TOPIC MOVED TO "HELP" FORUM !

Your ISO is not compatible with WinReducer because it's not a complete ISO, just an update (=upgrade) for your installed operating system. And because esd files are not supported !

i´m sure there was somewhere a tutorial in this forum how to convert an upgrade dvd (install.esd) to an normal dvd (install.wim) which WinReducer supports.

but i cant find it, so heres an tutorial how to do that:

No, it's not possible to configure such files ... At least for the moment, but maybe in the future !

Maybe you should have looked in the Tutorials forum :-)
I wrote 2 guides on how to do this. If you want to do this just for your own PC, then this is the easiest option.
Its what I do for all my installs. the benefit of this is that you can update Windows to the very latest version, install all your favourite software, and capture to a new install.wim and reduce it, and install to your main machine with everything pre-configured...

There is a problem with pre-installing antivirus programs, but other than that, everything should work perfectly.

The reason you get that error is that Microsoft created an install.esd file for Windows8+ for those who bought the upgrade DVD.
In Windows Vista/7 they always provided an install.wim.
Starting with Windows 8, for the upgrade DVD ONLY, Microsoft put in a file called install.esd instead of install.wim.

install.esd is a compressed file that nobody, as yet, has found how to decompress.

So, to be able to use Winreducer on the upgrade DVD, you need to install to a VM and then use my guide to capture the VM once you are finished with configuring the installation.

Hello,

Please, take care about the forum rules v3.0 (LINK) because you reached a "Do not cross" limit ...

Nobody here will answer you about this, so if you want an answer about this, I really encourage you to search other resources on Internet.

Thank you so much for your understanding !

 Very Happy
