    1. Your command line consists of this....................Source:WIM:T:
    Is T the drive letter of the dvd player ? If it isn't, you'll need to change that.

    2. If you don't mind try it this way......................
    Instead of using the DVD, go to the folder where your ISO file is saved at > right click at the file > click Mount > leave it there.
    Then open your elevated command prompt, and enter the command line.
    Make sure the T is the drive letter where your iso is mount. If not, change it.
    To be honest, I am not sure the versions match. I know how to check the version of Windows on my machine, but how do I find out the version of the ISO file?

    To answer your other points, the drive letter is indeed my DVD letter. I am just in the process of making a new ISO and will try mounting it as you suggest.

    Mount the iso and execute from an elevated (admin) command prompt, the command
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:H:\sources\install.esd /index:1
    where H is the drive letter that your iso is mounted as.

    If you have the file install.wim, then type the following:
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:F:\sources\install.wim /index:1

    Where F is the drive letter the iso is mounted on.

    Ah, the version of my machine is 10586. The DVD I was using as drive letter T: is 10240.

    I don't know what the version of the installable USB I made today is because it does not have a WIM file; it just has an ESD file.

    At least that explains why my DVD is not working. That now leaves me wondering how to (a) find the version of an ESD file, and (b) use an ESD file to repair my corrupted files.

    Go to Tech Bench and download the iso file > save it to a folder and name it with version # for future reference.
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench

    That's your 10586 version.

    After downloading, Right click at the iso > click Mount > leave it there.
    Then open your elevated command prompt and enter your dism command line.
    You know the drill from here on.

    I made a new ISO, mounted it as H and tried DISM again. The version of the image is now reported correctly as 10586, which matches my machine, but I still get the file-not-found error. Note that the ISO contains only an ESD file, not a WIM file.

    Oh, dear! Where do I go from here?

    I asked you to download the iso file from Tech Bench which will provide the Install.wim instead of install.esd.

    Did you do it ?

    Nothing wrong with using install.esd

    @EasyGoingPat
    FYI, install.esd or install.wim both result the extraction of the component store files to temp folder (%USERPROFILE%\Appdata\local\temp) then use them to repair.

    1. Copy install.esd to your Desktop
    2. From Admin command, run: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    3. then run: DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:ESD:%USERPROFILE%\install.esd:1 /LimitAccess

    For Step 2 & 3. Just copy and paste the command to make sure the syntax is correct. See screen shot:
    NOTE: Step 2 in the screen shot will be different from yours since I have no corruption.

    I am sorry to disagree.
    Each time someone got the " sources file not found " message was because the user was using an iso which contained Install.esd.
    Each time I told the user to download from Tech Bench and use the iso containing the install.wim , it always turned out successful.
    This method never fails.

    What can I tell you ? I posted the result above using install.esd.
    The problem is if you don't use the correct syntax on the DISM command then of course it will not be found.

    Using 7-zip to see the contents of both install.wim and install.esd. They are both exactly the same, the only difference is the compression method for INSTALL.ESD is smaller than INSTALL.WIM
