      See Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18941 for features, fixes, and known issues.

      There is a special section for those who have experienced install failures with error code c1900101 on builds 18936 or 18941.

      I started the installation at noon today. Around 3 pm I had to leave and the install was still running. It had appeared to start at “getting ready” three times. I decided to let it run while I was gone. My PC is set to never sleep when plugged in but to turn off the display after 15 minutes. When I returned about 6:30 pm the install was still running. When I go the display going the install went to the download phase then “Installing”. It finally finished successfully short before 8 pm. IMO, this is an excessive amount of time for a Win10 install.

      Microsoft releases Windows 10 20H1 Build 18941, but warns the installation may fail or cause your PC to get stuck in a boot loop

      A small number of Windows Insiders attempting to install Build 18936 and Build 18941 may experience install failures with error code c1900101 due to a compatibility bug with a storage driver on their device. The PC will attempt to install, fail, and successfully roll back to the currently installed build on the PC. Attempted re-tries to install the build, either manual or automatic, will not bypass this issue. A fix is forthcoming, but there are no known workarounds currently.

      Note: By default, the update will attempt to install (3) times. Users may pause updates if they experience this issue and want to bypass the re-try attempts.

      There are also certain rare cases in which a PC may get stuck in a “boot loop” (repeatedly rebooting over and over without getting to the OS) due to this issue. If your PC has gotten into this state — you can follow these steps to get your PC back into a working state:….
