  • Hi,

     

    What’ your meaning of “nothing happens”?

     

    Right-click your DVD drive and click Explorer. And then double-click setup.exe. What’s the symptom?

     

    Can you boot from the disk?

     

    Where did you download the iso file? Please let me know the URL of the site.

     

    I suggest downloading the iso file again using a downloading tool such as Flashget to check the result.

     

    To open install.wim, we should use the ImageX tool which is included in Windows Automatic Installation Kit.

     

    As this is a non-technical issue, I suggest contacting Microsoft Customer Service for direct assistance.
