You want to install windows 7 pro 64 bit, and you had downloaded the ISO source from internet, but before install you’re not sure your ISO master is correct with your requirement (32 bit or maybe download Home edition).

Basically, any windows installation has WIM files within, Install.wim contains several sysprepped images of your Windows installation, and we can extract the information from install.wim to get the version of your installation.

Before start, you can burn your ISO to blank CD, mount ISO files so you can open the files inside the ISO or you can use WINRAR to open ISO files and extract install.wim that is located on sources directory.

install-wim

 

Extract install.wim to any place in your available folder, and to getting information from install.wim, use dism command

dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:D:\install.wim /index:1

Here is an example of the output from the command for a Windows 8 Professional ISO

D:\>dism /Get-WimInfo /WimFile:d:\install.wim /index:1
