Windows 10: Windows 10 freezes randomly

You don't use the right version for the install.wim. Try another iso from msdn, I had the same problem.

Please go back and edit your previous post and encapsulate all output between code brackets or highlight the text and click the hash tag symbol on the toolbar
- While the effort is appreciated, you're going way overboard and nothing in that output is helpful to what you're experiencing.
You're going off in every which direction and are making things harder on yourself. Please focus on one issue at a time, tackle it, and move on to the next. Please research what I've asked you to research on the Windows 8 forum (after doing the below first, as if specifying the correct source does not work, this will be pointless)
As far as to what MuchEvol said, where are you getting the install.wim you referenced from? If you didn't convert the install.esd to an install.wim yourself, then that install.wim is worthless to what you're trying to accomplish (the install.wim from the media creation tool is missing a substantial amount of data, with the normal format being an encrypted install.esd).
- Even with the correct index (index 4) of the install.esd to install.wim conversion, repairing an 800f081f error with a dism source specified is a 50/50 shot
- If it doesn't work, you will need to do a recovery install of Windows 10. This is performed by running the Windows 10 setup from within Windows and selecting the upgrade option (ensuring you keep all programs and files)
- Prior to doing so, you must download the media creation tool and download the most recent install iso. Please follow steps 1 - 4 from my post on Spiceworks to get the unmodified install.esd from the media creation tool
- If you don't have many applications installed, it would be better to simply format the partition and reinstall windows (with the resulting install.wim from the bullet above)

I know I've been going a bit all over. but so has my system issues. Last night I ran memtest from my hirens boot cd. no problems there, so i know my ram is still good. Ive installed asus GPU tweak for my factory OC card. dropped my GPU and memory clock frequencies by 50mhz and I also just installed the insider preview build. since I've had that installed, my cortanaUI app stopped failing, and no longer writing to bad blocks. My system seems stable once again, and personally I believe my issues are a combination of using Legacy hardware combined with nvidia storage, network controllers. I've read on a lot of other forums that nvidia and the new windows 10 are having a hard time together. as well as some factory clocked cards having issues. so far so good since I've received windows 10 build 10586.3 . I checked my event viewer, and seems like a couple of my initial issues may have cleared up.
That's good to know... I wouldn't have thought it would be the OC'ing as normally if an OC'd value is an issue, you notice it right away as the system becomes completely unstable (or for a gpu the video output may be completely non-existent, video output would be wonky, etc). Many systems won't POST if an OC'd value is a cause of instability, rebooting and changing the problem value back to default.
In regards to DISM, please run the following again and verify if you're still receiving the 800f081f error:
- dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
If you are, please refer to my prior post, as you may have to do a repair install. DISM is the achilles heel of Windows, as it is the only tool capable of repairing corruption of the WinSxS folder, which is what SFC relies on to fix system file corruption. If DISM cannot repair corruption, it's inefficient to try and narrow down exactly what file in which folder of the WinSxS directory is the cause and is faster and far simpler to simply perform a repair install.

seems to be back to normal. any more issues you guys will definitely be hearing more from me. all your help and time has been way more than helpful. much appreciated. been a trying time to get my PC stable. I kinda feel like a noob all over again with windows 10. I just hope this OS finally breaks in and feels like my old jeans again(windows 7) .
No problem at all.
Btw... Please edit your post from yesterday and put the output in a code box.
- For future reference, any time you paste output from a log or program, it should go into a code box. Not doing so makes whatever page of the thread the post is on extremely difficult to read
done, and done. yeah, makes for a lot of scrolling. sorry about that, like I said earlier in the thread, I'm not used to actually speaking on forums since 90% of the time someone's had the same issue as me with resolve.
I had this problem of hanging and managed to fix it with a lot of reading. I was a good boy and before upgrading my machine to windows10 installed the latest drivers and BIOS. Turned out that the new BIOS was the problem. For some reason it decided to activate some thing under the ADVANCED option in BIOS. Make sure these are all set to Disabled. Cool'n'Quiet / C1E / SVM / Core C6 State / HPC Mode / Apm Master Mode. I discovered after monitoring my voltages using AI Suit that Vcore was erratic and disabling these settings sorted that out for me, Save the new settings, reboot and try it. Can't do any harm. Motherboard is Crosshair V Formula Z. This explained to me how, when i reverted back to windows 7 it still happened and thought it was a hardware fault. Went out and bought a new motherboard processor memory and pump, replacing them one at a time. Did a lot of overtime for nothing as it turns out. I hope this helps at least some of you guys out there with the freezing issue.
During the first three attempts at installing windows 10, the process has frozen at 32% total installation and 6% on the "drivers and features" section. The entire process freezes and no animations play. No errors, after reboot from the freeze it...
I am on an Alienware Aurora R3 with Windows 7 Ultimate x64. I ran the media creation tool to upgrade to Windows 7, and it gets as far as 100% copying data. It then restarts, the dots circle once, and then they freeze. I force a restart and it...
Does anyone have this problem? A friend of mine recently installed Windows 10 and the computer started to freeze because of it. It was then downgraded back to Windows 8 but the problem persisted.
I have an ASUS Desktop with a Core i7 3770, 16GB Ram, an Nvidia GTX 970, and a 250 GB Intel SSD and a 2 TB HDD. Windows 8.1 is loaded on the SSD. I am trying to update to Windows 10 with the free upgrade icon in the bottom left corner since it say...
AMD FX-8350 @ 4.3GHz
GTX 970 4GB
So I have had an earlier build of Windows 10 TP on my system installed onto my SSD and I was using that as my daily driver for about a month or so. It worked great and I was...
