    I tried post 44 again: I downloaded the media creation tool, saved it to desktop, ran the tool selecting create installation media for another pc, selected options English, Windows 10, and 64-bit, checked 'use the recommended options for this PC', dotted 'USB flash drive', it identified the USB stick I wanted to use and installed it. Then I opened the flash drive (left click), right clicked setup and selected run as administrator. The result was the same as before: "Windows" icon appeared for 30 sec and then I got the same message that Setup couldn't properly start.... reboot and try again. I noted a message in the first part of this instruction about disabling secure boot​?? Would that be an issue??

    That all sounds perfectly correct, except for running setup.exe with run as administrator. I've never had to do that - I've always been in an administrative account when trying to do the repair install and just double-click setup.exe. I don't think secure boot would have any effect (can't understand how it would), but I guess you could try turning it off - we've tried just about everything else.

    I did not try disabling secureboot , not yet anyway, I found myself guessing at too many settings and decided against it until I've learned a little more about it. So, I guess I'm hold for now.

    See if these help at all. I know they're W8, but should be the same/similar for W10.

    Maybe this will be more helpful?
    After installing Microsoft Update KB3133977 for Windows 7, some users may encounter a the system fail to boot into the operating system.

    EDIT: I honestly don't think this will make a difference, but I could be wrong.

    I'll try it next. The secureboot disable did not solve the problem.

    I looked at the last link but it seems to more on disabling secure boot. I did that with no effect and then re-enabled it. My motherboard seems to better facilitate that operation than other descriptions I've seen. I can just click-on, click-off.

    I noticed that my UEFI version is a 2013 build; would you recommend an update to see if it has any effect?

    Sure, try updating your firmware


    Please follow this tutorial to provide the current operating environment of your machine.
    Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs


    Boot to Safe mode: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...c-in-safe-mode
    Then restart in normal mode.

    Sounds silly - but it is a legitimate fix for some issues - don't know why.


    Is a flaky profile causing this on your machine?

    Launch Command Prompt (Admin)

    reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList" /s > %TEMP%\profList.txt

    exit

    Attach the profList.txt file in your temp folder to a new post - thanks.
    Enter %TEMP%\profList.txt in the file box on the Manage Attachment window and press the Upload button

    Since I touched on profiles, try creating a new local admin account, sign-in to the new account and try WU.

    Thanks
