    Note   Note
    To address some concerns posted elsewhere on our Ten Forums, please notice that the tool used in this tutorial works with all valid and official ESD files starting from the RTM build 10240, including the latest TH2 Build 10596 version 1511.

    @ Kari:
    Your ESD to ISO (Build 10158 and later) kit still works!

    To keep up with the high standards Ten Forums is known for, the moderators cleaned this thread recently removing some posts, a somewhat heated conversation. An "expert" accused me about causing harm to users (I believe "disfavor" was the word he used) because the tool in this tutorial according to his statement written in bold font "does not work", and I do not understand it.

    When some fellow members jumped in to tell this "expert" that the method and tool work exactly as told in the tutorial, he then in effort to save his face told that at least it does not work in Home edition.

    For this "expert" and other fellow members, here's a raw unedited video I made tonight showing the process in Windows 10 Home RTM Build 10240 which has just downloaded the Build 10586.3 version 1511 upgrade. The video starts when the upgrade has been fully downloaded but the PC has not been restarted yet, and then follows the tutorial to the letter creating the ISO image from the ESD file. Video ends then showing how I mount that ISO image as a virtual DVD, ready to be used for the upgrade or to be burned to DVD or flash drive to be used for a clean install.

    Video has no narration, no music, no titles, its only purpose being to show an unedited view of the whole process. In other words a most boring video. Preparations take the first 3.5 minutes, the ESD to ISO conversion process starts at about 3:33 mark. The conversion takes almost 14 minutes, the ISO being ready at 17:21.



    The same process, edited and narrated can be seen at the beginning of the tutorial. That video is made using the Pro edition but the process is exactly the same in all editions.

    The ESD used in the video is not encrypted and was taken from the $windows~WS folder
    (after the $windows~WS folder was successfully created by the Windows Update)

    would you please test your program on either one of these Multi-Index (Home and Pro) MS encrypted ESD's

    Thank You..

    You can verify Multi-Index Pro/Home with this command ( of course change X to your drive letter)
    Dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:X:\sources\install.esd
    Dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:X:\sources\install.wim

    Isn't it strange that both the procedure and the script told in a tutorial explaining how to convert your ESD downloaded by Windows Update to ISO image in fact do just that, convert your ESD file downloaded by Windows Update to an ISO image?

    Really strange, the procedure does exactly what it is supposed to do. My apologies to fellow members, I am sorry that the method in this tutorial does exactly what it is intended to do.

    Thank You clarifying the intended purpose of your tool...

    As the link to this topic has been dropped onto other topics in regards to ESD to ISO conversion...

    Others have stated the tool does not work.. And the reason is now clear.. It was not intended for their intended purpose..

    I can confirm that this tool does not work with a ESD taken from the ISO downloaded by Microsoft Media Creation Tool.

    I download the ISO containing both x64 and x86 images of the 1511 release and when I try to convert either of the .ESD files contained this error is given:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Capture.PNG 
Views:	40 
Size:	10.0 KB 
ID:	49223

    The tool refered to by @Kyhi in this thread here doesn't work either...

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Capture2.PNG 
Views:	44 
Size:	11.4 KB 
ID:	49231

    So it seems not all esd files are created equal...

    I can of course install windows from this ISO but it is a shame the esd files it contains can't be converted as a wim is required for other tutorials also - for example

    Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Windows 10 Image - Customize in Audit Mode with Sysprep - Windows 10 Forums

    Tech Bench ISOs contain a wim and work fine for these however.

    The esd you are using is not an ESD that contains 4 indexes, thus not compatible for ISO creation...
    Thus the Error message....

    It is not the program - it is the ESD that you tried to use..

    but it is a shame the esd files it contains can't be converted as a wim is required for other tutorials also
    Try this tool to convert esd to wim > http://files.fm/down.php?i=cigfwdk&n...-WIM2ESD-4.zip

    or try via Dism cmd (X being the drive letter to the mounted ISO containing the Install.esd)

    Code:
    Dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:X:\sources\Install.esd /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:C:\Install.wim /CheckIntegrity
    Dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:X:\Sources\Install.esd /SourceIndex:2 /DestinationImageFile:C:\Install.wim /CheckIntegrity
