    No guarantees though

    Thanks for clarifying SLB appreciate it.

    You're welcome KB,

    I was thinking it might be easier to do an in-place upgrade than using Kyhi's PE boot (although it is a useful tool to have)
    Great minds think alike, eh?

    Here's the Upgrade in-place tutorial.

    Just to confirm what you all think I should do.

    Do the "Repair Install in place Upgrade Windows 10" according to the video by Steve (essenbe) ?

    I have the ISO downloaded via media creation tool to a file on my computer. I will mount this file instead of doing it from a file saved to the desktop shown in the video. Unless I here otherwise from you.

    Just for the sake of my own information what is the difference between a reinstall and saving all my personal files verses (think that is called refresh) and a new "clean" install. Is it just that one saves the personal files, and other other does not or are there other things happening?

    I appreciate what appears to be a team effort to help me !

    Here's a description of 'Reset'
    Everything You Need to Know About in Windows 8 and 10

    A clean install means wiping everything - you just get Windows from the installation medium.

    Here are my notes on an in-place upgrade repair install:

    Precede it with this in case sthg has happened to your file system:

    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

    An In-place upgrade repair install will fix many things, but not those where the settings are not changed by the procedure.

    For this you need an installation medium with the same base build as you have installed, and x64 if you have a 64 bits OS, else x86 (32 bits).

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
    - this includes a link from which you can obtain Windows 10 iso file (" download a Windows 10 ISO"), or create a bootable medium.

    I would recommend creating the bootable medium, as this can be used
    - for any future in-place upgrade repair install
    - to boot from and use its recovery options should Windows become unbootable.
    - to clean install Windows

    This will refresh Windows, after the manner of a Windows installation.
    - all/most associations will be unchanged
    - all your programs will be left installed
    - no personal data should be affected
    - you will lose any custom fonts
    - you will lose any customised system icons
    - you may need to re-establish your Wi-Fi connection
    - you will need to redo Windows updates subsequent to the build you have used for the repair install
    - Windows.old will be created
    - system restore will be turned off- you should turn it on again and I recommend you manually schedule a daily restore point.
    - you will need to redo any language downloads including the display language if you changed that)
    - inactive title bar colouring (if used) will be reset to default
    - if Qttabbar is installed, you need to re-enable it in explorer (Options, check Qttabbar)
    This is one of the better features of Win10: as each major build comes out, that's your updated reference build, and as updates are mostly cumulative, there will be few to do.

    Before you perform this major repair procedure, do create a disk image.

    Please consider using disk imaging regularly. It's a brilliant way to
    - preserve your system (and your sanity)
    - back up your data
    - restore your system to a previously working state in a relatively short time

    Recommended: Macrium Reflect (free/commercial) + boot disk/device + large enough external storage medium.

    dalchina here are the results of my check disc. Had a little trouble with using notepad on Win 10 so I copied it, and made a made a small PDF of it.

    Don't know if this is part of my problem or some kind of symptom, but If matters weren't bad enough for me I discovered that (and I do not know why) my SSD is showing up as an IDE in my BIOS.
    When it was installed last year it was optioned as ACHI. Right now if I go into my BIOS, and put it back to ACHI I can't boot.
    System can't find my hard drive. I optioned it back to EDI, and I can boot once again. I should have been a plumber as I am going down the toilet slowly.

    If this is getting to be too much cut me loose I don't want to be a pain in the A(XX). I'll understand

    Good, chkdsk passed.

    Regarding IDE/AHCI it is possible to change, but not easy. Your SSD should be using AHCI for best performance as you know.
    Here is one of many sets of instructions on this:
    Change from IDE to AHCI after installing Windows 8 - Super User

    It may be worth researching this further e.g.
    Solved Attn. SSD owners - Enabling AHCI mode AFTER Windows 10 installation. - Windows 10 Forums

    In any event, before making significant changes, use disk imaging (e.g. Macrium Reflect (Free) to give you a way out if things go wrong.

    Just to ask the most obvious question at this point; would it be very difficult to do a clean install starting with AHCI now you've noted that?

    It is much easier in win 8 and 10 than it was in Win7 , Brink made a Tutorial here too :

    AHCI - Enable in Windows 8 and Windows 10 after Installation - Windows 10 Forums

    OR in Short Form from OCN website witn no pretty pictures ............

    • Exit all Windows-based programs.
    • Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.
    • Now type Regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window. (If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.)
    • Locate and then click the following registry sub keys:Code:
    • Locate the Error Control entry which should have a value of 3. Right-click on the entry name, select Modify, change the value from 3 to 0 and click OK.
    • Locate and then click the following registry sub keys:Code:
    • Locate an entry named "0" with a value of 3. Change the value to 0 by following the procedure in step 5.

    Yes I was wondering the same thing. Could I change the BIOS to ACHI, option the BIOS to boot from the DVD (with the ISO I created using the Media creation tool). then do a fresh install ? I don't think I need to format the SSD?

    I've been moving photos etc. over to a separate drive just in case. Never used Windows built in backup I wonder how good that is?
    I don't mind reinstalling all my programs it's the little things like my E-mail configuration and address book files, and the desktop links I have on my desktop. that seem to be a pain.

    I think I will make some screen copies of my E-mail configuration, and export my address book files next.

    I think you're heading the right way. Back up everything you haven't already, configure for AHCI, clean install.

    Windows Backup and Restore is seen as a poor relation to 3rd party tools like Macrium, and subject to problems at inconvenient times.

    Belt and braces- create a disk image of what you have now, so you can extract anything you want from the image (it's a full backup) after you've clean installed Win 10.
