    Hi, I've just tried to follow these instructions, when I run ESD to ISO I get a message that this is not an original Microsoft ESD file - it certainly is, I've downloaded it from Microsoft this afternoon

    Any thoughts?
    Can you show us where you got the ESD from? I don't recall MS supplying ESD files.. only ISOs.

    Downloaded from the Microsoft Create installation media page and (as instructed) unchecked the tick box to use recommended options for this PC.

    The downloaded file was a disk image and in the 'sources' folder was a file named 'install.esd'

    When I attempted to use the ESD to ISO tool I got the error mentioned in my previous post.

    the tool is looking for a 4-5 index install.esd..

    you are using the install.esd from the setup media that was already created from the 4-5 index esd..

    you are using this tool incorrectly
    What is it you want to do ??? Create an ISO out of the USB Media you created already....

    The Media creation either creates USB media or it creates a Media ISO

    The "disk image" is the ISO....
    inside that Image is an install.esd - which is the wrong esd for this tool...

    download your media from here > https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/techbench

    it contains an install.wim instead of install.esd..

    Thanks, I'd come to that conclusion myself yesterday evening - sadly (even though it worked and I could run DISM) it doesn't solve the issue and there are still some corrupt files which seem beyond rescuing.

    Rather than waste any more time trying to fix it I'm going to have to reinstall (again).

    I'm probably going to get shot down in flames here but Windows 10 is still too flaky when it's being pushed hard (3D animation etc) as it seems to fall over all too regularly on our 'work' machines but is fine on the (similar spec) 'home' machines.

    What do I do if the computer restarts and updates Windows 10 on its own? The Install.esd of the new build is no longer in $WINDOWS.~BT\ folder and instead is found the Install.wim of the old build.
    IF roll back Windows build in Advanced Options, when it is finished the resulting $WINDOWS.~BT\ folder equals exactly a Windows 10 install image of the latest release.

    all somebody has to do is run a command when the new build is downloading to snag the official esd download links.. Then run the newest esd decrypter wimlib v18 - it now support newest build decryption...

    Code:
    if exist "C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\products.xml" ( 
    findstr /c:"<FilePath>" "C:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\products.xml" >"%userprofile%\desktop\Windows 10 ESD Download Links.txt"

    A reminder, do this to copy the upgrade ESD file to a safe please:

    1.) If Windows Update shows Install now button after downloading the build upgrade, click / tap it to extract upgrade files to $WINDOWS.~BT folder (install.esd file is not ready yet):

    2.) When Windows Update shows you the upgrade is ready to be started, Restart now button is shown. Do not click / tap it yet:

    3.) In File Explorer, open the C: drive. If the $WINDOWS.~BT folder is not shown, select View > Hidden items to show it:

    4.) Open the $WINDOWS.~BT folder, open subfolder Sources, copy install.esd file and paste it anywhere outside the $WINDOWS.~BT and other Windows system folders:
    Click image for larger version.

    That's it. You can now start the upgrade restarting PC, the install.esd is saved and you can use it after the upgrade to create an ISO image.

    The tool has been updated today, only change being I have changed the title ESD to ISO decpryption to ESDtoISO because the word Decryption in title caused some people to complain about it (don't ask me why!).

    If you have downloaded the tool after the June 5th and do not mind a word apparently not belonging to title being there, you don't need to redownload as the tool itself is the same.


    On another note, something very important I want to address:

    I was asked if I think I have done injustice to original developers of the ESD to ISO conversion script, taking the credits. Answer to that question is and should have been very clear all the time.

    Let's start with a quote from beginning of this tutorial:

    information   Information
    Thanks to our member topgundcp for the idea. This tutorial will use the decrypt script mentioned in his post, according to new information I have found the original authors are users abbodi1406, qad and synchronicityI from the MDL site, complete credits in the Read Me file included in the tool downloadable packet. I have simply edited the script a bit and finally made these step by step instructions.

    That notice has been at the very beginning of this tutorial since the day it was published.

    Furthermore, the ReadMe file included in this tool begins with what's shown in below screenshot, ReadMe file being unedited and not modified in any way since the tool and this tutorial were published:

    I hope the above answers all possible questions about where the credits belong. If some of you geeks still feel I have taken credits from someone else's work, I can't help it; in my opinion I have done everything in my power to give credit where credit belongs.
