Cumulative update known issues

Devices with Windows installations created from custom offline media or custom ISO image could lose Microsoft Edge Legacy after upgrading and not being replaced with the new Microsoft Edge. This issue only occurs when creating ISO images or custom offline media by embedding this update in the image without first installing the Independent Servicing Stack (SSU) update released on March 29 2021 or later. To avoid this problem, make sure to first integrate the SSU released on March 29, 2021 or later into the custom offline media or ISO image before integrating the LCU. To do this with the combined SSU and LCU packages now used for Windows 10 version 20H2 and Windows 10 version 2004, you will need to extract the SSU from the combo package.
