Windows 7: Guide on how to convert VHD to ISO

Guide on how to convert VHD to ISO

Convert VHD to ISO

With so many new builds being available first in VHD format, (my 7229 and 7260 builds were both like this), I found a good guild to convert them to bootable ISO. Hope this helps>

- An ISO of any Windows 7100 build (If the VHD is x86, the ISO has to be x86 also. Same thing goes for x64.)
- GImageX
- UltraISO

1. Start > Right-click on My Computer > Manage > Disk Management
3. Click on More Actions and select Attach VHD, and locate your VHD
4. Open up GImageX
5. For source, select the drive which the VHD was mounted to
6. For destination, make the file name install.wim and choose where it should be placed
7. For SKU Flag, choose Ultimate
8. For the description information, just customize it however you like
9. Once done, click the Create button
10. Once the conversion is complete, open UltraISO
11. Open the ISO with UltraISO
12. Inside the ISO, there will be a sources folder, so just remove the install.wim file and drag the install.wim file that you made with GImageX into the sources folder. (In other words, you are just replacing the install.wim file that's on the ISO, with the one that you made.)
13. Finally, save it as an ISO
14. Burn the ISO using UltraISO or mount the ISO!
