    DISM unable to locate Install.wim file


    Hi,

    Today, running sfc /scannow reported corrupted files it could not repair. I followed instructions here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/7...-10-image.html but I am unable to get DISM to find the Install.wim file even though I can see it quite clearly in Explorer.

    I used the following command: DSIM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:WIM:T:\sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

    The path to the ISO on the DVD drive is definitely correct, but I keep getting an 'Error 0x800f081f The source files could not be found'.

    Has anyone got any suggestions how I can fix this?

    Kind wishes ~ Patrick

    You probably need the .esd

    The ISO file does not belong on the DVD - the CONTENTS of the ISO are what should be on the DVD...

    If you have the ISO file on your HDD - double-click the ISO to Mount it as a DVD..

    The point to the install.wim within the mounted ISO

    Sorry - that was just bad use of English on my part. The DVD is inserted in the player and I am pointing to the contents of it, not the ISO image. Still doesn't work.

    Thank you for the reply. I tried this using all four of the commands below. They all gave the same file-not-found error.

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:ESD:G:\sources\install.esd /LimitAccess
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:ESD:G:\sources\install.esd:1 /LimitAccess
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:G:\sources\install.esd:1 /LimitAccess
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:G:\sources\install.esd /LimitAccess

    So far I can tell, only 1 of the 4 commands is correct (2nd command)

    Is there any difference when you leave /LimitAccess away?

    It still fails with exactly the same error. Do you think there is any point in copying the ESD file to C:\Temp and trying to access it from there, or does it need other files in the same location?

    I don't think there is any point in doing so.

    Something I'm wondering, I assume you already have done so but I'd like confirmation.
    Have you tried restorehealth without specifying a source?

    *** Does the DVD have the same Win 10 version as the computer is now running ? ***
    Someone in another thread used a 10586 iso version on a 10240 computer and asked why dism did not work.

    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.

    Yes, I have. Exactly the same error. I even tried disabling the firewall, because I read somewhere else that someone had a problem with that.
