    Kari... Great Tutorial! Works easy and quickly. One question (cause I'm paranoid!!!), is there some way, something to check to make sure I just burned build 9860 other than doing an install? Just a sanity check. Thanks.

    You might could open the iso file with something like WinRAR and have a look at it?

    Charlie, I did pop it open with 7-zip, but I'm not sure where or what to look at! Properties/details of files don't say anything about version #.

    @ tomcat:
    right click on the setup.exe and choose properties then details tab, Product version should read 6.4.9860.0

    Bingo! Thanks, Edwin!

    Can the DVD I burned be used to do a "repair" install (in-place upgrade) like I'm used to on win 7?

    Thanks again, you earned a rep!

    You could but I would suggest a clean install every time, it's probably faster and less problematic. Better yet, take an image backup when you've got the OS tweaked just the way you want it.

    Yes its just like a 7 install. I tried to do upgrade with it but did not have enough space. The partition I was trying to upgrade was 30GB and 17GB of that was used by the 10TP. So I went ahead and did the clean install . Glad I did because the upgrade that I did on my laptop runs slow and is buggie. Good luck Charlie

    Somehow I feel now I need to make this absolutely clear: I did not try to take credits for the idea nor the original esd-decrypter-v3 script. Credits where they belong.

    Collaboration!
    You do great work, someone has to collect the information, organize it, grab snapshots, and create the tutorials.

    I will try this soon, just acquired a 'new' machine and I plan to dual boot Win7 and Win10 to get that real hardware experience I'm not getting with Hyper-V.

    I came across this while looking for something - who knows what I was looking for though.

    EDIT: Updated link above to new 4c version of tool 10/23/14
    -> http://www.chris123nt.com/ESDTool/esd-decrypter-v4c.7z

    I took a cursory look at the two compressed folders - yours has 36 files dated 2014, Chris's has 26 files dated 2014. It was only a quick look.

    Just wanted to let you know after seeing v3 in your post.

    To get all available information about your ISO first mount the ISO then give the following command in elevated command prompt:
    Code:
    dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:X:\sources\install.wim /index:1
    Change the drive letter (highlighted in above command example) accordingly to point to virtual drive where you mounted the ISO.
