or “unsafe.”

The House Judiciary Republicans’ account later tweeted that they put another copy of the story on the committee’s ranking member Rep. Jim Jordan’s website, which seemed to do the trick.

“Twitter censored our last link! So, we put the article on @Jim_Jordan‘s website. Nice try, @jack. But, we won’t stop. Click, share, and RT!” the committee’s account tweeted.

Twitter Blocked a Government Website to Protect Biden

When the New York Post’s story on Hunter Biden’s emails first broke, Big Tech spent the day censoring the story and locking those who attempted to share it out of their accounts, including White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. Despite the backlash and Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans warning Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey that they plan to issue a subpoena for an emergency testimony, the company did not back down and went as far as blocking users from sharing a government website.

The Republican House Judiciary Committee decided to put the story on their website so that Americans could continue to freely read and access the report. 

“Twitter has blocked users from tweeting the link to the @nypost’s story on Hunter Biden. So we put it on our website for you to read and share,” the House Judiciary GOP tweeted.
