    Hey guys,

    I am abit of a noob at all this so go easy on me !!

    I would like to know if I can convert/extract/rebuild (whatever) just the Win x64 Core edition out of a AIO .iso that I have.

    The .iso has all the Updates upto and inc Dec in it so i though it would be good to use for my fresh install.

    I only have a license for the Core edition, and i'd like to strip out a few features first (mainly metro ui apps). I've used Winreducer8 and/or Microsoft Toolkit in past succesfully for this.

    However neither of these tools will recognise my AIO.iso as it has an "install.esd" file and not and "install.wim"

    Is there any way I can extract only the Core edition of Win 8.1 x64 so I can work on it with either of the above tools ?

    (I know I can just use my original Win 8.1 .iso and intergrate all updates so far, but i thought this way woudl be easier as somebody else has already done it !!!!)
