    Hello Guys,
    I created a 1903 ISO from MCT recently, but i found out that it does not include some editions that i need
    (Pro for Workstation) as an example.

    I know i can use some other ISOs to get the editions i need.

    But, is there any way i can add more Windows 10 editions than those that are included in MCT ISO?

    This will be taking some time, converting install.esd to service it and next converting it back to install.esd, but you can use ESD<>WIM v7 for doing it.

    Does it really matter if the end result is a WIM or ESD? and why?

    ESD is more compressed than a WIM file and can't be serviced.

    No need to convert the ESD to WIM as the batch you mentioned asks for an ISO, so i run the batch beside the MCT ISO and it did the job, actually this is the fastest method in this case

    @Enthousiast i copied the esd to to the "esd-decrypter-wimlib-47" folder and the run the script but when i typed my last choice and pressed enter this error showed up and the script quickly closed.

    i tried another esd from Windows 10 ESD repository and this one worked fine

    This is not meant for compressing install.esd to install.wim, this is for ESD>ISO.

    For install.wim<>install.esd you have to use ESD<>WIM v7.
