    Megahertz... Drive 2 (Disk2) was cloned from a previous system - different motherboard and cpu but same version of Windows 10.

    I used Winaero Tweaker to disable Windows Update - see previous post.

    Did you converted the drive from Legacy-MBR to UEFI-GPT?

    I just tried downloading 1909 ISO file from various sources that use MS servers to create the ISO file and they all failed saying the files were no longer available from MS.

    I was able to create the 1909 Windows 10 ISO file with the Cumulative Updates version from UUPDump. I installed it in a VM and then attempted to do the in place upgrade from the same ISO file that I installed Windows with and only got the option to keep nothing. Then I attached the Windows 22H2 ISO file to the VM and this time I got the option to keep everything. So the issue appears to be with the 1909 ISO file - there was a series of Windows versions that would not do the in place upgrade, and it appears 1909 was one of them.

    I can't remember if there was a fix for the in-place upgrade problem or not with those ISOs that would not do it.

    I would not waste any more time pursuing trying to make it work, I would upgrade to 22H2.
