This all started with: Win 8.1 could not be installed. error code 0X8007003. I ran DISM successfully with the /RestoreHealth flag, but it made no difference to installing Win 8.1. I ran DISM again (successfully) and looked at the log for "fails".
The repeated fail was:
2011-06-10 10:12:47, Warning DISM DISM Provider Store: PID=2552 Failed to Load the provider: C:\Users\ROSMAR~1\AppData\Local\Temp\0709052E-4C8D-43AD-B837-FB57E1CF832A\PEProvider.dll.
2011-06-10 10:12:47, Info DISM DISM Provider Store: PID=2552 Failed to get and initialize the PE Provider. Continuing by assuming that it
is not a WinPE image. - CDISMProviderStore::Final_OnConnect
How can I fix this? Is this the reason I can't install Win 8.1? Should I be looking at something else to fix whatever is generating error code 0X8007003?
