KB4056892 might causes AMD-CPU’s to boot with 0x800f0845 error code

The recent released KB4056892 might cause trouble on some PCs according to some forum posts, here and here. In case you have trouble with this KB just uninstall it and wait for the next Patchday (9. January) next Tuesday. WinCentral was reporting that the Windows Mobile OS v15254.158 (KB4073117KB4056891) in the meantime also got the KB (it’s rolling out right now), which might also could cause the same issue – some Windows phones using a SoC based on Cortex-A57 which are affected by Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities.
