    Notice please: When Windows Update has finished downloading the UUP upgrade, the files needed to make the ISO are stored in subfolders of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download.

    These files will be removed when upgrade is done. If you want to make an ISO for future needs, you have to do it before starting the upgrade process itself, after downloading the upgrade files but before clicking Restart now button!

    It's then up to end user to decide if he / she wants to bite the bullet and try his / her luck, upgrade first and then when done check if ISO can still be made from Windows.old

    @Kari, I have made 2. One before Restart [A], and one after update completed using Windows.old. They are identical.

    The thing is, if tutorial clearly states that you can do ISO either before or after the upgrade with no warning given, and then even one member posts that it didn't work after the upgrade, it would clearly be my fault.

    I'd rather warn about the possibility that ISO making might not be possible afterwards. I might change the warning text, for instance saying that "in some circumstances Windows.old no longer contains necessary files to make an ISO; if you prefer to do ISO only after the upgrade be sure to copy UUP folder to a safe location before starting the upgrade".

    Yes, I understood that

    I just wanted to say why I think a warning is important even though you, me and many others still manage to make ISO from Windows.old

    Your experience made me wonder if it would be better not to bluntly warn it's not possible, but formulate warning differently.

    No, Kari, I mean it was at the point where it is making the final .ISO and got stuck at 78% (sat there for over an hour, whereas it took less than 10 min to get to that point from when I first started UUP2ISO) using the original folder prior to update installation.

    I am running it now on the folder in Windows.old to make the .ISO and .WIM, and will capture a screenshot of where it failed before.

    See screenshot - when that point got to 78% it just stalled for over an hour, at which point I decided to kill it and let the update continue:

    This screenshot is from my attempt using the windows.old folder, which did complete successfully.

    Hi,

    For reasons unknown to me amd64 is what Microsoft has chosen to use to specify a 64 bit Windows installation.
    That's because AMD were the first to implement 64 bit extensions for x86 cpus.
    I guess this AMD64 naming is what they are forced to use by the legal department.

    Cheers,
