Because my Windows 10 machine won't start correctly, I'd like to make a Startup Repair USB drive. Apparently, the main way to do this is from within Windows 10, but that's obviously not an option.

 

I have access to a Windows 7 computer. If I make a Startup Repair drive there, will it work on Windows 10?

 

If not, can I at least use it to boot my computer and run chkdsk and sfc?

 

Is there some website where (using my other computer) I can download the image of the Windows 10 Startup Repair, or something like that?

Hi,

 

You can download Windows 10 from Microsoft and use the Media Creation Tool to create an ISO and burn a DVD, the Recovery Options are included on the install DVD.

If I boot with this drive, will it try to reinstall Windows 10? I just want to try some diagnostics and download some files first.

Before starting the install it shows the option to Repair the Computer.
