    PC keeps saying there has been a problem and needs to restart

    Found this sequence on 8 forum

    Can this easily be made into a batch file, to run each line sequentially ?


    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    sfc /scannow
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    sfc /scannow

    SFC scannow reports errors that cant be fixed

    get 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 , when i run restore health option...

    cant upload the CBS file as its 10MB

    Hi Reddwarf4ever.

    Within this tutorial, Option 1, it explains using /Source in step 6 and 7. I assume you have a source to restore from, either ISO or USB key for your version.

    Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image

    thanks for the link to the tutorial, never thought to check for this....from my research it appeared that the option 5 using online in the command, did not require windows source files, but did an online it now appears I must provide my own own windows 10 reference files I will try this again.....
    thanks....maybe upgrading to creator version will resolve the problems.....

    Agree but to force the update you will need Windows.

    Windows 10 Creators Update and Creators Update SDK are Released

    Sorry about my language. When I said you need windows what I should have said was a working version of windows.

    Given your error message I wasn't sure Windows was actually functioning.

    If Windows is operational and you can navigate to the setup exe it should load and should be a fast way to get things resolved. I used the Media Creator tool. Plugged it in and ran setup.

    That's exactly what I have done , hopefulll the problem is fixed, if not I now have a ' creator' ISO to use the other method.

    Interesting that it does not happen if Safe mode. I would have said mouse driver but the standard driver is likely loaded in safe and normal boot.

    This procedure helps to isolate software issues and as it doesn't happen in Safe (where only the basics are loaded) i would give it a try.

    Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts

    The other major difference between safe and normal is the video driver and the video driver has to show you mouse. Have you updated video driver. I would try this and I would also try an older video driver.

    No. It will introduce a new problem. 15063.0 is OK, but as soon as a cumulative update is installed DISM RestoreHealth will fail, saying 'cannot find source files'. This is a error in DISM, there are no actual errors that need to be corrected. This has apparently already been reported on the Feedback Hub - we await a fix from Microsoft.

    Creators update component store shows corruption but unable to repair
