    ... the Intel Rapid Storage Technology disk driver as my system is running two SSDs in a Raid 0 configuration.
    This would truly be the 'works as desired' regarding RAID. I, adversely, had the issue that the windows install tried to update the old RAID driver but failed, leaving the system in an almost unusable state.
    Happened with both build 10240 and 10586. I still hope MS / Intel will fix it for the next major build...

    Anyway, for the inplace upgrade, using the same install disk as for the original installation, will work perfectly.

    Thanks for this useful post.

    both my older systems had this same issue as win10 auto installs a 13.XXXX series Driver by default which is not 100% compatible with older Intel Chipsets eg p45 or x58 in my case , once I learnt about the issue at Fernando's WinRaid Site I intergrated the 11.2.0.1006 driver into the Win10 Iso and all went well.

    The In-place Upgrade/Repair , per this tutorial seems to have fixed my Store and People App problems so thanks... great.

    It also added a new 450mb partition at the end of my C:\ as the new Recovery partition even though there was 500mb Recovery partition already in place. using other Tuts. I have moved it back to the 500mb partition and reclaimed the 450mb though.

    I recently replaced my 4 year old ssd due to a corrupt MBR, windows would consistently fail to boot until I rebuilt the bcd, and repaired the mbr.
    Once I got it booted, I cloned the drive to my new Samsung SSD, using the Samsung software but occasionally (I think due to the cloning of the corrupt mbr) the new ssd will not boot and I have to run startup repair to get it up and running.
    Question:
    Will doing a repair install within windows fix my booting problems and keep my user installed apps and settings?

    at this time, I am not interested in doing a clean install.

    Thx!

    you can use Minitool Partition Free to rebuild the MBR it can also be done from the command prompt with commands like fixboot and fixmbr etc ie basically what Startup Repair does.

    Thanks for the fast reply kbird!
    That is the exact procedure I used, but unfortunately I still get the occasional fail to boot with the new drive, and have to repeat that procedure to get it running... any other thoughts?
    And back to my original question:

    If you have Macrium Reflect Bootable Rescue Media, you can use it's boot repair option. It has never failed me, when Window can't do the job.

    Yes, but it is no different than using the tools discussed in this thread and takes a whole lot longer. Also, it involves writes to your ssd that you just don't need to do.
