I've been trying to install Windows 10 on my RV511 running Windows 8.1 (Pro) since last night. But every time my laptop restarts after "Your PC will restart in a few moments", it gets stuck in the Windows logo (with no loading animation at the bottom). The only way to recover from this is to manually turn off my laptop and then turn it back on. Upon doing this, I get this message after logging in:
We couldn't install Windows 10
We've set your PC back to the way it was right before you started installing Windows 10.
0xC1900101 - 0x20017
The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation
I have checked the md5 checksum of the iso file and it checks out. I have also tried doing what others said in this forum (for example this one) but nothing seems to work for me. Right now I'm using a freshly installed copy of Windows 8.1 and so, there are no extra software (or apps) installed and I've also turned off Windows Defender.
One more thing. I have disabled automatic updates and I always skip downloading and installing updates during setup because I have a poor Internet connection. Could that be the problem?
For some reason, my "setuperr" file is empty. So, is there any (other) way to find out what is causing Windows 10 to not install?
My RV511's specs are: Intel Core i3-380M clocked at 2.53 GHz, 5.8 GB RAM, 298 GB HDD (109 GB free in C drive) and Intel GMA HD Graphics (so, no "real" graphics card). As I said earlier, I just did a clean installation of Windows 8.1, so there are no 'extra' drivers or programs installed.
The name of the downloaded iso file is:
I'm really eager to use Windows 10 and I have stopped all my work and projects for this. If anyone can please help me out, it will be greatly appreciated! If there is any more info you need to know, then please tell me. Thank you!
