  1. Got WIM file trying to fix DISM-am I using wrong path? Won't work


    I made a WIM for 14257 using the ESD to ISO tool trying to fix the DISM/Restorehealth issue.
    I cannot get it to work. First time ever I am running into a roadblock.

    Am I using the wrong path?

    I have the WIM file in a folder in Native C drive...so when I open up C drive with all of the folders. I have a subfolder in the main C directory called sources. I have the install.wim file in that folder. But I am still getting error issues with file not found.

    Here is what I am using

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /source:wim:C:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    Is that the right path for me or am I just dense?





    :)

  2. Cannot Boot to Windows 10 After an Update From Microsoft

    Reset will require a reinstall of Apps, but can preserve your user data. Going back to previous build should preserve everything.

    If neither works, or you want to try another approach, you can export a new WIM file from your Windows 10 install USB, which DISM can use to repair Windows. Then sfc /scannow may work to fix things. We could try DISM with the WIM file that is already on
    the install USB, but it usually will complain that it cannot find the source needed (due to the extra compression used on the WIM file on install media).

  3. CSI Payload Corrupt

    Ran dism using another windows system as the source:

    C:\Windows\system32>Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:z:\Windows /LimitAccess

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool

    Version: 10.0.10240.16384

    Image Version: 10.0.10240.16384

    [==========================100.0%==========================]

    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.

    The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

    I tried with the media creation to MP3 and there was no wim file - esd file instead. I converted that to a wim and got same issue - both with esd:1 and wim:1. Trying now with ISO instead of USB but expect same results.

    Got WIM file trying to fix DISM-am I using wrong path? Won't work

    Are you trying do a DISM repair on a build 14257 Windows installation? If not, you're barking up the wrong tree.

    Please describe the roadblock.

    BTW, you might get a little more consistent and cohesive help if you stick in a thread you've started until it's solved rather than abandoning them and starting new threads regarding the next step.

  5. It is a 14257 Installation. I got the ESD file from my laptop and used the ESD to ISO tool to make the WIM.

    OK, so 1) What exact edition of WIndows 10 are you running (Home/Pro, 32/64bit, Language - English right)? and 2) what error message are you seeing?

  7. I am using 14257 64 Bit I believe Personal/Professional.

    I am getting the "Source Files Not Found" error message when I run DISM/ Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth

    Another post on here said run dism/startcomponnet cleanup then try to do it but I still get same error message.

    So I heard another option was using a WIM file so I used the ESD from 14257 and converted it to WIM and am trying to use the direct WIM method instead of Online but still not working. No idea what I am doing wrong. Is my path wrong?

    I was able to to Fix the DISM issue on a prior build because I was able to download an ISO directly that had an install feature and essentially I upgraded to the same build I already had (essentially a reinstall) and that worked.

    Got WIM file trying to fix DISM-am I using wrong path? Won't work

    OK, so let's confirm some things:

    1) Please open an elevated (admin) command prompt and issue the command "dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:C:\sources\install.wim /index:1" then post a screenshot of the output.

    and

    2) While the command prompt is still open issue the command "winver" and post a screenshot of that.

    If you need help posting a screenshot, let us know.
