As the Windows 11 rollout continues after it became available in 2021, more PC users will be migrating to the new OS. This means that an increasing number of people are running into trouble; the tedious, not-sure-what-to-do kind of trouble we all loathe. One such instance of this is Windows 11 Error Code 0xC1900107.
So to try and stop you from getting trapped in a doom cycle of error codes and frustration, we've got answers. By the time you've read this article, you'll be well on the way to completing that Windows 11 upgrade, leaving you more time to get into the good kind of trouble.
How To Fix Windows 11 Error Code 0xC1900107
There are only two steps that you need to take, in an effort to resolve this problem. The first is the classic, tried-and-trusted system restart. Turn your device off and back on again, and then attempt to restart the setup process.
If, however, this does not remedy the problem, your next step is to use the Disk Cleanup utility. This will help to clean up the temporary files and the System files that are no longer needed. The steps you need to follow are as follows:
To delete temporary files:
- In the search box on the taskbar, type disk cleanup, and select Disk Cleanup from the list of results.
- Select the drive you want to clean up, and then select OK.
- Under Files to delete, select the file types to get rid of. To get a description of the file type, select it.
- Select OK.
If you need to free up more space, you can also delete system files:
- In Disk Cleanup, select Clean up system files.
- Select the file types to get rid of. To get a description of the file type, select it.
- Select OK.
Normally, the files you need to delete will be found in Temporary Files > Remove Temporary Files > Previous Version of Windows. Once removed, you can restart the setup process, and this error will no longer be an issue.
