Having problems installing RSAT, which led me to running
scf /scannow, and it reporting
found corrupt files. So I'm runnning
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth which complained
...source files could not be found ... Use the "Source" option to specify the location....
Other posts cite this command to repair after you have downloaded source:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:wim:E:\sources\install.wim:1 /limitaccess I used the media creation tool to download the Win10 ISO. However, after I mount the ISO and take a look at the sources directory, there is NOT any "install.wim" file, nor any other path on the ISO. There is only a 302MB "boot.wim" and a 3GB "install.esd". Ran the command anyway, but it failed with same
source files could not be found message. What kind of download do I need to make with MCT that has this "install.wim" file, or is there some other way to invoke
I later read the ESD is a compressed & encrypted successor to WIM. Other post had a slightly different usage. I tried
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:E:\sources\install.esd:1 /limitaccess but still received
Error: 0x800f081f source files could not be found
Wondering... Does repair require the ISO/WIM/ESD to be the same version as my install? Is it giving this error because it is different? MCT has no prompts for which version ISO to download. How do I download an older release if that's what I need?
