Hello,

I'm trying to install windows 10 over my windows 7 OS (on my SSD) and Im running into the error message Critical Service Fail which then results in windows 7 being restored then on the desktop the error message "oxC1900101 - 0x40017 the intalltion failed in the SECOND_BOOT phase" appears.
I've tried deleting "$Windows.~BT" and "~WS" before trying again.
I want to keep all my previous files and settings otherwise I need help installing Windows 10.

Mobo: Asus z97-pro (wifi ac)

Thankyou

is this an in place upgrade or a fresh install? Seeing the free upgrade period is over you will need a license/product key to activate.

Something that a great deal of members fail to do is to backup their important data to removable media.  In this instance it would make it fairly easy to install Windows 10 and add your backed up data.

 

If you have the product code for Windows 10 you can use the Media Creation Tool to create Windows 10 installation media for a disc or flash drive.

 
There are three options, use the second option Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on different PC.
 
If you need instructions for doing the installation let us know.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

My only option at the moment is to do an in place upgrade, I made a bootable usb drive and booted to it with UEFI in bios but when I got to installing it whilst keeping my data it said that it isn't compatible and needs to be launched from the disk that windows is installed on.

To do in place upgrade you have to plug in usb and open it in your running Windows and double click on the setup.exe

I have no other usb's plugged in.
Are you saying I should take out the usb I use to install once the installation is finished but before it boots? Also my SSD is given 1st priority to boot to in the BIOS and The only other drives plugged in is my Hard Disk.

I had this happen while installing W10 on a friends pc back in June. He remembers after it reverted back to the W8.1, I updated all drivers including bios and ssd firmware and the upgrade completed. Have you installed the latest drivers?

 

Seeing you do have a license key, why not migrate your user info to your second hdd. Do a fresh install and migrate the user info back. Just follow these instructions on how to migrate https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824873.aspx. Be sure to give the file and the share full permissions.
