    That includes changing the drive letter H to the actual drive letter your iso is mounted on ?

    My last suggestion may not be to your liking......................
    Do a Repair Install.

    Hi David

    Sorry for the late reply. Theres good news and bad news...

    Firstly - I've fixed the issue with source files not being found. From another thread I found the following advice:

    1- Create a folder on desktop: mount
    2- Copy install.wim to desktop. (used the ISO downloaded from techbench)

    Open Admin Command prompt, copy/paste each line and run:

    1. Dism /mount-wim /wimFile:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\install.wim /index:1 /MountDir:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\mount
    2. Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    3. Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\mount\windows /LimitAccess
    4. Dism /unmount-wim /Mountdir:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\mount /discard
    5. re-run: sfc /scannow


    I'm pleased to say my sfc /scannow reports back clean with no corruption.

    However....I still have the same issue - I can open Settings, but when I click on Accounts, it doesn't open.
