Has anyone ever come up with, or know of a way to mimic the /Resetbase option in the following DISM command, but on Windows 8?

Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
Windows 8.1 has the command option, but not Windows 8. I wonder if anyone knew of a workaround.

Use the DISM folder from the Windows 8.1 ADK
and instead of running > Dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
which uses the system (windows 8.0) dism.exe

you will run the Dism command from that folder

X:\8.1_ADK_DISM_Folder\Dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

or better yet you can update the windows 8.0 DISM files to Windows 8.1 DISM files
by running wimmountadksetup**.exe from the ADK_DISM Folder
