windows 10 installation

Some Windows 10 users reported that they got the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error C1900101-20017 when they were installing Windows 10 on their PC.

To fix this issue, users tried to restart the PC, but it did not help the display was showing the same error message with code C1900101-20017.

This error looks to occur due to a faulty BIOS setting, so this BSOD issue can be resolved by  enabling UEFI Boot from the BIOS and disabling all overclocking options for the processor.

Here is how you do it:

Step 1. Start your last version of Windows and go to C: drive and delete $Windows.~BT folder and all the files stored in this folder.

Step 2. Go to C:/Windows/Software/Distribution/Download and delete all the files stored in this folder.

Step 3. Installing Windows 10 by upgrading the previous version is not always working good, I would recommend to do a clean installation of Windows 10. Download the ISO file from Microsoft’s official website. After downloading the ISO file, create a bootable USB drive, wiht Microsoft Media Creation tool or Rufus tool.

Step 4. Once you got the bootable USB drive with Windows 10, you will have to go to BIOS menu. Reboot your computer and once the display appears, quickly tap multiple times the F12 or Delete key to bring up the BIOS menu.

Step 5. Check to have Disabled all overclocking options for your processor. Enable UEFI Boot from the BIOS, which can be found under the Boot section of the BIOS screen.

Step 6. From BIOS menu check Fast Boot to be disabled, so your computer will boot from other media devices.

Step 7. Reboot the computer and boot the USB flash drive with Windows 10, complete the steps and you will have Windows 10 on your computer.
