    Sorry I always use install.wim so I have not seen this.

    Yes, the ISO is generated at my end as well. But running the setup from the generated ISO gives the error "This app can't run on your PC"

    The esd is "17763.107.101029-1455.rs5_release_svc_refresh_clientconsumer_ret_a64fre_en-us_460f5eecbfac5a5d98de8c7644522581096c02e4"

    I see. I used install.wim in the past, but now use install.esd based ISOs because of smaller sized ISOs.

    @abbodi1406 Can you kindly comment on this esd decrypter v 40 issue, please?

    Thank you.

    You are not installing but upgrading, it seems.

    Just to be sure, you ran the setup on a x64 windows and not on a x86 windows install?

    Yes, upgrading.

    Yes, ran it on an x64 machine.

    My bad, this esd is for ARM64 and not x64.

    Just rechecked now :oops:

    This is the x64 one, 17763.107.101029-1455.rs5_release_svc_refresh_CLIENTCONSUMER_RET_x64FRE_en-us.esd

    Why not download the esd's from the download lists at the second post of this thread?
    @abbodi1406 keeps all available ESD files listed there:)

    Thanks, Will do so in the future :)

    Navigating through products.xml without the right keywords can be disastrous :(

    In the process of converting .ESD to .ISO, you have the choice to make AIO or just Home or Pro or Edu. etc. which also effects the size of ISO & install.wim.

    I generally make an AIO as I have to deploy it to my home and work systems seperately. Home systems are pro and education, while work system is enterprise. All are x64.

    I had deployed 1809 to all these systems on Oct 2, And just to upgrade my backup media (from 1809 to 1809 refresh), downloaded the refresh esd and that was when I hit that snag. But glad that it got sorted out. :)

    All sku's except Home (and most likely CSL too) can be upgraded by Pro.

    That's mighty helpful, means I only need to include Pro SKU in the ISO, Even for Education and Enterprise SKUs.

    Iirc, it was @s1ave77 posting it when he found it, with the UUP development.

    Home and CSL can't be upgraded by the Pro index, afaik.

    Pro and the other sku's are all just a license switch from eachother :D

    After @abbodi1406 implying it should technically work, i could indeed confirm this :D.

    Yes, I am just now starting to get familiar with ESD Decrypter but using an outdated version I got from here sometime ago. Now using the latest version (v40) shows all editions expected in the esd file (Pro, Ent, Edu), and same editions show during installation. Thank you abbodi1406 and Enthousiast for clarifying!

    Update:

    ImageX creates the same WIM's if used on single core PC, because it does everything in it's original sequence. If used on multi core PC it creates randomly everything, because multiple files from source WIM are processed simultaneously and added in sequence of being done. If someone comes up with method to make ImageX think that it was run on single core PC or has idea how to tell ImageX to create only single thread, then it will be possible to create ISOs that have very small patches to MVS ISOs.

    DISM also has this problem, but I have not tested the single core PC workaround.

    The test, i did yesterday, was on a quad core and ESD>ISO used 8 threads for the creation.

    I'm talking about Microsoft's ImageX which is retarded. wimlib-imagex creates perfecly identical WIMs on any system.
