    I have 1.7 gb free in the phone storage of my lumia 730...when i am trying to install the windows 10 mobile technical preview....it gets downloaded but when the phone tries to install it.....it gives the error that the phone tried to install it using the sd card and a problem occurred. Why is this happening...isn't 1.7gb phone storage enough to install windows 10?

    Free up at least a little more than 2 GB or something like that.

    I'm back on 8.1 now but I'm pretty sure you need 3 or 4 gb free for the installation

    Yes. I have installed the update on a 530 with about 1.6 - 1.7 gb free.

    Most definitely incorrect. One post windows insider forum refers to approximately 1.91GB of free space needed on the phones internal storage. I've been encountering this same error on a Lumina 530, and according that thread, the issue is because W10 CTP doesn't support installing via a SD card yet,. Apparently it will download to the SD card if you don't have enough free internal storage, and thus fail every time. So if you are lucky enough to have that much internal storage free, they suggest you pull the SD card and try again.

    Since I can't post links yet, do a search for "Windows 10 Technical preview update fails because of error 801882c1" and you should find the thread on the Microsoft answers forum.

    Apparently when you don't have enough space in the internal memory, the updates are downloaded to memory card. I had the same problem, and my memory card was kind of corrupt (slow speeds), I knew that before hand.

    I removed the memory card altogether (Lumia 830) and freed up a little over 2 GB internal and downloaded the build again. And it went along well.

    NO, what he's referring to or at least my problem, I go to "Files" app and deleted EVERYTHING thaw was on the phone, those I did not I placed on SD card 32gb (think).

    When I go into storage in settings it shows 6.8gb, ~458mb remaining.

    OK so all apps are on SD when I go through every folder empty, I deleted internet files and even got s cleanup app.

    So I go to insider and pick slow ring and it downloads and I put slow ring.


    Ok so I have 480mb phone and 25fb on SD, So I push install and it does normal update restart and line and picture of SD card (taking files from SD I guess) and then loads windows and I can see logo is still same (I had win 10 on old Nokia) and same OS nyt an error comes up I can't quote it but something very close to cannot install from SD card, either that or cannot access SD card.

    I've tried all resets and now I can't use software removal tool or access my backed up OS (I followed the list Microsoft gives you prior to installing Beta OS.

    Thanks for your help been searching for 3 hours or so...
