Can't create ISO - error message

I am running Windows 7 trying to customize Windows 10. When doing "Apply" it stops with an error at the step "Create ISO". Originally it was this error:
EFI - 0x80004003 Boot sector read error, make sure that the original 'Boot' or 'Efi' directory is present.

Google took me to another thread here which suggests that the problem is missing oscdimg.exe. I could not find this file on my system so I installed Windows AIK, and copied oscdimg.exe out of that tool and into my NTLite install directory. Now, NTLite still gives an error at the same step, but it looks like this:
'[1] Incorrect function.', OSCDImg

I'm runing Win7 and I don't have issues, also I don't have oscdimg .exe in NTLite folder, System32 or SysWOW64.

For a long time I've been running 7 x64 and built some 10 ISOs without issues.

The drive could need some maintenance.

OK, I downloaded a fresh ISO (1909) using Microsoft's media creation tool and that error went away but now I get this error instead:

The image has been damaged by an offline servicing failure and no further servicing is allowed.
Check the following:
- Using Windows 7 as a host to integrate Windows 10 cumulative updates, use Windows 8.1 or 10 instead (can be a Virtual Machine)
- Updates page Analysis may contain helpful tips
- Are there any Servicing Stack updates for this image
- Integrating updates for the wrong Windows version, e.g. Windows 10 1511 (10586) updates on Windows 10 RTM (10240) image
- Removed components from this image prior to this integration session

I did not add any updates and it's an unaltered iso straight form Microsoft so none of those things mentioned in the error could be the cause

Right click on the drive where the source image has been extracted/copied, - Properties - Tools (?) - Check (or Scan) Disk.

See below for the results of chkdsk. 0 bad sectors...
After running this I discovered you can go to microsoft's page for the media creation tool with a spoofed useragent indicating Linux and it will let you download the win10 iso directly. Tried it with that but still get the same "offline servicing failure" error

See above the quoted content in bold, if check disk didn't fix it, the drive would need to format or replaceit.
