  1. recovering win 10 from USB compatibility report issue


    Windows 10 became corrupted and won't restart. I am trying to recover this without losing documents.


    I've tried the Windows 10 recovery tool which fails, I've checked restoring to checkpoints and rolling back upgrades and neither of these options do anything. I've then tried running bootrec options from the command line, these don't work either. bootrec \scanos option tells me I have zero windows installations.


    So I created a recovery USB, after a bit of fiddling with the dos boot sequence I managed to get the windows installation application to run from this. Starting this gives me a repair option, which takes me to the windows 10 recovery tool where I started from and gets the same results. I am therefore left with an install option.


    Using this, accept the licence and am given a choice between "upgrade" and "custom" installs. the upgrade keeps files and settings so I think I need this one.


    However when I choose this, I get a Compatibility Report which blocks progress. Basically it says I can't upgrade if I start my computer using installation media. However as Windows is corrupt, this is the only option I have.


    Any suggestions please?


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Where's the Windows 10 compatibility report?

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are unable to get the compatibility report.

    I will certainly help you with this.

    Please provide the below information.

    1. From which operating system you upgraded to Windows 10?

    2. Did you check the desktop screen for the report?

    I would suggest you to go through the below steps:

    Steps: If you are unable to find the file on desktop, you can try to check in the system drive.


    • Press Windows key+E.

    • Double click on C: drive (default system drive).

    • On the top right corner in the search bar, type the compatibility file name and search

    Please post back with the status of the issue and we will be glad to assist you further.

  3. Win 10 compatability Report

    The report was last run June 10/16. Which states the video card is not compatable. I have since upgraded the video card and the report never re-runs. I want to upgrade from Win 7 Home 32 bit.

    I have seen where you can manually get the report to run but this doesn't work either.

    Any suggestions ?

    Thank You
     
  4. recovering win 10 from USB compatibility report issue

    Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks
