Windows 10: Migration vs Clone to New PC
As stated, Migrating software more then not causes problems, especially if it is from a different OS. Unless you are restoring a Clone from the same computer or model # we suggest doing a clean install and installing your programs.
To answer your question, go to Start/Search and type CMD, Right click the CMD results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Command Prompt type SFC /scannow and press enter. This will replace any missing system files.
What files are you talking about?
I'm not as knowledgeable about computers as you are, that's why I'm here, to be helped and help others. Moving on, is it possible to replace individual corrupted files and if so where do I find them and how is it done?
System files or your own data files ?
Some of us could call it progress.
Thanks. I deal with big files at times and so USB 3.0 would speed things up nicely, although I can get by with 2.0
I've runs SFC /scannow several times since the issue and it always ends with that some files were not able to be corrected. It does produce a report, but I wouldn't know what to do with the results, so I opted for the repair-reinstall which at 33% completion I get the error "Modern setup host has stopped working." I don't know what that's about ...
The files with the issues are system files.
Whether you clone or migrate the OS you are also going to clone or migrate the exact same problems you have now. The only way you are going to fix those problems is with a clean install.
OK. Your store to repair files seems to be corrupted too.

Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
In your particular case I'd recommend a source, i.e. a mounted Windows 10 iso file, preferably containing install.wim which should be the same version as your current system version wise.
Migrating software won't work. Re-install.
Which should be obtained from here, not the Media Creation Tool:
Windows 10 ISO
Sounds promising. I'm pretty sure I already downloaded and burned the Windows 10 ISO, but I wasn't sure what it was since I'm running Win10 Pro 64 and the download page doesn't specifically state it will work for Pro 64. The iso file in the burned DVD is a little over 3.5GB. Is this the correct one for sure for my version?
To clarify what I'm to do, I run the Bootable Rescue Disk and run a couple tests as shown in the instructions from the link. I assume it will tell me which files I need, then those files will be transferred form the Windows 10 ISO disk? If so, I've got just one disk drive. How does the tool disk transfer the needed files from the Windows 10 ISO disk, without the Windows 10 ISO disk in the drive? Do I need to connect a second disk drive? If so I think I can get one.
Following up on my last message, I see now, after reading the Readme, that the "Bootable Rescue Disk" is actually the post title and "Image Health" id the actual tool. I assume it runs on my local C: drive and will extract the files needed for the disk in the disk drive, correct? After downloading it and extracting the Image Health 7Zip file I copied the ImageHealth.cmd to C: directory. The Readme says "Step 2: Right-Click IMAGE_HEALTH.CMD > Select Properties > Select Unblock ", but there is no "Unblock" to select. Please adevise.
Just right click the ISO file and select "Mount". A virtual drive will be created with all the files accessible.

Just put the unzipped folder on either your system drive C:\ . Right click the image_health.cmd file and select run as Administrator. A shell will pop up with a menu containing 16 choices.

You should pick #3.
Followed by #7.
I have a pc with SSD and Windows 8 in it. By mistake I did not wipe the windows 8, and now windows 10 is on another HDD partition. Below is what my partitions look like.
Is there any guide to migrate my Windows 10 installation...
I bought a new computer with Windows and wonder if there are some tools to move all of my settings, files and applications to a new one.
Maybe someone has used any of applications which move all of these things?
I heard about...
I moved the Windows 10 installation of my mother's PC from a hard drive to a SSD using DriveImageXML drive2drive feature with Windows running. I copied the boot system partition and the Windows partition (C:) then booted with the new system...
