Lemma 15.71.8. Let $R$ be a ring. Let $I \subset R$ be an ideal. Let $E^\bullet $ be a complex of $R/I$-modules. Let $K$ be an object of $D(R)$. Assume that

$E^\bullet $ is a bounded above complex of finite projective $R/I$-modules,

$K \otimes _ R^\mathbf {L} R/I$ is represented by $E^\bullet $ in $D(R/I)$,

$K$ is pseudo-coherent, and

$(R, I)$ is a henselian pair.

Then there exists a bounded above complex $P^\bullet $ of finite projective $R$-modules representing $K$ in $D(R)$ such that $P^\bullet \otimes _ R R/I$ is isomorphic to $E^\bullet $. Moreover, if $E^ i$ is free, then $P^ i$ is free.

**Proof.**
We apply Lemma 15.71.2 using the class $\mathcal{P}$ of all finite projective $R$-modules. Properties (1) and (2) of the lemma are immediate. Property (3) follows from Nakayama's lemma (Algebra, Lemma 10.19.1). Property (4) follows from the fact that we can lift finite projective $R/I$-modules to finite projective $R$-modules, see Lemma 15.13.1. Property (5) holds because a pseudo-coherent complex can be represented by a bounded above complex of finite free $R$-modules. Thus Lemma 15.71.2 applies and we find $P^\bullet $ as desired. The final assertion of the lemma follows from Lemma 15.3.5.
