    Should you even use November 1511 update at all since it possibly have some issue? I am not using windows 10 November update until I get more of the reason why it was really pulled. I have an image backup with the windows 10 November update . Right now I am using windows 7 & Linux system dual booting.





    Also, if all future updates/upgrades are only going to be via windows updates, I may not use windows 10 at all.

    Think about this, you sell your windows 10 computer to a friend in the year 2020. Your friend wants to do a clean install. He would have to download several 3 to 4 gb for every upgrade or even some updates. I don't know how much that would be, but it would be a lot of data to download This may also apply if you buy a computer at a retail store that just has build 10240 on it.
    Wow, 2020 already but I do agree with your point.....I just like doing clean installs on major updates, such as 1511, seems to be fewer problems on clean vs update....hopefully, MS will rethink this at some point and make it easier to obtain ISO's....

    Of course, that is assuming Microsoft's "It's complicated" is referencing it being a technically complicated reason.

    Or, it could be "complicated" inasmuch as MS wants greater control over distribution methods and timings, and only after making the 10586 iso available did they realize that doing so somehow negatively impacted their ability to control/monitor installs in a way that they believe affects/has potential to affect their bottom line.

    It could also be "complicated" because it might be the case that the alternative authentication options available with the 10586, such as doing a clean install with a Windows 7/8/8.1 key opened the door for pirated versions to upgrade to 10 "authentically." Regardless of the hype before the release, MS has no interest in giving Windows 10 away for free to the world's pirates. Already many have claimed that using the regular upgrade feature from a pirated version of 7/8/8.1 leads to an authenticated 10, but doing a clean install of 10 isn't possible, or is more difficult.... maybe the 10586 iso made it easier...

    It's complicated to be a little bit truthful, without opening the floodgates to the real reasons why MS don't want all and sundry to clean install at the moment, but still have to allow upgrades.

    A similar thing occurred at the end of July too when 10240 went to general availability, and all the activation servers for Insider previews upgrading to 10240 shut down. Also the reason given then was to see how the upgrading from Qualifying OS installations (7 & 8.x) were getting on.

    Seems to me that there is just no control that MS can put in place to stop any old OS COA 7 or otherwise obtained non-slp 8.x key activating an install on any old non-qualifying device with the right edition from the ISO and MCT esds or wims that have been available since 10565.

    There is one way, and one way only to get 10586 at this point, and that is by Edwin in the next post.

    Exactly, the complications not being from any technical error regarding the build or installer that users should worry about but rather being about distribution control or something similar that MS worries about.

    So with the MCT being 10586 can we conclude that they shut down the direct ISO download because some are hacking it to eventually get authentication? Is that possible?

    This is 100% conjecture on my part. When activating Windows 7/8/8.1 with a product key, after a certain number of activations within a certain timeframe the key would get blocked from automatic activation over the internet and it would require a phone call to achieve new activations. I suspect that Microsoft realized that repetitive activation of Windows 10 with the same product key was not being checked for or blocked. I am guessing the same Windows 7/8/8.1 product key could be used to activate an unlimited number of Windows 10 installations.

    Again, 100% speculation, but that would explain the "activation issues" Microsoft has mentioned without them spilling the details about it.

    I guess it is random what version someone gets, then, but the user should be prepared to be disappointed.
