How to use DISM to repair local image on Windows 11

On Windows 11, “Deployment Image Servicing and Management” (DISM) is an advanced built-in tool you can use through Command Prompt to prepare, modify, and repair system images. However, you can also use it alongside the System File Checker (SFC) to resolve system issues.

Usually, when troubleshooting a problem, such as performance issues, a specific error, or a boot problem, you can run the SFC tool to replace corrupted and missing system files. However, if those files are also damaged, the repair won’t work. If this is the case, you can use the DISM tool to bring the local image to a healthy state and then use the SFC command to fix the setup.
