    Is there is any I can upgrade my corrupted system from another drive


    Is there is any way I can upgrade a corrupted system without opening it because I can't open my system at all and without opening it I can't upgrade, Is there is any I can upgrade my corrupted system from another drive.

    And Before you ask Yes I can't reset because it's giving me an error and I don't have any kind of backups

    Let's pretend your Windows 7 is corrupt; let's pretend your upgrading to Windows 10.
    Your question: ?Can one upgrade a corrupted Windows 7 to a good Windows 10 via an external boot,
    either a usb stick or a DVD with the appropriate expanded Windows 10 ISO?

    I didn't see "test post" mentioned. But to answer the question, it very seldom works to upgrade the OS if there are problems with what is installed. If cloning to another drive the same problems will most likely transfer so one wouldn't be any further ahead. In such cases a clean install is called for.

    I do know that Berton I want to restore my registry files that got deleted because of my stupidity and now I can't boot my system, reset my system tried everything now the only the thing left is upgradiation I want to see if that can fix it or not I don't want to do a clean install because my all files, my all app settings will going to be deleted in just in a seconds and I spent to many hours just to create them I don't want to lose them

    that's the reason I am finding alternatives to repair my system

    What happened earlier was my original reply was dorked by something and returned a nul, so I quickly posted a "test post" and was able to rewrite my comment as post edit.
