Windows 10 in-place reinstall

posted Dec 26, 2018, 11:20 AM by Danny Xu

Running an in-place upgrade worked to fix our instance of Windows 10 that couldn't otherwise be repaired with Command Prompt commands such as

SFC /scannow


DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth – neither of which would finish their operation on our installation.

SFC works correctly when run from a console in the preinstall environment (PE).  Component store corruption can be repaired from within Windows without an in place re-install.
