    Have you noticed my post #585 above?
    Sorry Matthew. I did miss your post some how.

    I'm not sure if the script will work in all situations due to if the install.wim/esd file is larger than 4GB in size issue.

    If install.wim/esd is larger than 4 GB, the script will select FS=exFAT.
    If install.wim/esd is smaller than 4 GB, the script will select FS=FAT32.

    Ok. Good. I'll see if I can get it added later today after the Patch Tuesday madness.

    I do hope that you will add that essential warning to it - post #586

    @Brink, I have put option 4 into the above batch script. Users only have to take two steps: (1) select an ISO file and (2) select a USB device as shown below. Would you consider adding it into this tutorial?
    Thank you Matthew. This has now been added as option 5 to the tutorial.

    Hi,

    While I have had Win10 installed in a dual boot setup for many years, I admit that I didn't use it much, preferring Win8.1.

    Anyway, my Win8.1 partition died a short while ago and I haven't been able to identify the cause (PC hard freeze about 5-10 secs after desktop showed). Well time to move to Win10 .... and blow away my Win8.1 partition in the process.

    I D/L'd MediaCreationTool20H2.exe, created a bootable USB, tested that I can boot from the USB, but I'm confused by the version nbr as shown in the 1st post of this thread.

    File Version: 10.0.19041.572
    Product Version: 10.0.19041.572

    Isn't Windows 10 20H2 build: 10.0.19042.xxx?

    I would have expected the File/Product version number to match the Win 10 build number. Hence the confusion.

    If I (re-)install Win10 from the USB I created, will I go directly to 20H2? Or will it install the previous Win10 build and then update to 20H2 via Windows Update?

    TIA

    Those build numbers are correct. IIRC, you will go to 19041.630, then be offered a quick little update if you want to go to 20H2, 19042.630. You may get some .Net updates and a Flash player update, but that's all.

    19041 and 19042 share the same common base code, that may be what's confusing. In essence 20H2 is a tweaked 20H1. 19041 tweaked to 19042. It's ok.

    Hope that helps.

    Yes, 20H2 is a small update you can do if you get the " 20H2 is ready to download and install " message in windows update.

    You will then have OS Build 19042.630

    My name is not "Dell support"
    I suggest that you just delete |Dell Support from the text of the link you've put in this option & in other options.

    Not all computers can boot from exFat. Some can only boot from Fat32. That's why the warning I suggested is required.
