    Yes. You need the latest one to get the latest version of Windows 10. If you still have an older Media Creation Tool it will still download the old version. To check which version of the MCT you have right-click on it and select Properties, the file version on the Details tab tells you which one it is. For the Anniversary Update (1607) it should say 14393, the previous version (for 1511) said 10586.
    Thanks a lot,
    My MSMCT is older, and I don't know if it can be updated or I can download another one.

    Could you please reply to my points below:

    Personally I'd use it to create a bootable medium. You could use one of the direct download links, but you'd need to be sure whatever you download is appropriate as regards language.
    Thanks a lot, link that Published by Brink Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums was on 28 Jul 2015. So, you think that Direct Downloads of a Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft are the latest ones.( version 1607)


    2- Those Direct Downloads of a Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft will support 'resume capability'.

    A clean install wipes everything.
    I'd advise deleting partitions you don't need or formatting the disk- which ever is appropriate- first.
    Why do you recommend to delete partitions or formation. No need to do that at all. Even if I needed to do that, then I would delete/format the C partition on which old Windows version 1511 is being installed.

    My existing Windows 10 version 1511 is being installed on C partition, so I will need to do a clean install by using the Windows 10 version 1607 which will be overwritten the windows 10 version 1511. Or I can do upgrade from Windows 10 version 1511 to version 1607. So, I will save in the time of installing and I will keep my programs installed on version 1511

    You clearly don't understand what's involved in a clean install.

    Several partitions are created by a Win 10 install. Not just the one in which your Windows folder etc reside. The best way is to have enough contiguous unallocated space on your disk and direct Win 10 to install there. If you leave the existing partitions in place you will end up with a mess.

    Thanks a lot,
    1- Why have you notreplied to my first point in my last post regarding whether those direct download of Windows 10 are the latest version14393?

    2- Although my exiting version ( of Windows 10 is said up to date via the Widows update, why did Windows 10 version 10586 didn't upgrade itself via the automatic updates to the latest and most secure version of Windows 10(14393)

    3- Windows 10 didn't create any partitions at all. It will only be installed on the partition to be selected.
    I have this disk structure: three partitions: C:\ OS partition, on which was Windows 7. D:\ Data partition, and G:\
    I have imaged the C and D to save full image for Windows 7 and data before proceeding to install a clean installation of Windows 10.
    I booted from the bootable USB on which Windows 10 installation files are. Then, I have selected to do a clean install. Via the Windows installation setup, I was asked to select the partition on which Windows 10 would be installed, then I selected the C partition and I let windows 10 setup formatted, and then the Windows 10 setup installed itself on that C partition.

    You think the only partitions on your drive are the ones with drive letters assigned? Not so, there are also hidden partitions with no drive letter created for the boot process and the recovery environment. Run Disk Management to see them.

    First of all: could you please confirm for me that the direct downloads of Windows 10 in the Brink tutorial have the latest version.

    Secondly: Although my exiting version ( of Windows 10 is said up to date via the Widows update, why did Windows 10 version 10586 didn't upgrade itself via the automatic updates to the latest and most secure version of Windows 10(14393)

    Finally:I know you might mean with Windows create many partitions with When you install Windows 10 or Windows 8/7 on a clean formatted disk, it first creates a partition on the disk at the beginning of the hard disk. This partition is called the System Reserved Partition. Thereafter it use the balance unallocated disk space to create you system drive and install the operating system.
    However, I didn't let Windows 10 or even Windows 7 to create System Reserved Partition since I don't like it. So, I have deleted and formatted the partition C and recreated it with using a third-party disk-patriating software. So, when run Windows setup via the Windows 10 bootable USB, I selected to installed Windows in the partition C So, when the installation completed, there is no System Reserved Partition created. IF YOU, DURING THE WINDOWS SETUP, MANGAGE(DELETE OR FORMATE) THE PARTITON C:\ FOR INSTACNE, ON WHICH WINDOWS 10/7 WOULD BE ISNTALLED, THEN WINDOWS 10 WOULD CREATE SYSTEM RESERVED PARTITION IN ADDTION TO THE PARTITION C ON WHICH WOUDL BE INSTALLED.

    I am sorry to say you're wrong. I didn't allow to System Reserved Partition to be created. So, I am 100% sure that when I installed the Windows 10/7 on my machine, and on the C partition, Windows 10/7 only installed on C partition. The other two partitions(E, F) are not used by Windows 10/7 at all, however, they are used by my own use. (saving my personal data).

    The latest MCT for the 1511 Version is the 10.0.10586.117 which will download the version 10586.164 as ISO file

    I tried updating to Windows anniversary version via the normal Windows update mechanism - after many hours it just hung up. I manually rebooted multiple times until it reverted to Windows 10 version 1511
    2. next tried updating via "learn more" selection on Windows update screen - same result
    3. went to media creation tool via Windows 10 and downloaded the tool and went through the dialog to get and install it. same result = hung computer

    now what?? how come the install does not write a simple log file so both myself and Microsoft can figure out what went wrong??

    OK after reinstalling version 1511 , this time I get a window with an error code 0XC1900101-0x40017 and a link to Microsoft support I went to the link and got to chat with a Microsoft person. They spent 45 minutes cleaning up files, stopping Norton, and doing some other stuff including reloading the media creation tool. Now I am waiting to see if it will install correctly. Good to actually get Microsoft support

    anniversay 1607 version update still fails


    after yet another Microsoft person spent more than an hour on my PC deleting and cleaning some things, running a scan, looking for problem Apps, uninstalled Norton entirely, and downloading the ISO file for version 1607 , the install still failed. Error code 0XC1900101-0X40017 so after 5 failed attempts (two by Microsoft support) I am wanting to just run version 1511 and figuring out how to stop Windows update from trying to install WIndows anniversary (1607) again, which I have no need of.
