    Extract A Single Version from All-in-One ISO


    Hello. I have a Windows 8.1 PC with UEFI BIOS. I am going to upgrade this Windows with Windows 10. I downloaded the ISO because recently I formatted this PC so inorder to get the free upgrade is a long way! Unfortunately, the ISO I downloaded is an All-In-One type and is about 4.8GB, So for the UEFI to boot the flash drive, it needs to be FAT-32 but since the install.wim is more than 4GB, that won't work. So instead of downloading another x64 bit ISO which would take about a day in our area (Damn You ISPs of INDIA!),
    I need to know if I can extract a single version i.e. Windows 10 Single Language x64 from the All-in-One ISO?

    NO GO! Sorry about that but if you see that one written to an 8gb or larger flash drive you are presented with the options for either the 32bit or 64bit flavor of the edition you downloaded.

    I saw that as well as made repeat downloads to not only get both dual flavor iso downloads but each flavor for both editions since I also upgraded a 7 Home Premium laptop as well as one 7 Ultimate and another 7 Pro pair of desktops. When going for the separate 64bit iso simply right click on the MC Tool and select the run as admin option. Once you go through the selections to bypass the upgrade now or create media to save the download onto the drive be ready to rename it from "Windows.iso to "Windows 10 Home or Pro x64.iso" and find the 64bit coming at about 3,1gb for the 64bit Pro.

    The 64bit Home iso is slightly larger at 3.11gb for some reason while Pro typically should be the larger. Both Home and Pro edition will see the new Windows DVD Player free as one of the first updates to go on until performing a clean insstall to replace the initial upgrade. That can be still bought for $15 at the MS Online store separately.

    I opened up the Combo as well sa the 64bit Home iso for side by side by view here. When origially trying to separate the 64bit from the 32bit it was an automatic fail as the two are too far integrated in this particular type of download as you will see by noticing more folders are present with the 64bit only iso.

    Click image for larger version.

    Disregard the two versions of the MC tool sitting in the same folder on the right. I simply left them there when having to go back for each of the other separate downloads which tends to work out much better.

    You were told how to do it in the other thread where you asked the exact same question....
    Solved UEFI Install AIO - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

    1. If you are upgrading an existing Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, you don't need to boot from the USB in order to do that. You run setup.exe from the USB as a storage device not a boot device.

    2. Since you don't need to boot from the USB in order to do an upgrade, the USB can be formatted with NTFS.

    3. If you do a clean install before doing an upgrade from within the previous operating system, Windows 10 will not activate.

    4. In order to extract a single version install.wim from the AIO install.wim you are going to need to use imageX to do that which is part of the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK). Read the WAIK Tools section of this tutorial:

    So the thing is the ISO which I've downloaded is an AIO, so the guy who complied it, deleted the bootx64.efi, because when I run the setup.exe from the root of the ISO, it gives me an error to put the 64-bit installation disc, but this AIO contains 64-bit too. And when I run Setup.exe from the sources folder, it gives me an error that the setup cannot install a 32-bit OS on a EFI-based System. So the guy made some changes to it. I need to know how can I make it run from this ISO?

    Somebody made changes to it? The best and fast solution is to simply run the tool again and download the 64bit single flavor iso and then be able to open up the image file to extract the set up files needed to see that written to flash drive by the MC tool and run the setup.exe file while booted in Windows as previously advised.

    This "other guy"? Who is that? If someone has been tinkering with things that's even more reason to go after a fresh download of 10 where nothing has been altered! You want the genuine article in 100% complete form!

    Why not just burn the AOI iso to dvd, then just choose the version you want when you do the upgrade, I`m sure it`ll ask you.

    Your only other option is to just do the normal upgrade through windows update or download the correct iso, this time pay attention to what you`re doing.

    You said you formatted it, I hope you reinstalled a fresh copy of 8.1 for the upgrade.

    Why did you download an AIO iso in the first place when it clearly asks you exactly what you want.

    The combo iso is simply Too Large to fit on any blank dvd and will be caught by the Media Creation tool itself as not having enough room. At first here I ended up using a 16gb flash drive until getting several 8gb in to make up Recovery Drives for each system that sees a 10 upgrade. The separate download of each edition in each flavor came about first with Pro since two were to 10 Pro and then both for the Home edition to have onhand as well as upgrading a 7 HP laptop.

    With the original complete Windows.iso downloaded and saved to a folder you then have the option of seeing the full clean install once the upgrade has been tended to. If you are going to run the 64bit get the 64bit iso and make up the full install media and call it a day. That will cover everything including having a live recovery stick since on booting from it you have the recovery options found under the Install Now button.

    You can't. Download a legitimate genuine Windows 10.

    Have not seen any MS references to their ISOs that call any of them All-in-Ones. Where you DO see such references is on pirate board where folks have crafted thing like 16-in-1 versions. Problem with using ANY of these is you do not KNOW what's in them. Maybe they're clean and just compilations; but maybe, they're NOT. Much better course of action is to use Official ISOs from MS. You know what you're getting when you do that.
