Installed creators and immediately saw two problems. Solved one. Could do not solve other:
1. Screen Dimmer broke: The dimmer control would no longer dim. I could get full bright or min dim no matter where the control was placed. After many hours of trying different drivers, firmware, etc, finally had to revert to prior verion.
2. Initially, external monitors failed. Eventually solved that by reinstalling drivers. But given the first problem, it no longer mattered.
You may wish to avoid this update as I've found a fair number of display related issues with this release.
1. Which X1 Carbon Generation is your laptop?
(2nd generation? 3rd generation? 4th generation?)
2. We are sticking with Windows 7 until the year 2020 for almost all of our machines.
It is precisely teething problems after Win10 Windows Update like these that we are avoiding the Win10 like the plague.
Current Thinkpads: X1E1 | X1C4 | X1C3 | X250 | X230 | T410
Retired Thinkpads: T42 | 560 (circa 1996)

at least not big updates like this., smaller updates however could probably be blocked.
