My Lenovo X220 is fitted with a i5 2520M, Centrino Wifi, Gigabit Ethernet and Ericsson F5521gw wwan.
I would like to report a problem with migration to 1903.
Yesterday, I initiated migration from Windows 10 1809 to Windows 10 1903. During process, at install time (auto reboot, then blue screen with percentage), at around 48%, system gave up with a BSOD, Pagefault in NDIS.sys and then stopped. On the next boot, system was restored to its previous state (1809).
So I investigated and retried again and again. The solution was to remove any unneeded network hardware driver during migration (I kept Centrino Wifi). I even turned off Wifi (green switch) once download phase has ended. I also removed the graphic card driver.
I think Ericsson F5521gw old 2011 Windows 7 driver was the culprit. Anyway, everything went ok, and I even installed it back after migration. Haven't tested it though.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi Phil3391! Welcome to our forums community. The Thinkpad 220 is not compatible with Windows 10. The drivers for this is available up until Windows 8.1 only. It is not also tested to work with Windows 1803. Please refer to the link: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht506455.

I can confirm that it is the WWAN driver only. I deleted the WWAN component including the driver (Ericsson F5521gw) and the upgrade (1809 -> 1903) worked.

I disabled & uninstalled the "F5221gw Mobile Broadband Driver" device and its drivers under "Network Adapters" and, as reported above, the re-attempt to upgrade to 1903 then proceeded to completion.
I tried re-installing the 18.104.22.168 driver (83wo14ww.exe) under W7 compatibility mode (see Ben Lee's tips) BSOD occurred similar to when attempting the upgrade to 1903. Then tried installing 22.214.171.124 driver (g1wo11ww.exe), apparently intended for X230 rather than X220, under W7 compatibility mode. Successful - mobile wireless and GPS work OK except that ThinkVantage Maps under GPS Enabler 2.81 does not open properly (script error) but e.g. Memory Map works OK. I have the impression that the GPS is better under the 126.96.36.199 driver.

Confirmed solution for both my X1 and W520.

I found it was easier to install Windows from a USB stick and load it from in whatever was running. This solved the problem of windows update not wanting to do something.
Part of the problem is with the telemetry servers which show many with device driver problems. These can be resolved and the machine fully setup but Lenovo update is not being helpful.
Manual selection of the suitable drivers can get the machine working.

Freezing when installing the May 2019 Update 1903 Windows 10 through the Media Creation Tool in update mode on the X220 laptop:
ThinkPad Model 429032U with BIOS mod LENOVO 8DET63WW (1.33), Ericsson F3607gw (driver 188.8.131.52 83wo14ww.exe), OS version 1803, BSOD errors never appeared. Version 1809 was not installed at the time for the same reason - freezing during installation.
After the removal of F3607gw, the freeze during installation began to appear at 75% instead of 60%. Good luck smiled after removing the Cryptopro and RuToken device programs and drivers. Next, the same F3607gw driver version 184.108.40.206 is installed in Win7 compatibility mode. Functionality Ericsson F3607gw full. Everything works, except for the original ThinkVantage Maps program - a script error when accessing Bing Maps.
