Microsoft will expand the possibilities yet with a seemingly better solution.
Windows, including the current version of Windows 11, can be restored and reinstalled in several ways, because in addition to the classic restart from scratch, factory reset is also an option. However, this requires the source, i.e. raw files from which the installation or recovery can be performed. Here too, there are some options on how to provide it, but Microsoft may feel there is some inconvenience at this point, which could perhaps be improved.
Because of the above, a new reinstallation method is now available for Insider users, the essence of which is to use Windows Update to obtain the source files. Its essence is that it downloads and installs the current version of the operating system, without removing user files, settings or installed applications. In theory, this would be the easiest way to make this system semi-recoverable without having to work on reconfiguring.
The final version of the new reinstall option is expected to arrive in one of the next major Windows updates.
