    Hi there

    As above - HAS ANYBODY ACTUALLY DONE IT YET ON INSIDER BUILD LATEST RELEASE.
    Most of us know about ESD-->ISO etc etc - but in this instance the boot mechanism DOES NOT WORK (at least on my system -- W10 PRO X-64 insider build).

    Cheers

    Added a fix for the clean-install bug in build 14251 (or later builds if the bug persist)

    Jimbo. In addition you need to make sure your firmware is going to see it as bootable.

    One of the WTG conditions is that you must be able to boot from USB. This isn't really (exactly) required. You do though need a boot loader though.

    I know you have been playing with home servers and so on and they might not boot from any old disk. You could use rEFInd or GRUB as the bootloader on a disk that will work and then point it (if it doesn't find it automatically) at your install.

    If you are doing that making a BIOS based windows install (with the Windows bootloader and everything on the C drive) is easier.

    Just make one partition - copy in the contents of your iso with dism, bcdboot and there you are. Tell your loader to look for it if it doesn't find it automatically (I use rEFINd and it finds all Windows bootloaders automatically wherever they are but that does depend on your UEFI firmware - you might have to add it to the NVRAM)

    Once you have got that working you can add the other answer files to make it the same as a WTG.
