Hallo,

I did a CleanInstall on Lenovo P50 with Win11 23H2 and tested the recovery environment.
Result: Win11 hangs at please wait, then Dism Repair commands and SFC, everything ok.
Now an Inplace Repair as a test. Result: Phase OS error.

Windows 11 could not be installed. Your PC was restored to the state it was in before you started installing Windows 11. 0xc1900101 - 0x20017 The installation was not successful. An error occurred in the _OS phase during the boot process.

All this in GPT (UEFI), partition style.
Then with the same SSD as a test in a much older laptop with UEFI, result: Everything works wonderfully here.
If I install Win11 in MBR BIOS style everything works.
This is very strange and can only be due to the UEFI.

I also tested it with older UEFI and Win11 22H2, it doesn't work either. It only works with MBR BIOS. And the old laptop doesn't cause any problems at all.
maybe someone has an idea.

You might want to specify your Winver.

A driver has caused an illegal operation.
Windows wasn't able to migrate the driver, resulting in a rollback of the operating system.
This is a SafeOS boot failure, typically caused by drivers or non-Microsoft disk encryption software.
This can also be caused by a hardware failure.

Ensure that all that drivers are updated.
Open the Setuperr.log and Setupact.log files in the %windir%\Panther directory, and then locate the problem drivers.
For more information, see Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 setup log file locations.
Update or uninstall the problem drivers.

its the Win11 22631.3085, but all Versions produce these errors.
All Drivers are uptodate from original Lenovo,
It only works correctly under MBR BIOS. And the recovery environment should work immediately after installation. I can't find anything in the Setupact.log. And setuperr.log is empty.
More important is the C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\panther\setupact.log, but I can't find anything there either. Immediately after installation without drivers, an in-place upgrade or the recovery environment should still work ??

It can only be due to the UEFI, unfortunately. Win10 doesn't cause any problems at all. :confused:

Thanks for the lInks, but i think, i am waiting for the Windows 11 24H2 and it won't be long anymore, :-) and on my other SSD, i have a good working Windows 11 and Win10 Version on the P50.
It's strange that a CleanInstall, and I've tested several, doesn't open the recovery environment and Phase OS produces errors, whether with or without drivers.

Hi catweazel,

The most recent I read, 24H2 won't be available until September of this year, at least that's the estimated time of release (not February as first mentioned).

24H2 in September 2024

Kind regards,

tecknot

Ohh...
Well, I'm currently setting up the Win11 CleanInstall, there's nothing on it yet and you don't necessarily have to have a working recovery environment, if necessary with a USB stick. MS will certainly bring a small update for the 23H2 to the 24H2, so you don't need an inplace upgrade.
I hope... :-)

Solution:

Hello,

and a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,


I found the error, it's not the UEFI, but:

I looked at the devices in the UEFI under Security - I/O and disabled WWAN, EXpresscard and Thunderbolt at the same time,

Restart and go into recovery, completely problem-free, then back into Uefi and WWAN, Expressscard enabled, Thunderbolt still disabled, since I never knew the connection before, it seemed suspicious to me. Win10 doesn't cause any problems at all.

Recovery and important in-place upgrade repairs are now easy. Just repaired a Win11 inplace.
Now the device is great fun again with Win11.:-):-)
