Hi; i'm having to reinstall windows 10 on the pc that i have Pro on. I made a bootable backup of the original drive that i did an generic windows uninstall on, so i can put it back into the machine if additional uninstall steps are needed. I had to do an uninstall a couple of years ago and ended up with a mess that Danr had to help me with - ended up being very complicated and took a long time to get it resolved. So i'm a little worried that i've started down that trail again. To some up, i had a w10 boot drive with pro installed on it. i removed pro with a standard windows uninstall, and then made an image backup of that boot drive. I then booted from the new image drive and used media creation tool to create a w10 install thumb drive. i erased the entire image drive and installed w10. i ca put the original drive back in (it was having an issue with random freezing - usually days apart) to "finish" the uninstall so Videoredo knows i've uninstalled it. I'd like to eventually install that copy on a different PC. Thanks for your help.
