    Windows 10 2004 Media Creation Tool


    Why does the install media created from the Media Creation Tool not include all the editions as the official direct ISO does? It doesn't include Windows 10 Pro for Workstations and a few others.

    That is strange. Windows 10 ISO file downloaded without the MCT contains 4 more versions: Windows 10 Pro Education, Windows 10 Pro Education N, Windows 10 Pro Workstation and Windows 10 Pro Workstation N. I know with the Media Creation Tool, Microsoft is trying to keep the install.esd file under 4 GB so it will still fit in a FAT32 partition, maybe they couldn't do that with the 4 extra editions included.

    Hi Everyone, I downloaded Windows 10 today using the Media Creation Tool, and it did not give me options either. I did read that it does not now, it just picks up from the key in the pc what edition it is when it is installing.

    Always worked that way if you upgrade. You only get options if you clean install.
