    mklassy,

    See if going through the listed items in the blue note box at the bottom of OPTION TWO below may allow SFC to successfully repair the files afterwards.

    I have access to downloading Windows 7, can I download that and run it instead of Windows 8 if the reinstall of Windows 8 does not fix my problem?

    Can you direct to where I can find how to do that?

    Sure, you could install Windows 7 instead of Windows 8 if you like and if have a Windows 7 product key to activate it with.

    Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7

    Apologies for not reading all 13 pages, so this may have been asked before. Is it possible to run Dism to fix possible component store issues offline?

    I have a non-working Windows 8.1 MCE (update 1) which was fine until I accidentally destroyed the partitions while investigating some old Acer system restore disks.

    Fortunately I restored the Partitions, but the Windows 8.1 boot stops at the login screen "Preparing Windows" (no keyboard or mouse activity possible) then dies after the system goes to sleep. see: /rant/ I lose faith in Windows on occasions....

    Having used imagex to image the volume, is it possible to mount the .wim and use dism (say from WinPE on an install Windows 8.1 disk) to fix any component store issues offline?

    Hello fafhrd,

    The links below from Microsoft has more info on how to use DISM offline with a mounted WIM file. I haven't tried it, but I'm not sure it'll help in your situation or not.

    Repair a Windows Image

    Mount and Modify a Windows Image Using DISM

    Hope this helps some,
    Shawn
