When you are trying to upgrade your device to the latest version of Windows 10, such as the Fall Creation Update or an earlier release, there is a little chance that you might get error 0xC1900200 – 0x20008 or 0xC1900202 – 0x20008.
How to fix Windows 10 error 0xC1900200 and 0xC1900202
While there can be many reasons why you get one of these errors, it’s usually a hardware requirement issue.
The first thing you want to do is make sure your device has enough space to download and install the new version. Typically, you want at least 20 GB of free storage. (You can use this guide to free up disk space.)
Second, and perhaps most importantly, make sure that your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements.
These are the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 10:
- Processor: 1GHz or faster processor or SoC
- Memory: 1GB for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
- Hard drive capacity: 16GB for 32-bit OS 20GB for 64-bit
- Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
- Screen: 800 × 600
There are many ways to check the hardware configuration on your computer. You can still quickly get necessary information by going to Settings> System> About to see processor, memory, and system type.
Then go to Settings> System> Storage to see if there’s enough storage space to upgrade.
If you’re running Windows 10, chances are your device meets the minimum display and graphics requirements.
If the computer doesn’t meet the minimum requirements, you can upgrade your system hardware or need a new device.
