    I thought first it's not good to just outline the idea without testing it first, but OK here we go. I am in such bad shape today that I leave testing for tomorrow.

    First, this includes more work than just an ESD to ISO conversion, but it should give you build 14986 ISO (and in the future an ISO for each new build).

    Theoretical steps, I repeat that I have not tested this yet but as I really want to have an ISO, I will test it:

    • On a technician PC (in my case a Hyper-V virtual machine), clean install Windows 10 (any previous build)
    • Opt in to Fast ring and let WU download 14986 upgrade, alternatively copy the entire $WINDOWS.~BT folder from another machine to technician machine (remembering that bit version, language and edition must match!)
    • Upgrade, either by clicking Restart now in WU if upgrade was downloaded, or running the setup.exe from $WINDOWS.~BT folder if instead of downloading the upgrade you copied it from another machine
    • Capture image (Windows ADK / ICD) to an install.wim file
    • Use ADK's Deployment and Imaging tools to create a WinPE (will be used as boot.wim)
    • Use ADK's Deployment and Imaging tools to write boot.wim and install.wim

    Sounds complicated, is simple, just a bit more work and time required than what we are used to with ESD files.

    As I said, this is at the moment just a theory.
    Hi Kari,
    Could you elaborate on how to do the following:

    Capture image (Windows ADK / ICD) to an install.wim file
    Use ADK's Deployment and Imaging tools to create a WinPE (will be used as boot.wim)
    Use ADK's Deployment and Imaging tools to write boot.wim and install.wim

    Crap. copied wrong post, that's to re-enable UUP.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsUpdate]
    "SupportsUUP"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Orchestrator]
    "EnableUUPScan"=dword:00000000
    Worked for me.

    PS I want to try Kari's way as well

    Release + Insider Preview Home Build 16179 (VMWare)
       08 Dec 2016 #174

    So, right now, WU downloaded the 14986 build via the UUP method and asking me to restart my computer to upgrade to the latest build. However, I want the esd of this build. I am scared that if I restart my computer, the 14986 bits will disappear and I won't be able to create the esd again.

    I have made the registry changes to get the esd, but after I restart my computer, the 14986 build will be installed. If I check for updates, I don't think I will get the 14986 build through the normal way (esd way).

    What could I do to get the esd now?

    Awesome. KeePass Securer Desktop login option no longer kills explorer.exe in build 14986.

    Hi, Winuser. I notice you get the * between some of your words. I kept getting that with Edge and it's a deal breaker for me. Also, Edge keeps telling me: "To see favorites here, select [the hamburger] then (a star), and drag to the Favorites Bar Folder. Or import from another browser. Import favorites link."*

    I couldn't get rid of that, and the *s keep showing up, so I've been back to Firefox. Looks*to me that Edge has regressed.
    When I first saw the * I thought that it was me. This is a work in progress so anything can happen.

    Hi Kari,
    Could you elaborate on how to do the following:

    Capture image (Windows ADK / ICD) to an install.wim file
    Use ADK's Deployment and Imaging tools to create a WinPE (will be used as boot.wim)
    Use ADK's Deployment and Imaging tools to write boot.wim and install.wim to an ISO file
    First, please notice the words highlighted in above quote, the words I forgot and are missing from my post.

    OK, a quite simplified explanation:

    With Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a new deployment tool called Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (Windows ICD). It is part of Windows Assessment and Development Kit (Windows ADK).

    Deployment and Imaging Tools are also a part of the ADK. It is a set of tools (commands), a set that when run will add special commands to Command Prompt, or rather you use this command add-on in Command Prompt interface.

    Two really important components of Windows install media are boot.wim and install.wim files. To create them and write them to a bootable install media I use Deployment and Imaging Tools. First I need to write a WinPE image on my harddisk:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	image.png 
Views:	18 
Size:	112.0 KB 
ID:	112865

    WinPE is needed to run Windows setup; extremely simplified you could say it's kind of mini operating system that takes care of install media boot and first phase of setup. After first reboot required by setup, WinPE is no longer needed, it giving control to Windows 10.

    OK, when I have WinPE files saved on my machine let's say in WinPE folder on drive E:, and I have my Windows installation files stored on same drive in folder SetupFiles, and I want to create Windows ISO on drive X: with name Build14986x64.iso, I give the following command in Deployment and Imaging Tools (see oscdimg command options):
    Code:
    oscdimg -m -u2 -bE:\WinPE\fwfiles\etfsboot.com E:\SetupFiles X:\Build14986x64.iso

    See @DavidY's ICD video in Ten Forums video thread: Solved Windows 10 instructional videos by Ten Forums members - Page 108 - Windows 10 Forums

    That's it, I have now a Windows install ISO file. At least in theory; as I said, I've had a long and unpleasant day and I am feeling extremely exhausted and sick, I simply cannot start testing this today.

    Regarding 14986 download size, my provider log shows around 6.5GB came down.

    First time in a long time that the download was available the first time I checked. Sat for 15 minutes @ 0% and the again a long delay @ 99%, but all went in just fine. Yes this one took several items from my task bar and mentioned that when asked for opinion of this build. Used the link above to D/L MalwareBytes 3.0... Thought oops chose the wrong one as it said that I had 13 days left on this evaluation. Understand now that it will revert to the free version afterwards?? Edge loads but will not respond to any links etc, completely dead. Think I will wait a couple of days before running cleanmgr and see if anybody is able to find the esd or other file to make a clean copy.
