Windows 10: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
Hi Brink, Many thanks for your quick reply and welcome message.
That's good news - everything will be the same except for the language change from US to UK.
I'll take an Image of the disc as it currently is (just in case) and then do a clean install.
Real busy over the next few days, so will prob be Fri or Sat before I can get around to it.
I'll let you know how things go.
All the work and time you put into helping others is much appreciated.
Many Thanks !
You're most welcome Greyhound.
Does anyone know if the Modern Host failed error has been resolved cause that is stopping me from running repair.
That's usually a PC specific error.
Oh well, but thanks, Brinks.
W10 Not Recognizing Itself
I have an C:\inetpub\history issue; the configHistory is missing. I tried to do an in-place W10 upgrade in order to repair that issue using an .ISO but I get 'This PC can not run W10'...that seems odd when it already has W10 installed. I am the admin and run the .iso as admin.What would cause an OS not to recognize itself?

This threw me off never had to download two versions before it was either or. So how does one mount two versions to run a repair install? I have a 64bit and have always used 64bit 'make sure to download both' is a 'bit' confusing, anyway I initially used the Windows 10 Single Language (x64) going to try the vanilla Windows 10 and will post back on the results.
BTW wouldn't know of a 'inetpub history default notepad' I could use to copy>paste over the corrupted one I have would ya? That would eliminate the repair hassle.
You would only want to use the same version, edition, and language as what you currently have installed.
I am unable to use any version of W10 .iso.
I chose the W10 Pro x64 which is what I upgraded to from W7 Pro back in August.
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:
The bit version...
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.
