    That is what I see.
    Windows 10 > multi edition Home and Pro. I see they updated it and added the Single language Edition, that wasn't there last time I ran it.

    You should get all those options even before you start downloading anything:

    That really doesn't mean anything. The install.esd that you have will also have Windows 10 Home in the second index:

    dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:"\\SERVER1\Windows 10_586\x64\sources\install.esd" /index:2

    That link is to the new 10586 MCT. What you get with that is the multi edition ISO. That ISO can install Home or Pro. Thus its just called Windows 10. My MSDN ISO's are the same way. If the PC your doing the clean install on has an OEM embedded key, you won't be prompted to select Home or Pro or enter a key. It's all done automatically based on the key in the BIOS. I did a clean install on my wife's laptop that has an 8.0 Core key and 10 Home was auto installed with no key prompt. Activated with a digital entitlement too. If you originally were running Pro before that, with a digital entitlement, and want Pro do this. Open the system page and click the blue change product key option. Then enter the generic Pro key, VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T. It will upgrade to Pro and reboot. If it was previously activated with a Pro digital entitlement it will activate that way again. If you never had Pro installed and activated before this, it won't. It's what I did on my wife's laptop to get my legal Pro back. It was running 10 Pro upgraded from 8.1 Pro before I did the clean install.
    Thanks, alphanumeric. My wife's laptop was 8.1 Pro upgraded to 10 Pro and then clean installed 10 Pro on it from ISO - now at activated 10240. I think I'm set for her with the ISO burned this morning - if I opt to upgrade (or clean install) to 10586 on hers.

    No 10 Home Single Language option for me? Just 10 and 10 N. I don't need that ISO, not yet anyway. It's one I can't get on MSDN though.

    OK, I changed the language to English UK and got the Home SL option. Selected that and changed it back to English US and it stayed SL. It then let me download an ISO. Not sure what I'm getting though? Will have to wait till it's done to figure that out.

    This link should get you the 10586 MCT that you can then run on any PC you want. http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...eationTool.exe
    I just tried this link and I get 10 which has both home and pro,10 Home Single Language and N 32 & 64 bit versions with all the languages but you need to remove the check mark on Use the recommended options for this PC... The UK selection is different than the USA English

    Since we're talking about upgrades, have a question... I still have 2 Microsoft Surface Pro 2's with 512GB SSD that I believe comes loaded with Windows 8 Pro that is still in their sealed boxes. If you were going to sell these, would you upgrade to Windows 10 first before selling? The only issue is wouldn't the resale value go down and be considered used instead of new once the seal of the box is broken?

    I would leave them as is and suggest one can upgrade if one choose to

    Why not just offer who ever you sell them to, if they wish you to install Windows 10 to current version, if they might have problems doing it themselves?
