Very cool. Thanks, Si.

Saving file now. How long to make the ISO? It's 1 am here.

To save it?

Several mins.

Iso is pretty quick. I am using mkisofs. It should be both bios and efi bootable. Not secure boot, obviously.

The ISO it saved is only 34kb. Is there a way to redo it without running the whole script again?

That is odd.

Yes, the folder containing the install files is updated. GRMCULXFRER_EN_DVD or whatever yours is called.

You just need to make an iso of that.

Not sure what happened there. will look at the script to check.

You can use this: bootableiso.zip

put it in the folder and run it as admin.

It is normal to get a warning about file names.

That's weird - our posts are reversed.

See the one above yours.
Is that still doing 34kb?

I think you have the wrong mkisofs.exe. Not sure how that happened. It should be the 336kb mkisofs.

Never mind, use this instead bootiso2.zip



(BTW- you don't seem to have file extensions showing - how do you manage without? )

Copied the ISO files from my bootable flash stick installer since they were somehow missing Setup.

It is making the ISO now. Will this affect the slipstreaming of Updates that was done earlier?

Also this ISO is for Premium but unlocked ei.cfg, so does it matter the folder is labeled for Ultimate as shown in earlier screenshot?

Details, details. I haven't set all folder options on this new install yet.

Extracting newly completed ISO back to stick now.

The updates are slipstreamed into GRMCULXFRER_EN_DVD\souces\install.wim only.

If you leave that as it is - then it will be fine.

If you overwrote install.wim when you extracted the iso files again, then you will just have the original non updated install.wim in there..

The updating cmd is working now - thanks for testing.

I have mentioned to Steve about the superseded updates - so he may remove them for next time.

Doesn't matter what the folder is labelled.
