  1. How to obtain Windows 10 ISO without downloading.


    I am using Ubuntu Linux, and would like to use Windows 10 on a virtual machine using Virtualbox. My computer originally had Windows 8.1, which I upgraded to 10. I then installed Ubuntu Linux, so I currently have a dual boot setup. I would like to use Windows 10 on a virtual machine in Ubuntu. Is there any way to obtain the ISO without downloading it? I tried following the instructions on this site:

    How to turn your Windows 10 upgrade files into an ISO disk image | ZDNet

    However running the tool did not work. Is there any other way to obtain it?

    :)

  3. How to obtain windows 10 education iso?

    The following link provides Windows 10 Education, not Windows 10 Pro, which is what you indicated comes preinstalled.

    You should download a copy of Windows 10 Pro using the Media Creation Tool:

    Step 1: How
    to download official Windows 10 ISO files


    Step 2:
    How to Prepare Bootable Install Media for Windows 10 - DVD, USB or SD Card


    Step 3: How to: Perform a clean install of Windows 10

    When you upgraded from a previous version of Windows or receive a new computer preinstalled with Windows 10, what happened is the hardware (your PC) will get a digital entitlement, where a unique signature of the computer will be stored on Microsoft
    Activation Servers. The Windows 7 or Windows 8 genuine license you were previously running will be exchanged for a diagnostics key.

    Anytime you need to reinstall Windows 10 on that machine, just proceed to reinstall Windows 10. It will automatically reactivate.
    You will prompted to enter a product key a couple times through the installation, click I don't have a key and Do this later.

    There is no need to know or get a new key, but if you have issues with Digital Licensing or the Activation Troubleshooter, you can utilize an existing Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 product key
    you already ownto reactivate if necessary. or use the reset function in Windows 10.

    If you continue to experience problems with the download or installation, you should return it to your school and let them restore the factory image.

    How to obtain Windows 10 ISO without downloading.

    In what manner did it not work? Was the install.esd file there in the sources folder (or install.wim)?

    Hi there
    Seems obvious enough to me

    If you got W10 in the first place there had to be an initial download. Now if as people should have a backup of your W10 installation restore that and then use the various esd-->iso mechanisms to create your iso, set that up that iso up as a virtual cd in your VM, boot using that and install your windows VM.

    If you haven't - then you'll just have to download again. Do it overnight if you have a slow Internet connection.

    I'd simply re-boot into your W10 system, download the ms media creation tool and then create Iso --follow the menu instructions.

    Cheers

  6. First off, it was not there in the sources folder. It was in another folder called ESD in the C drive. I do not know how it got there. When I ran the batch script as administrator (with the install.esd in the folder), an error was shown that no appropriate file was given

    I recommend following the tutorial at this link: ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File
    and using the script contained therein to create the iso from the install.esd. Easiest to copy the install.esd file you have into the same folder where the ESDtoISO.cmd file resides.

    How to obtain Windows 10 ISO without downloading.

    You can check what the esd file is for by running in Windows elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt:

    dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:C:\ESD\install.esd

    The path in red will be to the install.esd file you want to check.
