    Yep, needs imagex or wimlib-imagex (latter i am still learning to use).
    Code:
    imagex.exe /flags "EnterpriseN" /info "x:\install.wim" 1 "index name" "index description"

    Tip: Use the "create_virtual_editions.cmd" from UUP > ISO by @abbodi1406 it's the easiest and fastest way to create specific/all editions possible.

    note that create_virtual_editions.cmd should be used to create all other editions of Win10 (beside the home & pro editions) starting with at least the 1709 version
    create_virtual_editions.cmd is not needed or may not work for the 1703 version

    No use for supporting unsupported eol editions (1803 and up are supported).
