    I would like to compress install.wim from Vista iso to install.esd and use it with Windows 8.1 installer to save space.
    I have compressed already wim file from Vista and put it into 8.1 iso file.
    During stage "Getting files ready for the installation", when it's completed in 85%, it becomes 100% in one second, and after reboot I got this error:
    64044275505186339859.jpg
    It means that Installer cannot continue.
    If there is a solution for this problem? Is it possible to use newer installer with Vista?
