    Error 0xC1900101 0x20017 - A driver has caused a problem.


    I have not been able to update my Windows 10 Pro Version 1909 Build 18363.1082 to version 2004, in spite of several efforts.

    I thought if I reinstalled 1909 I might be able to then upgrade to 2004.

    I ran setup.exe from the 1909 ISO, but after the computer restarted I got

    We couldn't install Windows 10

    We've set your PC back to the way it was right before you started installing Windows 10.

    0xC1900191 - 0x20017

    The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation.

    This seems to be a driver problem?

    What I would like to learn is how to find out which device driver is causing this error.

    C:\Windows\Panther\UnattendGC\setuperr.log contains only

    2020-09-15 18:43:04, Error [RelPost.exe] RegOpenKeyExRecEnv failed: 0x2

    while setupact.log goes:

    This seems to be a problem with Windows Recovery? Here is the DISKPART detail of my recovery partition:


    Partition 2

    Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info

    I would appreciate any hints or advice on how to fix this.

    re-installing Windows 10, error 0xC1900101 - 0x20017: bad drivers?

    @jonobugs, that's the 'simple' help page. There's a more technical page available. That one says...

    The log files should identify precisely which driver is at fault.
