Maintenance :: SFC Scannow And DISM Results Clarification
Apr 9, 2014
When I run SFC, I get "Windows Resources did not find any integrity violations", however when I run DISM, I get the message "The component store is repairable" and "Could not locate source file" messages. This seems to be inconsistent - is there something I should do, or is it normal? Just trying to understand the results when I run these.
I've been trying several things throughout the day and I have had no success in fixing the corrupted files. I have ran "sfc /scannow" several times (even in safe mode). I have also ran "Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth" before and after "sfc /scannow" to no avail.
I am running Windows 8.1, I tried booting from my Windows 8 Pro DVD but whenever I tried to run "sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c: /offwindir=d:windows" I would get an error: Windows Resource Protection could not start the Repair service". How I can fix this without doing a clean install or refresh?
Windows Update works.Everything below is done in an elevated command window.SFC /scannow fails. Error is "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them."DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup completes without error.DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth completes. Says corruption is repairable.DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth fails with error code 0x800f081f.DISM log is full of Chinese characters (attached).SFCFIX completes. Says there is no corruption.Tried above in safe mode w/ networking. SFC and DCIM fail to complete.Ran Microsoft Safety Scanner against computer. No infected files.Ran SFC and DISM 11 times.Compared SFC and DISM logs to a set on a working computer (no errors). Exceptions in faulty computer logs are also present in working computer logs.
Recently I got problems when running SFC or DISM to repair my system. As far as I know it concerns the shortcuts in the folder Administrative Tools, there I changed under Properties the Run option to Maximised Windows and since then SFC and DISM have shown this error that the services are unable to download the proper source files (they admonish a mismatch I cannot correct).
I am running a Windows 8.1 Update 1 system without the Pro version, so I have no access to its exclusive features. I attach the corresponding log files after a run of DISM and SFC for more infos.
After updating to 8.1u1, i'm running "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" and I get the following:
C:WindowsLogsDISM>dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool Version: 6.3.9600.17031 Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031 [==========================100.0%==========================] The restore operation failed. Either the repair source was not found or the comp onent store cannot be repaired. Error: 0x800f081f DISM failed. No operation was performed. For more information, review the log file. The DISM log file can be found at C:WindowsLogsDISMdism.log
I have a desktop computer running Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit. My computer suffered from an improper shutdown during a power outage. I am getting multiple error messages on logging in, and the sfc /scannow command shows several corrupt files, including msvcr80.dll and multiple others, preventing programs like Microsoft Word from running properly.
I am getting the message after running sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt that Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%LogsCBSCBS.log. I used the findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%LogsCBSCBS.log >"%userprofile%Desktopsfcdetails.txt" command to get this log outputted to a sfcdetails.txt log, and it shows which files are corrupt.
I then decided to turn to DISM, in an elevated command prompt, to ensure the component store was good, so that SFC can fix the files. This is where I am getting lost.
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth states that: The component store is repairable. However, when I run Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth , I am told (after some minutes of it running) that DISM failed, no operation was taken, with an error code of 0x80240021.
Looking at the dism.log file, I am seeing a very long log. These are the initial lines:
 Caller did not request sparse mount  Mounting new image. Wim: [?GLOBALROOTdeviceharddisk0partition1RecoveryWindowsREWinre.wim] Image Index:  Mount Path: [C:WINDOWSTEMP35f47719-b059-4f12-b5ee-101b2768bade]
From what I can make, some file name or directory is incorrect? I have attached my dism.log file (saved as a .doc file for attachment purposes), my sfcdetails.txt log (obtained from the sfc /scannow function), and a screenshot of the Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth error message when I run it in PowerShell. How I can run DISM correctly to fix my component store.
I am dual booting Windows 8 and win7. I actually have Windows 8 installed on its own hard drive and win 7 installed in its own hard drive. The win7 hard drive has been in use for the past 2 years and I have had Windows 8 running for about a week now. I purchased another hard drive for Windows 8 and left the old Win7 as it was.
I also have 3 other hard drives in the system. Everything is formatted NTFS.
So my system is as follows
Drive C - Boot Drive - I physically swap out the dedicated hard drive for Win 8 or Win 7 Drive D - internal 250 GB sata drive Drive F - internal 250 GB sata drive Drive H - internal 250 GB hard drive.
I have been running this config for about 2 years under Win7 with no problems.
