Q: Windows 10 Anniversary Upgrade error 0xc1900101-0x20017

Can anyone help me with this error? I get it every time when trying to get version 1607. I have checked many times; this is not related to any drivers but to something I do not understand. Here are included my Panther and Rollback folders.

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.)

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?

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.

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:

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,



Background: PC is a custom build. (intel i7 Z77 @ 3.5 GHz, Nvidia GTX 970, 16GB RAM) I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 without any problems in November 2015. One thing I'll mention now that I'll come back to later: Due to my amateurish build, there are some idiosyncrasies with the disks on the computer. There are 4 HDDs in the tower and one SSD. One of the HDDs is not functional but that has been the case for a while and is not germane to the problem. The system drive is C:/, the SSD. However in Disk Management, the SSD is listed as the final disk, disk 3. Disk 0 is my largest harddrive, a 1TB number. The System Reserved partition is on Disk 0. When I run diskpart -> list volume in the command prompt, the SSD is volume 4. The System Reserved partition is volume 0, and volume 1 is the 1TB HDD where the SR partition resides. I have just noticed that when I go to System Information, the boot device is given as volume 1, as opposed to volume 4, the system drive.





So, the problem:



I used the upgrade assistant to try and upgrade Win 10 version 10586 to the Anniversary Edition, latest build.

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

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:

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!

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

Hi, many people with your problem blame Avast for preventing Windows 8.1 installation - "Couldn't update to Windows 8.1 - 0xC1900101 - 0x40017" - Microsoft Community. You can try to uninstall Avast and run the Windows 8.1 upgrade.

Good luck, werty

I receive a similar error again on our HP Pavilion Notebooks with AMD CPU when updating to Windows 10 Creator update as last time when updating to Windows 10. Our office has a few of the 17-G133cl notebook computers and all of them display the same error message: We couldn't install Windows 10 - 0xC1900101 - 0x20017 - The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation. 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. Any ideas what could cause this issue with that type of system?

Asus Portable Sonicmaster V500CA. Win8/8.1 upgraded to Win10 version 1511.(latest version as of yesterday. Yesterday the computer downloaded and attempted to install 1607. Hung for several hours at a black screen with white dots going in circle, prior to any login. In other words no login. Did some research here and pressed the boot button. Long story short computer finally went to "restoring your previous version of windows" which it did.

Today, Tues Sep 13, did more research and used media creation tool to download to usb and booted the computer from that to install 1607. Same results as above. Got the 1511 version restored. Tried again with fast boot, software and bios, turned off. Same results as above except this time I did get this message "0xC1900101-0x40017 install failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase with an error during boot operation". I have looked that up, all instructions relate to 8.1 upgrade to 10.

I have the latest Bios for this computer. I have yet to try with wifi/internet off. Have upgraded to the lastest video driver - Intel HD Graphics 4000 driver 10.18.10.4276 with a generic pnp monitor.

The computer now just did updates for 1511 and my winver is 1511-10586.589. Have not yet tried another 1607 upgrade because these updates started.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi, I am having the same trouble as everyone else with this windows 10 ver 1709 update. 
It makes no difference if I try to use the media download tool to create a iso file or to install via windows update it is the same problem.
if downloading via windows update the update starts off ok, but when it is in the process of installing on ANY pc the install stops and the Laptop/Desktop just freezes.
Microsoft has yet again shot them selves in the foot. It's not as if I am a idiot, i'm Comp Tia++ and Microsoft certified, so what is Microsoft going to do about this?

My desktop pc is running Win 10 Vers. 1511.  I've tried repeatedly to install the Anniversary Upgrade Vers. 1607 - always without success, with the error code 0x80070005.  A Microsoft technician queried whether the pc is able to install the Anniversary Upgrade.  I never thought of this as a problem and I hope someone can help me to find the answer.

