Anyone seen this odd (and repeatable) error?
8.1 Pro ISO created using WindowsSetupBox.exe and a retail key (not a school machine) successfully installs 8.1 Pro but SFC reports corrupt files, as does DISM. DISM isn't able to repair the problem, either by using Windows Update (default) as the source or forcing it to look at the install ISO.
This also happens on a clean install that I haven't done anything to beyond creating a user account.
Re-downloading and recreating the ISO shows the same behaviour on a fresh VM (virtualbox) on another disk. I haven't tested it on real hardware yet, but a Windows 8 vm on the same disk doesn't have any problems.
The ISO does appear to be UK-regionalised and some of the apparently corrupt/missing files from CBS.log are files relating to language packs (Norwegian, Chinese, etc) that I wouldn't necessarily expect to be present.
Anyone seen this? My thoughts are 1) Wait for a bit and the retry in case MS are having problems. 2) Use another source in case creating an ISO from an (apparently) regionalised install source has broken something that sfc and dism expect to find.
