    This update “bricked” my Windows Server 2016 / Xeon processor system. I read about some issues with AMD processors; maybe also applies to Intel ones too. The update corrupted files NTOSKRNL.EXE, HAL.DLL and PDC.SYS. After repairing these files from the recovery disk, system still failed to boot with error 0XC0000001. I ended up restoring from a system backup image.
