    Can't open start menu after updating to 1151


    So I got the 1151 update today. After the update, I could not open the Start menu.
    Code:
    SFC /scannow
    says that there are corrupt files that it can not fix. I found out that I should run
    Code:
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:E:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess
    So I plug in my win10 USB and ran the command in PowerShell as admin, and I get that it can not find the file, I moved Install.wim to C:\ same thing. So then I tried to download the .iso file with Media create tool, it gives me the same error.

    I have searched around all day and the only response that I find is to use the Install.wim file, which the computer refuses to find.

    The error I get with powershell,

    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:F:\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10586.0
    
    Image Version: 10.0.10586.0

    The source files could not be found.
    Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077.

    Use the following command line instead and run it in elevated command prompt :

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:E:\sources\install.esd:1 /limitaccess

    Reason :
    You used a dism command line which requires Install.wim file.
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:E:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

    However, your iso file has Install.esd file instead.
    That is why you received " Source files could not be found " error message.

    I have both install.wim and install.esd files. install.wim on my boot USB and install .esd on the win10.ISO

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log
    I tried alot of different DISM commands, and when I was looking around and found that some people had success with a script, but the links I found for the script went to a dropbox folder where the file no longer exist, don't know if it became obsolete or stopped working. The post where from around end of 2015.

    You started with .............Source:esd:E: > then C > and now G.

    May I ask if you are using the correct drive letter ?
    The drive letter must be the same one the iso file is mounted on.

    Why don't we start it over from scratch ?
    Disregard what has been transpired.

    Please use the Tech bench link below and download your version of Windows 10 iso file.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/techbench

    Once you have the iso downloaded, right click at the ISO > click Mount > leave it there.

    Then open the elevated command prompt and copy and paste this................

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:H:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    Note : H is the drive where the iso is mounted. Change it if your driver letter is different.

    When it is completed, you should get the report that the operation is successful.
    Now run the sfc /scannow again. It should be ok this time.

    In F:\ I have
    Install.wim, that I extracted from my boot usb that I used when I first installed Win10
    Windows.iso, that I downloaded from the windows media creation tool yesterday, (has the .esd file)
    Win10_1511_2_English_x64.iso, that I got with the techbench link above. (has the .wim file)

    I mount the .iso files in G:\ so my command becomes
    Code:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:G:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
    with the Win10_1511_2_English_x64.iso I just downloaded.

    I'm using powershell that is in C:\WINDOWS\system32 and run it as admin.
    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:G:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

    Edit:
    I found Start menu troubleshooter at Troubleshoot problems opening the Start menu or Cortana - Windows Help, ran that, twice, and now it works, sfc /scannow gives me no errors too.
