8.1 Failure to install. 0xC1900101 - 0x30018

Q: 8.1 Failure to install. 0xC1900101 - 0x30018

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.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

What about contacting ASUS and see what they say. I don't see any specific Windows 8.1 driver but maybe they have a beta version you could try.

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.

When I originally looked this error up I read that it might be an encryption error so I decrypted both of my drives, ran the install again.. Same error. So now I am at a complete loss as to what to do so I can get myself upgraded.

System:

Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Mobo: ASUS ROG Maximus VII Hero
PCU: Intel i7 4790k 4.00 GHz
GPU: ASUS ROG MARS760x2 (2 GTX 760 chips on one card)
RAM: 16GB DDR3

Please let me know if you have any info or advice as to how I can fix or workaround this issue.

Thanks,

Hoffmann

Hi, how are you?  I am posting here because my error is 0xC1900101 0x30018 (see pic).  I get "stuck" on 40% overall and 23% of installing features and drivers.  I say "stuck" because the inner percentage circle breathes but nothing happens past those percentages.

Upgrading a Windows 8.1 installation and it stuck at getting devices ready at 2%. No BSOD. Has to be specific to 8.1 as I have already installed 10 on a clean partition with no issues on this machine. All drivers up to date. Did try removing Avast. No wireless devices attached. Not really bothered but an upgrade would save a few hours. Tried it twice and it sticks in the same place "Getting devices ready 2%" A reboot restores previous OS.
There is a lot written about this error applying to Windows 8 and wireless devices in laptops....this is a huge desktop machine.

I suppose when it ran the compatibility checker, it showed no problems?

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.

No log files left after the failed attempt?

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

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!

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

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!

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!

Hey all.

I reserved my copy of W10 a long time ago, and I just got back from vacation, so I thought I would just go ahead and install using the Media Creation tool.

After running the tool and downloading it, it installed fine and proceeded to reboot. I think it would be useful to mention that I dual boot Ubuntu and W7. I googled if this would be a problem, but noone said it would be.

After booting back in to W7, I was greeted with the W7 startup message and the login screen. I logged in, and was presented with this message:

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

After some extensive googling, I figured out that for most people the cause of this is driver issues. However, for everyone that I saw, the drivers that were causing the problem were storage drivers (often Roxio drivers) under the Storage Volumes category in Device Manager. However, the only things in that category are Generic Volumes:

http://gyazo.com/9ada51837d715709fdfab3aea66deda3

Also, there are other things hidden in the Device Manager, but they are all network adapters:

http://gyazo.com/86de9fd7803e424ab55f5f6cd17d36f8

Now, I'm not sure where all of these network adapters came from, nor am I sure whether I need them or not. But, even if they were the cause of the problem, I can't delete them; clicking on them and uninstalling them does nothing.

I've repeated the install process maybe 6 or 7 times now. On the last one I did, I just created... Read more

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:

Hi

My laptop has two particitions, C and D. C seems to have quite some bad sectors. Ran chkdsk yesterday for whole day and it marked out some bad sectors.

Now when I do fresh install to drive C, installation cannot complete. Once copying from DVD is over, I can pass the "starting windows" screen but then it loads the blue desktop and an error pop up saying windows was not installed successfully and try to restart. But this just keeps going in circles and never finishes.

I also tried to install OS on D, without formatting D, but ended up with the same situation.

What I am trying now is to back up everything on D and redo the disk partitioning and try again.

But because 1) i do not have an OS now and 2) i cannot install windows on C, the only option I have for backing up is using the command line window during the installation to copy files from D to an external usb disk.

I am using "xcopy /S" and that is extremely slow, driver D has 180G of data...

All the other threads about using robocopy etc tools does not apply here because i do not even have an OS.

So my question is if there is any way I can do the copying/backup faster?

Thanks

A:Win7 install - fast copy/backup during install (harddisk failure)

Get Macrium reflect free on the pc your typing this from and have it make a usb recovery disk when it asks you too then boot to it on the laptop with your external drive also plugged in and then have it make an image of the d partition to your external. You can then erase both partitions in the windows installer and make a fresh one. When it is done you can install Reflect on the laptop and then you can mount that image with it for file transfer back. But if your install is failing it might be your disk is just to far gone at this point in which case you should image your data so you have it anyways.

from 8 pro 64bit (with media centre) to 8.1, tried many times, no luck, always end up getting the same error code 0x20017, then rolled back to 8, every driver has been updated and there no external driver whatsoever, any help, please.

A:0xC1900101 - 0x20017 error while updating?

