Windows 10: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
I signed in the MS admin account, verified, and got the attached when I tried to DL the ISO About ready to toss the towel. Any other ideas?
You don't need to sign in to your Microsoft account online at Microsoft to be able to download a Windows 10 ISO file though.
Will try it this way. All my accounts are admin so shouldn't be a problem. In the meantime, I did another search of the registry and found two mentions. Now that I found them what do I do with them. Guess I had a misspell the first search.
Didn't help any. see attached

Are you able to sign in to any one of the administrator accounts?
yes, all of them.
Then you should be able to download the ISO and do a repair install.

I still don't know the significance of the two folders I asked about several replies ago
Also, a\couple of replies ago I indicated that I found the "dan" logon in the registry , two mentions, and asked now that I found them I didn't know what to do, and asked for your advice. 2 attachments were included.

I can't seem to find a Windows 10 build 10240 repair and reinstall method, if there is one, as I understand you have to repair in "Like Kind", correct?
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:

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?
