    I did SFC /scannow until it didn't find any errors, but is there any advantage to using DISM to reload the cache anyway?

    Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool


    It would now seem that at least part of my W10 problem is down to my own fault – albeit very unwittingly!

    I am guessing, but it looks like the following: My computer didn’t appear to be running well - sluggish – so I thought I had better clean it up – and used Clean Master for PC, and it now looks like this cleaned up things it should not have done! Anyway, I tried to do the “Return to Windows 8.1” option in W10, and immediately I was told that I couldn’t do this because the data wasn’t there!

    So I am left with the option of trying the system restore from backup I made.

    Or maybe:

    I wanted to ask about using the: “Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool”

    You get two options = Upgrade this PC now = Create media for another PC

    My questions are:

    1) If I wanted to download an ISO as a source for the corrupted/missing files (restorehealth), which option do I use?

    2) Would it be possible to use the "Upgrade this PC now" option to just repair the present W10? (or would this remove everything – all my data etc - that is on my computer – or cause other problems?) Or maybe it is just not possible to do this, that at some point it tells W10 is already installed – at any rate I don’t want to be experimenting - just looking for a solution (not more or even worse problems)

    I was able to clean up the component store corruption, by doing a repair install within W10 itself. I had W10 on a USB flash drive and plugged it in while W10 was running. It saved all my Apps/Programs, settings and drivers when it was done. The only thing I needed to download once again were the Windows Updates.

    Thanks for the reply LittleJay - very glad to hear it - but thought you had used a W7 image to return to 7?

    I'm a bit of a dummy in these things so I will have to go through this slowly.

    Editing the next bits - because I found some information: = I now have a 4 GB Flash stick with nothing on it plugged in to my computer and in process of downloading W10 through option = Media creation tool = Create installation media for another PC = (selected option) USB flash drive = (is now in process of download to 4 GB Flash Drive Stick (hope 4 GB is large enough!)


    Okay, so I gather you just plugged the drive in while your PC was running W10 - and it just automatically started a new (second) upgrade to W10? (but kept all your data and stuff?) is this right so far? if not please tell me what I have got wrong!

    Why could you not use the Flash Drive as source to repair corruptions in restorehealth?

    and another question:

    If this plugging in the Flash Drive really does start a new (second) upgrade/installation of W10 as I think you are saying - would it then be possible for me to have the German version on my 4GB Flash (or does language selection come later???) because the first upgrade I did in English - but because I live in Germany the audio Cortana commands does not work in mixed language/settings/installation ? (mind you this last part is not the most important - most important is that my computer runs okay with W10 - with no damage that causes problems in future)

    Yes, I did return to W7, but then remembered I had fixes Component Store corruption on my W8.1 Pro install with an in place upgrade and it worked. Best of all I didn't lose any setting or software installs.

    4 Gbs should be enough you if install the single bit version. That is either the 32 bit or 64 bit, whichever you are running.

    Yes, that is correct.

    I tried, but I couldn't get it to work. But I knew from past experience that Component Store corruption could be fixed with an in place upgrade, because I did it with my W8.1 Pro install a few months ago.

    and another question:

    If this plugging in the Flash Drive really does start a new (second) upgrade/installation of W10 as I think you are saying - would it then be possible for me to have the German version on my 4GB Flash (or does language selection come later???) because the first upgrade I did in English - but because I live in Germany the audio Cortana commands does not work in mixed language/settings/installation ? (mind you this last part is not the most important - most important is that my computer runs okay with W10 - with no damage that causes problems in future)

    I have never tried it with anything but the English version, so I really can't give you an answer to that question. Sorry.

    Okay LittleJay thanks a lot for making this clearer - really appreciate it - maybe I should just forget the German version idea - unless someone else can shed more light on this idea!

    So now I have three options - use the Windows 8.1 backup to restore 8.1 - try to get restorehealth to use the Flash Drive as source and the command would be - I guess ? =
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:J:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess (J: is my 4GB flash drive) -
    or I can try what you have done and just plug Flash drive while W10 is running and let it do its thing = hopefully an upgrade without losing anything!

    I guess I am a bit of a tech coward since I think I too would rather be fishing than doing this - sounds like lots more fun and far more relaxing - but I will probably first try to get restorehealth to use the Flash Drive as source (probably fail like yours did but for me the easiest option as I am scared of doing something wrong and losing everything - although I still have my W8.1 backup - if it works, never done something like this before) and then might try the plugging...and if all fails...my last hope the 8.1 backup restore!

    If anybody has experience about trying to use a German Flash version when my first upgrade was English - then please let me know

    Thanks again LittleJay - have fun with the fish - I feel like a fish out of the water at the moment

    You are welcome! I hope you can get things sorted. The way I experiment without fear of screwing things up is that I use Macrium Reflect to create a system image on a separate drive before I proceed. That way, if things don't go as planned, I simply restore the image and put things back to the way they were.

    It seems that a repair-install of Windows 10 Pro finally fixed my corrupt files. But I'm lost as to why this method fixed the problem, when a clean install did not?

    A repair-install of Windows 10 Pro is what I wanted to do, but the installer was asking for a product key and I couldn't go further. So my first clean install ended up being Windows 10 Home, that explains why the repair-install was not starting. I wonder if this is happening because of Windows 10 is being installed on a SSD? The important thing is I got it fixed now.
