    Very odd indeed.

    Never mind, it's not life-threatening, I'll wait to see if anyone replies to my original question about MCT.

    Just for clarification, please...

    In the Tutorial, I noticed this...

    The installation media (ex: ISO or USB) must be the same edition and same or newer build as your currently installed Windows 10. If it's not, then the repair install will fail.


    So, if I wanted to attempt a Repair Install, does this mean that I'd have to stop updating Windows until the MCT file version catches up with mine?

    And if so, how long before the MCT Tool might at least be equivalent to my version?

    When it says 'the same or newer build' that is referring to the major build number (eg. 19042) not the minor build number (eg. .....867). As long as the major build number is the same as or higher than that of your installed build, then you can use the ISO for a repair install. What you CANNOT do is use a 1909 ISO (18363) or earlier to repair a 2004/20H2 system (19041/19042). That is regarded as a downgrade and you won't be allowed to keep you files and installed apps.

    The MCT currently makes an ISO for 20H2 19042.631. You can use that to repair the current 19042.867. To bring you up to the current minor build the latest CU can be checked for and applied during the upgrade, or if you choose not to, then it will be applied at the next check for updates after the repair is completed.

    Of course it is! There are several languages above US English on that list, you just need to scroll list up. Scrolling can be done only with up / down arrow keys and / or mouse wheel, as the scroll bars are missing.

    My apologies, now that you mention it, I can see it, too. For my eyes, it's really difficult to see, until you mouse over it (compare my screenshot to yours).
