Windows 10: Use DISM to Repair Windows 10 Image
Try the tech bench iso. it has the install.wim files for dism runs when source files are needed for the correction of non repairable files.
Can you guide me through please!
You could use step 6 in OPTION ONE for this. The note box under that step includes a link for the Tech Bench ISO file.
Ok, I realized it now, I did it then I did the command
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
where I changed the letter D to my drivers letter. Th process was successful, it said (the restore operation completed successfully.The operation Completed successfully) then I restarted my computer and then did the command
but it said it found corrupted files but can't fix some of them.
My major problem and what brought me here is that my language input indicator is blank, and on microsoft website they said to go through this process to fix this problem.
Don't know what to do next exactly!
the full path to the install.wim files looks like this D:\sources\install.wim where D: could just as well be E,F,G ... the letter designating the location of your source file will only be available after you mount the iso to your pc. you do that by simply right clicking on the iso and click mount, then look in your "This PC" in windows explorer to view that iso mount drive letter. Whatever that is use it for your path to the install.wim file. you can also run the dism repair command with out the "/limit access" in the dism repair command line. hope this helps.
Firstly thank you.
I did that, I know i have to change the letter to the exact source in my computer, I did that. But my problem is not with this step, it has been done successfully, my problem is with the next step where after restart I need to do the command sfc /scannow again, where it always says it can't fix the corrupted files no matter I did, and as I said in the previous post, I want to fix the blank language input indicator,
Thank you again
Since SFC can't repair the files even after running the DISM command, you could do a repair install to fix it without losing anything.
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
i had this same problem several times where dism fixed it but sfc /scannow could not. i waited until the next cumulative update and ran the dism iso install.wim again and then sfc /scannow and all is fine this time around. I have no idea why the integrity issue sometimes works in resolving the problem or dism corrects the corrupt files and sfc ... will not but, i do know in my own experience the problem resolves itself with a cumulative update of win 10. exactly which one is anyone's guess imo. i don't get to worried about this if the dism action show repairs made and everything is okay regardless of the sfc ... results. I do not do re installs to correct this or restores. just sayin.
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:Z:\sources\install.esd:1 /limitaccess
I just ran the above command but got this error: 0x800F081F The source files could not be found.
Z is my DVD drive and Z:\sources\install.esd really exists.
Why could the file not be found?
