    Windows 10

    :( DISM (Error 0x800f081f) and SFC (Failed to Repair)


    I was having some issues with Cortana on the recently released windows 10, so decided to run a SFC /Scan Now and DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /restorehealth.

    DISM Failed with

    "Error: 0x800f081f



    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 Configure a Windows Repair Source.


    The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log"


    The log is here: https://app.box.com/s/9ing5w3gs7b538d8nzqvz7r4y0msr78r

    I could not understand the errors, only that it can't seem to find the source and google searching has gotten me no where fast.

    SFC Fails with:

    "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix someof them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios."

    Again I have had no luck in finding a fix.

    CBS log is here: https://app.box.com/s/0zrlj0dnfx0mcjpoen7olqqawy1rp1ck

    Have tried mounting an image of win 10 and pointing DISM to it using

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:G:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess



    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.10240.16384



    Image Version: 10.0.10240.16384


    [==========================100.0%================== ========]



    Error: 0x800f081f




    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 Configure a Windows Repair Source.

    but as you can see the same issue occurred

    Thanks in advance for your kind assistance.

    Error: 0x800f081f on Windows 10 after running DISM


    I am also having the same error message (0x800f081f) after running sfc /scannow on Windows 10. In my case, it's not because of any issue with Cortana, but just a routine check to see if the upgrade to Windows 10 I just made two days ago was working fine.

    I have already tried the following, but to no avail:
    -dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /StartComponentCleanup
    -sfc /scannow
    -dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    -sfc /scannow

    One thing I realized I forgot though is to configure Group Policy for feature On demand. Right now, I am in the middle of running "chkdsk C: /R" and when it's over I will configure group Policy for feature On demand. Then, I will run the aforementioned command lines again and see if I'll come up with a better outcome this time around. I'll post back to let you Know.

    No luck with my proposed attempt (above). I have tried it many times and it didn't work. I even tried this famous (or not so famous) command line:
    "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:E:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess"

    where I replaced E by the letter of the DVD drive containing the .iso file used to do the initial install of Windows 10. No success there either. I am getting really aggravated and frustrated. My only hope is to try to follow the instructions written by Brink the forum's administrator on July 04, 2015: DISM-Repair Windows 10 image.

    What repaired the component store corruption for me was using a W10 ISO to create a bootable flash drive and then running an in place upgrade from within my W10 installation. It saves all your installed programs and files, but you will need to redo any Windows updates.

    Appears to be a bug. I got it to work by pointing DISM to the install.wim file in the ISO.

    Error: 0x800f081f and DISM


    Hi Brink,

    Your tutorial regarding this error (see title) is wonderfully written and I give you two thumbs up, but so far no joy for me. I have tried everything in your tutorial from running all the steps suggested as much in an elevated Command Prompt as in PowerShell to no avail. I have attached the "sfcdetails.text" file for you to check out and see if you can come up with any valid suggestions with regard to my case.

    I am a little bit hesitant to refresh Windows 10 since I have lots of applications and it will be mind-boggling to reinstall all of them. Below you have either a screenshot or a copy/paste of all the steps I have tried so far:

    In response to LittleJay,

    I am glad your approach worked out and I am definitely going to try it. I have seen the same approach in other forums and it seems to resolve the issue for anyone willing to give it a go.

    Yes I did it and it worked. No refresh, no clean install. Upgrading Windows 10 within Windows 10 made the infamous error: 0x800f081f go away. One word of caution though is to use a brand new downloaded Media Creation tool from Microsoft's site in order to create the Windows.iso file and then burn it to a DVD. I also think it is a good idea to use Windows' own integrated burning tool and not a third party app. That can be done right after the creation of the Windows.iso file while one is still in the dialog box asking to burn the .iso image now.

    This is the result of sfc /scannow after the in place upgrade within Windows 10:
