    I cut this post as it was less informative than the new one below. Did not realize this one had posted before it was finished.

    WIM iso's are my preference as you can mount them to repair an image. MS likes to use ESD's as they are a bit smaller size to download. MS ISO's contain multi-versions(home,pro,etc). If downloading CU or any OS(with the actual computer the ISO is for)MS can auto-detect correct edition/architecture. Both of mine are multi-language. You must have the correct download or you will not be able to activate the downloaded OS after installation. I recently downloaded Win 8.1 and Win10(1607) as ISO's from the MS site. They are about 4GB ESD downloads. I then converted them to WIM's with freeware(several are available such at NTlite, ESD-WIM, ESD2WIM-WIM2ESD-v2, etc.). I then used Rufus(freeware) to create bootable USB drives for install/repair of the OS. When using Rufus you need to know which partition scheme(GPT or MBR) your computer/s use. This can be found using Diskpart commands.
