Windows 10: UUP to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 Build Upgrade Files

    Chris Wu's New-IsoFile function only allows for a single boot ISO (i.e. Legacy or EFI) for use to boot a VM from the resulting ISO file. If you choose EFI boot, but use something like Rufus to create a USB stick, you can still boot a physical Legacy BIOS PC with it.
    So you can with OSDIMG.

    Code:
    # Set the correct boot argument based on availability of boot apps
    if (Test-Path "$WorkDir\fwfiles\etfsboot.com") {$BOOTDATA="2#p0,e,b`"$WorkDir\fwfiles\etfsboot.com`"#pEF,e,b`"$WorkDir\fwfiles\efisys.bin`""}
    else {$BOOTDATA="1#pEF,e,b`"$WorkDir\fwfiles\efisys.bin`""}
    
    # Make ISO
    $command="$ADK\Deployment Tools\$PEArch\Oscdimg\oscdimg.exe"
    Write-Host "Creating $ISOPath ..."
    &$command  -l:$ISOLabel -h -m -o -u1 -bootdata:$bootdata "$WorkDir\media" "$ISOPath"
    Don't know what is wrong with osdimg apart from the sting of gobblegook you have to put in.

    You may need this as well (although I forget where I copied it from)
    Code:
    # Mac OS BootCamp will look for autorun.inf in order to validate this disk as a Windows Installer CD
    # adding this allows us to start unattended installs using WinPE
    date > $WorkDir\media\autorun.inf

    Nothing wrong with oscdimg, other than having to get a copy of it from somewhere. I was attempting to see if the entire process could be done using only what comes included with Windows.

    I think that there is probably a way to modify the PowerShell function to handle the dual boot like oscdimg does, but I don't know how to do it.

    Well I've given the code.. thing to remember is that .Net (and as result PS ) does not know about SafeArrays...and thus you have to massage it..

    Oscdimg.exe is renamed as Cdimage.exe in both UUPtoISO and ESDtoISO, available to download here on Tenforums:

    Since this script got updated, I have started to archive/compress the whole C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Downolads\[HEX FOLDER] structure just after Windows Update has announced that the system should be rebooted.

    Next step is that I do the ISO and once it has completed I reboot and the update can begin.

    I do all this as a precaution as the scripts are a work in progress and there could be errors. None found so far though. I also do this because I want to store the original update files for my development journeys and testing.

    We have now 3 different types of updates coming in (supported):


    1. ESD
    2. UUP Canonical
    3. UUP Express


    I want to make sure all our scripts does the right thing for each and every update version/style and also future update versions/styles.

    Creating ISO from UUP files for 15063 went smooth. There are still a few cosmetic/minor issue in the creation process that we/I are/am aware of, but they does NOT affect the reliability of using our custom made ISOs as clean install sources. Which is the purpose of these tools, right?

    ESD is still supported? Last 3 posts here say it hasn't been available. Do you think they will come back?

    Hi @Kari,

    As a request, I would like to ask you to add the released version number of the tool in your first post. Good idea?

    1.1) Download and run UUPtoISOSetup.exe (v2.2.1.0):
    Cheers
