    Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64

    Windows 10 Enterprise 64 bit RTM doesn’t boot


    I tried to install Windows 10 Enterprise 64 bit RTM on a Samsung laptop with i5 processor, 4MB Ram; currently I run the same of 8.1.

    When I turn on the computer with the bootable USB stuck in I am prompted 'Press any key to boot from USB' and when I do the Windows logo appears, all good so far. However, the swirling circle of small stars does not appear under the logo, as it always does while booting, and accordingly nothing happens. Afterwards I can't even turn off the computer, the only way to kill it is to remove both the plug and the battery.

    When I start the setup from running Windows, everything goes apparently fine. The system checks for updates and for all requirements, then installs. When finished, it says the pc will be restarted in a few minutes. Then, however only the logo appears, the swirling stars do not, and no reboot. Then, however, unlike trying directly from the USB, I can turn off the pc. When I restart I get an error message, the installation failed, the system is set back to its initial state, then:

    0xC19000101 – 0x20017
    The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with error during BOOT operation

    What to do?
    Thanks.

    Hello Georgey Welcome to the Ten Forums! Interesting problem but likely explained.

    With an edition like the Enterprise RTM you are looking more so at a more advanced server type form of Windows intended for corporate not home pc use! The ball game changes when you enter into the IT Dept.s from that of your laptop or desktop sitting at home! The entire set up of this type of edition is handled by the IT dept.s the various companies either make sure to have or have someone come in to handle setups and maintain things.

    I can see where it would still be an interesting project in order to have a good lookover! But you have to expect a few disappointments if you are trying to run it for the desktop platform.

    Thanks.
    I'm happy with the Enterprise 8.1, 64 bit on my laptop and I had no problem when upgrading from 8 to 8.1.
    I have a lot of programs and all those personal settings, preferences, I would hate to start from scratch with a blank Windows. So, if there is a way, I'd like to upgrade to the same edition of 10.

    I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise on my laptop, didn't need an IT guy to set it up. Works just like 10 Pro once installed and setup. You do get prompted to join a Domain but don't have to. I'm running mine on my home Workgroup no problem. I did my install from a USB thumb drive. I made it bootable via diskpart. Method two here, http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials...e-windows.html. Done that way, with diskpart, the same thumb drive can be used to install in Legacy mode or UEFI Mode. I did a clean install. Where did you obtain your install media? Maybe you have a corrupted image.

    I downloaded the setup file from
    Windows 10 Enterprise VL RTM 32 / 64 Bit ISO Download
    and created the USB by both Rufus and Universal-usb-installer. I will try diskpart too, thanks, and if you downloaded it from elsewhere, please tell me where.

    Not an official source as far as I can tell. Why Enterprise and how do you plan on activating it? Other than the Enterprise trial version, the only other official source is MSDN. There was an Enterprise Insider preview version but I can't seem to find it now. Everything links to the 90 day trial.

    Yes sir, initially I tried the evaluation version. I downloaded it from the official MS site as well as from another and experienced the same. Actually I asked for help in the previous forum.
    Windows 10 Enterprise installer won't load
    Then I found this website with the RTM.

    There must be some issue in my laptop, maybe some preferences in the BIOS, any idea about that?

    You could try resetting your BIOS to fail safe defaults. That may increase your boot time depending on what boot order it sets. After you get Windows 10 installed, if you get it installed, set the hard drive as first boot device to speed things back up. Other issues are, is your BIOS UEFI? If yes, is your install media UEFI compatible? https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/?filter[2]=Installation%20and%20Setup

    Thank you, this must be the clue. I'm not familiar with going that deep, could you please tell more in detail how to do that and check on UEFI?

    May I ask why you are running the Enterprise version? And who installed it? Enterprise is usually used a corporate setup. How are you going to activate the new install? There is no free upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise by the way.
