I'm executing the command

DISM /Image:E:\WIM\Mount /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase

on an offline mounted WIM Image.

I'm facing this error:

Error: 0x800f0806

The operation could not be completed due to pending operations.

I've tried

  1. sfc /scannow
  2. deleted C:\Windows\WinSxS\pending.xml
  3. Started another DISM.exe session
  4. Cleared Registry keys
  5. Mounted to different location (Mount & Re-Mount)

ADK version: 10.1.19041.1

How to resolve this issue?

Adding the ReseBase command on Mounted WIM image would cause error if online operations are pending.

Add this command before adding online packages/updates to the Mounted WIM image.


I can see from the name of this dism.exe switch that it will revert pending operation:

dism /online /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions

To run the above command, open an elevated command prompt.
