Windows 10: Using 1511 for fresh install and image

    Using 1511 for fresh install and image

    On 18th October I posted about using a windows 10 image to upgrade several machines and was advised that it was not possible.

    I have just downloaded from Tech Bench (link on this forum) and the file is called Win10_1511_English_x64.

    I thought Microsoft withdrew this version, or is it OK to use. If I can use it then I think my problem with using images may be over.

    Could someone please give me some advice and or opinion. As I don't want to use is and run into updating or other problems.

    This version was temporarily unavailable but has now been restored for general use and you are good to go!
