    If you are attempting to do an In-Place Upgrade...

    Thank you! Would this work with USB also?
    I don't have a DVD drive on my laptop.
    I have already tried Windows Tool to reinstall Windows 10 but it got stuck on 56% for 12 hours so I had to turn it off eventually.

    You don't need a USB stick or a DVD to do an In-Place upgrade.
    Just follow the directions I've posted above.
    On my computer (listed in my specs), it took about 40 minutes total to do an In-Place upgrade.


    If you're not familiar with backup software or Macrium Reflect, here is a quickie guide... when making the rescue media, use a USB stick.

    Note:

    I would remove the registry entry that the Anoop article suggested you place in the registry.
    I've done 3-4 In-Place upgrades, and I don't have that entry in my registry.

    Aha ok! My AllowInPlaceUpgrade in my registry looks just like that, 0x00000001(1)
    So what should I remove more exactly? (thanks!)

    Right click AllowInPlaceUpgrade and delete it.

    From MY understanding of that article... that is some automatic In-Place upgrade.
    It would be a terrible shame if you did the In-Place upgrade manually, and then within 48 hours, Windows tried to do it automatically.

    Keep in mind, that I have never heard of a way to do an In-Place upgrade automatically.
    Many, many people have done In-Place upgrades on here... and all have done them manually, like in the instructions I posted.




    All that an In-Place upgrade does... is repair Windows, while leaving your programs and files untouched.

    Ok the AllowInPlaceUpgrade is deleted. So when I now follow the instructions on this page I get the yes and no questions to reply in when runnning the code given in this thread. What should I reply to them? Yes to all?

    Does anyone know why there's no fix from Microsoft of KB5008212 as there seem to be lots of us having this issue with this kb and I read somewhere that it has to do with a previous kb blocking this kb to be installed (and all further kb's). Do you know why you get this error codes from this specific KB?
    I can't even get it downloaded manually from the Windows Catalog, it gets stuck or it downloads to 100% but then "fail to be installed".

    Just do this....



    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade



    Here is the short version of the In-place upgrade tutorial...

    DISABLE non-Microsoft:
    a) antivirus software
    b) firewall software
    c) drive encryption software

    Make a full OS backup with a program like Macrium Reflect (free)
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free

    Go here and get the Media Creation Tool and save it to your desktop.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    RUN the Media Creation Tool and use it to: Create an ISO image... save IT to your desktop.
    This will be the latest version of the ISO image.




    Right click the ISO image and choose: MOUNT
    Open File Explorer and you will see a new drive letter. It will "look" like a DVD optical drive.
    Double click the new drive letter to open it.
    Find setup.exe and double click it to start the in-place upgrade.

    Choose the Keep personal files and apps option.

    After it's all done... to UNmount the ISO image, right click the new drive letter and choose: EJECT.


    The ONLY thing you will lose is some of your personalizations. Your programs and data will be intact.




    Use Option One, here, to download the Windows ISO image using the Media Creation Tool...

    Download Windows 10 ISO File

    When you get the ISO image downloaded, and then MOUNT it... it will "look" like this, in File Explorer...

    It's not really a DVD drive... it just "looks" like one.
    Then you just double click setup.exe to start the In-Place upgrade.

    When it's all done.... then your Windows Updates should work again.
    The first time I had to do this was to go from Windows version 1909 to 2004.
    For some reason it just wouldn't do that feature update.

    Long story short... the In-Place upgrade fixed it.



    On a side note... when ready, and if your computer is compatible... there's a way to use the In-Place upgrade to go from Windows 10 to Windows 11. You just do an In-Place upgrade on Windows 10, with a Windows 11 ISO.
    That way you won't have to re-install all your programs.

    The In-Place upgrade is the best thing Microsoft ever invented.
    There's probably even a way to use the In-Place upgrade to... cook your breakfast.

    So I'm on the ISO installation now and it's downloading and searching for updates. And now it's checking if it can be installed, yes (check!) All clear. And ok now it's Installing W10. I'm holding my breath!
