    Anyone been able to upgrade a Lenovo Y530 laptop?


    Every time I try it I get a failure: C1900101-20017

    There are no official Windows 8.1 or 10 drivers for this laptop and no BIOS update.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had success with this laptop.

    Currently running Windows 7 Home X64 with 4GB ram and 350GB hard drive.

    I can't answer your question because I don't own a Y530. However, I got the same error when I upgraded my Samsung RC510 and it turns out that the problem is an incompatible Broadcom wifi card. After removing it, I can upgrade my RC510 to Win 10 without problem. Of course, other problem can also lead to the C1900101-20017 problem too, see this: windows 10 error code C1900101-20017 - Microsoft Community and find the post from SmokeyA. Good luck!

    I can't remove the Broadcom WiFi card as it's a laptop. I did uninstall if from Device Manager as I did not see any way to disable it in BIOS.

    I would try disabling the wifi in Device Manager, uninstall the wifi driver, and plug in an Ethernet cable and get the internet running on the Ethernet. Then re-try the upgrade. You may have to replace the wifi card.

    Replacing the WiFi card is a good idea. I'll see wwhat I have, probably a few Nvidia, Intel or even Dell WiFi cards laying around.

    Thanks.

    I think Lenovo as well as HP put wifi whitelist on their BIOS to prevent you from replacing the wifi card with 3rd party devices. In case your Lenovo model has whitelist, you have to find ways to remove the whitelist by flashing a modified BIOS. Fortunately my Samsung RC510 accept 3rd party wifi card. I have been using an usb wifi dongle for a few weeks before the new card arrived.

    Hmmm, I could just remove the card until the upgrade is done. Maybe I'll try that.

    On a Dell laptop, I replaced the internal wifi card with a USB wifi. Search around and you can get really small USB wifi dongles that dosen't protrude very far.

    After you have successfully upgraded the laptop to Win 10, you can try putting the Broadcom wifi card back to the laptop and see if it works or not. Some people have successfully putting back the card and their laptops can boot up without problem. I don't have that luck though for my RC510.
