    If I wanted to use a DL-DVD, I wouldn't have asked for help in the first place...

    Excelent idea! I didn't notice the HUGE reduction in size from install.wim to install.esd!
    x64 ISOs: 3 357 833 760 bytes -> 2 627 339 554 bytes
    x86 ISOs: 2 457 391 377 bytes -> 2 013 591 576 bytes

    Thanks for the idea, I just tried to do that. Just downloaded ESD2WIM-WIM2EDS-v2.7z, ran batch as admin, pasted the path to the install.wim, selected option 2 (export all indexes), but Dism Image Servicing Utility stops working at 2% of the process. I'll try do analyze the batch and try to do it manually.

    EDIT: ok, problem was not enough free memory, closed a few programs and now it claims not enough free hdd space, I have 77GB free on C: and 57GB free on D:, and I'm running ESD2WIM-WIM2EDS from D:. Does it expand all the content of the WIM and then recompresses it to ESD? That would explain why 57GB were not enough...

    Thanks, running v4 now! Memory and/or hdd space seems no longer an issue, only issue now is CPU speed, my C2D is wayyyyyy slow for this kind of tasks... When it's finished I'll make an ISO to test on VirtualBox, if it works then I'll edit the 1st post with the final solution: WinAIO Maker v1.3 + ESD2WIM-WIM2ESD v4!

    Code:
    dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:X:\install.wim /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:X:\install.esd /Compress:recovery
    Do this for each SourceIndex, 1 -- 2 -- 3 etc. X is the drive where install.wim is.

    I was trying WinAIO Maker 1.3 last night and after I would pick the wims (from MSDN multi-edition th2s) and then save everything it would bring up this box that all is done and the box wouldn't go away. I couldn't go any further, make an .iso or anything. Where did you get the version you have or could you upload it somewhere or what am I doing wrong? I'm not concerned about the .iso size as you are. Actually I already downloaded the 'both' option from the Media Creation Tool and converted the .esds to .wims for compatibility. It works great (at 6.57 GB), but I just wanted to see if I could make one myself. There haven't been any guides for this like there were for 7 and 8.

    Just added an untested solution to the 1st post, it includes links to all the programs I used. Try with those, maybe it will work for you, or maybe the v1.3 is simply not compatible with the ISOs you're trying to modify. The OS I used in the process is Windows 10 Pro x64.

    I tried installing Windows 10 Pro x64 but forgot that the CPU lacks a required instruction. Since it boots with the x86 files, the 1st part of the install worked fine, it created the partitions and copied the files, but after reboot it got stuck with the Windows logo and no spinning dots. Just tried Windows 10 Core/Pro x86 and both installed correctly, now I just need to try it on a x64 compatible computer...

    Thanks a lot but not having any luck at this point. First, I still get that 'all actions complete' after saving inside the program. So I used task manager to close it and when I opened it again all 4 versions were still listed. I didn't shrink the wins or change the descriptions but just said create .iso. After mounting it could get any of the setups to run inside Windows. Didn't try making a disk or USB to see if it would boot.

    The program's a little old. It'd be great if Josh Cell and Alphawaves could update it to make sure it's compatible with 10 or if ambidav could make a new guide using ADK, although I certainly don't expect that they should unless they are motivated on their own to do so. Let us know if you come up with a solution that works.

    If the MCT iso (clean 10586 Home and Pro) in install.esd format is bigger than dvd5 than the updated versions of the iso will be at least as big as the original, created by MCT. You can do a /startcomponentcleanup with or without /resetbase and delete all unneeded files from the iso (it won't be able to do upgrades, only clean installs) to slim down the iso.

    I compared original Windows 7 x64/x86 ISOs against WinAIO Maker ISO to find out exactly what files are modified. Those modifications are not being correctly applied to Windows 10 AIO, so I updated the 1st post with the exact same modifications done manually. Boot menu still doesn't show an option to select "x64 Recovery Mode", though. Gotta get my hands on a x64 capable computer (other than my own) so I can test it out.

    Why waste your time with iso's? They are only good for unpacking to a bootable usb key.
    Not many notebooks/pc's even have optical drives anymore.
    Even a USB2 key will install faster than from DVD...

    "Does anyone know of any method to create an ISO below 4.37GB? Otherwise I'll just burn 2 DVDs for those rare cases when computers/laptops fail to boot from USB." <- THAT's why.

    I have a USB flash drive that contains XP SP3 Home/Pro (Single ISO), Vista SP2 x86/x64 (untouched ISOs), 7 SP1 x86/x64 (untouched ISOs with ei.cfg patched), 8.1 with Update x86/x64 (untouched ISOs), 10 b1511 x86/x64 (untouched ISOs) and some other ISOs for diagnostic/recovery. I only use DVDs when for some reason the flash drive doesn't boot or the computer/laptop isn't able to boot from USB.

    :eek: :g:
    Well, for instance, I save every ISO file to a SSD drive into an iodd-2541 device:
    http[://]iodd.kr/wordpress/product/iodd-2541

    As a technician, I found it very useful and convenient.
    Far better and faster than any USB key, and I can save, use and boot them all to/from the same place. :rolleyes:

    Not sure I understand what you mean. If I use this Windows 10 DVD with an install.esd instead of install.wim, and start the installation process from setup.exe/setup64.exe, upgrade from a running Windows 7 SP1 / 8.x to Windows 10 will not be possible? If that's the case, I can always upgrade from the original ISO (with the install.wim) by extracting it to the hdd and after the upgrade completes, do a clean install from the DVD with the install.esd.
