Bare-Metal Recovery
 

If the user needs to replace the hard drive, or completely wipe it, they can use bootable recovery media. Bare-metal recovery performs these processes:

1. The PC boots into Windows RE.

2. Push-button reset identifies the system drive.

3. Push-button reset re-creates and formats each of the partitions specified in the diskpart script.

4. Push-button reset applies the factory image file to the Windows partition.

5. Push-button reset configures Windows RE and the recovery image on the disk.

6. Windows restarts into the OOBE.

There is Shrink the Push-Button for .WIM




Convert the image from .WIM to .ESD

*

Export the image into a separate file:
Copy
 

dism /Export-Image /SourceImageFile:"MyImageFile.wim" /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:"install.esd" /Compress:recovery
The push-button reset feature recognizes the filenames: install.wim, install.esd, and install.swm.

Also i know that here are several forms of ESD files, some are encrypted, others are not.

How to do the opposite process ? :dubbio:

 
 
p.s.
I doubt that the *.ESD (i have here for exam) is in fact some variant of *.WIM.TAR.GPG and encrypted with 2 stage algorithm, or even CipherSaber :D

 

 

:cheers:

For future reference : DISM works with ESD files now, except for mounting everything else works.
