    I just verified this.

    Started the install of the Techbench 32 bit Windows 10 ISO. This is what I got once I clicked on Start install:

    Attachment 31939

    Attachment 31938
    What is "TechBench" ISO? Google didn't turn up much?

    I lied about the 32 and 64 bit thing sorry you need to download the 32 or 64 bit version.
    It happens to the best of us, no big deal. If you want to be sure you have an official unmodified (in a bad way) ISO go here, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 If you haven't already. I'm getting tired too, lol.

    And if you want to create your own 32bit and 64bit, Home and Pro Windows 10 USB install stick, I figured out how:

    1. Make a dual architecture USB install stick with the Media Creation Tool. I used the Pro version, both 32bit and 64bit. I think Home would work just as well, as long as you make a USB stick with both 32bit and 64bit versions.
    Windows 10

    2. Download both the 32bit and 64bit ISOs from here:
    Tech Bench

    3. On your USB stick, delete everything within the x86 and x64 folders. Do not delete those folders themselves, just everything in them.

    4. Mount the 64bit ISO you downloaded in step #2. Copy all the files within that ISO into the x64 folder that you emptied on the USB stick.

    5. Mount the 32bit ISO you downloaded in step #2. Copy all the files within that ISO into the X86 folder that you emptied on the USB stick.

    That's it! Boot from the USB stick and it will ask you if you want to install 32bit or 64bit. Pick one. Skip entering the product key and it will ask you if you want to install Home or Pro! Also, running setup.exe from the USB inserted in an operating computer seems to want to do the upgrade, but I don't have anything to upgrade to verify it all the way through.

    Nice one!!!

    This is something I've kept meaning to get around to, but never quite got past the 'mulling over' stage. Never imagined it could be that be simple. Thanks for posting!

    I can reclaim that second usb stick now...

    That's the way to go though only one thing is one would have to do this every 4 months since MS isn't doing service packs any longer but from what I understand now its new service release every 4 months

    Only if they offer ISO files with the Service Releases included.

    I can't see how they wouldn't . Look at it this way lets say 4 years from now and there only service releases do you not think people will freak out every time one does a clean installation and has to start from July 29 / 15 ?

    The last time I installed Win 8.1 (plus Office 2010), Windows Update provided more than a gigabyte of updates.

    Maybe Microsoft will do better with 10 in offering up-to-date versions of the .iso, but I wouldn't care to bet on that.

    Well, if this OS is supposedly Microsoft last one and they've removed the service packs, then something else has to replace it in how they keep W10 updated for installations .