I'm afraid I took advantage of the 'free' Windows 10 upgrade last year; biggest mistake I've ever made, but I've learned to live with it. But today there were multiple problems and now I am effectively frozen out of my laptop, a Vostro 3550. I know that it's not one of the pcs tested by Dell for the operating system and I'm (sort of) OK with that. But a rather rude and spectacularly unhelpful Microsoft technician told me very forcibly that my laptop is 'incompatible' with Windows 10 and that therefore there is nothing they can do to help me and nor will they now try as it is pointless as I can't even use the laptop with the new upgrade of 10. Surely that can't be correct? I have grown to pretty much hate Microsoft in the last 12 months but can they really have decided that my laptop is obsolete? And not told us? Anything anybody can tell me here will be greatly appreciated. And I'll try to gain access to my laptop again...

I have held off going from Win 7 to Win 10 for a number of reasons, including several hardware upgrades over the last 6 months. (I actually have one more hardware upgrade I would like to do, going to a M.2 drive once a 500 GB drive comes out, which may or may not happen soon.) Not in a hurry as Win 7 is working fine.

So, browsing this forum occasionally, I see the Windows 10 Anniversary Update is coming out soon-ish, no firm date. Plus, the end of the "free" upgrade period is also coming up.

Is there any advantage to waiting and seeing if the Windows 10 Anniversary Update comes out first, and performing the upgrade on that version as opposed to doing an upgrade now, and then updating with the anniversary edition? It is possible that the free upgrade period could be extended a bit as well (not starting a rumor, just thinking) that could allow this to happen.

A:Upgrade from Win 7 and Windows 10 Anniversary Update edition

Perhaps, upgrade now and get to know how Windows 10 works, so that by the time " anniversary update" comes along, you will enjoy it more.

Free upgrade period appears to be unchanged, at least for now. Nothing is definite. Never say never.

Hi,
I have a Dell Latitude E6410 that has windows 10 (Build 10240) and has been trying to upgrade to the Anniversary version 1607 for months now.  Every time it fails after the first reboot.  A window dos appears but is too quick to read and then I end up at a blue screen complaining about hardware not being available and then I can pick F9 to boot into alternative OS, which just happens to be windows and then it rolls back the upgrade.
I have tried the Media Creation Tool method also and that did not work either.
I am at a loss on how to get past the upgrade.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Mark

Hi,
I previously upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10, but the Anniversary Update will not complete properly and I've been stuck on v1511 for a few months now.
The installation goes through most of the steps but on reboot it just goes to a black screen with the dell logo and the endless spinning dots.  The error message after rolling back is: 0xC1900101 - 0x30017 ("The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during BOOT operation".
I've tried the following based on other forum posts, unfortunately without success:
1)  Leaving this running overnight.
2)  Unplugging all USB devices.
3)  Installing upgrade from USB drive.
4)  Installing from a clean boot.
5)  Installing with wireless adaptor disabled.
In each case it hangs at the spinning dots.  After a few forced reboots the upgrade rolls back fairly quickly to the previous version.  One thing I haven't tried is a clean install, as if it fails I'll not have anything to roll back to.  Also it's unclear if my existing Windows 10 license will carry over.
Any help appreciated.

I just joined this forum today, so I am brand new.

Both my desktop and laptop were Windows 7 systems that I successfully updated over a year ago to Windows 10.

The desktop never changed the version showing when I use the winver command - still Windows 10 Build 10240. The system was an upgraded desktop purchased on ebay from a company that refurbs and upgrades the computer.

I tried to upgrade both of them to the new Anniversary version of Windows 10. The laptop updated perfectly the first time. It is also a HP system. The laptop version shows 1607 OS Build 14393.82

I have not had any errors.

I am not a hardware person, so I spent a long time researching how to run reports to answer the questions for the System Specs. I am attaching the reports from SiSoftware Sandra and CPU-z in case I did not correctly report some of the details.

I hope that someone can help me.

If not, can you tell me if I explained this well enough to ask Microsoft for help? I am a bit intimidated by that.

