After the DVD drive disappeared the only option is RESET as Recovery is not possible

mysorian asked on

The recent update about 10 days ago made by DVD drive disappear. I normally do not use this drive but I was trying to create a virtual drive to mount an .ISO file and that is when I found that the drive has disappeared. I cannot recover to an earlier update as that option is greyed out.

The only option is resetting the PC. I have lots and lots of programs installed and those needs reinstalling.

What Microsoft should do if they are serious about this 'anniversary' stuff and all is to have  standby arrangement if things do not work as expected. This is downright ridiculous.

Has Microsoft come up with a solution?
