    Thanks for that information.

    Well I ran the bat file and it is re-installing the latest build of version 20H2, I believe. I am probably still going to have to run a repair, which is what I had wanted to do, after it is done updating. I hope it lets me do it this time but I won't know for a few hours from now.

    Well I went through running that bat file. I then used the ISO file and the only option was to re-install Windows 10 version 20H2 and it re-installed the exact same version I had prior to doing all this. Consequentially I still have the same problem, which is why a MS technician said I needed to run a Repair. I still cannot run a repair and keep my apps and files.

    So the problem seems to be the machine cannot start the Peer name resolution Protocol, Peer networking Grouping, or the Peer Networking Identity Manager, all of which are supposed to be set to Automatic. I get an error message saying: Windows could not access the Peer name resolution protocol service on local computer. Error code: 0x80630203: Unable to access a key. The message for Peer networking Group is: Windows could not start the Peer networking Group on local computer. The error code is: 1069: The dependency service or group failed to start. Peer Networking Identity manager is the only one of the 3 Peer services that is running. Since I can't run a Repair, not sure that would fix it anyhow, how can I get the two Peer services to run?
    The .bat file creates the .reg file which must be merged into the Registry first and a restart before you attempt to mount the ISO and run the repair. Apologies if you did all those steps.

    Thanks for your information.
    Please do that:

    Download the Tool "Regbak" from there regbak.zip (acelogix.com).
    Unzip the Package and then run Regbak and create a new Backup from you registry.
    Then open the explorer and navigate to "C:\Windows\RegBak\YourComputerName\15-11-2020\Windows\System32\config"
    and copy and paste the "System" Backup to your desktop, zip it and then share it here.

    In addition, please do this:
    Optional features - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums (tenforums.com)

    and share the MyInfo too.
    Since I'm gone for now, I'll come back later and look at the things.

    Friendly greetings

    Thanks to all for the help. However, I do think I may have solved it by getting the Peer services to work. I am not claiming complete victory yet but it is looking good. I found the solution and had to use the third option here. Troubleshoot Can't Start Peer Name Resolution Protocol Service - Techcult

    If you are not perform an in-place upgrade again, undo the changes in the registry.

    Otherwise you will have problems with future updates.
    Please download the package, unzip it and run the script to change the version number back to 19042.630.

    I did do an in-place upgrade again, as I mentioned above. It put me right back to version 19042.630 where I started. The cure to my problem, as I posted above, was to get the Peer services running and that link I posted told me how to do that.

    Waste of time for me, I just attempted an inplace upgrade to restore my missing recovery partition and it says it cant keep any of my files or programs due to an unsupported directory. ??

    Thanks for that, I am installing the cab now. I added install to the context menu

    This is on one of my older desktops with an 860EVO ssd.
    I saw that you can't run windows defender offline if your missing the recovery partition, so thought why not give it a go.

    Cab is at15%

    Looks like its a go for the repair install
    I have dual monitors so I am typing on one screen, while the install is running (took over entire screen of the other)
    Also temporarily have another win10 pc attached to another HDMI port on the monitor.
    I have set that one up for my boats's nav PC using opencpn. They only last a few years it seems in the boat. I wonder if its humid air or age, I only use old PC for that. But the boat PC is much better than my desktop. I tend to hold onto PC's till they are unusable.

    It ran and finished but it did not recreate any recovery partition, so is there another way to do that?
    I thought it would setup a recovery partition?
    Honestly it looks the same to me, not sure it did anything at all.
    And my search indexing is off.

    So do I have a recovery partition, is it invisible to disk management?
    No, Recovery is a folder on drive c

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>reagentc /info
    Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) and system reset configuration

    Information:

    Windows RE status: Enabled
    Windows RE location: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition2\Recovery\WindowsRE
    Boot Configuration Data (BCD) identifier: d7ac1cfc-2a76-11eb-ac8c-c7408937c4e1
    Recovery image location:
    Recovery image index: 0
    Custom image location:
    Custom image index: 0

    REAGENTC.EXE: Operation Successful.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>

    windows 10 missing recovery partition
    Bree answered this here

    - - - Updated - - -

    YES!, it can now do an offline defender scan. So the effort was worth it. I must have been missing the recovery section, and I wonder why it did not create a recovery partition, SSD is only half full.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Dont know, but after it did the defender offline scan, on the reboot, it said had to check disk, went thru all 3 stages and now its just spinning the thing round and round. I wonder if it's broken...

    cycled power button and its back up, wonder what happened.
