    How to repair your system files using Dism and Sfc in build 10041


    Hello, everyone,

    I've managed to resolve most of my problems with build 10041 by making SFC work. I've opened a thread on Windows Insider's forums explaining how to do it. Check it out:

    OK, then let me paste the instructions here. Hopefully you'll be able to sign in later and check the thread.

    How to repair your system files using DISM and SFC /Scannow (Build: 10041)

    I've managed to repair my system files on Windows 10 TP build 10041. This is how to do it for those interested in it. Note: you will need the ISO for build 10041. If you don't know how to get it, see Andre's thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/i...e-d3b9118a8864

    Now follow the next steps:

    1. Mount the .ISO file by double clicking on it.

    2. Open 'Windows Powershell' or 'Command Prompt' with Admin privileges (right click -> Run as Administrator)

    3. Let's check the System Health first, by running these commands:
    3.1 dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    3.2 dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
    3.3 dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    4. I'm sure that 3.3 will give you an error stating that it could not perform the task. And now it's when the mounted ISO comes into play. Let's specify the file from the ISO so that we can fix it. Run the following command: (Notice that X must be the drive letter on which your system has mounted the ISO)
    4.1 DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

    5. Now let's repair any damage in the system files, shall we?
    5.1 sfc /scannow

    Now it should work for you, guys! I hope this will help. My system seems more responsive since then. Please report if you encounter any problems following these instructions.

    Edit: this screenshot shows the result after having repaired the system files. Once I ran it for the second time to check everything was in order, it showed the following

    Thanks for the instructions. Since nothing appears to be wrong currently, I won't actually follow those instructions now since they are fairly in depth.

    Interesting. But why would system files need repairing on a brand new install. Add. I used an ISO for a brand new install.

    That's what intrigues me most. I mean, I did make a fresh new install using the ISO and, yet, it was plagued with system files corruption. My assumption right now is that we are facing side effects from a still work in progress OS.

    Hi,
    So far for me, the only real issue I had with this build was after it installed I didn't have any sound..my Realtek sound card somehow wasn't recognized & installed correctly. Thank goodness someone posted a 'fix' to get my sound back.

    Guys, I've just learned something else. After a fresh reboot of Windows 10, I decided to give 'sfc /scannow' another go, just for the sake of it and guess what? The process got interrupted multiple times after roughly 5%. I managed to make it work again by running:

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    or

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

    again. Then 'sfc /scannow' worked again flawlessly.

    I don't understand what's wrong with these builds. Are Microsoft guys changing something really elementary? Will this have anything to do with those changes I read about system compression?

    What do you guys think?

    When I use this command:DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth /source:WIM:E:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess I get an error 0x800f081f saying source files couldn't be found. I have the iso in my E drive and I can boot from it so I assume that it's good. When I run the sfc /scannow it finds corrupt files but cannot correct them. Am I doing something wrong?

    Check your file E:\Sources\install.wim exists. You could have an ISO that contains an esd not a wim.

    You need a space and between /Cleanup-Image and /RestoreHealth also.
