How to Fix Windows Update Errors with Windows Dism 10.1.1001.100
Windows Update is a crucial component of Windows that keeps your system secure and up to date. However, sometimes Windows Update may fail to install updates due to various corruption errors. In this article, we will show you how to use Windows Dism 10.1.1001.100, a powerful tool that can repair Windows image files and fix Windows Update errors.
What is Windows Dism 10.1.1001.100?
Windows Dism 10.1.1001.100 is the latest version of the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool that is included in Windows 10 and Windows Server 2022[^1^]. DISM is a command-line tool that can service Windows images offline or online, by adding, removing, or updating features, drivers, packages, or editions.
One of the main functions of DISM is to scan and repair Windows image files that may be corrupted or damaged by malware, hardware failures, or power outages. Windows image files are the source files that Windows uses to install or update the operating system. If these files are corrupted, Windows Update may not work properly and you may encounter errors when installing updates.
How to Use Windows Dism 10.1.1001.100 to Fix Windows Update Errors?
To use Windows Dism 10.1.1001.100 to fix Windows Update errors, you need to run it from an elevated command prompt (as administrator). You can open an elevated command prompt by typing \"cmd\" in the search box on the taskbar, right-clicking on the Command Prompt app, and selecting \"Run as administrator\".
There are two ways to use DISM to fix Windows Update errors: using DISM online or using DISM offline.
Using DISM Online
Using DISM online means that you are servicing the running operating system. This is the recommended method if you are not able to boot into Windows or if you want to fix errors without using an installation media.
To use DISM online, you need to run the following command:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
This command will scan the Windows image for any corruption and attempt to restore it from a backup source. The backup source can be either a local component store (a hidden folder that contains all the files needed for Windows installation) or a remote source specified by a /Source option.
The /RestoreHealth option can take several minutes or even hours to complete, depending on the level of corruption and the speed of your computer. Do not interrupt the process or turn off your computer until it finishes.
After the /RestoreHealth option completes, you can run the following command to check if there are any remaining corruption errors:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
This command will quickly scan the Windows image and report if there are any corruptions that could not be fixed by /RestoreHealth.
If there are no corruptions found, you can restart your computer and try to run Windows Update again.
Using DISM Offline
Using DISM offline means that you are servicing a Windows image that is not running on your computer, such as an installation media (DVD or USB) or a recovery partition. This method can be useful if you are unable to boot into Windows or if you want to fix errors on another computer.
To use DISM offline, you need to boot your computer from an installation media that matches the version and edition of your Windows operating system. You can create an installation media by using the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft's website[^2^].
After booting from the installation media, select your language and keyboard preferences, and then click on \"Repair your computer\" at the bottom left corner of the screen.
On the Choose an option screen, click on \"Troubleshoot\", then on \"Advanced options\", and then on \"Command Prompt\".
This will open a command prompt window where you can run DISM commands 0efd9a6b88
