I'm creating a backup with Macrium now - do I need to put that on another flash drive? I assume it's not safe just to leave it on this PC...
    How did you make the ISO file? If it's from the URL I linked to, I've a suspicion you'd likely have downloaded version 1703 via the Media Creation tool. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it would try to upgrade you to the next version of Windows if you tried to install it.

    Thanks, F14 - finally deleted :/

    Dalchina, 2tb external arrived today - finally! Sorry to be so dense - I'm not sure just what to do in Macruim. I don't see a "backup Windows" option - under the "Disk Image" tab I can either select "Image selected disks on this computer", which looks to backup both my C and D drives, or I can "Create an image of the partitions required to backup and restore Windows" which looks like it would backup my C: drive (which is my Windows drive). Can I do the first? That way I have a backup of everything anyway, which would be good to have - could I still use it to restore if things go south?

    Many, many thanks - I think we're on the verge of this one!

    Use this one in blue above. Macrium will automatically choose the required partitions. That's what Dalchina was referring to when he said " Windows backup". Just a guess, but your 135GB will end up as about 80GB image. Good idea to verify it also.

    You'll see something similar to this:

    OK......process complete! Windows reinstalled, showing OS build 15063, which I understand is Creators Update.

    But.............still can't connect to Windows Update :/ When I first went to Windows Update, it says "no updates for now," then I hit refresh, and it can't connect. What the heck...still can't connect to download.microsoft.com. Any ideas? I'm afraid I might even start a support ticket with Microsoft............

    But I've reinstalled Windows, I can access download.microsoft.com from other devices on the same connection........what gives?

    Many thanks for all the help so far - I certainly owe you all!!

    For reference this is what I was referring to- it's exactly the same as the option f14tomcat directed you to- just shorter to type!

    Like Yogi Berra, "When you get to the fork in the road, take it." One less click, though. It's already there.
