    I’ll try again & post a screenshot, hopefully it wasn’t a fluke.
    Is this the screen you saw? This is booting from the MCT downloaded 1903 ISO on a machine that already has 1903 Pro installed. It came after selecting Windows 10 Pro as the edition to install.

    Edit: I get the same screen booting from the 1809 ISO on a machine with 1809 installed.

    Yes @Bree, that’s the screen.
    I had installed 1903 but wanted to do a clean install to test various things.

    That's always been there, a totally unnecessary option that has never worked. It was there in Windows 7, Windows 8 and now in Windows 10.

    Selecting Upgrade there will just tell you that to upgrade, you need to launch upgrade from desktop.

    Correct. As Kari mentioned, a repair install cannot be done at boot. It can only be done from within Windows 10.

    Confirmed. I've done just that and the 1903 ISO is no different from any previous one.

    I have always wondered why that selection is even shown, as it has never worked.

    Having thought about this more I wonder if the choice is more like a reset where it keeps everything except personal programs, however if it does nothing I too wonder why it’s there.
    Thanks to all who replied. :)

    I have done some not so smart things, i have took ownership with a tool, in the end I destroyed permissions and now I want to repair install. (I have added an Administrator User before I finally destroyed a part of permissions)

    But the problem is I can't see anything, i can't see any fonts related to windows programs, and when i open windows installer it is even worse i see only the menu bar, the hole "content" box is just invisible.
    I found a screen shot which looks similar,.



    My question is since i can't do that by booting from a stick, also not by native boot, is there a way to initiate that from Administrator CMD ( Troubleshoot -> Advencd Options -> Comand Prompt )

    Hello @Tenser, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Sorry to hear about you getting this issue.

    Unfortunately, a repair install can only be done from within Windows.

    What did you take ownership of? If not too bad, there may be an option to try to see if it may restore default permissions.

    Do you have any restore points available? If so, you could also try doing a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before your used the take ownership.

    Hello @Brink, and thank you very much for the warm welcome. :)

    Ok my brain is full of things, therefore sometimes it has to make place for other stuff.
    But i copy here what i wrote ~10days ago somewhere else.

    MySelf - 10 Days ago said:
    I installed long time ago "Easy Context Menu" and added when i press right click, the option to "take ownership" from a folder/disk.

    Also long time ago I had plugged in my old C:/ HDD from my old system, just to read some files, never had problems.

    Then one day, I randomly looked into the HDD without a big reason, and one folder didn't open, and i took ownership.

    After restart, when I tried to download from FF but it didn't let me and said something like no enough permission. When pressing windows start menu, a banner pops up where he wants to logout to fix startmenu but after logout nothing changed.

    I made a new admin user and another user which i wanted to maybe change to.

    I was stupid enough trying to fix after midnight, und i guess i ****ed it up.

    I have once run "takeown /S system /U username /P password /F "C:/" ", after restart, firefox doesn't open anymore.

    Then I tried reseting permissions with "ICACLS * /T /Q /C /RESET", now start menu firefox opens but all letters are kinda gone, at leat at every windows program and edge doesn't open, FirFox seem to work. But all Windows application have only few icons left nothing else.

    I read afterwards with reset the he might not know which user owns what.

    When I run icacls reset again after, I deleted 2nd User and Admin, then it is technically like before only my original user left. So after deleting all other users it should be more clear that he owns everything what is possible to own as normal user, and everything higher maybe for administrator or UAC style, meaning no own admin account only elevating kinda standard user for several tasks to admin?
