    I tried to make an ISO file but something got wrong, now I have an folder with name "ESDtoISO\ISOFOLDER" that I can't delete, says that I don't have permission to delete that folder.

    Can anyone help me? I tried in secure mode and doesn't help
    I have added this warning to tutorial:

    warning   Warning
    As Microsoft has changed the upgrade method from ESD based upgrade to a UUP based, the method told in this tutorial does not work anymore with 15xxx and later builds.

    Please see UUP to ISO tutorial for a working method: UUP to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 Build Upgrade Files Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

    To remove ESDtoISO folder and all its contents, open an elevated Command Prompt (tutorial) and enter following command:
    rd /s /q C:\Users\Username\Downloads\ESDtoISO

    Replace C:\Users\Username\Downloads with actual path to your ESDtoISO folder.

    The current ESDtoISO from this tut worked fine. Are you saying differently?
    I am. I tried using the ESD2ISO from the link on page 1 and it resulted in the same results as ESD Decrypter 4 and 6 when using the new multi-edition ESD for build 1709. It only picks up the Education version.

    The multi-release detects the multiple indexes in the ESD file.

    Later,

    Hello,

    Didn't want to open a new thread for this. I have a peculiar issue where I can create an ISO using your tool but it always turns out be the Pro edition when I have Home installed. It's the same with the three versions of the tool (ESDtoISO, esd-decrypter-wimlib-4 & 6) that I've tried so far. I don't see an option to change the index to 'Home' anywhere in the UI. The ESD fIle downloaded via Windows updates is named "15063.0.170710-1358.rs2_release_svc_refresh_CLIENTCombinedSL_RET_x64fre_en-us".

    I also tried the UUPtoISO but it doesn't even recognize the ESD (install.esd). The issue with the Pro ISO is I can't do a clean install when needed because it asks for the Product Id without an option to skip past that. It was the same even with the 1607 version and I had to re-download using the Media Creation Tool then. I have the 1703 version installed btw.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks

    The media creation tool has been updated (as it is every time Microsoft released a full final version), so if you download it again and then create the .ISO it should create the latest version that you can then use.

    That's exactly what I'm trying to avoid doing because I'm on a limited internet quota. It's baffling why Windows Update downloads the wrong version every time or maybe it's a case of ESD tool not being able to detect the right version from the Install.esd file. As in my earlier post it says combined in the file name which probably indicates it does contain the CORE version.

    There's no way I can afford to expend another 5 GB on a re-download any time soon. More over MCT doesn't support download resume like Windows Update. Never had this issue with 1511 and earlier builds.

    I would like to know if there'a a way to get the ESD tool to recognize the CORE build from the existing ESD.

    Try building the .ISO from what you have, then use the following link to verify if the core home product you need is there (it should be):

    Actually, the ESD does have every edition listed as you can see below.

    The Pro ISO outputs as below although I'm a little unsure as to why you straightaway assign the index as 1.

    The operation completed successfully.

    edit: Without the index it only lists Pro. Not sure what's going on here :)
