    Microsoft Announces New Windows 10 ISOs for Slow Ring


    Microsoft released the latest Windows 10 ISOs in late July, when the company rolled out the RTM version, and despite the fact that the Insider program continues, new builds are only available via Windows Update.

    The builds that Microsoft shipped after RTM are only provided to Windows insiders enrolled in the fast ring, so those who are still part of the slow channel are still on 10240. Usually, Microsoft provides new ISOs when builds reach the slow ring, so it’s easy to see why no ISOs have been released lately.
    But according to Gabe Aul, head of the Windows Insider program, updated ISOs for Windows 10 will be released soon, as the company goes on with its bug fixing efforts to push OS builds to the slow ring.
    “We'll do ISOs with Slow ring builds again. Can clean install as long as the system had a Win10 activation,” Aul says.
    Full activation needed

    As Aul explains, users who want to clean-install with a new ISO need to activate their computers first on builds 10240 and only then proceed. Otherwise, the new OS install won’t be able to activate.

    Thanks, labeeman! Only thing I couldn't parse from that with certainty - if I'm NOT an insider, am I then on the slow ring and like other non-Insider users will have freedom to use new built ISO without having permanent activation impacted? Maybe just a terminolgy question.

    No, I don't think so. My understanding is that both the fast and the slow ring are a part of the insider program. However, provided you have activated Win10, a future ISO release to the public should activate, even on a clean instal, provided your hardware has not changed significantly.

    Very good news, thank you!

    I am on build 10240 (slow ring), using it as my main OS. I'd love a clean installation!

    You can do that by going to

    Windows 10

    and creating your own dvd or usb. Start the computer with the media and clean install to your heart's content. Do NOT enter any product key even if requested. Make the usual system backup first.

    Be careful doing a clean install if you have never done the free upgrade and activated Windows 10. It may not activate, Microsoft changed the rules after the Consumer release.

    Getting started with new Windows 10 Insider Preview builds:

    If you’re already a Windows Insider and have been running Windows 10 Insider Preview builds – there is nothing you need to do. You will automatically be upgraded or you can upgrade your build via Windows Update. If you want to get a Windows 10 Insider Preview build installed on a PC running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you should first upgrade to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer* available to qualified, genuine Windows 7 and 8.1 devices. From there, you can opt in to the Windows Insider Program via Settings app > Update & Security > Advanced options under “Get Insider builds”.

    Yeah, OK. But if they never ever did an upgrade install from Windows 7 or 8.1, and then activated Windows 10. If they do a clean install now, Windows 10 will not activate. That's all I'm saying. If they are running 10240 on slow ring, they are running an insider build, watermark or no watermark. Oh, and I did read the whole thread.
