    Yes.
    After repair install is completed, please try to enable Cortana. That will simplify matter a lot.

    #1. Repair Install allows you to keep your files, settings and apps.
    No product key is required.
    Activation is automatic.

    #2. I do not have answer for that.
    If you wish, please wait a bit. Someone might come along with an answer for that.

    Side note :
    This is just my speculation. I have no proof for that. None whatsoever.
    I have the feeling you have done one registry editing too many.

    If you ask this question, then my speculation is unfounded and completely wrong.
    I apologize. Please disregard.
