0xc1900101 - 0x30018 Error during update -> restore Win8

Q: 0xc1900101 - 0x30018 Error during update -> restore Win8

Hey,

I've tried to install the Win 8.1 Update via the Windows Store and got the 0xc1900101 - 0x30018 several times after the PC restarted at the ending of the update.

I know that several users solved this with disabling drivers, so I did some suggestions I've found.

1. Disabling AV (Kaspersky)

2. Disabling LAN Controllers

3. Uninstalling DAEMON Tools, TuneUp

4.

--> DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

--> sfc /scannow

--> wsreset.exe

5. Trying to repair Windows Update itself via "WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab"

6. Disabling AIDA

7. Disabling all components from my ASUS motherboard

some other things I can't remember...

For your information, I don't want to install Windows 8.1 from scratch, as I have too many programs and I never had problems with installing an OS for this system (Win7, Win8).

Thanks for the help

There was a time when Bluetooth devices caused problems. If you have any, you might try disabling them in the Bios.

I have not done an install over 8.1. The one time I tried, it said it could not with Media Center installed, so I stopped.

I have a brand new XPS 13, 9343 model with i7 processor and 512GB SSD. I am still within the 14 day cooling off period, and I'm now seriously considering returning it. I have never experienced such a load of nonsense trying to install any other piece of software.
So far, and after many attempts, I've been totally unable to upgrade to Windows 10. The very first thing I did was install all available Windows updates for 8.1 (there were 79 of them), and immediately after that I began the Win10 install saga. Nothing else has been done to the laptop - no dodgy software or USB devices (other than the boot USB where necessary). It is in a clean state.
- After downloading through Windows Update, the installation procedure is INCREDIBLY slow (eg it takes 36 HOURS to reach 42% completion - and at this point it hits the error message). What on earth can it be doing??
- I also tried creating a bootable USB through the media creation tool. If I boot from this USB drive and perform a "clean" install, this works perfectly - it takes about 8 minutes in total (which emphasises how ridiculous the 36 hours is). However, because it is a clean install and not an "upgrade", I end up with a non-activated version of Windows 10 and I get prompted to pay £99.99, which I have no intention of doing. I paid for the laptop on the understanding it would get a FREE upgrade to Win10!

Hello to all,

bought a new Sattelite Pro C850-1MX (PSCBZE 00M009GR) in december 2013. System is running almost unchanged to delivery state. Yet installed OpenOffice, Firefox and AdobeReader in most actual versions. And updated driver for AMD-GPU to latest version. No other changes done.

Now tried to upgrade to Windows 8.1 via Windows-App-Store. Download was done, upgrade run, reboot, installing changes, preparing devices --> reboot, rollback to 8.0 with error code 0xC1900101-0x30018.

Searched internet for solutions: Toshiba sais
- update all Toshiba-components via TOSHIBA Service Station --> done
- (Link: [http://www.toshiba.de/innovation/generic/windows8_1-upgrade-stepbystep/]): deinstall some components: esp. LAN/WLAN-driver.

Hmmm...if I do so I cannot access Windows App-Store to rerun the upgrade because i have no network-connection. Stupid...

- Why can?t I upgrade an almost unchanged system because of some driver-uncompatibilities where i didnt change anything from delivery state???

Please state any hint/solution. Thanks!

So here is whats going on. Windows 8.1 failed to install. It would download, install, restart, install some more, restart, and then when it got to the updating devices or whatever it was exactly, it would error with 0xC1900101 - 0x30018. I found threads that pointed the issue to being wireless card issues. I tried updating the drivers before install, no go. The only thing that worked was disabling the card in the BIOS (I actually just ripped the damn thing out, but it works the same). So finally got windows 8.1 installed. Went to put my wireless card back in, booted up, almost instant frowny face blue screen. So 8.1 broke my wireless capability all together. If anyone has any ideas or knows how to fix this I would appreciate it. Otherwise it looks like I will just have to wait for microsoft to fix their default drivers or whatever they did. FYI, i have a ASUS Dual-band PCE-N35 wireless card.

