Scenario: Windows 10 updates 1903 stuck on OEM logo (0xc1900101 error)
Hello, I’m currently running Windows 10 1809 and trying to update to version 1903, but it always failed and got stuck on the Acer logo, every single time. The only way I can get past the OEM logo is I forcefully turning off my PC and then turned on back so the rollback process can be started. On the update history, it says 0xc1900101 error. I’ve tried updating my GPU drivers, using Windows 10 updater tool, and etc. still failed.
