Hello ComFerek, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Thank you, but I still show it having an install.wim file in the latest Windows 7 ISO file.

I suppose Microsoft is using install.esd in Windows 8+ only.

LOL, I missed the part for Windows 8 instead, but it has an install.wim file as well.

This is from a en_windows_8.1_with_update_x64_dvd_4065090.iso file from MSDN.

I did notice that the ISO from Option One in the link you posted does only have a install.esd file. Odd, that Microsoft would have it for that ISO and not others.

Interesting, where do you have that ISO from?
Mine is from the Media Creation Tool, saved into an ISO and later burnt onto a USB flash drive. I cannot find installation.wim on it.

Doesn't work on W10 install.wim?

I know this should work as I've done it before with a W7 ISO.

7-Zip refuses to open "install.wim" from the W10TP b10041 ISO I created (using Kari's tutorial on TenForums).
I started 7-Zip using the "Run as administrator" option.
