Systems with Skylake or Kaby Lake processors can crash due to a bug that occurs when hyperthreading is enabled.

Intel has fixed the bug in a microcode update, but until and unless you install the update, the recommendation is that hyperthreading be disabled in the system firmware.

A fix is available for Linux systems; Windows users will have to use firmware updates.

Hi VinDSL,

Interesting thank you, I can't say I have noticed any glitches / odd reboots / crashes.

Hopefully the update will come down soon.
