    Win 10 .WIM ISO copy


    Hello
    I was using Win 10 x 64 as .ESD but was advised to use .WIM.
    I burned a DVD from the .WIM file at Tech Bench.
    I then made a copy, however, the when you open the copy there is a folder called temporary burn folder. When you open it, it says what the original says.

    I have 3 questions;
    1- will this 'copy' install and repair, or should I burn another DVD?
    2- will the motherboard recognize this original .WIM ,with no keywords, as I did the upgrade then burned DVDs with other .ESD discs?
    3- please suggest how a low level user can burn a copy of another DVD, .WIM disc? I used Windows before.
    The attachments clarify what I am trying to say.

    It looks to me like you just copied over the downloaded ISO file to DVD. That's not what you want to do. You want to make a DVD using the ISO file as the image. I don't have my Windows 10 computer in front of me right now, so I don't know if a right click on the ISO file and a menu option to make a DVD from the image is built in to Windows 10. I do know you can use IMGBURN to do it.
    The Official ImgBurn Website

    If you right click on the ISO file and select Mount - you will see the directory structure of the image that is contained within the ISO. When you burn a DVD from the ISO image (instead of just copying the ISO file itself over), you should get the same directory structure on the DVD. But to have the DVD bootable, you can't just copy files over - you have to use a process like IMGBURN to create the DVD from the image file.

    I agree with NavyLCDR but also observe that the free Rufus tool also builds a bootable USB flash drive for installation of Win10, and that you can also use Microsoft's own Media Creation Tool to do likewise.

    The question is specifically about creating a WIM-based installation media. Media Creation Tool will create a ESD-based media. Unless you are referring to some sort of trick with MCT, this is not what the OP needs.

    Thank you all.

    You are right that I want a .WIM file. Would the best way to have a back up disc to go to the same site and do a seond download to burn seeing I am having trouble reproducing this disc? Any comments on ny other queries?

    Download the Techbench ISO

    Insert DVD > Right-Click the ISO > burn disk image > verify DVD Burner Drive and select Burn

    Thank you - it worked. Can I install/repair without and keys and clip 'skip' when asked like I did with the other .ESD discs I had?

    same way..

    An install.esd is a super compressed version of the install.wim..

    install.wim and install.esd both contain the same information...

    the install.wim is preferred for any Dism Repair commands..

    I am so relieved. I did the upgrade so my motherboard recognizes me but I thought with this new .WIM I would have problem.
    Thank you very much once again.

    Sorry for the mention of MCT in that it is ESD based, but the Rufus approach works with whatever you give it, including wim-based ISO files. So I get a 50% right, not a complete reject, OK? --Ed--
