Anyways to convert WIM to ISO

Hi all. Having problems restoring my Dell 1640 image.
They're using WIM files.
I've already extract all files using 7-zip.
Unfortunately. Theres no setup.exe file in it.
So i wonder.
Is there any posibilities converting *.wim to *.iso.
... Been trying to restore since Feb ... thanks ...

Speaking frankly, I have never faced a situation like you, so in this regard I am also a noob. I think it is better to follow the instructions, but it is not to repeat a step that we have already taken .

Mounting WIM Images from Windows Explorer - Robert McLaws: Windows Vista Edition

Is this from an intact Recovery Partition? Have you tried marking it Active and running it? How about triggering it from boot using key combo to start recovery?

Back up your files first.

Hi Rocker. 1) Yes. ITs from intact Recovery partition.
2) I've already extract all files from *.WIM but no setup.exe
3) You mean using usb. No
Tried pressing F8 went in Vista Advance Boot Option.
But theres' no Repair your computer option.

Mine a Dell studio XPS laptop ... thanks

There should be a combination of keys to press at bootup to Start Recovery from boot. Look on the first boot screen or in you manual.

See if you can run it that way.
