Windows 10: ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File
Since yesterday, yes.
Thanx Adam, I thought I was banned or something... LOL.
BTW I did notice some changes to the site... seems that didn't work as planned... maybe they should ask our Admin for some advice...this site is way more stable.
Works perfect, the clean install is much better than the upgrade.
I had similar problem -- upgrade gave me an almost unuseable system. Clean install working fine (some known bugs -- but it is a TEST system isn't it !!). Creating ISO ==>bootable USB (no DVD drives on my system) and wiping old C drive and installing clean gave me a much better system - works fine apart from a couple of well known bugs - liveable with.
The download ESD and the one located your way outlined above both error out. Not sure about the first time as I was in a hurry but the second try gives a "error 13, the data is invalid" IT states that info is in the DISM.log file. Searched that file but it finds no "invalid" or "error 13" text string.
I have used the ESD to ISO on build 9926 so it did work before.
See my earlier post (quoted below), the reason for your error highlighted. The tool in this tutorial is based on older version of DISM and works only with the install.esd file created by the upgrade process on your computer. If you use downloaded ESD files (those with extremely long file name ) you need to use the latest version. The zip file (link in quoted post) includes the binaries to a newer DISM than used in the tool in this tutorial.
Using the new tool (script) with your downloaded ESD file you will have no issues.
I renamed it to "install.esd" before trying but I may have found the problem. Isn't the "DISM" folder supposed to be in the "Recovery" folder?? Mine is in the created ESD folder.
Nope, that where it belongs.

You may have to 'Unblock' the ESD files.
Tried the unblock on the downloaded ESD, same error and that was after downloading the ESDtoISO conversion tool again. I think that I give up for tonight!
