WinFix: System Update Readiness Tool – Windows 8/8.1/Server 2012/2012 R2

Windows 8/8.1 and Windows Server 2012/2012 R2 have built in System Update Readiness Tool.
It is recommended to run to check System Files Corruption.


Applies To:

  • Windows 8/8.1
  • Windows Server 2012/2012 R2

Steps:

S1-1. Run Command Prompt in Administrator Mode

S1-2. To start scanning, execute

dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

SUR_W62_0001

SUR_W62_0002

S1-3. If the result of the scan is the component store is repairable,

it means there is corruption occurred and it can be repairable by running /RestoreHealth

You can use /CheckHealth to check the repairable flag marked in registry

SUR_W62_0003

S1-4. To start repair, execute

dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

SUR_W62_0004

However, if /RestoreHealth is unable to repair and return Error 0x800f0906,
this means that DISM is not be able to repair unless the good WinSxS source is provided.

SUR_W62_0005

Once you have the WinSxS source required, you need to add /Source:<FilePath> to repair file corruption.

dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:<FilePath>

SUR_W62_0006

In this case, the source is /Source:B:\ which is DVD drive where I copied the good WinSxS.
