    That's basically a repair install,



    Repair Install Windows 8

    Plenty of reasons why you might want to do that.

    I know an upgrade install worked over my copy of W8.1 Pro, so I assume you should be able to do the same with W10.

    Nothing to upgrade; as has been previously stated that's really just a repair install.

    My idea worked. Had a few issues with sfc and windows genuine validation but it eventually validated. I might do a tutorial haven't decided and submit it to Brink it might be better over at the pchelpforum forums it requires Linux and well as windows tools it could work without but I am not sure. Anybody here that a good writer and good with grammar. My grammar is not that great.
