    Funny - may not have responded to you exactly..

    The How To - suggests the Techbench media...

    If you download the Techbench media - the Source should no be corrupt..

    The reason for your POST (not the orginial Post)

    The MCT media is locked by the Mediadata.xml file and will cause errors.. (a file not contained within Techbench ISO)

    I have at least 4 iso's I downloaded from Microsoft direct that will not work as the Source for DISM - the only one that does is the TechBench version.
    This is not completely true. The suggestion is to download the Techbench version and use DISM to apply to install.wim directly. However, you can also use the version download from MCT except it will involve an extra step as follows:
    1. Use the latest version of 7-Zip to extract the content of install.esd. For example: to a folder xxx on the desktop
    2. From Admin command prompt:
      Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\xxx\windows /LimitAccess


    See screen shot, the contents of install.wim and install.esd are exactly the same.

    hmm...

    I assumed they were the same all along so I tried simply COPYING the .esd AND the .wim out, and tried to use them but that didn't work either. Now that you mention EXTRACTING it out, that maybe makes more sense.

    I thought the .esd version was encrypted. Does 7-zip take care of that?

    It's not encrypted. It's just a compressed version of install.wim, smaller file size, faster to download. 7-Zip version 15-12 will read the .esd file as shown from the screen shot.

    Hi guys,

    I suppose the MediaMeta answer file is contained within install.esd since it causes trouble for DISM ?

    TIA,
