Thx, I'll check that out. As for contributing help, I seem to be able to mess more up than I fix, but I'll contribute when possible. ;-)
Then best get a system image program like Macrium Reflect(paid or free, which is good enough actually):

And this thread in the forums is where you can see when there is an update, and if you should update the recovery drive:

Hello everyone, I want to ask something
So, I'm doing an In-place Upgrade right now without turning off secure boot in my UEFI settings.
Will there any errors or something that can ruin my system?
Thanks in advance.

No sir, should not be a problem. You're already up and running in the OS when you start the in-place upgrade/repair. It will prep the files it needs and boot a few times, but because it's booting as part of the process, there will be no issues. The UEFI Safe Boot deals with booting from external media, like DVDs or a USB thumb drive.
Hope this helps, and good luck with your repair! TC
Do a good system image backup first, just to be safe. Good practice.
Ah, I see. Thanks for your fast reply

You're welcome! To be safe, as always, do a backup first. Good luck. TC

This tutorial will show you how to do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything. Is this tutorial just for an upgrade? Or can I use this method to repair my Windows 10 Pro install, while keeping all of my installed programs? Thanks
Hello dlfetters48, and welcome to Ten Forums.
Yes, you can use a Windows 10 DVD as well. When you open the DVD, you would just pick up at step 4C.
A repair install is used to repair your current installation by basically doing an in-place upgrade using the same build so you don't lose anything during the process.
My PC has been Blue Screening every time that I put an USB stick in my front USB ports. What are the chances that this method will solve this? Thank You Brink for your earlier quick reply!!
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?
