Windows 10: ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File
Regarding the new build coming later today, this video is in my own opinion not good enough to be posted in our Windows 10 Videos by the Ten Forum Members thread but might still be useful for those wanting to grab the ESD file before Windows starts upgrading, in order to create an ISO image and do a clean install.
Creating ISO for build 10130 now. Thank you Kari.
You are welcome .
Kari, I didn't have to jump in before it started installing cause I got the message that a restart was required and would I like to delay it. I'm set on Automatic in WU. I just waited for that message, grabbed the install.esd, and let it go. There seemed to be a natural pause there to allow me time to copy it. Did I get lucky? Was the same way with 10122.
That seems to be the case when upgrading from 10122 to 10130, at least I got the same; WU went through the download, then "preparing for the upgrade" but then stopped to wait the reboot. When upgrading from 10074 to 10122 the upgrade started straight away and you had to hurry to get the ESD because it disappeared when the upgrade process started automatically.
No b10122 ESD?
|Did the upgrade process change after b10074?
All of my previous builds have had an ESD file.
My b10122 does not have an ESD file.
Do I need to copy the "install.esd.bak", rename it and then create the ISO?
There is something weird about the creation & modified dates of that file.
Is that actually a backup of b10074 ESD?
The date of that .bak file (May 2nd) suggests it is the 10074. Other than that, I really have no idea where your ESD file has gone?
