Thanks for your help! - for me the way was to mount the iso - e.g. F: drive then run this command
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:F:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
Then run sfc /scannow to fix stragglers.
Now it shows as clean. Hasn't fixed my slow printers and devices opening but at least I know my system is clean.

Interesting bit of Hack, had no idea about something like this. I might need to try something like this or one of the following solutions for my Win 8.1 whose SFC/ DISM will not work - "stuck at 23%"

Solution Set 1:

I also have dism set to get stuff from Windows Update---

The master speaks. I sure feel stupid sometimes, was not aware of that setting. Thank you once again.

Well, your first suggestion worked. Dang you deserve a rep! :thumb:

Brink should add this one to his DISM tutorial: Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

I performed the two recommended operations above. The first competed successfully, but the second did not. The message, " The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the component store cannot be repaired" Error: 0x800f081f, DISM failed. No operation was performed." Any suggestions?

Solutions Set 2:

This program will run System File Checker ( SFC ) and DISM to repair an online Windows image
and will look for the setup media to use as a repair source

Step 1: Download and Extract > RESTOREHEALTH v2.ZIP
Step 2: Insert your Windows Setup Media ( Mounted ISO or DVD or USB )
Step 3: Right Click on RESTOREHEALTH v2.CMD and Run as Administrator

You can download Windows 8.1 Setup Media > Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help
This program was tested using the created Setup Media as the source for the repair files.

Solution Set 3:


boe - strongly suggest you go carefully through the entire Ten Forum thread at Solved Unable to repair Windows10 using SFC/DISM or in-place upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
because I made mistakes with it until I finally got it right.

Solution Set 4:

Thanks for your help! - for me the way was to mount the iso - e.g. F: drive then run this command
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:F:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess
Then run sfc /scannow to fix stragglers.
Now it shows as clean. Hasn't fixed my slow printers and devices opening but at least I know my system is clean.
