Error 0xC1900107 is a common error code encountered during the installation or upgrade process of Windows operating systems. It typically occurs when there are compatibility issues or conflicts with the existing software or hardware on the system. The error message associated with this code often reads: “The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation.”
Ensure that you have enough free disk space on your system drive (usually C:). Remove unnecessary files or programs to free up space before attempting the installation or upgrade.
Some software applications or device drivers might not be compatible with the new version of Windows. Check the manufacturer’s website for updated versions of your software or drivers that are compatible with the Windows version you are trying to install. Uninstall any incompatible software before proceeding with the installation.
Outdated or incompatible hardware can also cause this error. Check the manufacturer’s website for updated drivers or firmware for your hardware components, such as graphics cards, network adapters, or audio devices.
Temporarily disable any third-party antivirus or security software installed on your system. These programs can sometimes interfere with the installation process. Remember to re-enable them after the installation is complete.
Run the System File Checker (SFC) tool to scan and repair any corrupted system files. Open the Command Prompt as an administrator and enter the command “sfc /scannow” to initiate the scan.
Perform a clean boot to start Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This helps identify any software conflicts that may be causing the error. Instructions for performing a clean boot can be found on Microsoft’s support website.
Sometimes, the error can be temporary or caused by a specific glitch during the installation process. Restart your computer and attempt the installation or upgrade again to see if the error persists.
