    DISM /restoreHealth failes with error: 0x800f081f


    after updating to 8.1u1, i'm running "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" and I get the following:

    is this something I can repair from my original 8.1 Pro ISO, either as ISO or extracted? The setup event logs mentions 3 errors, so presumably this is the issue.

    Thanks

    I'm having the same error on my 32-bit system that I just updated last night.
    I don't understand most of the text in my DISM log, but after the text, the remaining 90% of the log is filled with what appears to be Chinese characters, with some binary characters interspersed. The log is over 1.2mb in size.
    However, what's interesting is that the SFC /SCANNOW command shows no corrupted files.
    I've seen a few posts on various forums about this, with no definitive resolutions.

    Same error here - after updating Windows 8.1 Update 1. At least I got it installed - more than I can say about my other pc which goes into loop of installing to 99% then undoes the whole thing. What a piece of crap!

    some of the things i've tried:
    1) changed ownership of those 3 directories & perms so i could copy the missing DLL from another 8.1u1 installation, no dice
    2) did a /resetbase, which removes them entirely (i'm not uninstalling any updates)
    3) shared out the \windows\WinSxS directory on a good installation & tried /restorehealth specifying that as the source
    4) same thing after extracting 8.1u1 ISO & specifying it as source
    5) some deal I found on MS forums where you rename ..\system32\catroot2 & ..\softwareDistribution downloads

    nothing works. I just find others with same issue. I spent hours on this last night.

    It's probably no consolation to you but it works for me:

    The files mentioned on my system show as being modified on 4/5 or 4/5, so unless you have the 8.1.1 .iso or another system with those files, you may have to depend on the Windows Update.

    I was wondering if the Update server is being restricted right now by either traffic or intentionally, to allow for distribution of Update 1.

    Just for the heck of it, you might run the command below to see what it might show. On my system it gives some numbers and says a Store Cleanup is Recommended. I would ignore that since my last cleanup happened with the Update 1 install.

    dism /online /Cleanup-image /AnalyzeComponentStore

    C:\Windows\system32>dism /online /Cleanup-image /AnalyzeComponentStore

    weird thing is that sfc /scannow works & comes back as 100% successful. It's only the DISM stuff that fails. I worry about getting updates going forward. I'd hate to rebuild, I built this machine only in late December, & I don't install a bunch of crap on it. So I have 8.1.1, but I want everything in a healthy state.

    I did run the /AnalyzeComponentStore & it comes back OK. It's only the /restoreHealth where I have issues.

    You could try this.
    Restart computer while holding down Shift Key...this brings up "Option Menu".
    Click on "Troubleshoot" then "Advanced Options" then "System Image Recovery".
    This solves a multitude of problems without affecting files etc.
