    Dism source files not found


    I have several problems on my pc and want fix win10 without reinstalling all apps. When I run:
    Code:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
    I get Error 87. With:
    Code:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /CheckHealth
    I get a message, that it can be repaired. So, I ran:
    Code:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    And get this error: 0x800f0906. Source files not found. (The PC is connected to the internet and online). I tested it with a local image:
    Code:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /source:C:\Users\Lars\Desktop\wrc\install.wim:1 /LimitAccess
    And get the same error (0x800f0906). The file exists on my harddrive with that name. The same happens with a mountained Image or an install.esd file.
    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    Says, that all is fine. In windows update, I get this error: 0x80070002.In chkdsk, all is fine, too.I have read a lot about that topics. The program folder location was not changed. I get the same errors, when I run these commands and safe mode, or after a clean boot.

    That also happens, when I'm not connected to the internet.

    Try this syntax instead

    /Source:WIM:C:\Users\Lars\Desktop\wrc\install.wim:1

    That's what I learned is necessary to get the DISM command to properly scan and use an install image, as documented in this Oct 19, 2015 blog post: Simple Trick Fixes DISM /source syntax issues. Hope this works for you, too!

    Hi. I did that and got the same error again. Checking with
    Code:
    get-wiminfo
    works, so the location should be okay?

    Weird. The only other thing it could be is if the version of the build for the WIM file you're pointing at with /Source is different from the /online image. I've had that cause problems in the past. Also, they must be the same base language. I drove myself crazy trying to fix one machine until I figured out it was an en-UK version when I thought it was an en-US version. Lots of little, subtle and interesting gotchas are possible with DISM.

    I have already checked that. I have used the original DVD. The setup was in en-gb. Now, it runs in german. The DVD Contains multiple languages, so it should work?

    If not, shall i download an en-gb Image? Are there any direct Downloads?

    No just a thought. It's the base language that counts: if you installed en-GB to begin with, that's what you need to use for your source. However, what is the major version for what you have installed right now? If it's 1607 (as Winver will tell you) and you originally installed 1507 or 1511, then you will need to visit the MS ISO downloads page and use a 1607 ISO for your /Source instead. If you've updated to get to 1607, you need to use a matching 1607 source. That's the only additional possible discrepancy I can think of...

    Hi,

    Exactly. As Ed says, source version and destination version must match. If not, no cigar.

    To check the version of the destination, run : Winver.

    To check the version of the source use the following code from a command prompt (Admin) :

    Code:
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:X:\sources\install.wim /index:1
    Replace X with the matching drive letter.

    Personally I tend to use Image Health, a package written by forum member KYHI.

    I have it on D:\ and I mount the ISO file of the same version of my current Windows install. It finds the source WIM all by itself.
    Works absolutely fine for me.

    Winver says, I have Version 1607 Build 14393.447. I have downloaded the iso files from here Windows 10 ISO with my VM Linux. Both german and en-gb with both ones, I still get the error. The downloaded ones are V1607, like the installed one.
