Windows 10: Can I install Windows 10 on top of Windows 10 to fix problems

    Can I install Windows 10 on top of Windows 10 to fix problems

    Before I installed W10, using System File Checker showed no corrupt or missing files. After the conversion, sfc shows problems. I'd like to know if I can reinstall Windows 10 to fix those problems. I did this before with Windows 7 and it corrected all errors. If I reinstall Windows 10, where do I get the ISO file so I can make an installation disk? Thank you.

    Hello Nisko, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Yes, you can. We refer to it as a repair install.

    Thank you. Can you tell me where to get the ISO file to make a Windows 10 Installation Disk? I would plan on using this disk to perform the repair install. Also, can this disk be used over Windows 7?

    You can use an option in the tutorial below to download an official Windows 10 ISO file from Microsoft.

    You would need Windows 7 media to repair Windows 7 with, but you could use W10 media to still open a command prompt at boot on W7.
