    Unable to repair Windows10 using SFC/DISM or in-place upgrade


    Hello,

    Once in awhile I check my system files using SFC,
    I just checked it but found problems and wasn't able to fix them.
    So I ran the DISM command but then again couldn't fix it.
    Code:
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /restorehealth
    The DISM command gave me this message:
    "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.
    So I downloaded an ISO with the same version and build as my current OS (windows 10 pro x64 - build 10586) to use the option "Source" by mounting the ISO.
    But same error as mentioned above showed up.

    So my last idea was to do a in-place upgrade , and I did by following this tutorial of yours, it all went smoothly but after the in-place upgrade finished it seems nothing had change since the SFC found problems.

    Im out of ideas here.

    Attached, CBS and DISM logs.

    Downloaded Iso from where? Downloaded from Tech Bench will result in an install.wim file in the sources folder to use as source. If you used Media Creation Tool to download the iso, it will have an install.esd in the sources folders instead and THAT doesn't work well as /source for DISM restore health.

    Then like Post #6 here from Topgundcp SFC some corrupt files can not be fixed

    Maybe related to NVIDIA Driver.

    Looking at his CBS log, one of his errors IS Opencl.dll which SFC could not repair. But, that does seem strange because after running SFC /Scannow, most of the time it DOES repair that file, with the older one from MS.

    I did have a similar issue myself at first as thread starter with this as from my last link, worth try along with downloading the correct ISO from techbench and try.

    Yup, your right, as Topgun's way does work, just have to follow it correctly.

    So my only issue allegedly was not downloading the ISO from Tech Bench ?

    dippas,

    My reply is just to elaborate what Word Man has already told you in Post #3.
    Your dism .......> restorehealth said " source files could not be found" because your ISO was downloaded from Media Creation Tool which gave you the Install.esd.
    You need the Install.wim which can be obtained by downloading the ISO from Tech Bench.
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench

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