    Can low battery corrupt reinstall of Windows 10


    Hello,
    I reinstalled Windows 10 while keeping my files. My battery was extremely low as it was not charging. I reinstalled Windows 3 times as every time the installation was corrupted (time was showing in military format, Movies & TV app would not play and control panel was not where it should have been.) I have pulled and reinstalled the battery and it's now charging. Can a low battery corrupt a reinstall of Windows?
    Many thanks,
    Rick

    So long as your PC did not shut down during the installation you should expect normal operation. That's what the regulator circuitry in your PC does. So if it didn't actually interrupt the installation, you should have been fine.

    But you should not attempt such a procedure relying on battery power.

    Please advise whether the installation was interrupted or not.

    Thank you for the reply!
    No, the installation was not interrupted. Battery level was 2% at the time of installation, but was not relying on the battery. The laptop was plugged in. I've never had this problem before. Not sure how to fix the problems I have now.

    Hi, were you installing the Creator's build for the first time?
    control panel was not where it should have been
    This is a small change in the Win key X menu e.g.

    Where is Display Control Panel in Windows build 15063 - Microsoft Community

    I'm working on a Lenovo Notebook showing the same type problem, so far have determined that either the battery is bad or the charging circuitry on the motherboard is bad. The AC power supply is running the computer okay. Since some Lenovos use a different type plug and I don't have a Universal supply that will fit to test with, I ordered a new battery as step 1, if that doesn't cure the problem it may be time to replace the 3+ year old machine.

    No, I already had The Creators update. I'm not sure why the battery wasn't charging, but removing and reinserting it has resolved the charging problem. I guess reinstalling again with a fully charged battery is in order. My rig is a 2 year old HP Pavilion laptop. Hope it works this time.

    Thanks to all,