Hey guys,

I've been having a problem with upgrading to Windows 10. I've tried using the tool both by running it on my PC and putting it on a USB. It gets through the first part of copying files and does the first reboot, then it starts back to the screen and the Installing Features and Drivers sits at 0% for a few seconds then resets and restores my old version with this error:

0xC1900101 - 0x30018 - The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with the error during SYSPREP operation.

Hi All.

I am a Mac user, but bought a PC on craigslist, that had windows Windows 7 on it. I am trying to upgrade it to Windows 10 and it is failing every time. I have downloaded the update package and installed that way and it fails at 32% of total install, approx 12% of installing drivers and features. I have done quite a bit of reading on the subject so i have tried the following:

-removed all unnecessary hardware
-rolled back drivers
-update to newest drivers
-removed antivirus
-removed all aftermarket software
-attempted upgrade by installing via flash drive and by disc

there are probably others that i cannot recall in my frustration.

i have read about a video card causing issues. The mobo does not have onboard video and this machine has a GeForce 8600 GTS SLI, without the 2nd card installed.

not sure if it is worth buying a cheap card to install to see if that is the issue...

i am sure i will recall other specifics once we start some conversation here, but i would greatly appreciate your help. My intent is to donate this machine so i want to ensure it is working properly so i do not have to offer free tech advice in the future that i am not qualified to give.

Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays

Background: The computer never appeared to update automatically, but there was never any error code. I tried to use the Windows 10 upgrade assistant. The upgrade would go through download and install to 100% but then restart back to version 1511 with no error message. Finally, I downloaded the 1607 iso, extracted it to my hard disk, and installed from there. Again the update went to 100% and then reverted back to 1511, but this time it gave the error message 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 "The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation."

A:Bios update and win8 error

If the PC is running Windows XP then I would advise to NOT update to Windows 8.

Chances are you will not be able to find any drivers for the system and it will cause issues.

Do not update the BIOS as choosing the wrong BIOS or updating incorrectly will cause the PC to become a big paper weight.

Previously, I'd gone through a terrible tribulation trying to get my two HP computers from the initial RTM build 10240 to version 1607 Anniversary Update. Spent hours/days trying to troubleshoot it. The only thing that eventually worked was to download a specific ISO file, for version 1511 build 10586.679. I did try updating to 1607 in the next step, but that failed... and I gave up.

Fast forward a couple months, 1607 got pushed to one of my computers successfully. However, the other one ended up failing.

There were many posts about this issue back in the earlier days of people trying to update from RTM 10240. Deja-vu. However, nothing seems to work. I tried downloading the 1607 ISO file and running it... which resulted in the error above after about 1.5 hours. Next, I used the Media Creation Tool to try getting 1607 installed... ran into the same error again.

I did leave the notify Microsoft option in place, so whatever errors were made ended up forwarded to Microsoft. But I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to fix this... or if I'll just have to wait. Any thoughts/suggestions?

Thanks!

Good morning. This is a good one and will probably require the time and patience of Brink. Installed Win8 CP build 8250 last week and have noticed that Windows Defender will not update. Reason being that the Windows Update Agent has seemed to crashed. It updated the first batch of apprx. 27 Updates but when I currently check for new Updates, it freezes for apprx. 90 secs. and says that there are no more important updates. Imagine that! I'm not connected to Microsoft's PC Servers and error 8024401C is highlighted. I understand that this is a known issue with Win8 CP and largely due to Proxy servers. Needless to say, I have NO Proxy! I can already see that this will be an irreconcilable problem. I've seen this once before in Win7 Enterprise and I scratched the OS alltogether as a bailout. Not to worry - This OS is timebombed for Jan 16 2013 and I won't sweat the details. Microsoft will say that because it's a Beta is why the issue presents itself. I guess that it's no surprise that I don't give Microsoft the time of day nor any proceeds. Let's climb the ladder. Where's Brink ? I'm gonna need a senior Admin for this one. Goodday.

After the most recent update from Windows Store for Windows 8.1 Pro, my Intel Wireless drivers got busted. I could only connect to the Internet via the Ethernet cable and no matter how hard I try re-installing/uninstalling the drivers for the wireless drivers, I still get the same outcome.
In Device Manger, I checked the listing for Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection.
In the Properties menu, I get this message:





This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)
If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.



