If I search for

Windows 10 - error 0xc1900200 I get

Not every PC is cut out for an upgrade to Windows 10, and if you’re seeing error codes 0xC1900200 - 0x20008 or 0xC1900202 - 0x20008, those could be Microsoft’s way of telling you so.

The easiest way to check your PC’s upgrade eligibility is through the Get Windows 10 app:

  1. Click the Windows update icon on the lower-right corner of the desktop.
  2. In the Get Windows 10 app, click the options button (which looks like three horizontal lines) on the upper-left corner.
  3. Click Check your PC under the Getting the upgrade section.

This section should tell you whether your PC is fully compatible with Windows 10. For more information on the compatibility report, see this help page.

Ideally your computer should have this minimum specs.

CPU: 1GHz

  • Graphics: Must support DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
  • Display resolution: 800x600
  • RAM: 1GB for 32-bit systems, 2GB for 64-bit
  • Free storage: 16GB for 32-bit systems, 20GB for 64-bit

    Finally this is the forum for Windows 10 Insider Preview builds.

    Answer

    Hi Windows 7 is not a very good candidate to upgrade to Windows 10....a better choice would be Windows 8.1 since they basically share the same engine....

    now your issue....your 'Upgrade' is/has not gone well...   I mostly blame it on your computer hardware compatibility....I had to do a 'Clean Install' of Windows 10 on my brothers Win 7 system.

    Can you tell us exactly @ what stage you are at now?
