Just did repair as noted above, everything seems to be here. Havent checked on all default stuff, but that can be fixed as it comes up.

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.