Thank you so much in advance,

Sally

HelloThanks for reading my problem.My son's HP stream 14 runs windows 10.I know disk space is tight but up until now we have managed.Windows has a new update, they call it the anniversary edition 14943.It needs 8GB space.I managed to get it to 8.2 GB but still it wouldnt run.Now it has popped back to 6GB.I have uninstalled everything I can and ave run disk clean up millions of times including removal of windows updates.I have even turned off hibernation,This update refuses to go aheadI think by virtue of the disk size, this HP Stream14 is unable to accomodate windows OS updates anymore. any suggestions welcome, but please bare in mind, I have researched this topic top to bottom for hours and hours and have come up with nothing. When upgradeing from win8.1 >win10, I was allowed to make use of a flash disk to supplement the install process. But with this upgrade, the option is not available. Thanks in advance for listening Joe PS HP, if you are listening,if this refuses to proceed, you have lost a customer for life!

Hi ,
after windows 10 anniversary upgrade installation i ran Disk Management and found a new created Recovery Partition as shown in picture . 845 MB , Healthy (Recovery partition). Is it necessary or can I delete it ?
The Upgrade installation has been absolutely successful , no problem at all.

A:windows 10 Anniversary upgrade created a recovery partition

You can check which recovery partition is registered with the command reagentc /info from elevated command prompt. You'll see something like this:
Code:

REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.

To find which partition the number above you need to check diskpart as disk management doesn't show all partitions (the MSR partition specifically which is partition 3 normally). Again from elevated command prompt:
Code:

Since upgrading Windows 10 Pro to with the Anniversary update my screen sort of changes tint from light to a sort of yellow tint...  The image stays clear and does not flicker...  I think I have seen this before due to Windows/Intel trying to adjust the brightness of the display to save power - although this might not be the cause of my problem...  Things were perfect before the anniversary update, anyone else seen this?  Thanks, Peter

Upgraded my HP Pavilion 500 PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 without a problem and have been running updates without issues. Now trying to run 1607 anniversary update keep getting "Unable to update reserved partition".  Whe I check using "diskmgmt.msc", check properties, right click on Disk 0, I see 100 MB and 100% free. I would have thought there would be a better solution than to go to a web site that wished to sell you software and provide a complex set of instructions. Any ideas??

Dear all,
here's a weird issue with an Optiplex 3030 AIO on a customer site...
The system was initially bought with Windows 7 Pro SP1 and back then in late 2015
updated to Windows 10 Pro. Everything was OK so far with this setup - no issues at all.

However - this specific 3030 AIO tries to apply the anniversary update (1607) as well - but fails.
When it's doing this from within windows itself it reboots automatically (as part of the update process)
and starts applying the update - but will hang there at 30% for days (started update at friday afternoon - met customer at monday... and the Optiplex 3030AIO still showed the spinning circles
at 30 percent.
We tried this 3 times within the last 8 weeks (and cleaned up SoftwareDistribution\ folder after each fail) with no success in installing the anniversary update. After a cold reboot - Windows 10 rolls back
to the previous version and keeps working fine until the Windows Update magic decides that it's time
for the automatic upgrade again...
When this happened for the 4th time (earlier this week) we removed this Optiplex 3030 AIO from
the customer site and thought it would be good to reinstall from scratch -  using the latest installation media (USB) offered by the most current media creation tool.

Problem - we cannot even do a clean install of the anniversary release - although DELL claims that
the Optiplex 3030 AIO is fully supported (see SLN297954 in DELL knowledge base).
When doing so it never finishes ... Read more

8.1 install error 0xC1900101-0x40019 and 0x80070652 and Windows 8.1 installation failed and reverted back to Windows 8.0

I'm lucky the computer even came back to life. I have an Intel HD Graphics 4000 video card, so the review from ADRStudio replied on February 15, 2014 on page 18

could address this problem but I'm not so sure. I can't find the Win 8.1 drivers at HP for my machine, they only offer Windows 7 or 8.

I've been reading Latest Win 8.1 ISO "Breaks" System Image Functionality

and on my dual boot laptop with Win 7, this may be a fatal error when trying to install Win 8.1 because 8.1 adds another System partition and kills off the one I had been using.

Considering the overwhelming severity of this problem and how widespread & long-going it is, I'm gonna stick to Win 8.0 for now.

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.
