Windows 10: 7 to 10 no like - revert - remorse - 10 again? Solved

    7 to 10 no like - revert - remorse - 10 again?

    I have Lenovo S10-3T touch screen - updated from 7 to 10 - no touch screen. I went back to 7.

    Can I get back to 10 from the directories on my hard drive?

    I have two directories: $Windows.~BT and $Windows.~WS

    Can do the download thing but thought I might be able to reinstall 10 from one of these directories.

    Thanks for any ideas that might come along.

    Look for setup.exe in those directories. If there, try running. May work. If not use the MediaCreationTool to download and create and ISO or a flash drive. I prefer ISO as you can then simply right click on it, select Mount then run setup.exe to start the install and if there are problems you have the ISO to use gagain, otherwise just tell MCT to start the update as soon as the download ends.

    Found setup in one directory earlier and it didn't work - error message. Found one in the $Windows.~WS/sources/windows directory and it seems to be working, have gotten through to the getting updates screen. Will let you know if it does not work - will be morning before I know most likely SLOOOOOW connection.

    Thanks Much!
