    Note: the above link is just to download the current build Win 10 - for the Creator's build.

    If your OS is the Anniversary build, that could be used to upgrade to a new build. Otherwise it could be used to do an in-place upgrade repair install on your current build, if you already have the Creator's build.

    These are important differences, so I'm not sure what @Henry2 has in mind.

    Hi @dalchina, that s the procedure to create the installation media with Windows 10 and reinstall the OS (all data in the system will be erased) when the OEM factory reset option is not working. It save load of time.

    Ok, Jayj - as you're happy to erase all data, why not just do a clean install of Win 10 and start from scratch? But note - that would be the current Creator's build.

    Before you do, check your disk:
    Download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial)
    Please post a screenshot of its GUI.
