    I've seen this question before and I've had a question, so I thought I'd piggy-back.

    Will it really make a difference which ISO image is installed? I read a similar question the other day and I offered some information, but I want to be sure I was correct in my thinking.

    Am I correct to assume that regardless of the ISO version, the OS will be updated regardless? Then if that's the case, is there any 'real' reason why one ISO image is preferred over another? (I mean I know it's best to opt for the latest, but I'm referring to a person that installs the older one without knowing)

    Thanks,
    b1rd

    Hello b1rd, :)

    It really only makes a difference if you are doing a repair install since it requires the installation media to be at least the same build, language, and architecture as the current installation.

    Which brings up another question... How frequently is the .iso at Tech Bench updated? Will it include most recent updates? It shows version but not build.

    Hello Tom, :)

    The last part of the version number after "10.0" is the build number from the tutorial.

    How to See what Language, Edition, Build, and Architecture of Windows 10 for a ISO file

    Usually it doesn't take Microsoft too long to update the ISO files after a cumulative update is released.