I went to install software from Intel's website for diagnosing the wireless driver/connection status, so I ran Intel PROSet/WIreless Tools, and after clicking Diagnose > Run Tests for Hardware Test, I get this message:





Wireless Hardware is not bound to transport driver.



My wi-fi switch on the left side of my laptop is already turned on. I switched it off, uninstalled and deleted the driver and restarted the laptop to see if I could reinstall. Upon turning back the switch on after logging into my Windows account, I still get the same outcome: code 12.
I have also searched on Google and the Microsoft forums for similar topics, all point towards uninstalling/deleting the drivers and re-installing. I did those, and none of them worked.
I would appreciate if someone can post a working solution.

Hi,

My son's Toshilba Satellite L50-B-1DV hasn't successfully run a Windows Update since last October - I only discovered this yesterday.

When I had a closer look the updates, and just about every kind of troubleshooting I try, is failing with the error message "0x80070057". I've rooted around online but can't see any obvious fixes.

We'd prefer to fix this ourselves but as the machine is only six months our next step is to take it back to John Lewis for repair - which would be a pity as he uses his laptop every day.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

A:Satellite L50-B-1DV Win8.1 - Windows Update Error Message 0x80070057

Hi

You have mentioned the error 0x80070057 while update installation.
This error occurs due to multiple reasons and therefore it?s not easy to say why this happens exactly. But the most common cause could be the missconfigured registry or damaged system reserved partition.

My recommendation for workaround:
Try to repair the system and the registry using CCLeaner. You could use this freeware software for registry cleaning as well as to remove the ?system garabage?.

If this does not help, try to repair the OS using the system?s own options.
The "Automatic Repair" option attempts automatically to diagnose and fix problems that may cause Windows 8 not to start or having a different wrong behavior.
Automatic Repair will start automatically when Windows is unable to start properly. If it detects any problems, it will automatically attempt to fix it but it can also be started manually.

Access to Automatic Repair can be found on the Windows 8 start screen. Now "Advanced" in the search box. When the search results appears click on the "Settings" category.

Now click on the option "Advanced startup options" and you will see the "General PC Settings screen". Look for the option "Advanced startup". Click on the restart now button and Windows 8 will restart your computer to access directly the Advanced startup menu.

Hi,

This 64GB internal card was working fine on win8.0 Acer v5, laptop.

Tried four different SD cards, win8.1 could not see any.
I have checked with SFC and DISM no problems.
Hardware Diagnostic tool does not find the SD.
Updated drivers from Acer. No help.
Have Auto Play set to use for everything.
Tried 8GB and 32GB SD cards, nothing.
If I plug the SD cards into a USB adapter they all work fine.

This sucks big time as the SD is my daily back up drive.

Any help?

A:SD Card Gone after win8.0 update to win8.1

OK, problem solved. Win8.1 kept seeing the SD card slot and installing the "Standard SD card slot drivers.

Acer's Support for this model V5 showed the card reader as an Alcom or something close to that and I was pretty sure that was wrong. I reinstalled an older backup image of win8 and Device manager showed the SD card reader as Broadcom SD SCSI drivers.

I reinstated the win8.1 in place of the win8 backup and then I went back to the Acer V5 models then looked through until I found a card reader that had Broadcom drivers. Downloaded that and installed and all is well with the world again.

Who was at fault? Beats me, but the card reader is obviously telling win8.1 that it is just a vanilla slot. Acer got it wrong for not listing a Broadcom card reader driver with this model. On many of their models they list two or three different drivers, but for mine there was only one and it was the wrong one for what was actually in the laptop.

The original win8.0 worked fine as the Broadcom drives were installed at the Acer factory.

I have used FixWin from Windows Club, it says it created a restore point for me but there is none. I also tried SCF and as usual it said it fixed some but not all files.
 
Also tried Microsoft FixIt but that didn't work either.
 
I tried start repair and it said it cannot repair whatever's wrong.
 
I am at wits end. I very recently did a Refresh and am almost finished downloading programs I want to reinstall, I really want to avoid redoing that again mainly because I only have a 3G internet connection which is slow and very expensive.

After trying all the fixes I could find on the net I decided I had to reinstall Windows 8.1. I luckily found a site with instructions on how to do a non-destructive reinstall, exactly what I needed.
 
Lots of windows info to be found there. For anybody interested:

Cheers,
