Additionally, Lenovo said that some users will not be able to log in with Windows Hello, which is Windows 10’s biometric authentication feature on some hardware-enabled devices.

According to Lenovo, the following errors may appear when updating to Windows 10 version 2004, including:

  • Blue screen error when booting.
  • Blue screen error when starting up Lenovo Vantage.
  • Blue screen error when running Windows Defender Scan.
  • Cannot sign in with Windows Hello.
  • Error in Device Manager related to Intel Management Engine.
  • An error in the Device Manager is related to the IR Camera.

Lenovo explains that only ThinkPads released in 2019 and 2020 are affected by the above issues. And the only solution is to disable the Enhanced Windows Biometric Security setting under Virtualization in the Security page on the BIOS page.

However, this process should not take too long as the new feature update is expected to be finalized this September as Windows 10 version 20H2.
