    Hi Everyone! My name is lexi and recently I´ve downloaded Windows 10 in Home and Pro versions, both 32 and 64 bits, pristine and untouched versions, directly from microsoft, and I want to build a Win 10 AIO for fresh installation purposes. Windows 10 Home x86 was chosen as the DVD base, after that I copied the install.wim files for each one of the versions in my hard disk partition named E.


    Later, I installed the Windows 10 ADK Kit (just the deployment tools for run dism, imagex and oscdimg) in order to integrate all the four separate .wim files into a single solid .wim file for the DVD. Later, in the cmd administrator rights, i ran the following lines for get the single wim


    Code:
    
    Dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Pro-x32\install.wim /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim /DestinationName:"Windows 10 Pro" /compress:maximum
    
    
    Dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Pro-x64\install.wim /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim /DestinationName:"Windows 10 Pro" /compress:maximum
    
    
    Dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Home-x32\install.wim /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim /DestinationName:"Windows 10 Home" /compress:maximum
    
    
    Dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Home-x64\install.wim /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim /DestinationName:"Windows 10 Home" /compress:maximum
    


    After this process i got surprised because my install.wim is over 4 Gb in size (exactly 4.15 Gb) and obviously this doesnt fit in a standard 4.7 Gb DVD.


    Even I tried using a similar command called imagex with the following synthaxes


    Code:
    Imagex /compress maximum /export E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Pro-x32\install.wim 1 C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim "Windows 10 Pro" 
    
    
    Imagex /compress maximum /export E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Pro-x64\install.wim 1 C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim "Windows 10 Pro 64 bits" 
    
    
    Imagex /compress maximum /export E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Home-x32\install.wim 1 C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim "Windows 10 Home"
    
    
    Imagex /compress maximum /export E:\Windows10Root\Win10-Home-x64\install.wim 1 C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim "Windows 10 Home 64 bits"  
    
    
    
    The result is the same for both processes: an install.wim file with 4.15 Gb in size!!!


    Just in case of doubt i verified if the wim file included all the 4 separated wim with this command line:
    Code:
    
    dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:"C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim"
    


    And i perform a second verification with this similar one:


    Code:
    imagex /info "C:\Windows10Root\Final\sources\install.wim"


    In both cases, the commands told me that each installation has an index number from 1 to 4 in the following order (Windows 10 Home 32 bits = 1, Windows 10 Pro 32 bits = 2, Windows 10 Home 64 bits = 3 and finally the Win 10 Pro 64 bits with 4 as index number)


    Later, i ran this command line for get the iso with udf codification and optimization in size


    Code:
    oscdimg.exe -lWin10-AllInOne -m -o -u2 -bC:\Windows10Root\Final\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Windows10Root\Final C:\WIN10AIO.ISO
    


    Finally after using oscdimg, the created iso image run flawless during test on virtual environments, letting select which of the four operating system versions you want to install.

    Of course you can say this is not a problem for a 8 Gb USB Flash, but I need to make my iso fit into the 4.7 GB DVD. Guys, can u help me to deal with this? I´m tired to do this once and once. What i´m doing bad? How can i compress a little bit more the final install.wim file and indeed, the final Win10 AIO iso?. Thanks in advance.

    4.7 means 4.70 GBs and that's plenty of space for a 4.15 GBs file

    No, it really doesnt fit. Watch this. 4.7 Gb is a theorethical size. Indeed real DVD sizze is around 4.4 Gb, and my file have a weight of 4.6 GB!! physically doesnt fit. Nero Express told me that

    yeah why not use dual layer dvd --- it's what i use for updated / slipstreamed iso's ... they now go beyond 4.7 gigs with all the added M$oft updates.
    An dvd reader can read dual layer (dvd-DL)


    And ditch Nero, use cdburnerxp free and can do bluray too. And no limits too.

    Suppose i'm doing all this well, as you said, this means the increase is due to MS updates added at last hour, so, that is the additional space in the iso dvd.


    Is there a way to remove or clean the final install.wim in order to fit in a standard DVD?

    Try

    1. Export images to install.esd with /Compress:Recovery

    2. Keep the ISO content as

    \boot

    \efi

    \sources\sxs (optional for NETFX3)
    \sources\boot.wim
    \sources\install.esd
    \sources\setup.exe

    \bootmgr

    \bootmgr.efi

    Convert your WIM in ESD
    ESD = WIM in High compression
