Tutorial solves Error when upgrading to Windows 10: 0xC1900101 0x30018
A new tutorial has been released to fix the "0xC1900101 – 0x30018" error when upgrading to Windows 10. The error denotes an incompatibility issue within Windows and you are recommended to remove any conflicting drivers / software.

The most common cause of the 0xC1900101 – 0x30018 error is an incompatible audio driver. Many audio drivers will keep a service open at all times, and consequently when Win10 wants to overwrite the files that service needs, is unable to. The new tutorial explains that disabling your audio driver is the first step to fixing your potential issues. This, coupled with disabling the likes of antivirus etc should resolve the problem.
To fix the error, the first thing you need to do is disable your audio device. This is simpler than it sounds - you need to click onto the "Start" menu, right-click on "Computer" and then select "Properties"
On top of disabling your audio / Wifi / graphics driver, Microsoft recommends disabling any antivirus system you have. This differs from system to system, but the underpin is to right-click the Antivirus icon and select "Disable" (or similar). This will free up any potential files that Windows 10 needs to replace, allowing you to initiate the upgrade process again. These two steps should resolve the issue.
Some people have said that Windows 10 is not compatible with some computers. This is incorrect. Windows 10 is compatible with all personal computers; specific chipsets or hardware may not be compatible. The test of whether your system will work with Win10 is whether it ran Windows 7 or 8. If it did, then you'll be able to install Windows 10. The problems will arise if you have incompatible hardware on the system, such as an out-of-date chip or something.
