    Extract a .WIM from an .ESD?

    Hi guys,

    I'm trying to make a 10 Pro 10586 image with MDT 2013 Update 1 and I cannot use the ISO I got from the Media Creation Tool. I realized this is because the ISO now uses a install.esd instead of install.wim; I read that it is possible to extract the .wim from a ESD file...

    Any ideas?

    Assuming you don't have a metered connection wouldn't it be easier to download the ISO you want straight from this link ?


    These files contain install.wim instead of the .esd format.
