CHESTER, U.K. - Nov. 6, 2016 - PRLog -- The Windows 10 Anniversary update (1607) fails to install with error 0xc1900101 - 0x40 -- "The installation failed in the SECOND-BOOT phase with an error during MIGRATE-DATA operation".

The issue is caused by your computer having either "DriveTheLife" (third party application) installed, or you could have an issue with your Antivirus / deeper Windows settings. The solution is to fix any of the potential problems that may be blocking the update.

The most common reason for this error is running a program called "DriveTheLife". This blocks some of the install files from being applied to your system, causing the error to show. The way to resolve it is to remove DriveTheLife from your computer, and fix some of the files it has blocked permissions for.

You first need to Right-Click onto the "Start" button, and select "Programs and Features". This will allow you to pick "DriveTheLife", which you should uninstall. Next, you need to browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\dtlsoft and delete it. After doing this, you should restart your computer. From the reboot, you then need to browse to C:/Windows/System32/Drivers and find the following two files: cdmsnroot_s.sys and ldrvpro64.sys -- delete both and restart. This should allow the update to resume.

If remove DriveTheLife does not resolve the problem, you are then recommended to close any antivirus applications, and remove any peripherals (USB devices) which may be preventing certain Windows files from installing. This could be accompanied by rebooting into "Safe Mode With Networking", which can be achieved by clicking onto the Start button > selecting Power > holding SHIFT and clicking "Restart". This will bring up an advanced boot menu, from which you need to click "Troubleshoot" and then "Advanced Options", "Startup Settings" and then restart. This will bring up the "Advanced Boot Menu" from which you need to select "Safe Mode with Networking" - which will run the update without any external applications running.

Ultimately, the Windows 10 Anniversary update is a good upgrade; it's not a problem from Microsoft which causes the error but incompatibility on your computer. If you want to upgrade your PC, you need to ensure your system has all the files and settings available for Windows to upgrade. This can be achieved using the tutorial explained below.
