    Thank you very much, Brink (Are you Dutch?),
    I am now downloading the ISO and I will try a refresh.

    Thank you ever so much for your help, as I really did not know what to do anymore.
    I'll keep you posted.

    Reinstall if you wish to.
    You could have avoided it.

    Hmmm, spoke too soon.Have been trying since yesterday to get hold of this ISO.It either stops responding continuously, or makes a tiny bit of progress and then goes on hanging.

    Nope not Dutch. Texan.

    Keep trying to download the ISO when able. The servers are a bit overloaded right now with the free Windows 10 upgrade being pre-loaded.

    Microsoft has begun pre-loading Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Did you have any luck with what David posted above?

    Afraid not, Brink.
    It ran through the repairs and fixes in about half an hour, but the same faults were still there.

    And the other thing is: I want to upgrade to Windows 10 tomorrow, but my concern is it might not work due to Windows Update not working.
    EDITED: Windows UpDATE, not UpGRADE.

    Hi Brink,

    Thank you for the excellent tutorial.

    I am trying to use DISM to repair Component Store Corruption.

    The command after mounting the ISO: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    I wrote Windows 8.1 into a USB pendrive using the Windows Installation Media creator. So it is not an ISO.What command should I use in DISM to point it to the source?

    EDIT: OK, after reading up on the subject I think the command

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth /Source:I:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    should work. (Replace drive letter I: with the actual drive letter of the USB pen drive/ optical drive holding the Windows 8.1 installation files.)

    Need confirmation before I try it..

    Hello Jumanji,

    If "I" is the drive letter, then you would need to use the command below.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:I:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    Thanks, Brink, for the response.

    In option 6 of your Tutorial under the Notes Section you have said "The install.wim file will be in the Sources folder of a mounted Windows 8.1 ISO file"

    When downloading 8.1 using the Create Media Tool I chose the first option to write it directly onto a pen drive and not the option to create an ISO.

    When I look into the downloaded set up files on the pen drive, I don't see any install.wim file under sources.

    Should I still point the source to a non-existent install.wim file or the existing sxs folder which is supposed to hold the Component Store?
