8.1 Failure to install. 0xC1900101 - 0x30018

So here is whats going on. Windows 8.1 failed to install. It would download, install, restart, install some more, restart, and then when it got to the updating devices or whatever it was exactly, it would error with 0xC1900101 - 0x30018. I found threads that pointed the issue to being wireless card issues. I tried updating the drivers before install, no go. The only thing that worked was disabling the card in the BIOS (I actually just ripped the damn thing out, but it works the same). So finally got windows 8.1 installed. Went to put my wireless card back in, booted up, almost instant frowny face blue screen. So 8.1 broke my wireless capability all together. If anyone has any ideas or knows how to fix this I would appreciate it. Otherwise it looks like I will just have to wait for microsoft to fix their default drivers or whatever they did. FYI, i have a ASUS Dual-band PCE-N35 wireless card.

What about contacting ASUS and see what they say. I don't see any specific Windows 8.1 driver but maybe they have a beta version you could try.

Agree there is none on their web site. What I meant was contact ASUS and ask when they will have one that works with 8.1?

I will have to try that. I don't think they will do anything about it though, but its worth a shot. I just bought a wireless bridge to fix the issue for now.

ASUS is pretty responsive in my experience. Good luck. Please let us know how you make out.

I finally got Windows 8.1 Upgrade to install on my ASUS F2A85-V Pro motherboard. After a few frustrating days of installation, then auto rollback with error 0xC1900101 - 0x30018, it finally worked. I don't know exactly what fixed it, but I suspect it was related to the Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller device driver for the onboard network adapter. Here is what I did to get it working:
1. From Device Manager, uninstall the Realtek driver and delete all the files. This was a 2013 driver (published 9/24) downloaded by Microsoft Update as an optional install. I optionally installed it through Windows Update in early Oct.)
(Duh.... Now I can't access my LAN, let alone the Internet, to search for a replacement driver)
2. Install an older 2012 device driver from the ASUS motherboard DVD
3. Reboot to make sure the LAN is still working on Windows 8.0.
4. Open the Windows Store and click on the Download button to start the Windows 8.1 upgrade process.
I took all defaults except storing documents in the cloud.
I was shocked when it worked.
For completeness sake, there were two other things I did, but I don't believe they had any effect:
1. I uninstalled the Arduino Uno device driver and deleted all driver files.
2. I powered on, and left on, my Epson V370 Scanner. All other USB devices have always been on (APC UPS, Dymo Labelwriter).

Eight Forums has given me a lot of help, as a "lurker", with Windows 8 so I thought I would share this in case it helps anyone else with this problem.

Ah, so your difference was completely uninstalling the previous before rolling back. I tried installing the drivers from the CD i have but it didn't work... I may try eradicating all drivers for wireless and install a fresh driver for it, but that will have to wait till I have time. Btw, Ztruker, ASUS couldn't do anything about it unfortunately. I will try a bunch of new solutions next week if i get the chance.

The solution Microsoft has put out, says to disable your WiFi from your BIOS. It's a particular ASUS WiFi card. Sometimes a laptop has a switch to shut it off, that may work as well.

It only affects during Install, should be able to turn it back on after it is in. Install the newest drivers FIRST, if you can, then turn it on. Or, download the drivers, then D/C from the net, shut off your WiFi router. Then turn on Wifi, and install while not connected to any Net.
