Windows 10 Patch Restart Causes OOBE Screens

Today I have installed Windows 10 patches KB4540673 & KB4541338 on the 1909 version. I was not expecting the following screen after the restart of the Windows 10 Surface Book. Windows 10 Patch Restart causing Confusing OOBE Screens! Have you seen this?

NOTE! – As per my twitter conversation, I don’t think this is wide spread issue. All the Windows 10 devices are NOT getting these screens after the patch restart.
