    Hi, I wonder how long this scan should run for, and when maybe I should notice it's not working right.

    Hello consultantbis,

    It can sometimes take a while (several hours) to finish. As long as you have hard drive activity, it would be best to let it sit until it's finished.

    The tutorial below can give you more details about a repair install, but the most important bit is that it can only be done from within your running Windows and not at boot.

    Hi, I did a refresh first and now have windows 8 and cannot find an 8 iso x64. MS appears to only show the 8.1.

    You could update to 8.1 if you like.

    Hi, I was looking at the instructions and I only have a install.esd not the install.wim for this command Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:D:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess

    You should be able to use the command below instead with .esd instead.

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

    Thank you, now is there a need to right click and mount to run
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:*C:\Users\Man\Desktop\Windows\sources\install.esd*:1 /limitaccess
    it then changes the drive to FVD.

    Yeah, you'll have to mount the ISO file to be able to access the .esd file. Be sure to change the drive letter in the command to whatever drive letter is assigned to the mounted ISO though.
