    If you don't have the correct one from media tool. I think down loading the correct ISO from Tech bench works better in some cases. Your Choice of course.

    Ok.. index:2 is Win10 Home x64. MCT seems to have an issue ... if you in fact selected Home when you built the install media, MCT should have only put Home on the USB drive. There have been a few changes, so I'll simply ask if you downloaded MCT anew or used one you already had. You shouldn't have to go through the download/create process again, unless the process below doesn't work.

    Redstone 1 is coming up, so I would wait for that to create a new Thumbdrive using a current MCT
    Until then, you'll just have to remember to access index:2 if you run Dism RestoreHealth

    Or... you could see if the current MCT correctly builds Home install media - but wait on that ... see if you can't get the Repair install to work as simrick already suggested. If that fails again (let's hope not) you could try Dism with index:2 - essentially a Repair install without any changes that might affect the boot.


    On the Thumbdrive
    Navigate to sources
    Open install.esd with 7-zip

    Inside 7-zip file manger you should see 2 folders (named 1 & 2)
    Double click folder 2 to expand it in 7-zip
    Ctrl+A to select all
    Ctrl+C to copy the selected files/folders

    In File Explorer
    Create a new folder (Win10x64Home) on your machine
    Open the Win10x64Home in File Explorer
    Ctrl+V to paste the copied files/folders into Win10x64Home

    Try running setup from the Win10x64Home folder (containing the extracted Home install media)

    My noob is showing again. I opened the install.esd file with 7-zip, selected and copied the files and folders from folder 2, created the new Win10 folder, and opened it. However when I tried to paste the contents of the clipboard into new folder I could not ... like the clipboard was empty; no paste function. Tried several times but no success. I'm doing something wrong or forgetting something???

    I tried again doing it one file at a time with interesting results. All folders except Users appeared to copy ok. Users gave the message "cannot create symbolic link: access denied??" and the two files (no folder) seemed to copy but the destination folder does not show them.

    Sounds as though correctly you did the copy/paste.

    After thinking about it though, I don't think my method would work with setup without additional changes.

    Just read your 2nd post about this. You can delete the Win10x64Home test/temp folder

    Let's try a different tact:

    Double click the Win10 ISO to mount it - make note of the drive letter

    Right click the Windows icon (aka Start button) on the Taskbar
    Select Command Prompt (Admin)

    Enter the following lines in the Command Prompt window:
    Note: Replace E with the drive letter of your mounted ISO

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:E:\sources\install.esd:2 /limitaccess

    SFC /ScanNow

    If there are any errors on the screen after the commands run,
    Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs
    Right click the CBS folder
    Select Send to > Compressed (zip) folder
    answer yes to place on Desktop
    Attach the zip folder to your next post

    Full tutorials:
    Run DISM in Command Prompt
    Run SFC /ScanNOW in Command Prompt

    Looking at it, seems to have found lots of problems, but I am not good at reading the CBS logs. But @axe0 is VERY good at reading these logs. Maybe if he gets time he can take a look for you.

    Hi tybee,

    It looks like your OS is heavily corrupted, IF SFC & DISM can fix it then it will be very difficult.
    The corruption includes features as Cortana, preinstalled apps, drivers and many other things.

    I would advice a clean reinstallation of your OS, meaning that you need to backup your important data so all current partitions can be deleted. After the reinstallation is done you'll need to run Windows Update again, I would ask that you also perform a few tests to see if the memory and/or hard drive may be causing problems that may cause this size of corruption.
