    I want to verify & repair my install but running this command fails to automatically fix. Maybe their is an in-place reinstall method so I don't have to reinstall drivers and some programs?

    After sfc /scannow not being able to repair the found integrity errors, run this query:
    Code:
    findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
    It will save a log about the errors.

    Next you can run a /restorhealth command.
    Online:
    Code:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    Or using an install.wim:
    Code:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth:wim:"x:\install.wim":1

    The log file is too large to put here, and I am pretty terrible at going thru logs. Any idea how to fix the issues here? It saids there is corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.

    I have no idea what that is about except inf is a driver format, it is weird that it is saying corrupt because I've never had any issues with this hard drive.

    I'm not sure if joking or not... Some things in PS3 modding are like this but I've never heard of it for PCs.

    It has been a long time but I do not remember ever having trouble with it. I loved how good the graphics looked at the time it was the first time I ever experienced volumetric shadows.

    I meant needing to run sfc /scannow three times in a row to get it to do the job.
