    I would always recommend to back up anything that you don't want to lost to be safe.

    The repair install can vary per system on how long it may take to finish from 20 minutes to overnight depending on much data and corruption there is.

    Update- I did a repair install and after about 2 hours, I was up and running in my desktop. I ran 'sfc /verifyonly' and it said 'Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations'. I'm really happy! Thank you brink and derekimo, I really do appreciate your help! Now I can image my laptop using macrium and restore it on my new SSD. Hopefully the restore goes well!

    Hello jgilbert, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, you can run a SFC scan with a UEFI installation.

    You would want to run SFC on your Windows C: drive.
