    No.

    The MCT ISO and Windows installed using it is at this very moment build 10586.104.
    To avoid any "I know this for sure, its 10586.0 (or any other sub-build)" comments, to check this and be sure instead of posting my thoughts as a fact I just used MCT to create an ISO and installed 1511 using it. The above screenshot is taken first thing after booting to desktop after the installation.




    Which tests?

    Tests done by other respected persons on this forum when the mct said 10586.35 (which was never an issue), and I did one myself. I have not seen any evidence the isos on mS have been updated from 10586.0 but hey maybe MS have changed the rules. It it's all a bit irrelevant anyway as updates are clev enough to only download latest cumulative updates anyway.

    it is not irrelevant; if asked which build and sub-build the MCT gives you today, the answer is 10586.104. I am still wondering what kind of "tests" have told you that it's 10586.0.

    I simply downloaded iso when mct said 10586.35 (not .36) , installed it in a vm with internet off so it could not get updates, and it was version 10586.0.

    I was convinced the .35 sub build on mct was simply a typo, but others persuaded me I was wrong and checked it myself.



    Whether MS have changed things since then, I cannot say.

    Edit: I went to techbench link and it now downloads iso labelled

    1511_1 rather than 1511. Otther forums say this is version 117.

    Not tested it myself.

    What do you recommend ? Let windows update send the upgrade and install it or use MCT? Is there any real advantage to having the ISO other than having it for a clean install?

    More people have had better luck doing the upgrade from a USB flash drive or ISO file from either MCT or Tech Bench than with regular Windows update. Don't know exactly why, but historically that's the way it is.

    I downloaded the latest MSDN ISO listed as (updated Feb 2016). DISM and any other check I did on the files in the ISO came back as 10586.0. New (Updated Feb 2016) Windows 10 Version 1511 ISO's are up on MSDN I installed it on a PC with no Internet connection and winver reported 10586.104. Don't believe everything you see, you may have to actualy install it to verify what build it actually is.

    In the DISM results, what are the Created on and Modified on dates?

    Created on should be the date Microsoft made the .wim or .esd file. Modified on should be the date you downloaded it.

    In my experience Techbench follows MSDN, which are the current full ISO's - MCT are ESD's made from them.
    Probably totally irrelevant but still, there you go.

    The original 10586 ISO was created 10/30/2015 or something like that. A February update to 10586.104 is still not current, but wonder why MS updated it.
