Install and Repair Windows Media Creation Tool

There are two other ways for you to upgrade your Windows 10 PC.

       1. Windows Update

The Windows update will install add latest security updates, driver updates and software’s updates to your OS build version. However, it does not change or update to the latest build version interface, and It takes a very long time to update it.

      2. Windows Upgrade Assistant

I consider it the most horrible way to update your Windows 10 PC.

I have recently used Windows upgrade assistant to update the OS to latest security files & it downloaded 4GB of files.

The most interesting part is that it updated the Windows 10 PC, but it failed to add the latest user interface and features, which is absurd because it downloaded 4GB worth of files.

The biggest flaw is the time it takes to install, and it took 4-hours to install it.

Step 7: Remember, Windows media creation tool helps you to download the latest updates, but it also has flaws. During the update, the media creation tool freezes your computer, and you don’t want that to happen. I recommend you to go to control panel > network & Internet > network connections, and select the WIFI or LAN connection, then right-click the mouse to disable it.

Step 11: The latest updates will begin to install on your computer, and the repair process is different, but I will show you later on.

The computer will take twenty minutes to half an hour to complete the Installation process because Windows 10 adding new features and updating the interface, so it takes time.

Step 12: You will boot back to the home screen, and go to settings to check if the update was successful. The easiest way to find it to look at the settings interface because it has been updated with a transparent background.
