    Hi,

    To clarify, you want me to reboot into safe mode, then open the cmd window and run what - one of NavyLCDR's suggested commands?
    Yes, this one:

    Code:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:L:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
    Mount your ISO when in Safe Mode and change the command line's drive letter in case it has changed..

    I Don't see the SFC log file in CBS
    OK, let's set that one aside for now then.

    If @BretMan has Windows 10 Home installed, he needs to run the dism command on index 2 of the WIM file and not index 1:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:L:\sources\install.wim:2 /limitaccess

    It really sounds like the current Windows 10 installation is unrepairable, however, and a completely clean install is going to be required to fix it completely.

    What you have circled is a leftover from Microsoft. The ISO file the OP has downloaded is the full released version of Windows 10 version 1511 and it has Pro in index 1 and Home in index 2.

    According to TS and his System Specs he's running Pro X64 1511.
    Wish I knew what exactly is wrong with it but, yeah, sounds like a re-install is the only way out of this.

    What's new is my plan was to try the Safe Mode repair this morning. After a couple hours of it working normally, the system crashed. This is not unusual as it does this after a few days anyway of continuous/sleep operation. Actually less now than after I initially updated from Win7 to Win10 when I had no corrupted files. Anyway, it wouldn't reboot and would end at a black screen with a blinking underscore prompt. The HDD was not being accessed as per the indicator blinker light. I had the do a force shutdown, then startup and same result x2. Tried again but with F12 into boot menu and that worked, then from there selected HDD and it will go on the the login screen. It runs normally after that.

    I was able to get into Safe Mode and run NavyLCDR's commands. Both failed as before with the same error. The only difference is that the first command ran at the 20% ... 1 point for 19 minutes, instead of 13 minutes before the fail. The second command only ran 8 minutes and hardly accessed the HDD.

    Does anyone know if each time I run these commands if at least some files are being fixed each time? Should I try the setup.exe next - why is that risky? Please advise.

    I doubt it fixed anything on your machine. I don't feel it's risky to do a clean install but YMMV.

    Personally I'd recommend a clean install, you'll loose all personal data and will have to re-install all your software. So make a backup prior to doing this.

    So if I run the setup.exe from the mounted Win10_1511_English_x64.iso that will run a clean install or a repair install? Also what is "YMMV"?

    That would be a repair install. Your Mileage May Very.

    A clean install would be the recommended way to ensure the system is fully functional again. Except of course when a hardware problem is suspected.

    In order to perform a clean install you'd need either burn your ISO file's content to a DVD or copy all files from the mounted ISO to a USB stick (8Gb or higher). Boot off of either so setup will run and opt for a custom install so you can delete all (non-data) partitions. Windows setup will then install itself in the freed up empty space and create and format it by itself.
    See the tutorial for further guidance.
