Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Enable "Show Hidden Files"
FIRST ENABLE SHOW HIDDEN FILES IN YOUR EXPLORER.
Windows 8 procedure:
Access the Control Panel. ...
Type "folder" into the search bar and select Show hidden files and folders.
Then, click on the View tab at the top of the window.
Under Advanced Settings, locate "Hidden files and folders." ...
Click on OK.
Hidden files will now be shown when performing searches in Windows Explorer.
Windows 10 procedure:
Open Folder Options
by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.
Step 2: Locate Update Files & Build the Image.
When you initiated the update procedure, ii downloaded the Windows 10 files, "somewhere". That "somewhere" is
Strange name huh ? Now enter that folder and locate a folder called
Inside there is a single file that we need it is called [see image 1]
Now we need to download a nice little program called ESD-Decrypter, you can get it from here or from the makers one drive (http://1drv.ms/1HeQkW0)
Extract it with 7-Zip (http://www.7-zip.org/).
Now copy install.esd to the extracted folder. [see image 3]
Now go to that folder and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR the file called decrypt.cmd
Choose option 1 (Create Full ISO with Standard install.wim)
Done [see image 3]
When installing, it may be necessary to use a CD-KEY (for the Insider Preview version it was necessary).
If you need here are the public keys they provided (those are not pirated keys or something like that)
Windows 10 Home Insider Preview build 10158 product key:
Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview build 10158 product key:
Windows 10 Enterprise Insider Preview build 10158 product key:
Note that these keys should work with later builds as well.
I MADE THE ISO WITH THIS PROCEDURE, I BOOTED THE DVD AND IT WORKS, BUT I DID NOT STARTED THE INSTALLATION FROM IT (I JUST GOT WINDOWS 10 ON MY PC TODAY) THAT'S WHY I DON'T KNOW IF IT THE KEYS ARE STILL REQUIRED. I WILL TEST IT SOON AND UPDATE THE TUTORIAL.
