Jump Drive with Win 8.1 pro will not install on new ssd

  1. #11


    Recovery drive created on jump drive. What next?

    Do I need to install the ssd in my desktop now?

    Download the .zip file below and follow the How to guide and use Media Creation Tool (Read The guide First)

    Once you Have the ISO created by that program - your gonna double click the ISO to mount it..

    Then follow the Image Prep.txt and run a few commands from Command Prompt (admin)..

    once you have the two .wim files (boot and Install) in your C:\temp directory - your gonna delete everything from within the "sources" folder on the recovery media..

    Copy the wim's from c:temp to the recovery media sources folder..

    and then we need to add two other files to the recovery media's sources folder..

    Depending on how your laptop boots via bios or uefi

    In the configFiles.zip there are two folders one for BIOS Booted PC and one for UEFI booted PC

    Within each folder are the two other files that need to be copied into the recovery media's sources folder.. Depending on your system.

    Then run the recovery media on your laptop with the SSD installed..

    Oh, one note - the xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx product key gets replaced with your windows product key

    I am a litle confused as to where this file is WINPAYLOAD.ESD.DECRYPT. By the way I have windows.iso file in my desktop pc now, if that will help any.

    Show all hidden files - go to username - appdata - local - temp

    Delete all the files in temp and then run the tool

    You will see a folder popup and within that folder you will find the download folder - that tmp file will change to winpayload.esd.decrypt..

    The windows ISO you have does not contain an install.wim in the sources folder - it contains an install.esd.. we can not use that file..

    Actually we are going to setup the recovery media on your desktop and then run the media on your laptop with the SSD installed

    Copy and paste work better..

    In the command windows upper left hand corner - click logo - properties - check quickedit mode

    So where are you at in the process??
