    So are you saying that I will lose my precious version of WordPerfect?? LOL!! It's not that old. X8 is about 3 years old and newer than the version of Word I have (2010). I know everyone uses Word these days but WP is just so much easier to use (for me) than Word. I've used WordPerfect since the DOS days (yes, I am old) and I will keep WP until they pry it from my dead keyboard!
    You shouldn't lose any installed software.

    However, I always recommend creating an image first to be safe.

    I set up a new laptop and after all was done I ran an SFC scan and it found errors. So then I did the 3 Dism commands and it found no issues. So I tried a few more sfc scans and it kept finding errors so I decided to do a repair install following this tutorial and it went great, SFC now finds no integrity violations. Thanks!

    Not a big deal but one of the final screens when doing the repair/upgrade install is different that what is shown in the tutorial. Instead of what's in the image in part 13 ("Upgrading Windows") of the tutorial it shows this:

    But without the light, lol. I remember when I first tried this a week ago to resolve an issue with another laptop when I saw this screen it made me consider that I wasn't doing the repair/upgrade properly because it was different than what was shown in tutorial - it didn't show "Upgrading windows" with the circle. I imagine at one time it showed it like that but I suppose it changed? Either that or my version of windows shows it like this? Or because I used media creation tool? Anyway, like I said, not a big deal but thought I would mention it. Thanks again.

    Hello Tom,

    Yeah, the screens can vary. I'll run a repair install tomorrow to verify and get any needed updated screenshots.
