According to the source, Microsoft discovered a compatibility problem in Windows 11 (22H2) with the drivers used to enable Intel Smart Sound Technology. The problem occurs on computers with 11th generation Intel processors and is expressed in the appearance of “Blue Screen of Death”. Spontaneous reboots can occur when using earlier versions of the Intel SST audio controller drivers, including versions 10.29.0.5152 and 10.30.0.5152.

Computers running the mentioned driver versions will not automatically upgrade to Windows 11 (22H2). Users are advised not to circumvent this limitation, as installing the update may cause BSoD. Instead, it is recommended that users update their audio controller drivers to versions 10.30.00.5714 and 10.29.00.5714. If there are newer versions in the respective 10.29.x or 10.30.x branch, you need to install the latest version. After updating the audio controller drivers, the Windows 11 (22H2) installation will be unlocked.
