    DISM newbie here... I'm trying to repair an offline Win 10 Pro build 17134.165 after fixing a corrupted drive that affected files in the Windows folder (registry wasn't affected). Windows will boot, but gives me a black screen after logging in.

    SFC fails and /CheckHealth tells me that I need to do some repairs.

    I took a 17134 ESD, exported every index to a WIM, mounted and updated every index in the WIM with KBKB4338819 (17134.165) , then unmounted/committed the changes, and used the updated WIM to try to /RestoreHealth.

    That should get me what I need, correct? But DISM log file keeps telling me that the payload can't be found. I am assuming the affected files would be in the updated WIM. I tried every index in the WIM, too. All were failed attempts.

    Can anyone tell me what I may have missed? Or something else that I could try?

    Thank you!

    Mike

    To properly convert an ESD to ISO, use ESD>ISO v40 by @abbodi1406.

    Thank you! I just tried it - converted to a WIM and now have a script running to mount and update all of the indices. This process will take a while, so I will try to /RestoreHealth tomorrow and will report back! Thank you!

    I was finally able to try it. Still didn't work "as is," but I mounted the WIM and that did the trick!

    Thank you for the help!
