Windows Eight forum: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/26095-repair-install-windows-8-a.html

 

The tutorial will show you how to do a repair install (aka: in-place upgrade install) to fix your currently installed Windows 8 without losing anything.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do a repair install of Windows 8.

DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8: http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/26512-dism-fixing-component-store-corruption-windows-8-a.html

But again the site states "You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do an Inbox Corruption Repair with the Deployment Imaging and Servicing Management (DISM) tool.'

 

Also: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/947821

 

It would seem that your options are limited. Standby as another with more Win 8 knowledge may post.

The DISM can only be run from administrator command prompt. I don't know of any other way Im not a expert at stuff like this either.

Before running the DISM command you need to run sfc /scannow to determine if there is any file corruption.
 
To run the sfc /scannow open the command prompt using the instructions instructions below.  When it is open copy and paste sfc /scannow, then press Enter.
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.  If it finds corrupted system files and can not repair these, then you should run the DISM command.  That is what this command is used for.
 
Press the Windows key rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png and the X key at the same time.  Select Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu that opens.
 
When the Command Prompt opens copy and past the command below, then press Enter.
 
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

Hi silumor

 

 

You will only execute Dism command if Sfc command fails to repair corrupted files.

 

Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.

Please type below command into Command Prompt and press Enter key.

The following command scans integrity of all protected Windows system files and repairs files with problems when possible.
 

Sfc  /Scannow   /OFFBOOTDIR=D:\   /OFFWINDIR=D:\Windows

Please replace partition letter D: with Windows installed partition letter.  When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

 

 

If Sfc command not resolve the boot problem execute below command and restart your computer.

dism  /Image:C:\    /Cleanup-Image   /RevertPendingActions

Replace C:\ partition letter with a partition letter of Windows OS installed partition.
