    Windows 10 Pro IP Build 16299.98 (Branch: RS3 Release)

    I am studying the UUPtoESD.cmd script.

    Why are we doing this at line 177?:

    Code:
    "%wimlib%" update ISOFOLDER\sources\install.wim 1 --command="add 'ISOFOLDER\sources\boot.wim' '\windows\system32\recovery\winre.wim'" 1>nul 2>nul
    when we already have a fresh copy of WinRe in the .esd file as sub-image 2? Can't we just use index 2 instead of copying files from the active system?

    So the DISM error is something that is normal, due to Insider Preview known issues?

    I was trying to figure out what you meant. Thanks for above quoted edit, without it I would still be thinking what am I missing

    BTW geeks, posted this in another tutorial thread just now:

    An example: Making ISO as told in Part One no longer requires Windows being reset which makes the whole process a lot faster and easier.

    To remind you about various options, here's a quote from beginning of tutorial:

    information   Information
    The ISO image made as per instructions in this tutorial will be based on an existing Windows 10 installation. Tutorial shows you three alternative methods to create an ISO image, depending on your needs:

    • Part One: Standard Windows 10 ISO install media
      • An "Out of the box" ISO, as any standard Windows 10 ISO image you can download from Microsoft. Alternative for ESD to ISO and UUP to ISO methods
      • This ISO will be generalized meaning it is hardware independent and can be used to install Windows on any computer capable of running Windows 10, regardless if the machine is a legacy BIOS machine with MBR partitioning, or a UEFI machine with GPT partitioning

    • Part Two: Custom ISO with pre-installed software & pre-set user accounts
      • This option creates a Windows 10 ISO which already contains your preferred user accounts with all their settings, customisations and personalisations, preferred pre-installed software and so on
      • Using this ISO to install Windows is much faster than installing with standard ISO, at the same time making installing your standard software unnecessary as it's already pre-installed
      • Clean install will skip OOBE (Windows Setup) because user accounts and settings already exist
      • As the ISO is not generalized and it contains all existing user accounts and data it should only be used to install Windows on your home computers

    • Part Three: Custom ISO with pre-installed software, no user accounts
      • As in Part Two but a generalized ISO image without any pre-set user accounts, with pre-installed software, desktop, File Explorer and Start customisations
      • All customisations and personalisations will automatically be applied to all new user accounts
      • Clean install will perform a normal OOBE, asking for regional settings, initial user and so on
      • This ISO will be generalized meaning it is hardware independent and can be used to install Windows on any computer capable of running Windows 10, regardless if the machine is a legacy BIOS machine with MBR partitioning, or a UEFI machine with GPT partitioning

    Select Part One, Two or Three to prepare Windows for image capture according to your needs, continue from Part Four to capture Windows install image and create the ISO image.

    ISO images will be bootable on both BIOS / MBR and UEFI / GPT systems.

    Would definitely love to see less errors and DISM pass so I can rule out issues, etc. With that not always giving me errors, I can sleep easier.

    Anyway, sorry, this maybe offtopic that this doesn't really have anything to do with UUP to ISO. So I was hoping if we can continue the talk of DISM errors in another different thread?

    Note   Note
    Notice please:

    This method does not work with build 15055, you can't make ISO from Build 15055 UUP files.

This is from MDL Forums, so would not include any of the edits that Kari has contributed for TenForums.
    Windows 10 ESDs Repository - Page 130
    The above revised utility from abbodi1406 also works with build 15055 UUP files. Tested today with converting both Windows 10 Home and Pro. So if anyone is desperate to create a 15055 ISO from UUP files, there is a way that works.


    To use the current TenForums utility from this thread's Tutorial, you have to first create ESD files from all of the subfolders found in the SoftwareDistribution UUP folder (excluding the Metadata folder). Then you can copy all of the ESD, CAB and XML files for conversion with the utility.

    The below DISM command line (only if run from within a .CMD file) will convert the UUP folders to ESD files, but only if the folder names begin with "amd...". It has to be run from an Administrator Command Prompt in the UUP subfolder.

    Code:
    FOR /D %%a IN (amd*) DO DISM /Capture-Image /Compress:max /ImageFile:%%a.ESD /CaptureDir:%%a /Name:%%a /Description:%%a


    To convert the folders to ESD files right from a Command Prompt, you have to leave out one % for each %%a:
    Code:
    FOR /D %a IN (amd*) DO DISM /Capture-Image /Compress:max /ImageFile:%a.ESD /CaptureDir:%a /Name:%a /Description:%a
    The revised utility (from abbodi1406) does all of this automatically if you simply paste the path to the UUP files when asked.

    For those who have UUP files, but can not convert to ISO. Either do what @DonCuthbert described above or follow THIS POST.

    Both methods does the same, exept the tool I provide is not architecture dependent because it parses the ActionList.xml in order to ESD the correct folders.

    Does all this look correct? Data is from the 7.42GB in Software Distribution/Download. I'm going to use it to update a VM as a test.

    Thanks, TC
