I have Windows 10 Pro. After enabling IIS, I do not see Default Website under C:\inetpub\wwwroot\ and when I try to use a Create Website dialog, some of the options are missing and an OK button is disabled (grayed out). I enabled and disabled IIS with ALL
options several times, with all required reboots, nothing helps. Here are the details:
After enabling IIS and Windows Process Activation Services (as others recommend), C:\inetpub\wwwroot is created, but the Default Web site is not created, see Image 1:
Then when I open IIS Manager and open Add Website dialog, it appears that HTTP binding in the drop-down is missing, and the OK button is greyed out.
I checked with: "net start http" - and it says that: "The requested service has already been started."
This is how my dialog looks like:

I found the solution at:
It looks like config files are corrupted in C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config
Uninstall IIS and WAS, then delete these files. Reboot the system. Copy "fresh" config files into C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config (I took them from Hyper-V VM on my system).
Enable IIS and it should work, it worked for me!
