    The option to move the iso using the external HD is a viable option.

    1.) You are talking about repair install. That cannot be made when booting from USB or DVD. Repair install is done by mounting the ISO in File Explorer, no USB or DVD is required. First reply to you in this thread, @zbook's post #2 has a link to repair install tutorial, have you already read it: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade | Tutorials

    2.) As @Bree mentioned in post #6, maximun file size in FAT32 file system is 4 GB. For clean install using USB flash drive when a single file in ISO, for instance install.esd or install.wim is larger than 4 GB, see this tutorial: Create bootable USB installer if install.wim is greater than 4GB | Tutorials

    I finally got around to finishing this and am happy to report that all seems to be well now on the problem computer.

    I reformatted the flash drive as suggested and copied the entire ISO on to it without difficulty. Then I connected my USB hub to the problem computer. At that point, I got a bit ahead of myself and clicked on the flash drive and launched setup.exe *from the flash drive while it was still in the USB hub*, immediately regretted it but then decided to let it go just to see what would happen. I expected it to get buggered up as soon as it rebooted the first time since I assumed it would lose the connection to the flash drive and not be able to see it but it turns out that it worked just fine. I didn't need to put the flash drive into the laptop or copy its contents to the laptop before launching setup.exe.

    I haven't tested the computer thoroughly yet but the things that were broken, like most of the task bar, are fine now so I expect all is well.

    Thanks to all of you for your suggestions!

    That's because connection to the usb is only needed for the first step. After the first reboot all further work is done from the files that were copied to the hard drive. The usb can be removed at this point.

    I deduced as much when the repair/install sailed on through to the end without any further effort on my part
