Windows 10: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
It shouldn't if it's the same language, edition, and version that you currently have installed.
Well I tried the iso rather than usb, must have messed up the usb creation somehow, repair done and windows store now works!
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
I have the same problem, the store opens and then closes, I am unable to download from it.
I have completed the two tutorials and done a clean install (also from a USB). Problem still there. All else works well.
Had several issues initially, turned out to be bitdefender firewall.
I am out of things to try re the store.
Edit, just saw your note re the ISO, will try that. Thanks.
I have another rather interesting problem being first seen with 10 going onto a 7 Home laptop and changing that over from the 32bit Home Premium to 64bit 10 Home flavor and upon arriving at the desktop nothing appeared in Settings and the Apps menu saw S and P up where the D and E letters were overlaying things! I will now be working on the clean install assuming 10 was activated but still missing thing during the upgrade.
As I started to say before I just saw another batched up upgrade here with a twist this time around of not seeing the Start button and as you know other things like a blank screen when going into Settings and not able to open Apps resulted in the immediate clean install to find out if the upgrade had actually activated before proceeding to go from the 32bit 7 Home Premium to 64bit 10 Pro. The second clean install going from the 32bit 10 Home to 64bit flavor is running nicely thank you!
But not everyone is in such a good place where they can always see that however as I found out head on when the first build's upgrade from 7 was pooched and that saw the upgrade repair work out surprisingly well. That's when the upgrade to repair and still keep many things intact while others packed away in the Windows.old was a big help for the first week of 10 anyways.
One other thing I continue to notice is that 10 has fewer folders seen at the root of C: while the Quick Access and six folders seen in File Explorer simply have the shortcuts to those found under "users". You no longer see the Perflogs folder on C; and the AppsData under your user account meaning less clutter.
I decided to redo the USB copy and then followed the tutorial. Went to plan until the "copy files" finished. I got a message that check disk was checking D drive (the USB dive with the new windows 10), after a couple of seconds it said repaired and proceeded with the install and all works!
Must have been something on the USB that was less than perfect but this time the system fixed it.
Great news Alex.
Thanks for posting all this... I will be saving it as "Keep-Reference... HOW to Ten"
Brink, thanks for your efforts on this, it is appreciated!
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?
