I am been trying to upgrade to Windows 10 since the update became available to my laptop but today it has been the 10th failed attempt to upgrade.
The update downloads and installs on my laptop but when it comes to what I call the final stage, where there is a percentage inside of a circle, the percentate can be from 3% to 10% and then my laptop shuts down completely. I will sit here for 30 minutes thinking it will reboot (everytime) but it does not.
I will then press the on button and my laptop starts up but I get a sentence of words stating that the system will go back to its previous windows software (8.1). Afterwards I get the following words in a popup window:
"Windows 10 Setup
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 - 0x2000C
The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during APPLY_IMAGE operation"
I sought advice thru the Microsoft Community but their advice has been to no avail.
I also read in the Microsoft Community several commentaries that the HP Envy is not compatible and/or the BIOS is not compatible.
I will truly appreciate your assistance to this matter.
I've had 4 remote sessions with Microsoft Techs over the past 3 days because of this same error. After 5 1/2 hours with "Marvin", (a level 2 tech) today, they said that they have learned that this is an "emerging issue" and scheduled a call back for two days from now to hopefully resolve it. At this time, they have no fix. They tried the ISO install and updated all drivers, which seems to have worked for some, but not me. So - waiting for Monday.
