    So I was stupid and uninstalled all the windows 10 apps, ran some tweaks and a bunch of other s**t and somehow broke a few things that nobody on earth knows how to fix... So finally I decided to do a reset pc + choosing to keep files


    Well I tired it twice and it failed. So now I can't even do that...

    I was wondering if I could run my setup.exe off the install disk and choose to do an "upgrade" and force it to do a repair that way?

    First see if it is even repairable:
    In ADMIN Cmd Prompt Type
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    When you use the /CheckHealth argument, the DISM tool will report whether the image is healthy, repairable, or non-repairable. If the image is non-repairable, you should discard the image and start again. If the image is repairable:D


    Reset might work if you keep nothing, see all your files are messed up, so no you cannot keep them.

    Do you have backup image you made after clean install

    Yes if current OS is running you can do this

    Nothing is corrupt, as the dism states also.

    I have Windows 10 pro, so I can force an upgrade to the same windows 10 pro and it should work then?

    Bring up Admin cmd prompt type sfc /scannow see what that says:D


    If that shows errors go ahead and click on ISO/mount/setup while OS is running and do it again and save nothing, if you save anything, you will be saving errors your trying to get rid of:D
