Win 10 1607 OSD upgrade hangs with “Starting Driver Inventory” in setupact.log

Recently resolved a case with a Windows 7 - 10 IPU issue that I wrote a help document internally with the help of Frank Rojas but has now been posted publicly ( Additional details about it can be found below.


When upgrading Windows 7 to 10 via SCCM with the integrated Operating System Upgrade task sequence using the Windows 10 1607 Enterprise media.  We are continuously running into the error of 0xC1900208 which is flagged as a compatibility error on the workstation.  However, using the same exact media loaded onto a thumb drive or network share, I receive no compatibility errors.


SMSTS.log shows these entries:

02-16-2017 10:04:55.970    OSDUpgradeWindows    4940 (0x134c)    Windows Setup failed with hexadecimal exit code 0xC1900208 (decimal 3247440392). To identify the type of issue, lookup it against the table of known values of Windows Setup errors online.

02-16-2017 10:04:55.970    OSDUpgradeWindows    4940 (0x134c)    Failing this task sequence step


NOTICE THAT setupact.log stops abruptly at:

02-27-2017 13:14:23.000    CONX       Windows::Compat::Appraiser::WicaApplicationInventory::GetInventory (263):   Starting Application Inventory.
