How to Create Windows 10 ISO / DVD
« on: July 30, 2015, 02:15:00 AM »

Windows 10 has started rolling out around the world today, and many of you are undoubtedly eagerly waiting to give it a try, especially with Microsoft offering it as a free upgrade for all devices running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

The latest operating system iteration from the Redmond-based company already looks like a promising upgrade for all eligible users, and Microsoft has ensured that anyone can download and install it without any issue with the release of a free upgrade utility, the Media Creation Tool.

Grabbing Windows 10 with the help of this application is as easy as can be, given that it does all the necessary work. However, you might find it a bit slow even on fast Internet connections, not to mention that you won't be able to download multiple images at the same time.

Thus, some of you will certainly want to take the matter into your own hands, download Windows 10 directly from the Internet, and install it at your own pace. The only issue is the fact that the OS comes in the form of ESD files, and operating them might not be as easy as one would expect.

Windows 10 RTM is up for grabs now

Available as a pre-release for almost a year now, Windows 10 can be downloaded from Softpedia at higher speeds than those offered by the Media Creation Tool if a tool such as Internet Download Manager is used (the ESD files are downloaded directly from Microsoft).

Microsoft has already revealed that Windows 10 will be available in multiple editions, each targeted at a particular market segment, and some of you might want to try more than a single version before deciding which would be suitable for your needs.

For everyday consumers, Microsoft announced Windows 10 Home, which would be running on desktops, laptops, and 2-in-1 computers. Next, there's Windows 10 Pro, designed mainly for small businesses, followed by Windows 10 Enterprise, which should be suitable for medium and large companies.

Download the ESDs and convert them to ISO

The Media Creation Tool won't allow you to do so, but you can download the Windows 10 ESD files separately, grab ESD Decryptor to convert them to ISO files, and then burn them to DVDs with the help of a disc burning program. You can also use Rufus to put the ISO on a USB drive.

To use ESD Decryptor, you only need to extract the content of the downloaded archive to a new folder, copy the ESD file to this folder, and then right-click on Decrypt.cmd to Run as Administrator. After that, you only need to select the first option offered by the tool to create a full ISO with the install.win file in it (which is essential for installing Windows 10).

The entire conversion process should not take long, though it depends on your system's performance. The newly created ISO is saved automatically in the same folder where you have extracted the content of the ESD Decryptor archive, and you can find it there when looking to burn it to a DVD.
