Windows 10 Installation Error [Error Code: C1900101-40017]

It's been a frustrating couple of days, and I'm almost ready to completely give up. I've been trying to upgrade to Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire all-in-one computer. However, after 70% of the installation, the screen just goes black with no cursor or anything. After waiting hours for something to happen, I just forcefully had to shut down the computer by pressing down the Power button. 

The Get Windows 10 app is just broken, using Windows Update to install Windows 10 results in the same error (black screen). After the previous version of windows is restored, I get this error message:

Then I tried installing using the Media Creation Tool, which resulted in the same black screen. After my computer was restored, I got this message:

I've been patiently trying to install Windows 10 for so long now, please help!

I've had the exact same problem with the exact same error code, and I've been trying to upgrade to Win10 for about a week now.  I've tried clean boot, disconnect all USB devices, even disconnecting my SATA optical drive, to no effect.

I've pretty much given up, and I won't even try to upgrade the other PCs in my household.

I'm having the same error with a BSOD in one of the reboots during the instalation (about 80-90%). Can we have a solution, please?

This is exactly the same error I have. I also get a BSOD as well saying DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.

I've tried the installation multiple times (at least 7 now) with all of the standard fixes, and nothing has worked.

Here's what worked for me. Apparently the Windows 10 installation isn't as immune to errors as Windows 8.1 OS. I noticed that as I booted my 8.1, I got a very quickly flashed message on the screen, but it booted anyway. I had to take a video of the boot just to slow it down to see the message. It turned out to be an MBR Error 3 which means that the Master Boot Record was corrupted. A little research and I found a product I had that does modify this record, Acronis True Image 2015. I uninstalled this product, and then used a Windows 8.1 recovery disk to go into a command prompt where I was able to type bootrec /fixmbr to fix the MBR. You can also use bootrec /fixboot to fix the boot record.

Windows 10 installed without a hitch after that.

So advice is, even if your symptoms don't exactly match, use some tools to find out what is going on your 8.1 (or other) boot and if there is a problem (or not), use some technique, including a complete recovery of Windows with a repair option before you start the Windows 10 update. Do some research on products that might tamper with the boot process, and uninstall them so they can't redo what they did.

In fact I have same error code (4 times) with my old ACER with win 7.

But no problem with 2 others more recent ACER with win 8.1 so dont give up maybe?  

And I realy like win 10.

On ACER forum I found a comment about BIOS problem??

The last gasp effort seems to be on laptops and AIOs to do a reinstall, and lose EVERYTHING.  So you have to back up all files and make sure you know how to reinstall all the programs (I have some that no longer have sources, so, if I lose the installation...).
