    Would it better to re-download the Windows 10 pro 2004 ISO?


    Hi there folks,

    Having downloaded the windows 10 pro ISO on on 4th June (size 4,056,256kb) and having two failed installed attempts as outlined here,

    Cant upgrade windows 10 1909 to 2004- fails with a bsod .

    I want to have a go again at installing in the future and just wondering as I would hope some things might be fixed, would it be better to re-download the ISO, when I do decide to try to install again.

    Many thanks once again.

    I doubt the problem you're experiencing in that thread has anything to do with the iso file - except perhaps that it's Win 10, and O/S your PC was never designed for.

    My suggestion: grab a new/spare disk, remove your current system disk, put in the new/spare disk, and see if you can successfully clean install and run Win 10 on that PC.

    To clean install you need ro boot your PC from a Win 10 bootable disk. (MS Media creation tool - Google/see tutorial).

    If that fails, then it's not worth pursuing upgrade problems.

    Where did you get the ISO from?

    Here is a list of Win 10 ISO download locations and tools . . .

    [1] Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool - HeiDoc.
    [2] Windows Download - #1 Windows ISO Download Source.
    [3] TechBench by WZT [v4.1.1].
    [4] UUP Dump.
    [5] Download Universal Windows Downloader - MajorGeeks.
    [6] Download Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool - MajorGeeks.

    Be careful if using options [5] and [6] as people have had problems with downloads from MajorGeeks!

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks a lot for replies, its the official ISO got through the Media Creation Tool.
    I am probably hoping that any fixes might be included in a new ISO released by Microsoft in a few months time rather than using the old ISO again that wouldn't contain these fixes.

    Thanks a lot

    My point remains: can you succeed in getting build 2004 installed on your PC at all.

    If you're not in any hurry definitely wait a few months for MS to fix some of the 2004 bugs. None of them are critical for me but they are annoying, especially the printing problem but 2004 itself runs well for me other than that. A couple months should allow MS time to fix them but I don't know if they will release a new ISP or not as then tend to only do that with Feature Updates which are moving to a once a year cycle if I remember correctly.

    More than likely the current 2004 ISO will remain for quite awhile with monthly CUs fixing any problems. I think I just contradicted myself, oh well.

    Yes, wait 4,5, or even 6 months before you attempt to install 2004

    1909 works perfectly, there is no reason to install 2004 yet.
