    Hello

    I need to extract a single windows version (Pro) from multiple editions of windows 10.iso, in this case the original iso came with Home and pro x64.

    So i need to extract only the pro version from that iso and create a new one, single, pro version (iso)


    I used MSMG ToolKit, to do that, but creates a BIG file ,4.5GB!!! iso with single version only. The original multiple editions has 3.xGB,

    Im lost here

    Any way to do this??

    Thanks

    Using MSMG toolkit, before you create the ISO, you need to go to option 6, and rebuild wim image. Then create ISO. It will be much smaller.

    Extract the iso.
    Run this in an elevated cmd:
    Code:
    dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:"x:\install.wim" /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:"y:\install.wim" /Compress:max /checkintegrity
    Open the iso with Power/Ultra-iso and replace the install.wim.
    Save.

    To directly export to install.esd (about 800MB smaller) run this command:
    Code:
    dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:"x:\install.wim" /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:"y:\install.esd" /Compress:recovery /checkintegrity

    Or just download the Win 10 Pro VLSC iso.

    Then why not compress to install.esd as in Enthousiast post?
