Windows 10: ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File
Also to be sure I tested now with 9860 x64 EN-US ISO created as told in this tutorial, burned to USB, selecting formats: Denmark, keyboard: Danish. No issues.[/QUOTE]
Tried one more time, same thing happend, some files are missing and install abort.
Burned the image to a dvd DL to try this way. Again install aborted with the same error of missing files. The original downloaded .ISO do work:
Windows10TechnicalPreview-x64-EN-US.iso 4.100.497.408 bytes created 01-Oct-2014
Try to create a new ISO, it might be your ISO is somewhat corrupted. I cannot reproduce your issue, having no problems. I have repeated the process several times now, creating a new ISO of build 9860 as told in this tutorial and I cannot get it fail.
I have the above problem inasmuch that I cannot upgrade....I can find all of your info except the deletion of
2.) Delete the file C:\$UPG$PBR.MARKER (system file, UAC asks your permission, click OK to accept deletion), close the Explorer.
How can I find this...I have all hidden files showing...but cannot find this.
Any help would be appreciated.

As the file should be deleted in any case, it's no big deal if it is missing. If the marker file is not there then it does not need to deleted .
Just a fast report:
Thanks Kari for this thread, I tired it and I was able to install Win10TP 9680 from the ISO I created(Clean Install).
It works just fine and I didn't have a single issue, so far. In fact this is the best version yet.
Have a problem...I cannot delete the quoted "C" folders because I don't have administrator permission rights...as I am the only user surely I am the administrator....do pardon my lack of expertise, as without knowing how I have come to a full stop....any tips?
Yep, now it works. A new ISO, but the new ISO is still smaller than the original downloaded (as written earlier). I don't care though as it is now working
Thank you for being patient with me
You do realize that the instructions in post #49 , including the instructions to delete those two folders on C: drive are only for those who have upgraded Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Technical Preview? This should be as is clearly told in post #49. Something in your previous post made me wonder if this is your case.
If you have a clean install of Windows 10 Build 9841 and now failed to upgrade to Build 9860 those instructions do not apply to you.
Anyway, click Continue to accept deletion when Windows UAC (User Access Control) tells you you need to provide administrator rights.
Just one more data point: I did an in-place upgrade of Windows 7 Home Premium to 9841, and an in-place upgrade of 9841 to 9860. I had the Install.wim in c:\RecoveryImage. The ESDtoIso tool had no trouble making an iso file from it.
Great news! Have you tested the ISO, that it works?
