    Shouldn't the clean install method that's posted here be a 100% uncorrupted installation??I figured since I downloaded the package from microsoft directly the bootable USB should of been straight forward easy installation.. But it looks like something is wrong...I been trying to install the may cumulative feature update but the damn things getting caught at 20 % every time..I know what corrupted my os originally.It hadda be from my machine powering off during a system restore.Ever since then my laptops felt messed up with longer boot times but the main problem is none of the windows recovery options work for my machine except for this one anymore... Something happened that is making every recovery option fail..From reset pc, system restore and a bunch of others wouldn't work except for this clean install but now it looks like there's something wrong with this... Somebody please point me in the right direction!! I thought maybe a virus but nothing is popping on defender or Malwarebytes... I deleted the entire original C drive before trying this method anyway

    @Spartan@HIDevolution would it be possible to update the guide with some new photos and updated tweaks? It has been a while and I've seen some options done in newer different ways in this thread (like Windows Defender stuff).
    I know its a lot of work but it would be extremely helpful.

    If media or files were corrupted during download then it will be stuck at 20% or even fail after 99%.
    You can download uup dump and make a fresh ISO from UUP dump
    21H1 is current release and shares similar components from 20h1 and 20h1.

    The 20h1 update gets stuck at 20% every time I tried installing it.

    Last night I thought I fixed it..I went through all these different dism online guides, I downloaded a fresh iso with the Microsoft tool.. Mounted the ISO to my root drive then got a wmi source file to run with dism because on its own it couldn't locate the filed needed..Got all that done and it still ain't work lol but then seen you could extract the file I needred from the same wmi file haha...Anyway did that so I could put the correct source file in cmd prompt....Dism ended up successfully repairing whatever it does but still didn't fix what I needed it to haha so I guess I'll try your method

    Download correct Win version with Windows and Office ISO Download Tool and use Rufus for a clean install. Many have problems with updating from older Win version. Hence Microsoft push out this.....

    Microsoft pushes Windows 10 KB4023057 again to fix update issues
    Microsoft is rolling out the KB4023057 update again to all versions of Windows 10 to ensure that devices can successfully install new updates as they are released.

    Thank you!!!!
    This looks a lot more promising..I'm confident this will be the final Windows 10 install and reconfigure/optimize all microsofts useless ********..Haha it gets old after awhile but this one will be worth it so I don't have to worry about my OS devouring itself slowly and losing all my data..
    Thank you!!!
    Downloading now and will report back if everything's good.

    Thanks again.Im running through the different menus and settings now and i'm pretty sure everything is good now.I can actually use the Win 10 settings without it freezing and just installed the optional 21H1 cumulative update and it went through no problem.That one and a few others would get stuck at 20% before.

    Could this be caused by memory errors??At the moment my timings and everything are cool and memtest showed no errors but a couple weeks ago I was running with some pretty tight timings that started to pop errors...I put them back though after a day and tested again with memtest and the windows memory tool both said everything was good..

    Does anybody know, If when you split an SSD into 2 partitions in Windows 10 and then run Optimize which is basically Trim on one partition, Does the entire SSD get Trimmed of just that partition, It`s just i run Optimize in each partition and it may be unnecessary and a waste to do it twice.

    Thanks.

    Both partitions will be tripped automatically. And it will run a defrag once a month. If you run it from Defrag and Optimize you can pick the part you want to trim outside the regular maintenance task.
