    I can do the job, let me some time to download the wmc esd and create the patch. Hoping the size won't be too big. :)

    To my knowledge WIM to ESD conversion is a one-way ... i'm wrong here?

    Well... there's no official method for it, but you can apply the image to a vhd and re-capture it, like we do in this script.

    For sure, but let's try if smartversion is capable of creating an svf file.
    For the moment it looks like smartversion have difficulties to manage this, pc is working since 1h. :p

    PS: @Tito the patch is around 2.3GB, so sorry, I won't upload this as it will take me around 8 to 10 hours with my upload speed (125ko/s)

    @coleoptere2007

    Gotcha! I bet it happens due to the obfuscated encryption. Can you please try to make the same after decrypting the ESDs using qad's tool??

    Yes, WIM 2 ESD is one command only (export /recovery)
    But ESD 2 WIM needs applying then re-capturing :D

    Ill give it a go, but even if the file sizes where exactly the same, the binary guts inside each file could be so different, that it would basically make another file same size as the source for just the differences. Sounds like what is going on pretty much.

    Anyway, DLing now, will have a looksee too.:chef:

    It's kind of does :D

    ESD compression format packs many streams ("files") together into a single compressed resource, it's like a solid wim
    so i think even if you created different 2 esd files that contains exact same image (index), the patch size will be as large as target file size

    I know but there is no significant differences between CSL & ProWMC SKUs.

    Now that makes sense.
