The esd that I got after upgrade from Windows 7 home is not in the folder like most of people get it instead its in the C:ESD\source\install.esd.
So my question is that can I use this esd to create a usable Iso of Windows 10 using Ntlite and which version of Windows 10 Iso should I create because after loading the esd on Ntlite two windows 10 version are shown 10 home and Pro.
And If i make the the Iso which product key will I have to enter during the installation because my systems windows 7 home was pre-installed windows.

Thanks

System information
Windows 7 home uprgraded to Windows 10 home

Yes, I suggest you just download the ISO from MS.
You only have to do it once. Let it run overnight for 'instant' completion.

Why? The Win 10 ISO direct from Microsoft WILL work for future use, rather than trying to create something from that esd.


But...you can create an 'iso' of any collection of files. Will it do what you want? Probably not.

So do you suggest that i should download the iso rather creating iso from esd. Actually i am avoiding to download the iso because the time it take. Upgrading from 7 to 10 took me more 6 hours to complete.
