    I decided to redo the ESD to ISO video, make it a bit easier to follow. The new version:

    I just used your old version to burn 10756 to a disk it worked okay, I got the paths wrong but finally got it.

    1. Did you check the C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources folder, does it have the install.esd file
    That's the esd I use...nobody should be running without setting their folder options to show hidden files, imo.

    & Thanks to you and friends (Murphy, Slave, et al)! Just running .cmd as admin, pointed to the esd directory, and the whole thing finished in < 6 minutes (I didn't actually time it--10576)--& using all 8 threads. too. Very nice!

    Here, the procedure for converting an unencrypted esd file in an iso image using only Windows ADK 10:

    1) md "<Windows_Files_Path>"
    2) md "<iso_Path>"
    3) md "<esd_File_Path>"
    4) move "<esd_File_Name>.esd" "<esd_File_Path>\"
    5) dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:"<esd_File_Path>\<esd_File_Name>.esd"
    6) dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:"<esd_File_Path>\<esd_File_Name>.esd" /Index:1 /ApplyDir:"<Windows_Files_Path>" /CheckIntegrity
    7) dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile
    :"<esd_File_Path>\<esd_File_Name>.esd" /SourceIndex
    :2 /DestinationImageFile
    :"<Windows_Files_Path>\sources\boot.wim" /Compress:max /CheckIntegrity
    8) dism /Export-image /SourceImageFile:"<esd_File_Path>\<esd_File_Name>.esd" /SourceIndex:3 /DestinationImageFile:"<Windows_Files_Path>\sources\boot.wim" /Compress:max /CheckIntegrity
    9) dism /Export-image /SourceImageFile:"<esd_File_Path>\<esd_File_Name>.esd" /SourceIndex:4 /DestinationImageFile:"<Windows_Files_Path>\sources\install.wim" /Compress:max /CheckIntegrity
    10) dism /Export-image /SourceImageFile:"<esd_File_Path>\<esd_File_Name>.esd" /SourceIndex:4 /DestinationImageFile:"<Windows_Files_Path>\sources\install.esd" /Compress:Recovery /CheckIntegrity
    11) oscdimg -o -u2 -udfver102 -l"<Label_Name>" -tmm/dd/yyyy,hh:mm:ss -bootdata:2#p0,e,b"<Windows_Files_Path>\boot\"#pEF,e,b"<Windows_Files_Path>\efi\microsoft\boot\efisys.bin"
                "<Windows_Files_Path>" "<iso_Path>\<iso_Name>.iso"
    12) isoburn /Q <Drive_Letter>: "<iso_Path>\<iso_Name>.iso"

    I have Windows 10.

    When I download a new build from Windows Update, Windows download an ESD encrypted file, it decrypts, it saves in the <Primary_partition_letter>:\$Windows.~BT\sources\install.esd file and then it goes automatically to its installation.

    How do I prevent this automatic installation leaving however the <Primary_partition_letter>:\$Windows.~BT\sources\install.esd decrypted file?
