    for retrieving files on broken OS, it's either that or Linux live USB. But HBCD is easier to use because of the mini-XP.

    10041 iso?

    Anyone know of a program that you can install on USB and boot from that to access files on your hard drive?
    I'm late here but are you aware that an ISO for 10041 has been released by Windows update?
    With a clean ISO file burned to DVD you shouldn't have a problem.
    The converted ESD file can be suspect.

    What a strange statement! Self made ISO from the ESD is exactly the same, to the smallest detail. Please check your facts.

    Converted ESDs

    Sorry Kari but I used your files when they were posted and converted three ESDs.
    I had three un-bootable ISOs.
    I downloaded the ISOs from the source I posted , burned them to DVD, and did a clean install on a 32 bit and a 64 bit machine without incident.
    I speak not from facts but from my own experience,

    The tutorial tells how to create an ISO from the ESD located on your own computer. ESD file exists if you did an upgrade to build 10041.

    Later on we learned that MS published direct download links to ESD files, whic I re-posted in the tutorial in this post. In the same post I told that the tool in my tutorial does not work with these ESD files, that you should use another decrypter with them. The tool mentioned in the tutorial only works with the ESD file created on your own computer when you upgrade from an earlier version of Windows or from an earlier build of Windows 10.

    The ESD file is nothing else than decrypted and compressed ISO, to save download bandwidth. The tools, older one in my original tutorial and the newer one told in the post with direct links to downloadable ESD files work for 100% sure. Any error in creating an ISO can only be either a user caused error due not following the instructions to the letter, a bad download, an error iun burning the ISO or such.

    If the ESD file is not damaged, and if the user follows the instructions, the ISO images created from the ESD files are to the finest detail exactly the same than the downloadable ISO images directly from Microsoft.

    This is a fact.

    I agree!
    If everything is done correctly, the files are not corrupt, the decryptor is not corrupt etc. the ISO should be perfect.
    BUT, mine wasn't.............. three times!
    The two ISOs from Microsoft, were burned to DVD with Imgburn, the burns were verified, and then used to clean install on the same two machines that wouldn't boot from the files you posted.
    I prefer the MS ISOs.............. no if'ns!
    UP and running.
    Working fine.
    Kari, I have the utmost respect for you and your talents but that project didn't go well. You might scroll through the threads, General Discussion, Tutorials, etc, surrounding that conversion project. IMO there were other posts describing problems that could easily have been related to those files.
    Just a thought.......
