TS Step "Add Operating System Images" should allow to add esd file
Step "Add Operating System Images" should allow adding install.esd file.
When we extract ISO for Windows 10 version. We can see install.esd instead of install.wim file. This has come as new change by microsoft. Rather than providing wim file, they have started providing esd file which make sense as it reduces size by approximately 30%, the same format we can see for Feature Update as well once downloaded through SCCM Windows 10 Servicing.
I am aware of the fact that we can convert the esd to wim by running command:
dism /export-image /SourceImageFile:install.esd /SourceIndex:1 /DestinationImageFile:install.wim /Compress:max /CheckIntegrity
But this seems like an additional overhead of converting the esd to wim first before using it.
If we can get the solution of supporting esd file extension for adding Operating system Image step, that will be the awesome experience.
