DISM /Online cannot find image


I am running Windows 10 Pro, build 10.0.10586.0, ver. 1511…ran DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth. I got the following error:

Error: 0x800f081f
 The source files could not be found.

You need to specify the source file.

Download Windows 10 ISO from here and use the following command:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /

where X=ISO

If the above fails then try a Repair Installation.


Don’t download ISO image from Media Creation Tool as that will give  Install.esd.
You need the Install.wim which can be obtained by downloading the ISO from Tech Bench.
