    Not completely correct. Win 7 Setup cannot process ESD files, but one can use Win 8/8.x ISO with Win 7 install.esd (afaik Win 7 ESD releases by murphy78 do so).

    i don't understand how to make a esd file for windows 7 with WinNTsetup

    do you mean that you convert it to VHD and then capture it back to ESD?

    WinNTSetup is for WIM/ESD Deployment from Windows PE. To create the ESD use DISM manually or via script, as already suggested by Tito.

    As already mentioned Win 7 Setup cannot work with recovery compressed files (ESD), it needs to use Win 8.1 Setup with that Win 7 ESD.

    Sorry but I'm not an expert...
    I've downloaded ESD2WIM-WIM2ESD-v2, extract in a folder called w7.There are a file ESD2WIM-WIM2ESD.cmd and a folder named DISM. In the same folder i' ve added the file install.wim of windows 7.
    I've lanched the file ESD2WIM-WIM2ESD.cmd how administartor and i've written this:
    C:\w7\install.wim
    I clck number 1
    The script go but after a few minutes i've this error :eek::confused:
    DISM Image Servicing Utility has stopped working
    what is wrong?
    Thanks to all!

    EDIT: I've resolved using a pc with 4 GB ram!During the process is used many ram that my old pc don't have!Strange but true!
    Thank to all!!!!
