    What kind of error are you getting? Are you doing an upgrade or clean install?

    Can you check your Disk Management and see how many 100 or 450MB partitions you have?

    If he has more than one System Reserve partition that may be a clue to his problem.
    I had one drive that had three SR partitions installed by previous failed attempts to install an O/S.
    Removed all three and no problem installing Windows.
    I don't think WinTP formats when it says it does???
    just a thought...............

    Can you tell us what kind of media you used to install the early builds with? Did you upgrade or clean install the builds. How are you try to procede? Downloading tp10041 or some other leeked build?

    I have tried clean installs, upgrading from the Insider site reformatting drives removing all patitions, tried a completely new SSD,
    rebuilt Windows 8.1 and tried all the above options after updating all Windows 8.1 updates. My PC is a SAmsung DP00A7A with i7 and 8g ram. I have been running Windows 8.1 on the PC with no hassles
    Error codes 0XC1900101-0X30017
    also "the installation failed in the FIRST-BOOT phase with an error during the BOOT operation."

    What surprises me is that the earlier builds I mentioned I had no problems so I would have thought the BIOS setting would be correct
    Thanks for any help

    See my post above..
    can you check your Disk Management applet and let us know the number of partitions or a screenshot of Disk Management?

    Right now you are running 8.1 can you please show us your disk management pic. Also are you burning a dvd or making a usb bootable drive to boot the iso. Something changed from the first build you installed. So start with that. A upgrade from 8. Or a clean boot from the ISO?

    USB to boot ISO. I have tried using setup from USB as well as clean installs It appears to be a Samsung problem as I have upgraded several other machines using clean installs as well upgrading using setup and saving all files etc
    These have included DELLS HP Lenovo some of them are quite old.
