    I think you can export straight from esd to wim now. I don't know when they made the change, but I seem to remember having to go through creating a junk index to do it before.
    Command is something like:
    Code:
    dism /export-image /sourceimagefile:X:\sources\install.esd /sourceindex:4 /destinationimagefile:c:\temp\install.wim /compress:max /checkintegrity

    Good you mention this, i still use wimlib-imagex to directly convert ESD to WIM

    Need to adapt to new features :good3:.

    There is no such thing as 'a stupid question'. To question things is what drives us to learn and aren't we all but ignorants?
    If we do not ask we'll never know the answers and we'll never exchange knowledge, learn about the possibilities, laws and facts of our universe.

    Cheers. :tea:
