    Uninformed, but needing help, as 17046 runs well, but consistent Restart (54%) failures Updating to 17063, 17074, 17083, 17093.
    Followed above process and have UUD ISO for 17093. If I allow it to complete, will I lose current Program Files purchased programs and be required to reinstall? Sorry, just not aware exactly what ISO will do ...
    Depends how you use it. If you create a bootable installation drive and boot from it, it will delete everything.

    If you mount iso as a drive and run setup.exe from root, it will upgrade and you can select to keep everything or not as you wish.

    Thank-you! Mount is my intent, and will proceed cautiously .... Actually attempted to run, and process was longtime along before I hesitated and ended. Options to select had not yet appeared.

    Appreciate your help.

    Downloaded 1709 ARM64 Cloud files, ran it through UUPtoISO and it fails to identify the edition/create ISO w/ File Not Found errors. Just heads up.

    From where did you download the UUP files?

    The problem is a bad assumption made on line 301
    HTML Code:
    if /i %arch%==x86 (set _ss=x86) else (set _ss=amd64)
    Here's my hack for now, but this entire codebase could really use a refactor.
    HTML Code:
    if /i %arch%==x86 (set _ss=x86) else (if /i %arch%==arm64 (set _ss=arm64) else (set _ss=amd64))

    OK, tested this by downloading UUP files with UUP Dump (see quote from TF Video thread below), downloading ARM upgrade files. You are right, creating ISO simply fails.

    The tool is based on script made by some MDL members as told in Changelog at the end of the tutorial. I'll need to check if they have an updated script available, and if not edit it by myself and repack a new installer.

    Thanks for pointing this out. For other readers of this thread, it seems that at the moment UUPtoISO tool only works with standard x86 and x64 architectures. Making an arm64 ISO fails.

    New video: UUPDump - Get Windows Insider Fast ring ISO Fast and Easy!



    I've been using UUP Dump Miniserver since the first version was released in early October to get Fast Ring ISO images for those editions and languages I do not have currently installed when new builds have been released. It is a fast and reliable tool which I wholeheartedly recommend.

    This video shows how to download and use UUP Dump Miniserver to get latest build upgrade files downloaded and create an ISO image.

    More of a general question out of curiosity, rather than any real desire, but do you/other guys here think that ARM based PCs are up to the rigour of handling Insider versions, particularly if trying to run it in a virtual machine?

    My point of view, I totally understand if you or any other member do not share this:

    I have never had nor will I in foreseeable future have an ARM device. Yet, if we want to serve our members, the tools we offer should work on all available platforms.

    Windows 10 Insider Preview is offered to ARM devices, too, therefore this tool should work for ARM users.

    I fully admit I have completely overlooked this fact, not tested if the tool works with ARM upgrade files or not.

    Re. Point of View - I do not disagree but of course, if ARM devices were very cheap, and low power demand, I can see a niche market for travellers etc.

    Re. UUPTOISO tool, is it even possible to test it without an actual ARM device. Its not like a 32bit x86 version that can be easily tested in a 32bit vm on a 64bit pc is it?

    You should not kick youself about UUPTOISO not working on ARM devices anyway.

    In the end, you are not paid to maintain it. We are all grateful for you and other originators for creating a valuable tool. Ultimately, we only do it because MS rarely provide them.
