[W10 1709] Wim image file to bootable USB


  • I made a wim image with dism from a Windows 10 Home installation. How can I make a bootable usb from it?

    I found some methods by replacing the install.wim on a Windows 10 image, but in 1709 there is no install.wim, but a install.epd.

    Second, my wim is 9 Gbyte so it's to large for a exFat file system.

  • Hi,

    How did you found Windows 10 1709 have not a install.wim?

    Normally we could apply install.wim file to USB flash by referring steps in How to create a bootable Windows 10 USB flash drive

    According to my know, Fat32 have the single file limit (4G) rather than exFat.

  • I made an installation media with the media creator and there was an ESD file in stead of a WIM file. 

    With exFat iI was wrong. The USB is formatted Fat32. As far I can tell from the internet, UEFI can't boot in most cases from an exFat USB.
