I'm trying to use DISM but keep getting the following message:

 

Error: 0x800f0906

 

The source files could not be downloaded.
Use the "source" option to specify the location of the files that re required to restore the feature.  For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077

 

The DISM log file can be found at C:\WINDOWS\Logs\DISM\dism.log

 

Anyone know how to fix this problem?

 

*Update*
I did a bit of searching, and found that some people suggest typing this into the command prompt:

 

net stop wuauserv

cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution

ren Download Download.old

net start wuauserv

net stop bits

net start bits

net stop cryptsvc

cd %systemroot%\system32

ren catroot2 catroot2old

net start cryptsvc

 

Will this help>

Please run System File Checker.

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Important:  There will be a short message at the end of the scan informing you of the results.  If you receive the message "no integrity violations were found" you don't need to do anything else, no corrupt files were found.  You should watch the scan to see the results at the end of the scan.

You should not do anything else with the computer while this scan is running.  Do not stop the scan as this can damage Windows files.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.

This needs to be run using an Administrator account.  

To open the Command Prompt as an Administrator please do the following.

Click/tap on the Taskbar Search icon (magnifing glass) and type cdm.

You will see Command Prompt under Best match, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

Copy and paste the command below in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.

sfc /scannow

This scan will take a while to run, please do not abort the scan as this can result in damage to the operating system.

If integrity issues are found in the scan please post the CBS log using the instructions below.

To find sfc /scannow log open the Command Prompt, copy and paste the command below, then press Enter.

copy %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log %userprofile%\Desktop\cbs.txt

This will place the log on your desktop.  Copy and paste the log at the host website I've suggested below.

This log usually is very large, for this reason you should use a host website like Dropbox to post the log.  You can start a free 30 day trial.  Once you have loaded the log at Dropbox post a link to the website.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

The last time I ran SFC it said it found nothing.  Plus, aren't SFC and DISM two different things?

Please post what you have already tried so I don't ask you to try something you've already tried.

 

If you haven't run a Refresh I would suggest doing this.

 

A Refresh basically will reinstall the operating system, this will not affect your personal files if you use the option to save them.  The downside is that this will uninstall all of your third party programs you installed.  Windows 8.1 will place a list of removed apps on your desktop after refreshing your PC, I would suggest that you copy this list for a reference when you go to reinstall these programs.

Press the Windows key OS4o0pO.png  and the I key to open Settings.

In Settings click/tap on Recovery, click/tap on Refresh your PC without affecting your files, then Get Started.

You will see a page titled Refresh you PC, click/tap on Next.  On the next page click/tap on Refresh.

The computer may turn off and back on during this process, you don't need to do anything.  The scan will display a percentage of its completion.

I tried SFC and it did nothing.  I also tried entering this in CMD and then restarting my computer (waiting to see if it works):

net stop wuauserv

cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution

ren Download Download.old

net start wuauserv

net stop bits

net start bits

net stop cryptsvc

cd %systemroot%\system32

ren catroot2 catroot2old

net start cryptsvc

 

 

I found the above from http://www.thewindowsclub.com/repair-corrupt-windows-image-error-0x800f0906.

 

P.S.  It finished.  Looks like it didn't work; I'm still getting the same error.  I want to fix this problem with out refreshing my PC.

I just tried downloading a Windows 8.1 ISO and use that as a source but I got the 0x800f081f error.

 

This is kinda scaring me.

I'm going to try a system restore, see if that does anything.

Nope, run DISM again and attach CBS.log in order to see which exact files are corrupt.

Sadly, I started the system restore before I got your response.  Good news, though: DISM is working again and the component store corruption is fixed.

 

Thanks for your help, though.

Just to be sure that there is no corruption in the sfc /scannow source files please open the Command Prompt (Admin.) and copy the command below and paste it in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.

 

dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
