Are there any known issues with this update?

Though Microsoft has not documented any issue for this update, you may still face issues that were coming from the original release of Windows 11 2022. The known issues on this feature update were as follows –

  • If you are trying to upgrade to Windows 11, 2022 using the provisioning packages, this might not work as expected. Following this way, Windows might only be partially configured, and the Out Of Box Experience might not finish or might restart unexpectedly.
  • Copying a large amount of data might take longer than expected on Windows 11, version 22h2. This problem worsens when you are copying files from a network share via Server Message Block (SMB). Note that you will face this issue even while copying or moving files locally on your Windows 11 PC. 

What are Provisioning packages?

Provisioning packages are basically “.PPKG” files that one uses to configure new devices for use on business or school networks. If you have already installed Windows 11 using such packages, you may encounter issues during its initial setup.
