Thank you Gregocker!

Yes, you send me the full registry key (that is why it is so big), and I used only the first key, other subkeys are related to installed materials.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96C-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
"Class"="MEDIA"
"ClassDesc"="@mmci.dll,-3000"
@="Sound, video and game controllers"
"IconPath"=hex(7):25,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,72,00,6f,00,6f,00,\
  74,00,25,00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,6d,\
  00,6d,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,2e,00,63,00,70,00,6c,00,2c,00,2d,00,33,00,30,00,\
  30,00,34,00,00,00,00,00
"LowerLogoVersion"="5.1"
"Installer32"="mmci.dll,MediaClassInstaller"
I will now reboot and see if my problem is solved...

cheers!

Thank You Grecoker!
my registry key seemed to be fixed, but i still got my Midi driver issue after reinstall.
It is weird, this is an other topics, but I can see my midi ports inside 32 bit applications, but can not use them as they are seen as already open. while with 64bit applications, I can see midi ports, and select them and use them.
My 32bit applications are no more able to open midi ports...
this is an other topics, I am looking on many different kind of support forum to see if something similar happens to someone else, can't find any clues...

Run sfc /scannow to check system file integrity.

If unfixable files or no resolution, then run a Repair Install from the desktop.

Windows 10, Home Clean Install
 
 

I think that one of those options will solve the problem.

All Step 5 of Repair install tutorial does is connect to Update servers to get newest updates and drivers into installer. If you select it (and I would) then it will show a download. Is this when it errors out? Check your connection. Try repeatedly.

Repairs installs almost never fail. Try both choices on Step 5 and report back exact error.

My issue was prior to conect internet, on step 5) I got an error reading the Hard Disk.
"Windows could not retrieve information on the hard discs drives of this computer."

It was realy a weird error!

After many tries, I finally succeed restoring a previous version of my system (full restore), but without trying to save my actual account/profile.

so finally my setup is fixed, back at its state 2 weeks ago.

Thank you all for all your kind help!
