    @challo1,
    You can download the 2004/20H1 ISO from UUP dump

    steve108, would it be better to install 2004 first and see if windows prompts me to upgrade to 20H1 later?

    2004 and 20H1 are one and the same.

    Microsoft changed the naming convention this time around from the long-standing yymm format (i.e. 1909 = September 2019, 2004 = April 2020), to the yy1st half/2nd half of the year format, so the "official" name of the current version is 20H2 (2020 2nd half).

    OH! Thanks, didn't know that.

    Actually, I really meant to ask - install 2004 first before installing 20H2.

    20H2 is still pretty new and has some issues.

    I would suggest waiting on it for a few weeks.

    You can either stay where you are, upgrade to 2004, or upgrade to 20H2 down the road.

    I would stay with 2004/20H1 for a while unless there's some burning thing you want in 20H2. I'm sticking with 20H1 for now.

    Just so you know, using the Media Creation Tool from the Microsoft site will give you 20H2, not 2004.

    You will need to get the 2004 ISO from either Heidoc or TechBench.
