Windows 8.1 64 bit running Windows Update continuously.
Suddenly I had significant problem getting a two year old laptop started. Repair, recovery, reset, restore did not work. Recovery would not recognize the recovery disk! None of the reset points would work! After trying boot options 1, 4 and 5, then option 7 finally got it back alive.
Afterwards I have been trying to see if the OS is corrupted; and am hesitant to turn off the laptop to run chkdsk.
I tried to run dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth /source:wim:d:\sources\install.wim1 /limitaccess pointing to the windows iso DVD. There is an exe file with the name install at that location. It returns the message that "The source files could not be found". And sfc /scannow "found corrupt files". I tried to run this a couple of times.
Looked in the CBS file, which is what the DSIM error message suggested, but it's long. Skimming through it I do not find anything obvious. Should I search for something specifically?
