Unfortunately, there isn't much those who are affected with the rebooting issues can do until Intel releases the new patch. The company said it has started rolling out an early version of the updated solution to partners for testing and will make a final release that will become available after the testing has been completed.
Intel Corp. reported on Monday that it has discovered the cause of reboot issues that affected its Broadwell and Haswell processors after patches were applied created to fix potential side-channel "speculative execution" exploits.
In new guidance, the company states: "We have now identified the root cause for Broadwell and Haswell platforms, and made good progress in developing a solution to address it".
Each time news trickles out about just how insane this unprecedented industry event really is, cloud vendors and data center managers consider buying servers from AMD or ARM vendors the next time their systems need to be replaced.
The company recommends that manufacturers and users "stop deployment of current versions, as they may introduce higher than expected reboots and other unpredictable system behavior", said Intel executive vice president Navin Shenoy in a blog post.

The announcement of the alternative update doesn't inspire confidence that this reboot issue will be fixed shortly. "The security of our products is critical for Intel, our customers and partners, and for me, personally".
Shenoy also posted updates on the performance tests they were conducting in data centers.
"We continue to urge all customers to vigilantly maintain security best practice and for consumers to keep systems up-to-date", Shenoy said. A spokesperson for Intel told Business Insider that the company is working on the Haswell and Broadwell chips first, and will subsequently work on fixes for other models. However, until then, Intel is changing their tune in terms of updating.
