"Failed in SECOND_BOOT phase ... error during MIGRATE_DATA operation" Get this message with every attempt to update from 10074 to 10122 or 10125

UPDATE ... UPDATE ...UPDATE  .....    May have nailed the cause of the update failures to Charter Cable's anti-virus.  Among other changes Tuesday was uninstalling Charter's anti-virus.  The next attempt to upate above 10074 succeeded.  Today, I started a re-install of Charter's app and it caused the OS to crash and the failure message on a lite blue screen included a splash of white streaks, identical to all earlier fails to update to build 10122.  Therefore, my thought now is that the Charter Cable app is not compatible with Win 10 beyond build 10074.

Now, the latest build works again following a reboot and the anti-virus is back to Windows Defender.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below,  the issue that inspired the original post:

After the automatic reinstall of 10074 after the failed update the popup reads 0x1900101 - 0x4000D.

Plug-in card GPU is AMD HD6450 running two of the three displays.  The other is on the Intel CPU's 4000 GPU.  At the point of failure notification two displays turn on with a blue background and one of them has a half-dozen horizontal white streaks.  So, at that point there seems to be an obvious GPU issue.   The displays are eMachines 900x1440.

All previous Win 10 builds since the 1st have been trouble-free without upgrade hiccups.  Win 10 works very well as the production OS since about November.  Some of the wide variety of apps are 15 years old and run better than ever before on this Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H main board.

The graphics driver is currently AMD's 15.200.1023.3.  Several earlier versions work as well with the HD 6450 and Intel i5.

Once the bugs are squashed,  Win 10, it appears, will continue to be my new best friend.  But, I'm dying with the wait to see 10125!  I'll take 10122 and two Aspirin in the meantime.   Rufus is getting plenty of attention and use.

Have now, finally, updated from 10174.  Suspects of success include:

building a thumb drive to boot an .ISO of the desired build

removing 130+ downloaded apps and data files,

uninstalling more than a half-dozen unused apps

uninstalling Charter Cable's anti-virus.  Earlier failed updates only had the tool turned off with Task Manager.  Turned on Windows Defender.

Innocent bystanders seem to include the wireless Logitech mouse and keyboard and maybe the AMD driver 15.200.1023.3 (dated 5/14/2015) working two displays with the 3rd working off the i5 Intel 4000 internal GPU.  Nothing was changed about those before the successful update.

However, those possible innocents could have been guilty, but MS may have rehabilitated them with downloaded fixes when this finally successful upgrade from 10074 asked to check for changes to download early in the update process.

Neither of these suggestions worked for me and now my Microsoft mouse needs to be turned off and on every five minutes to get it working. Can you provide a step-by-step resolution to this error? Enough people are having this same issue that there should be a formal guide to correct the problem. Thank you.

1.  Remove every USB device you have plugged into your machine except for keyboard and mouse.

2.  Uninstall your anti virus software (don't just disable it, remove it - you can reinstall it later)

3.  Open MSCONFIG (start - run - msconfig)  then select the SERVICES tab, check the box HIDE ALL MICROSOFT SERVICES, then disabled (uncheck) all of the services that remain.  * In my case I left the Nvidia Driver service checked.  Next disable all startup programs on the STARTUP tab.

4.  If you have any windows 10 drivers for Display, I would suggest to install them prior to upgrade.  Everything else can be done post upgrade.

5.  Reboot the computer

6.  After reboot, login and start the Windows 10 upgrade process.  If you are using the windows update method wait until Windows downloads the installer and verifies it 100%.... Then unplug your network cable (disconnect from the internet) - leave it disconnected until you have successfully installed Windows 10.

If you are installing from the ISO/USB option, disconnect from the internet (pull your network cable out) and then start the upgrade.  Do not plug it back in until the upgrade is complete.

BE PATIENT - EXTREMELY PATIENT...  
In my case after the First Phase reboot the installer sat at about 19% for about 45 minutes.  In the Second Phase reboot, it finally got past 63% and after that it flew past the Third Phase reboot with no problems.  Once it booted into Windows 10, I made sure to wait until I had actually logged into the desktop before I reconnected to the internet and began the process of installing missing drivers (there will be a few most likely).  

If these steps do not allow the upgrade to finish....  Your only other option is to perform an upgrade without keeping your files, apps and settings (clean install).

Outside of the installation pains... Windows 10 so far is ALL IT'S BEEN ADVERTISED TO BE!  Great Job Microsoft - The OS is exactly what 8 SHOULD have been.  (Now fix the damn installer - I've got 6 more PC's to do this on.)

I struggled with this too for a few days. I tried all the drivers / BIOS update, clean boot, etc. with no success. Finally, I rooted cause the problem to the use of another HDD for Public and Document folders. I have small SSD for C: and a bigger HDD for all the documents. Somehow during the phase that Windows 10 is migrating user data, it does not like those folders being outside of C:. 

My solution was to change those folders back to their original location in C: (even if they're empty folders, that's fine too). Just right click on them, select Properties and then Location tab. After all "special" folders are dealt with, Windows 10 upgrade no problem at all. 

After finishing Windows upgrade, then you can change the locations of those folders back to another drive as in before the upgrade.

I hope this helps a few people in the same situation.

Wow! after trying for so long to sort out my Windows 10 upgrade fail with this message,  it all came done to Libraries being set to have other locations included that were on another drive. removing these back to default C locations only allowed the window 10 upgrade with no problem. thank you thank you NimNik1111 for your snipet of advice here. It worked a treat!!

Hello,

would this include the pagefile.sys and swapfile.sys ? I have the same configuration, a SSD (C:\) with the OS and Apps and a HDD (D:\) with documents and files and I moved the pagefile.sys and swapfile.sys on the HDD.

I don't know if I have other folders (the one that Windows 10 thinks they should be on C:\). 

Is there a way to find out this ? how ? By tha way, i do not have a Location tab under Properties for folders in Windows Explorer. Oh, I have just descovered that for SOME folder on C:\ there is a Location tab.

thank you

I did have my videos and downloads folder redirected to my 2nd hard drive in my system and suspected this was my issue.  I defaulted them back to my C:\ Drive.  Rebooted, AV was off and tried again.  Failed in the exact same place at 75% but this time it just didn't give me the error about migrating data.  So I'm still stuck in the same place with no error message to go off of now?  Anybody?  I'd really like to get this update out of the way and I'm tired of spending an hour and half each attempt just for it to fail at the end AGAIN.
