    Media Creation Tool, no "Select language, architecture & edition" page


    When selecting "Upgrade This PC", is there a way to get the "Select language, architecture & edition" screen to show up?

    I went through this process on the computer before, but I selected the wrong edition. The process eventually just stopped (closed the window). When I try to run the tool again, it just goes straight to the "downloading..." part of the process. Thanks for any help.

    I haven't used the tool to directly upgrade a PC. I'm a little surprised that it didn't automatically match the OS you were running the tool from, the first time.

    If you choose to download an ISO or create installation media for a different PC, then you will be able to choose language, bitness, and edition.

    Yeah, I ended up installing from a flash drive.

    When you select the "Upgrade this PC now option" you will not get the choice for language, architecture, or version because it is going to do what you tell it to - "Upgrade this PC now" - that means keep the same language, architecture and version that you had before, just upgrade it to Windows 10.

    When you select "Create installation media for another PC", the MCT will ask you for language, architecture and version because it has know way of knowing what the other PC has on it - or even if it will be an upgrade or not.

    Thanks, it's very possible I lost sight of that. "Upgrades now..." would just close itself during/after downloading, with no clue what to do next.

    Putting the installation media on a USB storage w/the help of Rufus got me where I wanted.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I did the Media Creation Tool for a 64-bit computer, not mine as I did it from Win7, and am burning the DVD from the .iso file now. I went back to get the 32-bit version by running the 32-bit tool and was prevented. According to the message I got it appears one has to be booted to the same version [32-bit or 64-bit] as they want to download. Right now I don't have a 32-bit version of Win10 installed on anything.

    Not true. The first 32 bit 64 bit choice is based on what OS your running the MCT on. If the current OS is 32 bit you select the 32 bit setup.exe. If it's 64 bit you select the 64 bit option. After that you can download a 32 bit or 64 bit ISO. It's an option in the drop down list.

    There was no such choice when I ran the 64-bit version of Media Creation Tool. The 32-bit MCTl gave the message about not working on a 64-bit computer. The only choice I had when downloading the MCT was in which version I wanted to download so I got both.

    Not anymore, it's not. I used the Media Creation Tool from my 64-bit Win 8.1 desktop to download a 32-bit version of Win10 Home a few weeks ago. Then last week, I tried to use it again to get a new ISO -- and it would not let me. Would only let me download 64-bit versions. They've changed the tool.
