I'm running Windows 10 in Safe Mode without Networking - the only way I can get Windows to boot.
I'm assuming it's a problem with the system image since I can't get Windows to start up any other way. Possibly to do with the networking drivers??
The problem has been creeping up on me. Every time Windows 10 would ask to update (currently running 10.0.15063 170317-1834) and restart the update would freeze around 33-35%. I'd do a hard restart and Windows would boot up in ASO allowing me to roll back to the previous version. I didn't know what else to do since I couldn't get the update to go through and eventually Windows would force a restart. I'm now at the point where if I try to roll back to a previous version Windows loads to a black screen. If I try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking, same thing.
I've run the SFC diagnostics and the DISM diagnostics. No luck.
I downloaded a Windows ISO and extracted the install.wim to the C:\ drive and tried DISM RestoreHealth with and without Limited Access. I get the above error codes. 906 without Limited Access, 81f with Limited Access.
I attempted a regedit following instructions from this site: (https://www.kapilarya.com/dism-error-0x800f081f-the-source-files-could-not-be-found-windows-10)
I attempted manually fixing the corruptions following the instructions from this site: (https://appuals.com/how-to-fix-dism-error-0x800f0906-the-source-file-could-not-be-downloaded/)
This is a work computer and I really don't want to have to re-install Windows along with all the apps. Any help is appreciated.
**EDIT**: Should also note that any option I choose in the Advanced Startup Options that require selecting a user and entering the password do not work. As soon as I enter a keystroke the whole thing freezes.
