    I'm not an Insider so do not dabble with these builds, but Wzor (see twitter) has posted ESD's and Adgard has a decrypter - which is cmd based (and thus safe to check what it does)... anyone tried this?
    Adgard's decrypter does not work with 15002 ESD, although it works perfectly with WZor's files.

    I honestly believe ESD to ISO days are gone, as it is now possible to make an ISO from half smaller UUP upgrade. Why bother, double so big download and eternal hunt for tool versus a simple method to write ISO from UUP files.

    New tutorial, UUP to ISO will be posted later today. In the mean time, for those stuck with an unusable ESD file, NTLite does the job although excruciating slowly, generating about one GB bigger ISO images than ESD to ISO method or new UUP to ISO method. Anyway, the ISO is fully functional.

    Download NTLite, the free version: NTLite

    Run NTLite after you have downloaded the upgrade but before you have restarted PC to upgrade. Select Add > Image file:
    Click image for larger version.

    That's it. Wait patiently, ISO will be created. This after NTLite had been making my ISO for over 3 minutes:

    Honestly, I totally lost my interest as soon as I saw how easy it is to make ISO from UUP upgrade. There's no point anymore to get the ESD file, bigger download to get the same ISO.

    Well it seems to be working ok. I still feel we need a good solution for install.esd as for some reason the uup upgrades keep failing for me but the install.esd method still works fine.

    I got a folder "Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\a526e5506b3a31a0423f926bd902345e". Contains some split esd files and cabs.

    After install, it is in windows.old

    Can extract "P:\Windows.old\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\a526e5506b3a31a0423f926bd902345e\Professional_ en-us.esd" with 7-zip. Havent tested with wimlib yet, but that may also work.

    It wasn't a small download. 3.2gb - got bored and shut down. Then after restart - another 2.6gb.

    As far as I know that would be the ESD of the previous build.

    Anyway, thanks SIW for making this possible:

    It is the newly downloaded build. The entire software distribution folder is in windows.old

    Windows.old\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download\a526e5506b3a31a0423f926bd902345e

    For those who already installed and wish to make an iso, you may find the needed files in Windows.old ( not sure if they are kept if disk space is short).
