KB5022303 Known Issues
When you install this update, you might not be able to use provisioning packages on Windows 11, version 22H2 (also called Windows 11 2022 Update). It is possible that Windows is only partially configured, or that the Out Of The Box Experience fails or restarts unexpectedly.
Provisioning the Windows device will prevent this issue if you upgrade to version 22H2 of Windows 11. The issue is currently being investigated, and an update will follow shortly.
It may take longer than expected for Windows 11, version 22H2 to copy large multiple Gigabyte (GB) files. This issue usually occurs when copying files from a network share via Server Message Block (SMB) to Windows 11, version 22H2, but local file copies may also be affected.
In order to avoid this issue, you could use a file copy tool that does not rely on the cache manager (buffering I/O).
