    I do have the windows.iso which I've been mounting. I understood you to say there may be some compression issue with it. I'm an intermediate user, so if you suggest something, I'm following it to the letter even though I half understand what's going on. So I was following the instructions you gave which said to do it the other way. Anyway, I'll give your latest suggestion a try and report.

    Hi,

    Yes, that's why you need to use install.esd to create a new ISO file containing install.wim.

    ESD to ISO will do that for you if you pick option #1 from the menu.

    Once that is done you can mount to new ISO instead of the one you have now and re-run IMAGE HEALTH. It should work fine then.

    It seems like this is getting a heck of a lot more complicated than it has to be.

    1. Mount the Windows 10 ISO file. Mine is called Win10_1607_English_x64.iso because I downloaded it directly from Microsoft. When mounted it will open in it's own drive letter (virtual DVD). Mine opened in H: drive.

    2. Look in the new drive letter, mine is H: drive, Sources folder. See if there is an install.wim or install.esd file. It needs to be install.wim. If it ain't install.wim then just download the official ISO file from Microsoft:
    Windows 10 ISO

    3. Once you have the ISO file mounted, and once you have an install.wim file in the Sources folder of that mounted ISO file, then right click on the start icon, select Command Prompt (Admin), and run the following command:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:H:\Sources /LimitAccess

    The drive in red is the drive letter that resulted from mounting the ISO file.

    That's all there is to it:

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:H:\Sources /LimitAccess
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.14393.0
    
    Image Version: 10.0.14393.0
    
    [==========================100.0%==========================] The restore operation completed successfully.
    The operation completed successfully.
    In the time it took me to compose this post, it was done on my computer.

    Hi,

    2. Look in the new driver letter, mine is H: drive, Sources folder. See if there is an install.wim or install.esd file. It needs to be install.wim. If it ain't install.wim then just download the official ISO file from Microsoft:
    Windows 10 ISO
    It contains install.esd. Hence my suggestion of either converting that to a new ISO or to download the ISO straight from MS bypassing the extra step.

    Either way, what seems simple to us is not necessarily simple to a relatively new user.

    Cheers and thanks for chipping in,

    Ok, I'm not getting these new instructions, they assume I know more than I do currently. I downloaded the ESDtoISO, extracted it in its own new folder and see the readme file, BIN and ESDtoISO.cmd file. Following the readme, I turned off Windows Defender, ran ESDtoCMD.cmd as admin. which opens. Now I'm supposed to enter the path to the install.esd but it's not in the BIN. Where is it? Am I supposed to use the the install.esd from the old windows.iso you said may have compression issues? If so what do I do - mount that one, then copy that install.esd? If so to where? Then use that place as the path I enter in CMD?

    Just copy it from your mounted ISO to the root directory of ESD to ISO. Open the .cmd file with administrator rights and pick option 1 .
    Let it run, it will create a Windows installation ISO file with a install.wim in the "Sources" directory.

    "Just copy it from your mounted ISO to the root directory of ESD to ISO. " Ok but where is its root directory - the folder I downloaded it into?

    Hi,

    I take it you downloaded and unzipped ESD to ISO. It will have created two new folders. The top one contains an .rtf file and ESD to ISO.cmd. That's where you need to copy the install.esd file to.

    Once that's done do as per my instructions as mentioned above.

    Yes, as I said I did download it into its own new folder, then unzipped it and presented folder ISDtoISO. That folder has just one subfolder - BIN, not two as you said, plus the readme (rtf) and ESDtoISO.cmd file. So the install.esd from the other mounted iso is copied into there - that's the root?
