    Hello Ray,

    You should be able to use OPTION SIX in the tutorial below with the free ShowKeyPlus program to see your full key.

    Thanks to your wisdom and generosity, I don't think that the users will from now on ever have to suffer a corrupted windows for long. But I wonder if the Image-Health can further be improved to run as a bootable program and be used even to rectify a windows that refuses to start at all?

    that would require me to change all the commands in Image Health to work with an off-line windows image...

    But I already have a Bootable Recovery Tools and Rescue Disk (ISO) - that will
    run as a bootable program and be used even to rectify a windows that refuses to start at all

    past SFC + DISM

    DISM really only needs to be ran if SFC is unable to repair corrupted or modified system files.

    SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8

    (step 6 in OPTION TWO if regular /restorehealth is not able to fix)
    DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8
    >>I agree with Rich and am one of those no too techy users who need simplification. I get corrupted files often and usually fix them either with SFC or DISM Health. However, I ran into an instance where neither worked and said the source was the issue.
    I am confused whether .wim and .erd are important with these new ways to fix corrupted files. I have images and all my work is based around my Windows 10 x 64 ISO downloads so I hope not a distinction is not relevant or I have the right extension. I cannot where I downloaded the original Win 10 ISO all my images are based upon. I did download the .wim extension just in case. I have bookmarked this page and will refer to it if + when I have an issue neither SFC nor DISM can repair. Last time i tried it failed - it said repairable but I may have made an error b/c it said it failed. I hope it was not my media which had the wrong extension as the source.
    Anyway thank you all for displaying this tutorial and I will let you know if I get another corruption issue, with results.
    TQ

    disc confusion


    Hello
    I have discs to make a clean install of Win 10. x 64
    They vary as iIcannot remember where I got them.
    I can upload 3 to this post but will upload the last to the next post as 4 will not fit apparently.
    I think these are .ESD while the the Tech Bench is .WIM - I do not have that one uploaded.

    Should I use Tech Bench .WIM which has both 64 and 32 bit?

    Please tell me which discs I should not use to either do a clean install of Win 10 x 64 and use the new process to fix corrupted files? TQ
