    Has anyone had issues with the System Hardware Update from 5/14/2015 installing fine and then later on it will say that it needs to install? It keeps happening and I can't figure it out.

    I have the same. Firmware updates never seem to fully install in Windows 10 for me on my Surface Pro 3 (I assume you're talking about the same device). I always either get an error to say it didn't install, or it thinks it's installed and prompts a reboot. The next day, the same update appears again.

    Yes, sorry about that. I'm using a SP3. But, yep, it happens the same with me for this system update. All others have actually installed fine for me...just the problem with this particular one.

    I'm having the same issue. What is this update about anyways?

    Not sure now. I finally just went back to 8.1. The bug with the lockscreen blanking if I was using a picture password and the crashes in general just made me move on.

    It's been an issue with all Surface Pros for quite a while. There was something I read about it being related to if the user has ever done a system restore/installed another OS through the BIOS. But that seemed to be not fully correct. Even more annoying is that (from what I can see) in 10, you can't hide/dismiss/decline the update. It just keeps on wanting to reinstall.

    Count me in as well. Is it strange to be glad I am not alone? I have submitted this to the feedback app...hopefully we can get a fix at some point.

    I wouldn't hold your breath - it's been an issue since the first update for the first Surface Pro. And still no fix.

    I'm glad I'm not the only surface pro 3 user with this problem with Windows 10 (build 10130).
    I did try downloading the update manually, but cannot find a firmware pack with the 5/14 date.

    Same issue here. Reply back if anyone finds something. I did do an OS re-install via BIOS also if anyone is counting.

    Same here. Get prompted to install it every day or so and it seems to complete but still getting prompted.

    I also have this issue on my Surface Pro 3. Is there a way to check and see if it is installed?

    Ok, after installing 10162 I was prompted to again install the 5/14 hardware update. This time it is listed in my history as successful.

    Oh there's finally a fix? I had this forever! On SP1

    Not necessarily - after a "successful" installation it will often try another installation and fail. And fail. And fail....

    After running disk clean up to remove the Windows.old folder on C:\ drive, do some folders remain behind which contain some Surface-specific .sys driver files?

    I had the same problem after deleting these files, but they have since reappeared and I'm not having problems any more (not sure if it's a coincidence)

    This appears to have been installed for me after moving up to the latest Windows 10 build (it appears in the list of installed updates now).

    Remains to be seen whether it returns in the next couple of days.

    I have had to install after every build (yesterday included) but only one time per build.
