DISM, Windows 10, Windows Updates

Just yesterday, MS released a new cumulative update (CU) -- namely, KB4490481. For the first time in my experience, Win10 KB4490481 leaves 6 reclaimable packages behind. What does this mean? After you install...

Drat! I really like the built-in Windows 10 Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) command. But I've discovered some DISM schisms. They embrace Version 1809 (Build 17633.134) and the Insider Preview (Build 18298.1000). Usually, DISM supports get and set operations for something called...

DISM, Windows 10, Windows Update, Windows Update Management

As Windows 10 garners updates, superseded components can accumulate in the Windows Component Store (aka WinSxS). You can use the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) command to clean such things up. This is useful, not just for one-at-a-time grooming of Windows images in everyday use....

I don't normally write much about the Insider Preview builds for this blog post. Practicing Enterprise admins have enough on their hands keeping up with current branch versions of the OS. But when I see new features of potential benefit, I break that restriction happily. As of Build 17682, the...

Huh! Turns out there's an easy way to use a reference Windows installation to create an ISO file. This might not sound like a big deal, but give it some thought. For one thing, it means admins can use a customized Windows 10 installation to spawn as many copies as they like. For another thing, it...

Insider Preview Build 16199 was released for Windows 10 a couple of days ago (5/17). In the wake of its install, I checked on Windows 10 drive handling. To that end, I consulted the Reliability Monitor, which shows driver installs as it tracks system changes and errors. Sure enough,...

If you're running the Current Branch release for Windows 10 -- namely, Build 15063 -- you may have a DISM problem. Some tangible percentage of such installs will puke if you run DISM /checkhealth on the runtime image. But with a Build 15063 DISM fix available, you can repair this anomaly yourself....
