    Disagree.

    There are systems that don't have blocks.

    Why should the ISO be pulled for those users?

    Doesn't make sense.

    Hi,
    Exactly it's a poor designed block if there was one.
    So there isn't a real block
    Disconnecting from the internet is just good sense when mounting a iso

    If ms were truly blocking 2004 they would remove the media creation tool or only offer 1909 to be created.
    It's only blocked for particular hardware/software combinations. That list of 'blocking issues' may be growing as new issues are discovered, but it's not a blanket 'block' yet. Any machine MS regard as compatible will still see 2004 offered, as I tested yesterday....

    I've just restored the 1909 Macrium image for one of my machines that was offered 2004 on the day it was released, 27th May. It successfully updated to 2004 through Windows Update and has been running 2004 without issue since then.

    Today, after catching up on 1909 updates, Windows Update still says:
    The next version of Windows is available with new features and security improvements.
    When you're ready for the update select "Download and install".

    So it would appear MS haven't entirely pulled the plug, at least not for machines that MS think are compatible. It may well be that the list of such machines is shrinking, but it's not zero yet.
    My PC was ready for 2004 update, but now it isn't anymore. - post #41

    Hi,
    It's just nonsense to even care what ms accesses
    Create a system image to removable hdd
    Create winpe recovery media
    Test winpe media

    Create 2004 iso
    Disconnect from the internet
    Right click setup.exe and run as administrator
    Follow the prompts.
    15-30 minutes later 2004 desktop access for yourself what works and what doesn't on 2004.

    If you don't like it restore system image.
    It's just that easy.

    Why don't you go ahead and give that a shot on a blocked system, and get back to us.

    Hi,
    Refer to first sentence who cares what ms accesses.
    I never even look at ms update pages
    I use windows update mini tool.

    Windows Update MiniTool has nothing to do with installing Windows 2004 on a blocked system.

    I'm saying try it downloading the ISO.

    Your choice...MCT, Update Advisor, Rufus, Heidoc.

    Try installing it on a system that has a block.

    Unplug your network connection...whatever.

    You will care if you get the warning in the middle of the install that the PC isn't ready, so check that first on the Windows Update screen to save that 15-30 minutes later you were talking about.

    It looks something like this -

    Give it a shot and let us know.

    I'll look forward to hearing your results.

    So I just gave you the instructions on how to test your "theory" in post #44.

    Easy enough to do.
