Windows 7: Anyways to convert WIM to ISO

28 Feb 2010   #11

Win Vista and Win 7
 
 

The thing is I formated my C drive and install Win7.
Few months time I did not like it and install back to Vista instead ...
By that time I realised Vista Advance Boot Option went missing.
The stupidest thing was I DID NOT MAKE AN IMAGE.
So I did a setup using DVD that was given to me from DELL.
Not an image file but fresh installation.
Thats the reason why I need to create ISO file from my Factory.WIM file.

Just today managed to put back Vista Advance Boot Option
using How to install The Windows Recovery Environment on your Vista PC
tuts. And still giving me errors.

If only I know how to use that -m option while making an ISO file
Im one step behind ...

Hi,

It's a joliet file limitation.

Create iso's over 4gb using udf. Use the u2 switch instead.

Oscdimg.exe –u2 –b"C:\ whatever\path\to\etfsboot.com" –h "C:\path\to\the files" C:\7.iso

Hope it helps.

Indeed you can order them.

But where's the fun in that?


Would be interesting to make your own.

Please post a screenshot of the entire contents of the recovery partition - so we can see what files/folders are in there.

You may need to unhide Hidden files in Control Panel>Folder Options>View to explore the Recovery Partition.

If it doesn't show up in Explorer, you may need to temporarily give it a drive letter in Disk management by rightclicking on it to Edit Drive letter.

Make a screenshot of the maximized, fully scrolled contents using Snipping Tool in Start Menu.

If you want to work with your recovery partition in a totally safe fashion I would suggest simply imaging the partition with free Macrium Reflect. You can then simply mount the image and work on the contents with total safety. I have done this many times.
Even if you want to work directly on the recovery partition an image of it is good insurance.
