    Oh, sorry, I did not see the last post by Bree. I will try that, but right now my Windows 7 machine is down with a bad fan. I'll try it when I get that back in case something goes wrong with this one.

    I also just found that there is a Recovery Manager to create recovery disks to reinstall Windows. I was going to also try the sources folder provided in such disk, but when I tried to create the disks, it says, "We can't create the recovery drive. A problem occurred while creating the recovery drive." I looked up several solutions to this, but none worked. I will still try the the other iso's I have externally.

    Windows 10 allowed me to make a boot disk on a flash drive. I plan to use it in order to run DISM externally. I checked BIOS to make sure USB is first in the boot order, but it still just ignores the flash boot disk and boots from internal drive. Is there something I don't know?

    Should I start a new thread about the startup disk created by Windows 10 not booting, ...or is it okay to keep it here? Thanks.

    Usb drive will not boot if your usb install is not setup correctly. Best way is to use the media creation tool to create it. Also usb3 ports can be a bit temperamental - try other usb ports.

    Another reason you may be unable to boot from the USB is if you have not disabled secure boot in the BIOS. Refer to your manual or online HP support to see how to do this.

    Thank-you, for the information. Here is what happened:

    When I went to look for "secure boot" settings, I noticed that the boot order got changed back from the way I saved it (?). I changed it back again and tried. Upon boot, first I had to choose a keyboard layout, 2nd I chose ""Use USB device", 3rd, there was only a choice of "EFI USB" or Internal drive. I'm not sure what EFI is, but if I choose internal, of course, it will do a normal boot. If I choose EFI USB, it starts all over at keyboard layout and just keeps repeating. Disable "secure boot" had no effect.

    Since this is different behavior than before, I did not try a different port yet, until I check with you all first.

    Thanks.

    The EFI USB choice suggests that you may not have formatted the USB device correctly in order to use it as a boot device. Make sure it is formatted with fat32.

    Yes, I formatted with Fat32. Since I hadn't tried the other port as suggested above, I wiped the flash drive and started over with the other port, but no change.

    In Control Panel, Windows 10 can create a Windows 7 boot disk. Would DISM work from a Windows 7 boot disk?

    Although the option to 'create a system repair disk' is found in 'Back up and Restore (Windows 7)' it is NOT a Windows 7 boot disk. It's the same Windows 10 recovery tools as the USB recovery drive - just without the option to 'include system files'. Yes, it will work just the same as booting from USB.

    windows 10 professional version 1607 build 14393.969 64 bit

    Yesterday when I ran dism restorehealth it worked for Windows 10 version 1703 build 15063.296.
    See if the sfc /scannow and/or dism /online-cleanup-image /restorehealth commands can fix your operating system.

    dism restorehealth now working for windows version 1703 - Windows 10 Forums
