I'm unable to install Windows 10. It throws the following message window and the installation rolls back.

"Windows cannot install required files. Make sure all files required for installation are available, and restart the installation. Error code: 0x800701E3"

Retrying installation worked for me. I did not make any changes in bios or elsewhere. When the errors comes up during Windows 10 installation, close the dialog boxes(do not reboot/exit installation). You will be taken back to "Install now" window, click "Install now" and proceed. You may have to try this a few times before it works, no other changes or worries required. I mostly succeed during 3rd or 4th attempt when I get the error(other times it installs with no errors or issues at all)

Did this multiple times on Lenovo Flex 2 15(more details).
