Machines hang during the solidcore upgrade V8.3

We perform in-place upgrade from V8.2 to V8.3 through EPO console. However we found many devices hang during the V8.3 upgrade until we manual reboot it.

Re: Machines hang during the solidcore upgrade V8.3

Hi @User55327495 

Thank you for reaching out to McAfee Community.

This is a Known issue as per KB below.

The workaround is as below. 


Issue: After installation, Windows hangs on start or causes startup to hang. Affects Windows 7 and later.

Solution: Fix in and later + set "sadmin config set ServiceStartFinetune=7" after install before reboot for new boot changes.


You can upgrade to MACC 8.3.3 and this does not have this issue anymore.
