I don't know but I have seen screens telling me that Windows will not start suggesting that I reinstall, which I do not do. My 10 started life as a 7. I had 7 for some years almost entirely without grief. The friend I mentioned above has sometimes got his system back by just restoring the MBR.

Yes, it is an image, C: is wiped before restoration.
