    So I just tried to do an update from my Windows 8.1 install to Windows 10 Home using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool.

    It got the image, rebooted and bluescreened sometime after being 54% in.

    The error I saw was "0xc1900101 - 0x3000D The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE_DATA operation"

    Searching that string I get a ton of hits for the Windows 8 -> 8.1 update but no solutions.

    I'm doing the update on a Gigabyte P34G which has been upgraded to 16GB of RAM.

    This is 8.1 Home so I don't believe it has encryption.

    Hmm, so it dies 91% into the "Installing features and drivers" part.

    I understand not by default, but do you have any 3rd party encryption app? My assumption here is no since you said it does not by default have it.

    Since it is a data issue maybe if you back up the files elsewhere and then delete the data? But now you say it is stooping at a different area? Is there an error code there too?

    I've never installed a drive encryption app on this machine. I'm not sure what kind of data issue it could be as it is almost done with the 2nd step of the install which I would assume means it hits a driver it does not like or it hits some kind of space issue.

    I have about 20GB of free space on the C:\ drive which should be more than sufficient for this.

    It's still stopping in the same place, I was merely adding more information as to where it stops. The same error code comes up.

    Try again but when given the choice if you want to keep your files and settings, choose the last option which is I think no or something like that. That's what I did and once I upgraded, my Win 8.1 Pro key actually became a Win 10 Pro key

    so then I immediately formatted and did a clean install

    that's one of the reasons I never do OS upgrades, too much of a headache

    Did it delete only the files on your OS hard drive or data on other hard drives as well?

    only on the OS Drive but mind you, I have all my libraries set on another partition

    Best bet is to backup backup backup and remove that backup drive before attempting the upgrade.

    Never trust M!cr0$H4ft with your data or anything for that matter.
