    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. :)
