    Hello grimmrace,

    If you like, you might see if doing a repair install instead may be able to sort your issues without losing anything.

    First of all, thank you for all the support and the tutorials. This is the most helpful resource for Windows 10 overall in the internet.

    Is there any way to do this if you're on the Windows Insider Fast ring? Fast ring ISOs aren't available. My Computer isn't working correctly, and besides it has done 7->8->8.1->every fast ring build. I wouldn't mind installing 10240 over 10547 if it helps. Is it possible to do a repair install using an older build?


    Thanks!

    You should be able to do the tutorial below as an Insider as well, but will have to do a few more steps.

    Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First

    After you create and back up your gatherosstate.exe file, install the latest Windows 10, set to get Insider builds, update to build 10547, and then copy the gatherosstate.exe file back to activate if not already.
