    Did a search in M$ Update Catalog, it throws an error.

    Edit: Lol, it shows now in the catalog.

    The regkey is not present, but there is also no AV present.

    If you do not have an A/V, your not going to get a key. The A/V provides the key for the M$ update. Without an A/V you could get the kb and install and you should not have any bsod's

    Without an AV there is no regkey (at least on 7), so no kb offered on WU.

    But i exported the key from 10 and imported it in 7:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\QualityCompat]
    "cadca5fe-87d3-4b96-b7fb-a231484277cc"=dword:00000000
    Now it gets KB4056894 offered on WU :)

    yes... you have to manually get the kb and update. Please let us know if you are getting any performance hits

    After installing 2018-01 update, two different PC, it can't boot to Win7 anymore. It reports that there is problem with software or hardware.

    Does anybody else have this problem, or should I provide more details about it?

    tnx

    If the people experiencing the BSODs can share their specs and other relevant system information that will be helpful.

    The issues seem to mainly be happening on older chips, especially AMD ones.

    yes, KB4056894 is affecting all AMD Athlon 64 and related CPUs, causing that after first reboot it crash during boot and can't continue booting anymore, and the only solution for now is recover from a previous restore point before the update.

    so far I've seen reports of the KB4056894 update for Win7 causing BSODs mainly on computers with AMD CPUs and not on those using Intel CPUs (unless someone can find out whether or not the KB4056894 update for Win7 can cause a BSOD on a machine with an Intel processor)
