[1709 only]Microsoft releases KB4073290 that fixes issues caused by KB4056892 especially on AMD Based systems

This month’s updates for Windows 10, especially for AMD Based systems has been a much of a headache. As the patch was released in Emergency, there was expected to be some bugs. However, there were a large number of bugs, not what MS expected.
Users encountered several types of issues like
Inaccessible Boot Device
Blue Screen of Deaths
Hanging, crashing etc.
As a result of this, Microsoft had to withdraw the patch immediately for AMD based systems. After a brief stop, they were resumed for modern processors but not for older hardware. Now, Microsoft has come up with a fix by releasing a Windows update.
