Remotely run sfc using reference files on the hard drive? Windows 7 Ultimate

Is there a way to run sfc and have the reference files NOT on a DVD but on the hard drive somewhere?
I would like to run sfc remotely and can transfer the DVD files onto the hard drive.
But I *can't* insert the DVD if I'm not there!

SFC on Windows 7 should run without any DVD at all. True for Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 / 8.1 and Windows 10 Tech Preview.

Is it asking for DVD or are you just assuming?

Winsxs and other folders provide the information for SFC to proceed.
