    Nar, it has to be a .wim or .esd file specified. If the USB doesn't have it, then you'll need to download an ISO file to use.

    OK, The ISO download is in progress.

    I may also draw your attention to this TechNet article based on which I wanted to try Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth /Source:I:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../hh825020.aspx Configure a Windows Repair Source

    Extract from that article for your ready perusal:

    "You can use a mounted Windows image from a WIM file as a source to restore optional features and repair a corrupted operating system. For example, c:\test\mount\Windows. For more information about capturing a Windows image as a WIM file, see Capture Images of Hard Disk Partitions Using DISM.
    You can use a running Windows installation as a source to restore optional features by sharing the c:\Windows folder on your network.

    You can use a Windows side-by-side folder from a network share or from a removable media, such as the Windows DVD, as the source of the files. For example, z:\sources\SxS.

    You can use a Windows image (.wim) file on a network share as a source to restore optional features. You must specify the index of the Windows image in the .wim file that you want to use and you must use a Wim: prefix in the path to identify this file format. For example, to specify index 3 in a file named contoso.wim, type: Wim:\\network\images\contoso.wim:3."

    Not sure whether I have misunderstood the context in which the above is made.

    Anyway, once the ISO is downloaded successfully, I shall keep it in reserve and try Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth /Source:I:\sources\sxs /LimitAccess first. If it is not successful,I will then try the ISO.

    Thanks for your time.

    I've never tried the "I:\sources\sxs" method, but found the .wim or .esd to work well.

    Please let us know how it went.

    I found that option #3 in the offered program worked well using an install.esd instead of an install.wim.
    Check it out.
    Read the entire thread please.

    Posted wrong thing.

    This is the correct thread-

    Thanks, David Bailey, I had seen that thread even three days back and what caught my attention was your post
    SFC SCANNOW and DISM RESTOREHEALTH - Repair Corrupt Files which in effect said that install.wim is no longer supplied and it is only install.esd now.

    I thought I should first try to use the available tool DISM , rather than downloading another software to run it. I shall revert back after my experiment with DISM.

    The downloaded ISO file when mounted has the same set of files as written on the USB drive and still install.esd only and no install .wim. Expected.

    I then used this command Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth/Source:I:\sources\sxs /limitaccess. No luck.

    Then tried the following commands.
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth/Source:wim:I:\sources\install.esd:1 /limitaccess
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:I:\sources\install.esd:1 /limitaccess

    Still the same error.

    So then I have to find a way out to restore health.

    The DISM log:

    Click image for larger version

    sfc /scannow however gives a clean chit. No integrity violations. All OK.

    @David Bailey, I tried Image Health by KHIY. It worked taking in the install.esd but finally cannot repair. I shall post it under the thread SFC SCANNOW and DISM RESTOREHEALTH - Repair Corrupt Files perhaps tomorrow.

    You could try:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:I:\sources\install.esd

    I just posted it because it worked for me.

    Glad you tried it.

    Maybe you needed to add the "limit access" part ?
