    Hi,

    OK.
    That may well be the problem.

    Copy the install.esd file to ESD to ISO :

    ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File

    Select option one and when done mount that ISO file instead and proceed with IMAGE HEALTH as suggested before.

    I didn't hear back from you so at the risk of creating a bigger problem than I already have, I tried changing Sources to Source and it wouldn't "take", stating something was in use, despite my having closed everything. So I rebooted and then I could make the change. Changing it to Source seemed to work and the cmd option 3 launched but only to another selection of just a few (not seven) and I chose the "Recommend" 2 which connects to the repair source. I then got another error stating: "Required Winlib-ImageX files not found" and as we determined before, that winlib file wasn't in the downloaded iso. It seems I'm very close but I need that winlib. Please advise.

    Hi,

    I was just looking at the 3 listing in the Image Health and it ends with ".../Source", not Sources (plural), the label which we gave the folder. Do you think that's the problem?
    No, that's not the problem.

    The IMAGE HEALTH folder contains a subdirectory called "Bin". It seems yours is missing and the menu should list 16 items too.
    So, in order to succeed get ESD to ISO, copy your install.esd file to its root directory and let it create an installation ISO that contains install.wim.
    When done it will have written the file in its own root directory. Dismount the previous Windows ISO and mount the new one instead.
    Make sure IMAGE HEALTH is complete and then run it as suggested.

    "So, in order to succeed get ESD to ISO, copy your install.esd file to its root directory and let it create an installation ISO that contains install.wim." You lost me with that.

    I stumbled around trying to make sense of the files a folders. I see that in C: directory ImageHealth.cmd is there as well as BIN. BIN contains 11 items including wimlib-imagex.exe. The mounted iso contains 9 items of which one the the folder sources, which contains 199 items of which one is install.esd (3,015,018KB).

    With Windows.iso mounted I then ran ImageHealth.cmd as administrator. CMD opens and I get 16 item to choose and I select #3 and then it goes to the next menu with three selections and I choose #2. It seems to launch ok now with "Exporting and mounting the source install.esd ..." After that was 100% done, next it shows "Deployment Image Servicing and Mngmt Tool v10.0.10586.0. Mount image ..." then "The operation completed successfully." and "Dism is restoring the online image health using the mounted source media ..." 100% then "Error: 0x800f081f" "The source file could not be found. Use the "Source" option to specify the location ..." Then it begins to unmount the image. Then I get some selections and I select #7 to run sfc scannow and it runs it and it 100% completes with "...found corrupted files...unable to fix some..." The resulting CBS log shows many "damaged" file repairs that didn't fix and some that did, some were corrupted and some states "hash mismatch".

    I tried again and got the same result except it may have fixed a few more files - not sure. If it's saying it can't find the files in sources to fix anything then I guess it didn't do anything. If that's the case some file/s must not be where they're supposed to be in order for the tool to access them and perform the repairs. You would know best. Please advise.

    Hi,

    "So, in order to succeed get ESD to ISO, copy your install.esd file to its root directory and let it create an installation ISO that contains install.wim." You lost me with that.
    The problem is that Dism which is the program that Image Health calls doesn't work very well with install.esd which is a highly compressed version of install.wim.

    Hence my instructions to create an ISO with install.wim using the .esd file from your ISO file.

    ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File

    Once done and the ISO file mounted, Image Health will then use that as a source to repair the corrupted file.

    Hope this helps,

    Ok. By the way, I really appreciate you sticking this out with me...

    I followed the instructions to find install.esd in C:\$windows.~BT and search for it there and also my entire C: drive. Not found. Where can I get it and where exactly do I put it?

    Hi,

    I was under the impression you had a Windows.iso file.
    If so mount it and you will find install.esd in the Sources directory.
    Copy that to ESD to ISO and rand that program by selecting menu item 1 to have it create a Windows ISO file with install.wim instead if the install.esd.

    If you don't then the media creation tool will create the ISO for you and the above routine still applies.

    What version of Windows are you running btw ? Run WINVER to find out.

    Better still. download straight in ISO format from MS;

    Wouldn't it be better to just download the official ISO file from Microsoft that has the official install.wim file in it?

    Windows 10 ISO
