Question Am having trouble upgrading windows. - 05-22-2017, 08:17 | posts: 2,753 | Location: M.K. England.

When I use the upgrade assistant it comes up with an error after 73%.

It says this error code 0xc1900200.

I've tried searching for an answer, but its just too confusing lol.

Please help.

Edit.
It just come up with this : We couldn't update to system reserved partition.

Also I am also running Windows 10 Pro 1607.

Are you confusing the system reserved partition which is usually about 100MBs with a recovery partition? That one is usually only present on oem systems. Here is another post about increasing the system reserved partition.

Can't you just merge the partition with the C: drive? Failing that boot up the Windows disc from the BIOS and format it with FDISK.

Can you access the drive and see it listed with the other partitions? Perhaps try moving it off and trying again. Probably an MBR file that's on there or something. Check for hidden files.

Am trying to upgrade my windows 10 from build 1607 to the latest build. And when I try it fails with error code 0xc1900200.

And from what I read it seems to be a problem with system reserve not being big enough??

Your reserve is only 16MB. Should be 100.

The boot partition would have been created when you installed windows so it still should be 100MB, or so. Try a Windows boot repair from the disk.

Is it still 16MB? Best thing to do would be to reinstall Windows on the C: drive but keep all the files and folders. You won't lose anything on the other partitions. Or do a clean install on C:.

Unable to convert. What would happen if I deleted it or wipe it?
And then re-run windows boot repair from the disk?

Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

Providing you can. Personally I would just move the files off that you need and delete all the drives and start a fresh with a clean Windows install. Maybe partition another drive to move stuff over to that you need.

Scorch666, recovery partition is the partition where recovery environment files are placed. You can add a drive letter to first parition labeled "Recovery" and look what it contains. Partition labeled as "reserved" usually is empty. In case your bug relates to the size of recovery partition, the way to enlarge it is follow (in Partition Master):
- move 16MB partition to the end of unallocated space so it lays right before main partition;
- move 100MB partition to the end of unallocated space so it lays right before 16MB one;
- resize first 450.97MB partition to the end of unallocated space.

You can check in BCD whether any partition is marked as recovery one.


PS And Ghosty is right - most correct way would be backup all needed data, then boot from OS installer, then delete all partitions and let OS installer to do the rest.
