Windows 10: Win 10 .WIM ISO copy
Yep. Just make sure that you format the stick with FAT32.
If you have a Windows 10 ISO, then mount it. If you have a USB or DVD, then insert it. Look in the sources folder. If you have a dual 32-bit/64-bit ISO, USB or DVD there will be a sources folder under each x86 and x64 folder. In the sources folder will either be install.wim or install.esd.
I don't think you can convert from wim to esd, but here is how to convert esd to wim:
ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File - Windows 10 Forums
The ISO created from install.esd will contain install.wim.
It is neither... And it does not matter if was installed from .esd or .wim file....
That Tutorial is now Purpose built - for windows upgrade .esd file...
And yes you can convert esd to wim and wim to esd..
I've burned 3 of those iso's the last one the iso was downloaded direct from MS. So I DBAN'ed the HDD and tried a clean install of 10. I tried 3 times with 3 different discs and they all stopped at 15%.
The upgrade from 7 was easy and it works fine. I just can't install from disc. I hope the factory DVD's will work better than the burned ones.
edit: I always check the verify box and it always fails to verify. I tried turning off all virus protection and it still wont verify.
Just a thought..
You can not use DVD-RW disks..
They have to be DVD-R disks..
I always Create USB Media - no need to make drink coaster from DVD's
I'm using DVD-R. I guess I'll wait till it's available on DVD.
Why would a USB stick be any better than a disc?
I guess I'll try to get a USB stick to verify. Thanks for the tip.
I made 2 discs exactly the same way.
I used Tech Bench and created DVDs.
When I right click file explorer on the left for one I see; Win 10 iso.wim.
When I right click file explorer on the left for the other I see; J_CCSA_x64FRE_EN_US_DV5.
For the 2nd, with the odd looking characters, when I look to sources, I see,"wimprovider.dll".
Why are they different and more importantly will they both do the same job of installing and repairing with DISM?
The second dvd seems to be burned correctly. The "Sources" directory/folder should contain a file by the name of "install.wim".
That's the one that DISM would use if you pointed it to that path.
The first dvd however seems like a "coaster" to me.
Win10_1511_EN_64 is what I see when I click to download. Is that correct? That is what is says on the bad disc which i cannot expand.
I need the site to download athe file for Win 10 Pro x 64 as .WIM
I'm trying out an unactivated copy of W10 Pro on a virtual machine. Apart from not being able to personalise the desktop it seems to be fully functioning. What else am I missing by having an unactivated copy?
Will the Copy To/Move To registry hack for Windows work with Windows 10? Add Copy To / Move To on Windows 7 or Vista Right-Click Menu
I have the windows 10 ISO file on my hard drive and am trying to copy it do a DVD+R. But I get a message that tells me that the DVD has to be formatted to NTFS. When I try to format I don't have a NTFS option. Isn't there a way to move the iso form...
I guess that'll be called "exporting" the Bookmarks file ? Under Windows 10.
Anyway, I need to have a copy of my favorite websites, o bookmarks, on a pendrive, to use on other computers.
Thanks for any help.
Some of you may remember my tutorial on this subject from the sevenforums tutorial section. I have just tested this tutorial for Windows 10TP and it works here too. You may be asked to download a later version of EasyBCD. I recommend you use that....
