    Sorry to ask something as simple as this.

    Trying to convert the ESDs from the isos created with the MCT and all Im getting is "There is a problem reading the index architecture".

    As far as I can tell the RSA key is correct in the .cmd (BwIAAA...)

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Also, where is the thread for the tool, Google takes me all over the place and cant seem to narrow it down.

    ;edit; Right first hurdle over, seemed I was using an old version. Now found 6.7 but the new error is "ERROR: Specified file is not original microsoft ESD file. the original file would contain 4 images."

    If you download the ESD directly, you can decrypt/convert it

    but if MCT already created ISO for you, then the ESD is already decrpyted

    as for the last error, it means the ESD file structure has been changed, thus can't be converted to ISO

    Never even thought that they could already be decrypted... :suicide:

    I thought that everything was esd these days but Ive downloaded the other isos and they are already .wim which has saved me a step.

    Appreciate the help, and also the links in your sig ;)
