    Windows 10 install problem 0xC1900101 - 0x20017


    Hello,

    I have a problem with installing Windows 10 (either upgrade or clean install). I think the problem has started 2.5 years ago when suddenly Windows 8 stopped installing updates. I think it stopped installing updates after the Windows 8.1 upgrade through the store has failed.

    Just about a month ago, updates resumed and a bunch of them were installed. But after several days, one security update has failed to install and Windows update is stuck at this point.

    I decided last week to upgrade to Windows 10. Direct upgrade wasn't possible because I have o upgrade to Windows 8.1 first, which I can't. So I have created a clean install media on USB using the media creation tool. I plugged in the USB, shut down then started and selected the USB drive as first choice for booting. It brought the Windows logo, and 1 minute later, the laptop shut down. I repeated the operation twice with the same result.

    I tried then to do a clean install of Windows 8.1 from another USB, but shortly after the logo, instead of shutting down, I got a light blue screen with "something went wrong" message and the machine restarted.

    Then I decided to run the USB that have Windows 10 from Windows. I selected to remove every thing and proceeded. The process after that went slow increment of 1% took about 10 minutes. Then I got the first restart, and it went the same as it shut down. I started the laptop and it went again to Windows 8. After I logged on, I got the following message:

    We couldn't install Windows 10
    We've set your PC back to the way it was right before you started installing Windows 10.

    0xC1900101 - 0x20017
    The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during boot operation.

    I have found some solutions on the internet, but I am not sure if they will work, considering the history of my machine.

    Thanks,

    :)
     

  2. Error 0xC1900101-0x20017 while upgrading to Windows 10

    Hi Fede,

    We apologize for the delay in response.

    I understand that you get “error 0xC1900101-0x20017” when you try to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10.

    Before proceeding, we need to know whether the partition type you use on your Windows 7 is NTFS/GPT.

    This error may arise due to the Hardware compatibility issue.

    Reference: I suggest you to refer the below thread and check if it helps.

    Hi onyr and welcome to Tenforums.

    I think, when you do the clean install of W10, you need to make sure you have removed all partitions and are installing to a drive which shows as "unallocated". See in the tutorial:
    Windows 10 - Clean Install - Windows 10 Forums

    Specifically you want to be sure your drive looks like this before you begin:


    Windows 10 install problem 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 [​IMG]


    Unless your drive is failing, this should do it.

    Before you start, perhaps you might want to run chkdsk on your OS drive.

    At an administrative command prompt, enter Code: chkdsk c: /r[/quote] enter, and reboot the machine. Chkdsk will run at boot.


    EDIT: p.s Please make sure Fast Startup is turned off to get a proper boot.
