I meant the last one which shows

<NAME>Windows 7 ULTIMATE</NAME>
<DESCRIPTION>Windows 7 ULTIMATE</DESCRIPTION>
<FLAGS>Ultimate</FLAGS>
<HARDLINKBYTES>4963044302</HARDLINKBYTES>
<DISPLAYNAME>Windows 7 Ultimate</DISPLAYNAME>
<DISPLAYDESCRIPTION>Windows 7 Ultimate</DISPLAYDESCRIPTION>
</IMAGE>
</WIM>

That one is also same for me.....So can I extract it safely and replace if needed in future..

Yes, you will be able to extract files from it to use to replace corrupted files on your system for as long as they are the same file version as the on you are replacing. A different file version may not always work.

I have extracted the files from the DVD to a folder on the desktop..Now can I use copy and paste command in the system 32 folder and replace it?

Hello Bagavan,

You will need to take ownership and set permissions to "Allow" your account "Full Control" of the original files in the system 32 folder before you will be allowed to "Copy" & "Paste" to replace it with the extacted copy. (step 11 tip)

Some of those files will be locked (in use) by the system so you will not be able to replace them while booted to Win 7.

I have the entire winsxs directory extracted on my desktop in a folder. How may I path to it?
Isn't there a faster way than using System File Checker?

Hello Donald,

If this is in reference to your older thread below, then the SFS details that you attached in the thread indicate that you need to uninstall and reinstall your ATI video drivers.


System File Checker Help Please

I want to repair the corrupt files in the winsxs folder. I DON'T use ATI drivers, only NVIDIA.

Then you would just need to use the method outlined in the tutorial to extract the needed files at the exact same location on the installation disk as the same location of the files needing to be replaced in your installation. Afterwards, you should be able to replace them if they are not currently in use by Windows 7.

Well, if you do not use ATI, then you need to check and make sure that you have all ATI drivers are completely uninstalled in your Windows 7. Your attached sfcdetails.txt file at the thread above clearly show that you have unrepairable corrupted ATI driver files listed in it.
