    Thanks for the reply.

    Performance is not really effected. I have a Win10 iso already made for the inplace upgrade. Just seems like a hassle to correct the issue.


    Anyone know what causes the issue ? MSN upgrades ?
    What happened when you tried to do the in place upgrade. "Just seems like a hassle to correct the issue" doesn't explain why you can't bring about the in-place upgrade to completion.

    I have not attempted to do the in-place upgrade. As stated, I do have the iso.

    To do an in-place upgrade of the operating system to fix a file error seems like a hassle to me, personally.

    What has caused the error can be many things, mostly a system file corruption or a driver compatibility issue. To that regard, you can always check Device Manager in Control Panel and see if you don't have any device with a yellow exclamation mark or a red X. If you do, which I really doubt, you will have to go to the manufacturer's site for that device and update the driver.

    On the other hand, it seems like you are 'scared' to do the in-place upgrade. I can guarantee you that it is not that difficult. I would suggest you put your act together and bite the bullet by following the steps in f14tomcat's referenced link above. But before you do, you can always try to copy/paste in an admin level command prompt window the following:

    sfc /scannow
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    echo this is a dummy line.

    This will probably take 10-15 minutes to run. Good luck!

    FWIW to those out there, I had a nightmare problem upgrading my laptop to Windows 10... all sorts of failures and errors, and then once I got upgraded and ported over to a SSD, I had all these issues with the start button etc, not working. Couldn't get the DISM to correct anything, SFC failed to do anything.

    Finally I did the in place upgrade to my existing Win 10 installation as mentioned in a few posts on this thread and it worked like a charm!

    I used Media Creation tool to create a bootable USB, ran startup while logged in, selected to keep all my files in place. It ran while I was on my lunch break and now everything works great!

    Torre, if you are still out there, IronZorg had perhaps a poor choice of words, but I think what could be better said is that it might not seem at first like you have a serious problem; however, once there are system files shown as corrupted by SFC, even just a little, those errors have a way of catching up to you later in a nasty way. Sometimes the effects are only minor at first. The longer the situation is allowed to continue, however, the more problems can develop, and greater the corruption that can occur. You may end up not being able to get good enough access to your computer later to do the repair. So it is better to do it now, before things go downhill.

    Why not stick with the DISM repair?


    Most answers to the original question of this thread seem to have gone towards using the in-place upgrade solution, because of the failure to get DISM to work. Post #36 very nicely brought the thread back to the original issue--which was: Is it possible to make the DISM + SFC repair work? Is there a reason why the answer proposed in #36 is not a good answer for many or most of those who have this error message with DISM and SFC?

    This thread cured my issues


    A few weeks ago my computer started giving me all sorts of issues, not booting, booting and freezing, giving me error message whenever I tried to use cmd.exe, or not letting me use it with administrator privileges and a whole host of nightmares. Sometimes it would boot and work correctly, at least for awhile, and sometimes it was no joy and I would have to manually turn it off and back on. I always back files up to an external hard drive but sure didn't want the expenses and hassle of buying a new computer. In the meantime, I kept getting messages that windows was not able to update.

    Occasionally the error message would center on kernel and I thought I had a corrupted sector on my HD or a corrupted file. I ran chkdsk /r and that did not help. I then tried SFC and that didn't help. Doing further research, I ran DISM with repair options and that didn't work but it gave me an error code that led to this thread.

    I tried to do what was suggested here by creating a thumb drive ISO to run it's setup from the machine Windows 10 to update but it repeatedly would hang up and not finish the set-up at 11 or 12%. Then I did further research and discovered an MS tool that will fix issues that prevent updating.

    It is found at: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...troubleshooter

    I ran the trouble shooter and it reported that it fixed the issues. I then was able to do the update from the thumb drive's set-up and all my files and apps are intact.

    I am hoping that has cured the issues.

    Another thread which addresses the original issue of this thread perhaps more completely is here:

    DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums

    However, what I found to be the issue that got in the way and confused myself and many other people, and caused a DISM repair to fail, is that the image file has to be of the exact same Version (e.g. Ver. 1511, Ver. 1607, etc.) as the Win 10 system being repaired. This also answers the question I asked about 3 weeks ago here, above (in #48): I asked, Isn't the answer in #36 a good answer? In fact, No, that answer was not quite good enough for some of us, because it doesn't mention that the downloaded image has to be of the same Version.

    Jackcutrone, I'm glad you were able to get your problem resolved, but it sounds to me like what you had going on was even more serious and complicated than the original problem stated here. But for future reference, I suggest you check out Brink's tutorial in the thread I cited above.
