    kernel_security_failure / c1900101-30018 BSOD on Win 10 upgrade


    Hello All,

    This is an issue I have been fighting since the beginning of the Windows 10 Release. I have tried the "unplugging devices" and the :removing the Anti-virus" tips and tricks, but still do not have any luck. Ive tried many times to upgrade, but keep getting the same error. I am going from Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10, the upgrade process makes it to 33%, then gives the "kernel_security_failure", then reverts back to windows 7. Once back, Windows Update will prompt me with the C1900101-30018 Error. All of my searches have turned up the same, repetitive solutions. Im hoping someone will be able to tell me what I'm doing wrong. I do not currently have a graphics card, and am using the onboard HDMI port if that helps.

    Thank you in Advance!

     System File Check

    Please try following:
    • Open an admin command prompt
    • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
    • When it finished reboot your system
    • Open again an admin command prompt
    • Enter sfc/scannow again

    If sfc/scannow says "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
    System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.
