  1. Repair Install Question


    I have used Windows 7 repair install on a couple of systems with less than satisfactory results. I currently have an issue with Windows 10 "Task Scheduler" and am considering a repair install. Anyone have any experience with Windows 10 on this issue?

    :)

  2. Repair Question

    My MICROSOFT Lumia phone is broken, I keep filing a claim for repair off Microsoft Mobile website. It says that it will email me in 2-3 hours. I call in after 2-3 hours and they say that it did not go through. I ask why and they "don't" know why it does
    not go through. They just tell me to submit tommorrow.

    How do I get the email to get my device repaired????

    . We'd like to help. What is the model of your phone? Were you able to send it for repair? Also, can you tell us more what happened to it? We'll wait for your reply.

    Repair Install Question

    Hi,
    You can mount the W10 ISO and run setup.exe from within the operating system. However, you might just want to try a RESET first - it's pretty much the same thing. Just make sure your data is backed up first.

  5. Thanks for the reply, but it doesn't answer my question. See the following link:

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    I wanted a first-hand opinion regarding the results of a "repair" install.

    I did a repair install about eight months ago on one of the technical preview builds. It went exactly like the tutorial. If you can, either print out the tutorial or have it on a tablet or laptop to follow as you do the steps. It looks harder to do than it is.

    Repair Install Question

    After having done some repair installs in previous Windows versions, I noticed that Windows removes any updates and it is like installing first time from the CD. This means that any hotfix or whatever Windows updates may have been installed they must be done again. For example when done in Windows XP, you were returned to Internet Explorer 6 and you had to reinstall Internet Explorer 8. Similar for newer windows versions. Other than that you shouldn't have any problems and of course you keep your applications and data. If you have upgraded to a newer build that the installation media you will either return to the older build and have to upgrade again or you will get a message that you cannot install Windows in this computer.

  9. If I get the message that "you cannot install Windows in this computer" does that render the system without an operating system or does it revert to the prior install?

    No, it just means you cannot do an in-place repair installation using this DVD because you have a newer version (build) installed. You can do it only with media created with the same or newer build than you have.
