    Since this thread started off as, "...Indexing is always off" to an opinion that, " (which I consider a downgrade from 2004)." I just wanted to share that if he were to upgrade to 20H2 from 1909 or 2004 for him to read this if he does not have any Disk Imaging Software installed:

    How to uninstall and downgrade Windows 10 20H2 to previous versions

    Regarding version 20H2 I have it installed and am not having any issues. Just my opinion.
    Did you ever use 2004?

    Don't worry, the primary focus of mine is that Windows Search works for the OP.

    Good morning. I downloaded an ISO for the 2004 version and twice tried to do a 'repair install'. Twice, it got to the 100% point and changed to 'your PC will restart in a few moments'. Twice, it hung there before changing to my exisitng OS with a small popup saying installation had failed. In between the two attempts, I ran chkdsk c: /f.

    I reckon the only thing I can do now is a clean install which I'm not in the mood for at the moment.

    The only tine I've seen that was in a very old upgraded computer that had previously only exhibited some very minor incompatibilities.
    - A clean install failed as well.
    - I could not update to v1803 at all on this computer and other users of the same model found the same.

    I don't know what computer you have but perhaps the maker hosts user forums you might have a nose around for reports of v2004 problems for your model.

    Thanks for the update.

    We're not to the point where clean install is the only option, so great that you didn't do that.

    If you have any 3rd party firewall, antivirus, or VPN software, they should all be uninstalled before try to do the upgrade. Do you?

    Please run two commands
    sfc /scannow 
    dism /online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    when you have a chance. Post the resulting output.

    Is PC BIOS and drivers current according to the PC manufacturer website?

    Hi guys and thanks for the continued suggestions and offers of help.
    sfc /scannow and dism /online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth were both clean (i.e. nothing found that needed fixing). I uninstalled my VPN and disabled Defender Realtime Protection. I changed the display language to English(US) (in both of my install attempts, “making sure you're ready to install” told me I'd have to reinstall the language pack afterwards). It seems the language pack is a known cause of problems – see point 2 of this site:
    I'm assuming that BIOS drivers are fine. I couldn't see anything on the ASUS website that looked like a checking tool.
    I then tried for the third time to do a repair install of v2004 but got tired of waiting for “making sure you're ready to install” to complete so gave up. Instead, I ran Paul Black's batfile (attached). If someone is willing to analyse it I'd be mighty grateful. My continued thanks to you all.

    Please let us know what happens when you have time to try the install again and note that part about disconnecting unnecessary peripherals before starting the upgrade from the link you posted.
