I've had the exact same issue. I get to 41% of Applying PC Settings and it throws this error -

"Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation."


I've tried disabling all startup items and services (non-MS) with MSCONFIG without success.
Asus mobo running Windows 8 Pro with 16GB ram, an SSD boot drive and nVidea graphics.

I've tried the installation at least 6 times now and it dies at the same place each time.

You may notice in my post that I stated -
"I've tried disabling all startup items and services (non-MS) with MSCONFIG without success."

MSCONFIG now uses the Task Manager to manage Startup Items (via a link).
I disabled All of them and also All non-MS services.

I read in a few other threads that Display Drivers should be updated.
All AV programs including Microsoft's Defender should be disabled.
All USB devices should be disconnected (except mouse & keyboard).

I'll try this later today and report back.

I have tried -

Stopping all non-Microsoft services
Stopping all startup programs
Disabling Windows Defender
Disabling Windows Firewall
Updating video drivers
Disconnecting all USB devices

Nothing has worked - it still throws the "Could not compete" error at 41% of Applying Settings
and shows
0xC1900101-0x3000D

after the rollback has completed

I was on with MS Live Chat for over 4 hours last night and still don't have this resolved. After the 3rd attempt to upgrade the rep must have gave up and closed the session. I didn't even receive an email detailing the session. I'm usually a pretty patient person, but this is really getting me frustrated...
