    Windows 10 - No Reset PC Option (Media Install Tool)


    broke my os and now it just loops, it flashes the windows logo on start and then promptly powers off, only to power on again and do the same thing... so i thought i would just do a reset by downloading the most recent media installation tool from ms's website, only to find that pc reset is no longer shown as an option.

    however i do have an old microsoft usb install drive from a system that i used years ago, it's a windows 10 home usb thumb drive whereas my current system is windows 10 pro - thing is the old thumb drive has reset pc as an option... so my question is can i use this drive or will it try to use windows 10 home files from the thumb to reset my pc?


    thanks!

    :)
