    Windows 10 Upgrade Failure - 0xC1900101 - 0x30018


    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

    I am having exactly the same problem, I am installing from USB onto Windows 8.1 Pro, as the administrator (local) outside of the normal domain. It gives no warning of this error until it has been through most of the install, I have tried multiple times same issue occurs.

    Sorry just got back home a few minutes ago.

    I was told this is a driver issue and was able to fix it by uninstalling a few programs that start when my PC loads. Anti-Virus, AVG PC Tuneup, Spyshelter..

    Not sure which one fixed it as I uninstalled them all, afterwards the setup was good.

    Solved


    This worked for me:

    Download the windows 10 media onto a USB memory stick

    Turn off Windows Defender, any Wifi , disable firewall

    Install windows 10 from the USB memory stick

    Say no to "check for updates" untill after the W10 installation has completed

    I removed AVG PC Tune UP and all antivirus that were in the systems. It seems that was obstructing. Now using Windows 10
