    November build 10586 question about install disks(usb or dvd)


    I have made install copies for Windows 10 update version(July 29 release). Does it work for this new November build? If not then how do I get new install copies for build 10586? I am satisfied with the first build.
    Big hassle to keep making install copies every 4 months. HELP!!!!

    Jim Unfortunately most people are satisfied with a long lasting window 7

    Threshold 2 10586 is available to be installed via your Windows Update.

    If you have trouble getting it from Windows Update, you can use the link below to download Media Creation Tool.
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/windows10

    After the Tool is downloaded, run it.
    You will be given 2 choices:
    1. You can select Upgrade this PC now option which will begin installing.
    2. You can select Create installation media for another PC option which will begin downloading the ISO files to your computer.
    After iso is downloaded, you can right click at it > click Mount > click Setup,exe. That will start installation. Activation will be automatic.
    Or,
    You can burn the ISO to a bootable media (DVD or USB) and use it to do a clean install. Activation will also be automatic.

    I thought I had that covered in my first reply. Would you please read it again.

    I used that same web site for build 10240 several months ago. Has it changed to reflect the new November build? This reminds me of win 7 sp1. I only had the original Win 7 without sp1 install disk. I could delete sp1 and then use the install disk I had bought.

    But this is not the same idea. I can't delete the new build because it is not like sp1 in Windows 7. Do you understand?

    Does this mean that every time window 10 has an upgrade(or update?) I have to make a new install disk using that web site: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/windows10 ?

    RE : I used that same web site for build 10240 several months ago. Has it changed to reflect the new November build?
    Yes. The link to media creation tool is for the latest version threshold 2 10586.

    RE : But this is not the same idea. I can't delete the new build because it is not like sp1 in Windows 7. Do you understand?
    No, sorry. You lost me.
    You don't need to "delete" the build. Just install the new build over the one you are using.

    RE : Does this mean that every time window 10 has an upgrade(or update?) I have to make a new install disk using that web site: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/windows10 ?
    Yes, but you don't have to. If you save the ISO file , you can use it to reinstall. But a bootable DVD is the best choice to do a Clean Install.
