    Windows Editions Reconstruction Project

    This is an educational project which aims to recreate internal or hardly available Windows editions from available resources using DISM only.

    Usage
    The install.wim used to create desired edition needs to contain only the prerequisite edition index. This project does not work with any other editions as base. Only English (United States) images are supported.

    Prerequisite editions
    Desired edition Prerequisite edition
    Windows 10 Enterprise GWindows 10 Pro
    Windows 10 StarterWindows 10 Home
    Windows 8.1 CoreConnectedNWindows 8.1 Core
    Windows 7 Starter x64Windows 7 Home Basic x64
    To create desired edition using files provided with this project you need to do the following:
    1. Download all required files from 2nd post in this thread
    2. Extract the main archive of the project to a short path, for example: C:\work
    3. Extract edition files to sxs directory found in the extracted archive (use Extract Here option in your archiver)
    4. Copy all files from reconstructed directory to sxs directory
    5. Extract language pack to lp directory
    6. Extract install.wim from your ISO to the main directory of the extracted archive
    7. Rename extracted install.wim to something other and export a prerequisite index from it to new install.wim
    8. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator and cd to the folder you have extracted the archive to
    9. Run full_build.cmd and let it do its magic
    10. Replace install.wim in your ISO and add EI.CFG from eicfg directory to sources directory in your ISO

    If the build process fails, discard the image that was mounted by the script using
    Code:
    dism /unmount-wim /mountdir:mount /discard
    
    All logs of the the process can be found in the logs directory which is created when starting the build process.

    NOTE: Usage of this project requires at least basic knowledge of DISM for troubleshooting.

    Notice about dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    Because this project reconstructs some manifest files from scratch or uses modified ones to allow successful installation, the dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth may report that "Compontent store is repairable". This can't be fixed because it requires creating new catalog files and signing them with Microsoft keys.

    No links to homebrews allowed. I had no issues, and I ran everything from my downloads folder.
