    10122 iso ?

    I just decided to do a clean install. It's time, 'cause I didn't do one since 8xxx, and while updating to 10122 today, it had some problems. Had only a gray screen (no desktop, no nothing). Ran a sfc /scannow, and now I have the desktop and the taskbar, but the taskbar is not working. I'm interested in a clean install on the latest version (10122). But I can't seem to find the iso. A tip ?

    As Fox Mulder used to say, "the truth is out there".

    There are actually several sites that serve the Windows 10 ISO's.*
    * I have my own favorite, where the downloads are quick, easy and free of all ad's, banners or other Mickey Mousing around.
    Most importantly, every file I've downloaded is clean and clear, just like it came from the factory.

    But, why screw around with an ESD, when you can download a real ISO, that you can then burn directly to a DVD, for performing a Clean Install, even to multiple platforms, and then save for future reference.
    I have every OS I've ever used or tested, all the way back to DOS 6.22.
    Ya just never know, when one might come in handy.

    Cheers Mates!

    An ESD file is what gets downloaded when you do the online upgrade. It can be used to make an ISO to do a clean install from. ESD to ISO - Create Bootable ISO from Windows 10 ESD File

    If MS can make the ESD available, why can't they make an ISO available?

    I already have ISO of it but it started download OK, I think it should be alright to download from that site.

    There are ISO's available, they're just a few builds behind. They want us to do upgrade installs so they can see if they actually work or not. My opinion is not. I've had issues with just about every upgrade I've done. Above the, this isn't working yet stuff. Do a clean install and no such issues. Even what's up on MSDN is out of date. To go from Windows 8.1, the way they want you to do it, I had to upgrade online to 10074, then upgrade again to 10122.

    EDIT: I haven't seen an official link to an ESD that actually comes right from Microsoft. They are just an ESD file somebody saved while doing the upgrade, and then uploaded it to a site for everybody else. They say its an official file from Microsoft because it did originate from Microsoft, but the site its hosted on is not Microsoft. Those files could have easily been modified, in a bad way.

    You are right. There are no official MS released ESD files available, just the ones linked in the Predeep article.

    Hmmm, just tried to download either X86 or X64 ESD files and I get:
