    The error may indicate that the install.esd was built using the Recovery compression option. Faster and smaller in size build but cannot be mounted. Using this option, the conversion takes about 20 seconds, with Max compression will take 4 minutes but can be mounted.

    If you wish, you can try:
    Copy install.esd to desktop. Open Admin command and copy/paste each step below to run.

    1. cd %USERPROFILE%\Desktop
    2. Get the source index for Windows edition to use in step 3:
      dism.exe /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\install.esd
    3. dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:"install.esd" /SourceIndex:8 /DestinationImageFile:"install.wim" /Compress:Max
    4. Verify:
      dism.exe /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\install.wim

    In step 3. The install.esd used is from the MCT ISO. Index: 8 is for Windows 10 Pro
    Unfortunately i tried index number 8 but it give me a error number 87. when i try index number 1 it will export untill it reach 84%

    Your install.esd only contains a single index ie. 1 so if you use index 8 which does not exist ==> error
    My install.esd for Windows 10 version 1709 contains 9 indices, each represents a Windows edition. In the screen shot, 8 is for Windows 10 Pro:

    Using index 8, I only want to build an install.wim for Windows 10 Pro only. Note that it only took 30 seconds to complete.

    Get the info on the newly created install.wim, I only get Windows 10 Pro.

    So if you get an error. then either something is wrong with this install.esd or itn does not allow to mount. Some members in this forum might remember this: there was time that the ISO downloaded from MCT did not allow to mount, we had to download the version from Techbench for it to work. As I said earlier, they used different compression algorithm which allow to read and use to install but not modify. You might want to re-download from a different source.
