    Yes, if I remember correctly, the MCR will download W10, and you will have an option to save the ISO to a flash drive/DVD (can't remember exactly); I think it's "save to upgrade another computer" or something similar.

    If you do the ISO, then save it to your computer, right-click, select Mount, and then run setup.exe right from within your current operating system.

    EDIT: Please be sure to disconnect all other drives.

    OK I D/L windows 10, "Win10_1607_English_x64.iso" but I don't get Mount. If I double click the file, it opens WinZip, there is a setup file there. I'm lost and don't want to get this wrong after all this hard work. Am I supposed to be burning the file to a disk?

    You don't double-click, you right-click and select Mount. Mounting ISOs is a feature built in to W10, and is available through the right-click function. When mounted, the ISO will be given a drive letter, and you can open it in File Explorer.

    Just thinking....if you have WinZip installed, it may have taken over, and you won't find that Mount option. Maybe uninstall WinZip for now.

    Nope, when I right clicked I don't get any option to mount. Just the normal list of open with etc. Hmm, maybe I have some file settings wrong with what opens what? Its the samed list that I get up if I right click any other file starting with Open with ..... and ending in properties. GOT IT, I had to change the default opening program

    In my system, I have WinX DVD program, which takes over mounting/creating virtual drives for ISO archives. So, my Mount selection is highlighted "Mount Image to Driver with WinX". I also have Power Archiver on here, which is similar to 7-Zip and Win Zip. In this case, I can select "Extract to" and tell Power Archiver to extract all files to my Desktop. Then, on my desktop will be the setup.exe file, which is the one you want to double-click to start the in-place repair.

    So, don't uninstall WinZip - my mistake; you must have another CD/DVD software on your system which has taken over that function (CyberLink comes to mind as one of them, Roxio is another).

    Select keep personal files and apps - that will keep all your programs as well as your data.

    Fingers crossed! It's late here and I'm signing off. This repair should take just about as long as an upgrade, so don't be surprised. Good luck! :)
