    >>Google for the Win 8.1 ISO file and download it to desktop and burn a dvd. You won't have the ability to install without the prod key but you can insert it when it asks for files. Actually look around there is a work around for installing 8.1 with the 8 disc.

    I guess I'll add onto the end of this thread rather than starting my own, since my problem seems to be related.

    I've got two Windows 8.1 machines. I just updated my laptop, no problem, but my desktop refuses, because of a file corruption, even though it works fine. This was a Windows 7 machine that I upgraded to Windows 8, then to 8.1 and am now trying to update again.

    I've run the DISM utility and it says my problem is fixable, but won't fix it because it can't find a source. I understand that it should be downloading from Windows update, but apparently that isn't working. I've tried all kinds of work arounds, but to no avail. I have a Windows 8 download that I burned onto a DVD and used for the source, but it just seems to ignore it.

    I copied the following from the DISM log. Any help would be appreciated....

    (p) CSI Payload Corrupt amd64_microsoft-windows-b..nager-efi.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.3.9600.17031_en-gb_68408c0dc1958b90\bootmgfw.efi.mui

    CSI Payload Repaired: 0
    CSI Store Metadata refreshed: True
    Total Operation Time: 125 seconds.

    It also gives several warnings...

    One more note. I keep image backups but I'm loath to go back more then last fall, and the problem exists already in that image.

    First , did you try this link? Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    Second, I read that you wanted an 8.1 disc and yes there is a way to make one however although it will perform a refresh with no key it will ask for a product key for an installation. A friend of mine sent me the 8.1 iso to burn which I did but no longer have the iso or I would send it to you.

    Yes, that is the DISM command I ran. It tells me that it needs a source when I run it. I did find a way to get the 8.1 iso, so I have that. But when I set the source for the DISM utility to the DVD, it still tells me it needs a source. Do I need to set the source to the actual folder on the DVD?

    You are over my head.
    Perhaps if you post "Mod help". It will arouse a more knowledgeable person.
    I will be looking for information and get back to you if I can help further.

    This is an edit - I found that after running the DISM prompt and not getting a clean bill of health it is wise to run SFC again. Then DiSM again. If this fails you may have to reinstall.
    I do not think you have to go that far but running both again would be a good idea.
    Try SFC once again and see if you are better off.

    Here's what I finally found. I ran this, then it worked.
    This should be posted all over the internet. Reboot after running it.

    Comes from http://www.thewindowsclub.com/repair-corrupt-windows-image-error-0x800f0906


    1. Open administrative Command Prompt.
    2. Copy the following code and right click paste it into Command Prompt:
    net stop wuauserv
    cd %systemroot%\SoftwareDistribution
    ren Download Download.old
    net start wuauserv
    net stop bits
    net start bits
    net stop cryptsvc
    cd %systemroot%\system32
    ren catroot2 catroot2old
    net start cryptsvc

    Actually in the end it didn't work anyhow. I started a new thread about it to see if it would get any attention.
