I solved the system with the latest release on the MAC. Nothing about an
illegal operation. However I got NULLs in the answer.
A workaround might be to change the real #s in the function to exact numbers
and solve that. It worked for me (4 long messy roots which were a function
of k).

f[w_] := 1/(w^2) + (9/30)/(w - 2 Sqrt[200/10]k)^2 -
1 - (3/30)/( Sqrt[200/10]k^2 )
solutions = Solve[eqn, w];
InputForm [solutions/.k->1]
{{w -> -0.9904772020959722 + 3.9504822155621816*^-15*I}, {w ->
