    wimlib has better compression ratio (although it doesn't recompress install.esd)

    can you open MCT install.wim with 7-zip and post screenshoot? it may have leftovers from boot.wim

    Yeah, MCT don't export (rebuild) new install.wim, it just soft delete first 3 indexes (setup files + boot.wim after creating it), and rename original ESD to install.wim

    You mean to install.esd?

    Yes
    (with Windows 8.1 and first 2 or 3 Windows 10 versions, it was renamed install.wim although it's esd)

    their "point" is to deliver faster process, export / rebuild install.esd takes time and resources :D

    LTSB/C is not available as ESD.

    And LTSB/C is not really lighter on resources either.

    Here all LTSB/C threads are listed;

    Hmm, so which is just the fastest and the lightest ? Would it be 21h1 or IoT then ? I got a lil confused with all the mishmash ...

    This is the ESD thread, only for discussing ESD files, downloads, content and conversion to ISO.

    Maybe start with reading the mentioned threads and the other sticky build threads.