The problem that I have now is when I swap the boot drive and boot up a different OS than last time (Like booting Windows 8, powering down system, swap boot drive, boot Win7) the system always says that there are problems on the 3 non-boot drives. It runs chkdsk(it least that is what it look like) and processes the 3 non boot disks one at a time which take about 10-12 minutes for all 3. Most of the time it finds no problems, but about 1 out of 5 boots will find a problem with one of the disks and then fixes it. The disks seem to be OK while I am running. I then power down and swap boot drive and reboot the other os and we start all over again. I am powering the system completely down for each reboot to make sure that the disk cache is flushed.So far the disk problems have been fixed by chkdsk at boot, but I am sure the day will come when the disk cannot be fixed and I will loose data.
I followed the tutorial on this site for scannow. When completed (no errors), I typed exit at the command prompt. I have only a blank screen with functioning mouse pointer. When restarting I get the hp logo, then the windows "please wait" icon for about one second then it goes black. I originally cloned windows from my sea gate 1Tb hhd to the toshiba ssd. I can boot from the hhd with no issues. Just won't boot from ssd. I would run the recovery disc but it claims I need 140 Gb to do so and I only have 128Gb.
I have been trouble with a few bsod problems and i was instructed to change my ram timings to 9-9-9-24 so i did and i also changed my frquency to 1333 but hen when i go into cpu-z i get different results or is this the same.
when i make a search for directories, then i double click on the wanted directory; now i would like to navigate as normal, instead explorer keeps in the path box "search-display.." not allowing me to navigate or to expand directory tree, how can i instruct it to exit search mode and continue from that path?
Today the search function randomly stopped working. I can be clicked on the Documents folder, type in the file name and it says no results found. I can be looking at the file and it says no results found. Until this afternoon it was working just fine!!
I am trying to generate LangINI for: 1. Boot.WIM, 2. Install.WIM, 3. WinRE.WIM (inside Install.WIM) 4. and maybe for main distribution tree (burned into ISO).
Directories (with time chronology of their creation): ISO is extracted to C:ISO Boot.WIM is mounted to C:Mount Install.WIM is mounted to C:Mount (after Boot.WIM is unmounted) While Install.WIM is mounted, the WinRE.WIM is mounted to C:WinRE
My doubts: A. I don't believe it, because unpacked WIMs have directories like "Program Files" "Windows"... so "sources" (generated by /Gen-LangINI) directory looks inappropriate. IMHO distribution shouln'd be same as mounting point, but I just mounted vendor's boot.wim it ALSO has Program Files", "Windows"... AND "sources" inside. B. Also I am not sure about those two commands in Install.WIM. Isn't it overkill
I am trying to run CoreInfo.exe to see if my processor supports Hyper-V before paying msoft for Windows 8-pro, but Windows 8.0 slams the CMD window shut instantly.
I tried all suggestions but still it flashes open then closed.
Failed: Elevated command prompt Failed: CMD [enter] coreinfo.exe -v Failed: Set Run as Administrator Failed: Set Compatibility to 7, XP, Vista Failed: CMD /K CoreInfo Failed: CMD /K Core info > core.txt = Redirect output to a text file
It seems like Coreinfo is appending an "Exit" to the command line command string. About right for the inept msoft programmers.
i have a problem when i search for app on start screen, there is no results unless i write the full word. for example, when i search"pain"= "no apps match your search", but when i search "paint" ifound paint app.so what is the problem here?
another question, how can i search for files for all computer not user files only?
I just reset my laptop and am upgrading to 8.1. This is the third time I have tried upgrading and every time it results in a blank black screen. I believe it has to do with video drivers. By a blank black screen I mean totally blank. There is no backlight and there is no cursor. I had this problem when it upgraded the intel graphics driver to the .3345 version so I went into safe mode and rolled it back. After the reset I uninstalled all intel graphics driver and used the microsoft driver. When I update to 8.1 I get the black screen even with this video driver. I will keep trying using the stable intel driver to see what happens.
Yesterday I updated my laptop to Windows 8.1. On using Google to search, the result was not as expected. All text is shown in a single column one word on top of the other!!! I've checked and installed 8.1 updates and I've reset IE11 but still the same. No matter what I search for, text is shown one word on top of the other. I've tried Bing and as expected, being a Microsoft product, this displays correctly
I want to install the .NET framework 3.5 through control panel and it ends with 0x800F0906. I also tried the DISM method and that one ends with 0x800F0081F (source could not be found).
I tried directly from Windows 8.1 DVD, copied sxs folder and tried it that way. I even downloaded some offline installers (from mydigitallife forums) and that too doesn't work. I also tried restarting the Windows Update service to no avail.
My log file from DISM:
