    Want to download ISO of version BEFORE anniversary edition


    Anybody know where I can download the previous version? I d/l the anniversary and I don't like it. I've been searching for an hour and can't find any site (Msft or otherwise) that offers an earlier version to download. I want to do a clean install.

    Thanks.

    Going to get stuck with it sooner or later. What were your dislikes?

    The changes in the Program menu layout and the Start Screen Layout. And I know, I'll eventually have to go with it, but I don't wanna do so until I have to.
    Thanks for the info Porthos.

    OK, I just took a look at the site... Have you used it, or know anybody who has?

    Yes, Microsoft Windows and Office ISO Download Tool works by going to an official Microsoft download repository site, and gathering a set of links to Microsoft official downloads - You will need the Windows 10 insider preview set - and select the edition for build 14372 client insider preview if that's the one you need , then confirm, next choose the language and confirm and then finally the 32-bit or 64-bit version - then the 3 to 4GB download from Microsoft begins.
    The install.wim contains both pro and core images. The program also allows you to copy the site address for the download to the clipboard, which you could run separately in a browser if you are distrustful in any way.

    Yeah, I spent a lot of time looking at the site. It's a really good idea to have it all put together like that. I had no clue it was there, I've always just gone to Msft normal d/l site. Whoever thought of this put some work into it.

    Rolling of eyes - loads of improvements and you use trivial issues to not upgrade.

    Use a 3rd party start menu if that's the only problem... there are far more significant functional problems people are experiencing, so I'd certainly understand anyone delaying the upgrade for some months while MS fixes things on those grounds (some editions allow you to defer upgrades).
