    My PC Upgrade ISO.zip -> download, extract, run cmd as admin
    If the needed MS files are not in windows\system32 the program will copy them there and then proceed to create Upgrade ISO

    -----------------
    ESD-WIM-ISO.zip -> download, extract, copy INSTALL.ESD from > $Windows-BT \ sources <folder
    to ESD-WIM-ISO folder and run cmd as admin > select option 6 to get a standard setup ISO

    I used the command cliff s posted:
    "Oscdimg -bootdata:2#p0,e,bEtfsboot.com#pEF,e,bEfisys.bin -h -m -o -u1 -udfver102 "C:\$Windows.~BT" C:\PC_Upgrade.iso"
    and it made an iso on my hard disk without giving me what version of windows 10 it is!
    It is the Upgrade Version for your PC - thus the name PC-Upgrade
    the new my pc upgrade .zip allows you to Name the PC the upgrade is for..

    I did the other first thing this morning and have been running between 3 forums

    I have had one Upgrade ISO fail do to a long file name

    Pretty much means it downloaded already doesn't it? Just waiting to say when to start the upgrade. Don't forget to image/backup first.
