MSI Wind U160DX to Windows 10

First, I must admit that I was surprised when I learned that my MSI Wind was getting Windows 10!

It was running Windows 7 Starter for the longest time, and although the experience isn’t pleasant, it worked for the basic tasks I needed it to do.

Upon hitting the upgrade button, I experienced error C1900101-40017. Upgrade stopped and my PC went back to Windows 7…

After a couple of system updates (months later), I decided to give it another try but another error appeared, C1900101-30018!

After searching for solutions online, from reformatting the entire PC to changing Advanced Startup Settings, I decided to do the simplest thing…

Turn-off the PC’s Wi-Fi!

(there’s a switch on the left hand side of the Netbook)

Obviously, you need to ensure that Windows has finished downloading ALL installation files before turning off your Wi-Fi.

Once Wi-Fi was off, installation went smoothly!

My MSI Wind now runs on Windows 10!

Overall performance of an Atom N550 with 1GB of RAM? Well, that will be for a later post…

Time to play with this Netbook again to see if it was worth the upgrade…