Hello wgan,

Is your Windows drive encrypted by chance?

If so, you'll need to decrypt it first, then update to 8.1. Afterwards, you could encrypt it again if you like.

Hope this helps,

HI.
I've got a Dell Inspiron 660S that I'm trying to update to W8.1 from W8.0 and I keep getting this error every time I try.

Here is what I have done so far:

uninstalled speccy, avast
updated all legacy programs
updated all store apps except Microsoft Solitaire and Photos (they refuse to update)
ran Windows Update - took everything except .Net Frmwk 4 and Skype
ran disk cleanup, making sure to delete all temporary files
checked the prefetch folder and it's at 0 bytes

Having problems with DISM:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth doesn't complete
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth doesn't complete

Hi, simrick. On break and have but a few minutes.
I know you're good friends with Wyn. I remember and ask her why she was not able to upgrade a machine from 8 to 8.1. I think it had to do with the processor? Check the SecurAble program in the "Installation" section about PAE, NX, and SSE type processors here: Suggested Steps To Take Installing And Setting Up Windows 8
Have you tried upgrading via the Store? Is there a link there? If not there is an update that does so. Shawn should have it in a tute here in 8F.

Those broken files concerning the Store concern me. Is there a install log file of the failed install on your machine? If so, look in there.
Never heard or seen anyone installing with an ESD to ISO with 8 to 8.1, (migfht not be possible with OEM key?) just a fresh install with ISO downloaded from MS site. Check.this out: Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 ISO - Download or Create
Are all drivers up to date? You might want to disable startup items and unplug any unnecessary devices before installing.
Have you tried Upgrade Assistant? Upgrade Assistant: FAQ - Windows Help
That's all I can think of for now. I'll try to check up on you later. I have pool league tonight though. If not, tomorrow morning.

Sorry, we couldn't complete the update to Windows 8.1. We've restored your previous version of Windows to this PC.

The funny thing is that a few weeks ago I already updated to windows 8.1 but because of a faulty driver and not being able to boot into safe mode I had to renew my windows and downgrade to windows 8.0. But now I can't seem to update to windows 8.1 anymore. I installed all the windows updates even the optional ones. So I did a factory reset and uninstalled everything that didn't seemed necessary for windows so the update would go smoother. I found a toshiba page with a tutorial to how to update to 8.1 and it told me to uninstall the following:

Genesys Logic
Intel PROSet
Intel Wireless Display
Realtek-audio driver
TOSHIBA PC Health Monitor
Realtek WLAN driver
Realtek Bluetooth Filter driver

and on another page it told me to uninstall anything related with toshiba so I did all that and these are programs I currently have:

Windows 10 1511 will not update to 1607 by any method. Updates always complete to 100% then revert. Computer is a Dell Vostro 1720.

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."

I have found several threads about this error, and it seems most likely that there is a driver conflict of some kind. I have looked at the setuperr.log from $WINDOWS.~BT/Sources/Panther/ directory but I do not see what is causing the error. Can anyone help with guidance on this?

Which is similar to the error displayed during the initial Windows 10 update except that the error shown was 0x1900101 - 0x20000. Back then a BIOS update that became available that fixed the issue. We check for a new BIOS, but all notebooks have the latest BIOS already installed v. F.41 from 9/19/2016. All other systems including other none HP AMD computers upgraded just fine.

Hi. I get the above error message halfway through an XP re-install (which I decided to do when my machine wouldn't boot up properly) and the reason is "the handle is invalid". The installation continues for about 25 minutes, then it stops and starts over, asking for the product key again. I've tried the Recovery Module from Safe Mode, but it goes to the C:\Windows prompt, and I'm not sure what to do next.
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
 

A:INF install failure

Boot from your XP CD and try doing a recovery boot from the CD instead of from safe mode. (In order to boot from the CD, the CD-rom drive must be the first boot device listed in your computer's BIOS; if it isn't, you need to change the boot device order so that it is. .)

Once you have booted from the CD, it will give you a few options - choose "R," which is the recovery boot.

Hope this helps.

Hi there
First things.

1) are you doing a Windows UPDATE or installing from new via a downloaded iso.
2) Is the machine set with UEFI BIOS.
3) GPT or MBR disks being used.

The answers to these questions will determine the possible causes of failure you have in installing W8.1.

To see if your machine is UEFI check the BIOS.

To see if a disk is GPT go into command mode and type DISKPART. then LIST DISK and you'll see a little asterix (*) against GPT disks as in my screenshot here.
