    I saw this thread right after creating the ISO by following this article for Win 8.1
    http://www.windoblog.com/windows-8-1-esd-in-to-dvd-iso/

    Kari's tut is a simplified version and should be easier to follow.

    I was able to successfully create the ISO but I just have one question. Is the resulting ISO a generic installer or is it like a customized image with all the manually installed programs?

    First, I have now heard from a few users that they do not have the ESD file at C:\RecoveryImage. For those users I have three questions:

    1. Is the install on a physical computer or on a virtual machine?
    2. How big is the drive C:?
    3. Did you check the C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources folder, does it have the install.esd file ($Windows.~BT is a hidden folder)?


    Then the Badrobot's question:

    No. The ISO will be like any other valid install media, you can compare it to any Windows install DVD or ISO. It is for a clean install only including the OS components with native built-in apps, resulting a fresh Windows 10 TP. Exactly as if you had used an ISO downloaded from Microsoft.

    Here's one scenario to create a custom system image to include all your third party software but no user accounts:
    • Create the ISO as told in this tutorial, burn it to DVD / USB
    • Install Windows 10 TP Build 9860 using your DVD / USB
    • Interrupt the Windows installation and follow instructions in this tutorial to create your custom image: System Image - Create Hardware Independent System Image (Part One Step 1.2 shows when and how to interrupt Windows installation)

    I don't have the ESD, the drive is 1TB with most free and I don't have the $windows. folder either.

    It seems to have worked as per the tutorial for me (my Command Prompt had some extra messages though).

    I'm running a W10TP VM (VMware Player on a Linux Mint 17 Host).
    My virtual HDD is 40GB.
    I had install.esd in the location mentioned in the tutorial.
    I also have the other folder.

    @z3r010, you had 9841 on a desktop, did the PC Settings > Update & Recovery > Download new build > Install 9860 and it went without issues?

    Do you have the 9860 ISO? If you search the C: from Explorer Search for EXT:ESD, does it find anything?

    @lehnerus2000, could you please be a guinea pig now and install 9860 on a new vm using your ISO to see if it installs OK? Just delete the vm afterwards.

    Nothing.

    @z3r010, I had a typo in my last post, I naturally meant to ask if you have any 9860 WIM files, not ISO, mostly interested in if the 9860 install.wim is somewhere there to be found.

    I assume you had the Show hidden items enabled when searching. A mystery, how could 9860 have installed if you have no install.wim nor install.esd?

    You don't happen to have 10 TP Enterprise edition?

    Anyway geeks, all ideas welcome. I will concentrate on this but would for sure like to hear from others.

    No problems.

    It'll take me ~20 minutes.
    I'll just have to swap to Linux Mint (back soon).
