    Repair Install of Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Hi ,

    I want to do a repair install of windows 10 ( new 1607) with an in-place upgrade using DVD media ( .iso 1607 , engl/us ,all the same ) because of corrupted files although windows operation so far is good .
    sfc /scannow ,
    command prompt > DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth ,
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:E:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess , using the DVD media
    couldn't repair .
    In my present installation I don't use password to sign-in , so the welcome screen simply shows my photo and enters desktop normally.
    The question is , should the new installation accept this or ask me to enter a password in welcome screen ?

    Thanks in advance

    Hello babis49, :)

    Your sign in settings should remain the same after doing a repair install.

    If it doesn't for some reason, you can always set Windows to automatically sign in to your account at startup again.
