The major difference associated with the codes of RS3 and RS4 is the <MCT>, <Catlogs>and <Catlog> are not available.

Using Media Creation Tool for making XML Workable.

The downloaded version of XML file for RS4 is not compatible with media creation tool. We will need to execute some operation to enable it for working. The modified code is provided below and are needed to be replaced with the available set of codes.

The basic change made here is adding some of the missing tags .we will be needed to rename the modified xml file as products.xml and move it inside the cabinet file with .cab extension and then paste the following command.

Makecab products.xml products.cab

Now we have the products.cab that we have created with MediaCreationTool.exe

<xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<MCT>
 <Catalogs>
   <Catalog version="1.1">
     <PublishedMedia id="1998" release="RS4_RTM">
       <Files>
         <File>
           ...
         </File>
       </Files>
       <Languages>
         <Language>
           ...
         </Language>
       </Languages>
       <EULAs>
         <EULA>
           ...
         </EULA>
       </EULAs>
     </PublishedMedia>
   </Catalog>
 </Catalogs>
</MCT>

and then type MediaCreationTool.exe/Selfhost in the command line and proceed to install media.
