    If you had your files/folders unhidden the install.esd should be in this location: C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources

    It's been there every time I get an update and when I use @Kari tool it works fine.. just like it did with build 14383.

    If you need the ESD let me know.
    I was being too impatient ie looking for install.esd after immediately after download had completed - I assume the install.esd is created from the downloaded iso. After a few minutes file was there.

    Hello.
    I just completed my first attempt to create an ISO from an ESD file.
    I followed the instructions to the letter and then used Rufus 2.9.934 to burn the ISO to a 32GB USB flash drive.
    Then I attempted to boot from that flash drive and it displayed this message...

    Any idea what is going on here? I'm doing this to get ready for the Anniversary Edition.
    Thanks.

    Correction: I did not disable my AV (BitDefender) before proceeding. How much of a difference would this make?

    Are you trying to upgrade or clean install?

    Specifically I'm just trying to get some experience in doing this procedure. I've never made a bootable thumb drive before.
    When the time comes I will probably use it for a clean install.

    You'll only need the bootable drive for a clean install. You can directly upgrade from the desktop with the ISO.
