Windows 10: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
Hello @djsubtronic, and welcome to Ten Forums.
You should be able to uninstall and hide the update.
Hi, thanks for your message. I can't uninstall it as it says it is required by the system. I suppose a clean install would be needed?
Even with a clean install, the update would eventually just be installed again.
Are you having an issue with the update? The Microsoft article below says, "if you install a language pack after you install this update, you must reinstall this update".
I suspect it's causing problems for some programs but not 100%. I haven't installed any language packs or anything, I've already searched everything related to that update to no avail.
Thanks for your help anyway, I will just live with it for now!
If you like, post a new thread in the software forum area about the issues you are having with the programs to see what we may be able to do to help.
Thanks for posting this tutorial! It just saved me a big headache and lots of time.
You're most welcome FortFun. I'm glad it could help.
This has got to be better than that Reset function.
Language Issue During Repair
Hi All, A Newbe here with his first post – sorry if it’s abit long winded...
I upgraded my daughters Dell 1545 laptop back in August fromWin7 Home to Win 10 Home and all seemed to go well.
Last Saturday though, when I ran “sfc /scannow” it detectedcorrupt files which couldn’t be repaired.
Ran “dism …..” which also failed as it could’nt find thesource files. Tried both again a few more times to no avail.
Decided then to do the “Repair Install Windows 10 with anIn-place Upgrade” by following Brinks Tutorial.
I burned an install ISO with English (UK) as the languageand started the process off.
However when it came to the part of choosing what to keep,the personal files and apps option was greyed out and there was a message atthe bottom stating
"You can't keepWindows settings, personal files and apps because you've choosen to install Windows10 using a different language to the one you're currently using."
(I then remembered the Note in Brinks tutorial about this)
After some head scratching, I created another ISO with thelanguage set to “English (US) and tried again, this time successfully, so itlooks like the original upgrade from Win 7 to 10 was based on the Win 7 OSbeing set to English (US) for some reason.
Only thing I can think as to why this was the case, was thatthe HD was replaced under warranty and the OS reinstalled by the tech who mayhave possibly set the language to English (US) or not set it to (UK)
The question I have now, is can I do a Clean Install usingthe English (UK) ISO or is this likely to cause Activation issues? Or should I just use the English (US) ISO andset System, Input and Time Zone etc. to UK and avoid any potential Activationproblems?
Sorry if I’ve posted in the wrong place being as thequestion relates to a clean install, but the issue initially arose when doingthe repair, so thought here was best in case anyone else had the same problem.
Thanks for a great site Jandespecially to Mr Brink for all his excellent tutorials and other input.
Hello Greyhound, and welcome to Ten Forums.
For activation, you just need to make sure that it's the same edition the product key is for.
In-place upgrade, upgrading Windows to a later version or a superior edition of the same version is the only method to upgrade Windows without losing the installed apps and programs. Certain rules apply to an in-place upgrade:

Windows 8.1 had a desktop tile in the start screen. Windows 10 does not appear to have it. Is there a way to get the desktop tile back in windows 10?
Not sure why this happened, but I did an inplace-upgrade using the .iso created from the Media Tool Creator. When i checked apps on Windows 10, none of my Windows apps where there. I logged into another account and there was also no Windows apps. Is...
If I don't get the upgrade in the next few days, would this work to install windows 10 or should I just wait on an iso download from Microsoft?
Please bear with me, it is a little complicated.
