Similar to the System File Checker is the DISM Tool. This will, if possible, download files to repair missing or corrupt data. Opn the admin command prompt and type:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
Press enter and await results.
Thats interesting I didnt know you could use that with server 2008.
Just mounted the VHDX file on widnows 8 and tried to run it from CMD:
DISM /Image:G:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
& Got a error about it not working on this type.
Dism is not part of the server 2008 build so I cant use it from the recovery cmd. Going to try booting from a windows PE environment and see if that works. If I boot to the PE environment will the /Online switch work or will it try to make changes to the PE environment?
/Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth are not supported on server 2008 or Vista.
Can you initiate a OOBE from DISM? or from an offline state?
