Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit
Dell XPS 630i, 4GB ram
Unable to upgrade from 9926 to 10041. Errors:
- 0xc0000017, "There isn't enough memory available to create a ramdisk device."
- 0xc1900101 - 0x20017, "Couldn't update to Windows 10 Technical Preview"
When attempting to upgrade via Windows Update, it informs me to reboot the computer to start the upgrade. Upon rebooting, immediately after POST a Recovery screen appears with error 0xc0000017, "There isn't enough memory available to create a ramdisk device.", with options press Enter to try again, F8 to for Startup options for F9 to load another operating system. Enter and F8 does nothing... the screen flickers and shows me the Recovery screen again. F9 takes me back to 9926, and once at the desktop I'm greeted with the "Couldn't update to Windows 10 Technical Preview" screen with error 0xc1900101 - 0x20017.
I attempted to do the install via USB. Booting from USB and choosing to upgrade, it told me I had to do the upgrade from WIndows. Back in 9926, I ran setup.exe off of the USB device and it proceeded to prepare to install, etc. It then rebooted my PC to continue installing. Again, immediately after POST, the sequence described above happened (0xc0000017, etc).
Doing some research, I've tried the following things based on other suggestions for this or similar errors, but none have worked:
- Unplug all USB devices
- Uninstall Hyper-V (I do not have that installed)
- Uninstall anti-virus software (other than Windows Defender, I do not have any installed)
Doing a fresh install is... undesirable. Any thoughts?
