    So I installed KB4562830 which took the PC from 10941.450 to 19041.450. It's now at 10942.508. I'm not part of the Insider Preview program and don't want to be. If I had to do an in-place-upgrade, where would the best trusted place to get the ISO and if I understand correctly it would have to be a 10942 ISO.
    Hopefully I won't have to resort to the ISO because I have a full MR backup image, but just want to learn about the ISO options.
    Thanks

    Hello,

    You can often download an ISO for Windows 10 Insider builds using option 4 in the tutorial below. 19042 is available for your situation.

    UUP Dump is a good alternative to get an ISO from Windows 10 Insider builds when not available above.

    Hello @Brink and thanks for the quick reply. So I am wondering if I were to use the 10942 ISO to do a repair-upgrade would I then be basically in the Insider Preview program program and potentially be non-release Windows? Will the release version become 10942 soon? Or should I just uninstall the KB and stick to being on 10942 and play it safe because I'm feeling confused at the moment .
    Also let's say I'm on 10941.508, then if I download the Windows 10 2004 Media Creation Tool, it probably won't be 10941.508 - so how would that affect the in-place-upgrade outcome?
    Thanks for the help.

    Build 19042.508 is currently for Windows Insider Beta below.

    Windows 10 Insider Preview Beta Channel Build 19042.508 (20H2) Sept. 8


    If the ISO doesn't match your current installation, you will know when you get to step 13 in the tutorial when you do not have the Keep personal files and apps option available meaning you will lose them without this option checked. You can cancel the repair install at this step if needed by closing the Windows Setup window.

    Okay, so when 20H2 is becomes the release version, do you know if it will be numbered 10942 or might that change?
    I'm just wondering if I'll be back in sync with the Release Channel when 20H2 becomes released and I apply the Windows Update that shows up on my PC for it in the next month or so.
    Thanks much.

    If you select to stop getting Insider builds, you will be updated to the latest public release channel when available.

    The build number may or may not change for the public release, so can't guarantee it will be the same.

    I never signed up for the Insider Preview - just installed the 20H2 Enablement KB posted on the interwebs.

    The enablement package is usually for the beta insider program.

    What does it show in Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program to see if indicates you may have an Insider build or not?
