    The error shows "Installation Incomplete" - "The installation of Windows SteadyState cannot be completed because of an error".

  • Hi Jotar,


    We can perform the following steps to check this issue:


    Step 1: Make sure your user account have administrator privilege.


    Step 2: Clean Boot (to disable all third party programs and services)


    1. Click Start, go to Run, and type "msconfig" in the open box to start the System Configuration Utility.

    2. Click the Services tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click Disable All.

    3. Click the Startup tab, click Disable All and click OK.

    4. Restart the computer and check this issue again.


    Step 3: Run Process Monitor during the installation to check the installation progress.


    Process Monitor v1.26



    You can also send the installation log file (C:\windows\SCT.log) to me at v-shshao@microsoft.com for further analysis.


    If there is any update, please feel free to let me know.


    Best Regards,
