2. Unplug all peripherals
Some users have confirmed they managed to install Windows 10 after unplugging all peripherals from their computers.
Although this may sound like a third-grade solution, you should try it out as it has proven to be useful for some users.
3. Remove additional RAM or your Network card
Sometimes the 0XC190010 – 0x20017 error is caused by extra RAM, so you can also try to remove one RAM module and make another attempt at installing Windows 10.
There are also users who have reported that removing their network card also fixes the issue.
You should use this fix only if you’re good at computers. If your computer’s warranty is still valid, then you should contact a professional and have them do this for you.

- Right-click the Start button and select Device Manager.
- Find your Bluetooth driver on the list.
- Right-click the driver and select Uninstall.
- Repeat the process for the wireless network driver.
If uninstalling the two drivers didn’t solve the issue, disable them from BIOS:

- Enter BIOS during the boot sequence.
- Go the Advanced Tab > Wireless >hit Enter.
- The options Internal Bluetooth and Internal Wlan shoould be visible.
- Disable them > press Esc to go back to the main screen > save the changes.
If you still run a Windows 7 or 8.1, the solution above is dedicated to you so make sure you try it.
This error usually occurs because of a driver bug check fail. For Windows 7 and 8.1 PC owners, the culprits are the Bluetooth and Wireless Network drivers, which are not compatible with Windows 10.
If you’re upgrading from these OS versions, first uninstall the two drivers and then try again to install Windows 10.
