Windows 10 v1803 crashes or drop battery life with Intel/Toshiba SSD

Windows 10 April 2018 Update is not compatible with lots of Solid-state drives, and causes many PC running into strange problem. After I install version 1803 on my computer with Intel SSD, the System crashes and then reboot to enter a UEFI screen. That also happens with Intel SSD Pro 6000p. Microsoft has pushed updates to blocking some tablet or computer with those specified models. The next version will resolve it completely.

To fix the SSD issue temporarily, you have to restore to the previous version of operating system like version 1709. Simply power off the machine, make a rebooting, keep hitting F8 key from your keyboard and roll back the OS. For unspecified Intel SSDs users, it is no way to install the 1803 update manually, due to the reduced performance and stability.

Along with Intel, PC with other SSD product facing some issue after upgraded to Windows 10 version 1803 update. The battery life drops quickly and make the performance worse, while also breaks wifi connection after a cold boot. I always lost the WiFi with internet. Suffering battery life appears with those device, including Toshiba XG4 Series, Toshiba XG5 Series, Toshiba BG3 Series and Samsung NVMe. Somehow the Asus boards updates their BIOS and get rid of that.

Luckily my laptop with Toshiba XG5 is never unplugged in the 1803 update. But I get a lot of random BSOD blue screen while I am watching Netflix or playing game. Sometimes I sign in my account and then the display driver crashed every 3 seconds.
