DISM repair tool – error 0x800f0906, Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • When Have tried to repair corrupted Windows Image using DISM repair tool and received the error :  0x800f0906

    Below are the details after running the Windows Component tool:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 6.3.9600.17031

    Image Version: 6.3.9600.17031


    Error: 0x800f0906

    The source files could not be downloaded.
    Use the “source” option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see

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

    Do not know how can I fix it. The laptop has been bought with the system installed without  separate installation disc.

    Thanks and best regards, Ewa

  • Ewa

    You need to download & mount an OS image to use the "sources" switch

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess  Where "X" is the drive letter where the ISO is located.  Simply change the "X" to the correct drive letter

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. Shall I use recovery patrition - in my laptop Lenovo Z-710 have such patrition but not so sure if it is on the driver C, probably yes. Generally for system recovery it is used application OneKey Recovery located on disc C.

    Shall I put letter "C" on the place "X" ?

    Thanks and best regards,

    Ewa, Zigzag is correct X will = ISO/DVD Drive letter when mounted.

    Recovery from C drive and fixing store corruption are unrelated, I think you are mixing yourself up Ewa.

    i.e if ISO mounts on D:/

    "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:D:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess "

    DISM tool will try to repair corrupt files with the original files from the install sources, That's why Install.wim is used.

  • I have the problem with /online option, when I load with DVD Windows 8.1 disk.

    I try to make  DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /sourse:WIM:f:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess

    But unfortunately I got message - DISM doesn't support  Windows PE servicing with online option

    How can I restore my OS, if no one option  like reset; refresh; boot restart weren't successful.
