    Hello,

    We understand that many customers are receiving error 0xC1900101 – 0x40017 when installing Windows 8.1. This error is typically caused by an incompatible driver.



    If you are receiving this error:
    1.
    First, please double-check the error code. There are many variations of error 0xC1900101, each with a different location code -- the error extension, located after the dash. The information in this thread is intended only for location code 0x40017. If you are receiving a different location code, these steps are unlikely to resolve your issue.

    2.
    Check that you’ve already updated all of your drivers. In particular, if you have an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card, make sure you’ve installed the latest Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers


    3.
    Check that you do not have any Frequently Asked Questions - What devices are supported by the SteelSeries Engine? that support the SteelSeries Engine installed on your PC. The SteelSeries Engine software is currently not supported on Windows 8.1. Please uninstall the software before attempting to update to Windows 8.1

    Just to be clear, you are upgrading from Win 7 to Win 8 (not 8.1) ? Edit: Just noticed you are trying a dual boot which may be the issue.


    Lots of info on the net if you google which can be better than the forum. Sample:


    Buy a Windows 7 PC and get Windows 8 Pro for $14.99 (title misleading)



    Note the importance of insuring you have all updates installed. Also,


    please confirm that you are using either a retail DVD or some other installation method.
