Both Microsoft and Lenovo have officially admitted that after the Windows 10 2004 update, many Lenovo laptops have encountered bothersome problems. Lenovo had to create a dedicated support page for customers who have had problems after Windows 10’s “release”.
Based on user reports, the error rate and the number of errors that Lenovo laptop models encounter after updating the latest Windows 10 version are higher than other devices. Fortunately, most errors have a quick fix. Microsoft and Lenovo are also working together to develop the patch and will roll out soon.

Lenovo laptop stuck with blue screen error
* Update September 21:
Microsoft has officially released a confirmation message that some Lenovo devices may experience the “blue screen of death” (BSOD) error on Windows 10 2004 (May 2020 Update), and the Windows development team is working on Pole works with the Chinese PC manufacturer to release the patch as soon as possible.
This problem was first discovered in August this year, after Lenovo itself advised customers that they might have a serious problem after updating to Windows 10 version 2004. For more specific explanation from the Microsoft side, the problem seems to only occur on computers with Lenovo Vantage installed. This is a software that Microsoft allows pre-installed on Lenovo laptops to collect users’ usage habits to optimize the experience over time.
“Enabling the Enhanced Windows Biometric Security option in UEFI for Lenovo ThinkPad devices manufactured in 2019 or 2020 has a high risk of this error. When the Lenovo Vantage software launches, it may attempt to access the PCI device configuration space in an unsupported way, resulting in the system picking up errors, “ Microsoft explained in a recently released statement. .
Although both Microsoft and Lenovo have stated that they are actively working on fixing the bug, it is not clear when an official patch will be released. Luckily, there is still a temporary workaround that Lenovo laptop users affected by this bug can use instead of having to uninstall Windows 10 version 2004 from the device.
Basically, the problem stems from the similar incompatibility between Enhanced Windows Biometric Security on Lenovo systems with Lenovo Vantage installed. To temporarily mitigate this issue, edit your device’s UEFI configuration (under Security> Virtualization ) to turn off Enhanced Windows Biometric Security. This change will also disable restrictions enabled by the SDEV and VBS boards.
