    Installation Upgrade Download Windows 10 ISO File - Windows 10 Forums
    is the easiest way.

    If your PC is not bootable, then use the same base language and 'bitness' (x86 or x64).

    If Win10 was installed previously, and you wish to use the same edition, it should be activated automatically.

    - or you may wish to consider an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all programs and data if your PC can boot normally.

    But note that to do that you need the base build iso for the build you currently have installed- not necessarily that for the latest build. As a new build is coming in another month, that again becomes a necessary check.

    The base build without updateds? Like it was a few years agon? Can I use a USB-Stick, or is it too slow?

    Are you running Windows 10 Home Creators Update ?

    Then that`s what you should download. You can use a dvd or a usb stick, whatever you want.

    No, I don't, I would say, never heard of such. I use the version shown on my screenshot in the first post. Are there missing informations?

    Thank you for the link.

    1. I'm talking about an in-place upgrade repair install
    2. If the installed build is 1703, you need a 1703 iso to do that, not 1607, not later.
    3. If you use a later build iso, you will follow the same procedure, but UPGRADE to the later build, not perform an in-place upgrade repair install

    As a new build is coming in another month, that again becomes a necessary check.
    1. MS releases major builds up to twice a year.
    2. Users do not get that at the same time on the same day- it's over 2-3 months.
    3. Some users still run old builds e.g. 1511
    4. After a new build is released, instructing someone to perform an in-place upgrade repair install carries an increased risk of confusion during those 2-3 months that they will download the new build, and attempt an in-place upgrade repair of the previous build with that, which would give them an upgrade.

    Thus the new build release makes checking which build they actually need to download an even more necessary check so that the desired end is achieved.

    Note: as most users are terrible at filling in specs, we have no idea which build they are using and very often have to ask.
