Windows 10 upgrade setup failed with exit code 0xC1900200

1460

Most of the Organizations today are running Windows 7 OS on their computers. Looking at the stability and features of Windows 10, most of them are planning to do an upgrade of Windows 7 to Windows 10. Very recently I was working on upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10. In fact there is a post that is published to show In-place upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise with SCCM. I had installed Configuration Manager current branch version 1602. I deployed a task sequence that would do an in-place upgrade to Windows 10. But that didn’t go well and the task sequence failed. When i checked the log file i found that my Windows 10 upgrade setup failed with exit code 0xC1900200.

Here is the error message that I got :-

Troubleshooting :-

If you are planning to do in-place upgrades to migrate from Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 using System Center Configuration Manager task sequences then you must first try running a command that tells you whether you can do an in-place upgrade smoothly. To do this, SETUP.EXE includes a command line switch that tells it to “check for compatibility” but not actually perform the upgrade. You need to have the Windows 10 source media with you. The full command line would typically look something like this:

SETUP.EXE /Auto Upgrade /Quiet /NoReboot /DynamicUpdate Disable /Compat ScanOnly

Error Code – Here are the lists of the most common upgrade and installation errors and some things you can try to fix them.

Error CodeWays to fix it
0x80073712A file needed by Windows Update is likely damaged or missing.
0x800F0923This might indicate that a driver or other software on your PC isn’t compatible with the upgrade to Windows 10.
0x80200056This could mean that the upgrade process was interrupted because you accidentally restarted your PC or signed out of your PC. Try upgrading again and make sure your PC is plugged in and stays turned on.
0x800F0922This error might mean that your PC couldn’t connect to the Windows Update servers. If you’re using a VPN connection to connect to a work network, disconnect from the network and turn off the VPN software (if applicable) and try upgrading again. The error could also mean there isn’t enough free space in the System Reserved partition. You might be able to fix this problem by using third-party software to increase the size of the System Reserved partition.
0xC1900208 – 0x4000CThis could indicate that an incompatible app installed on your PC is blocking the upgrade process from completing. Check to make sure that any incompatible apps are uninstalled and then try upgrading again.
0xC1900200 – 0×20008 0xC1900202 – 0×20008This may signify that your PC doesn’t meet the minimum requirements to download or install the upgrade to Windows 10.
0x80070070 – 0×50011 0x80070070 – 0×50012 0x80070070 – 0×60000This likely indicates that your PC doesn’t have enough space available to install the upgrade. Free some space on the drive and try again.

Resolution – If you look at the above table, the error code 0xC1900200 translates to “PC doesn’t meet the minimum requirements to download or install the upgrade to Windows 10.” This was indeed correct. When i checked the memory of that machine, it was less than the required memory that was supposed to be. After increasing the memory of the machine, I did not face this error. I hope the above table helps you in understanding the cause of any other errors.
