    This ISO is 3.83GB but the one you make from the .esd file is 3.64GB
    Wonder why.

    I always get both the US and UK versions, using UK version mostly but installing US version on one PC just for comparison. But I always need to download 5 different ISO images and also install the Finnish, Swedish and German versions just once to get screenshots and videos from the install and setup dialogs.

    These latter three installs will then after capturing the install process each be removed. For further screenshots in these languages I just install all necessary language packs in my UK English one and can always swap the language if a screenshot is needed. But, for one time installation, I need these extra language versions.

    My point: at the moment my download seems for some reason be not able to use the full speed, getting only around 50 Mbps (5.5 to 6 MBps), half of what I should have and normally get. This means I will sit here for the next hour or two to get my ISO images.

    My understanding is that the official ISO contains both Home and Pro, but when you upgrade with Windows Update, you just get the edition you're running, so it's smaller.

    It looks like it is all 10162 from the page I am downloading from. It appears to be downloading at a good pace so I should have the clean build going here in a couple of minutes.

    The MSDN ISO's for Windows 8.1 are multi edition, Core and Pro, and as far as I know are identical to Retail DVD's. I would expect Windows 10 ISO's to be the same. Capable or installing Home or Pro, depending on what Product key is entered/used.
    Also keep in mind in Windows 8.1, if you install Core, all the files needed to upgrade to Pro through add features are also installed. The Windows 8.1 Core ISO downloaded via the Media Creation Tool is bigger than the 8.1 Pro ISO. That surprises a lot of people. Windows 10 will likely be the same way.

    The early Windows 10 ISO's you downloaded via the Insider page had a PID.txt file with a Pro key in it. On a clean install you got Pro by default and didn't have to enter a key. I've seen it reported that doing an upgrade with that ISO would also get you Pro even if you were running say 8.1 Core. Looking at 10162 I don't see a PID.txt file. Normally with no PID.txt file you would be prompted to enter a key. The key you enter would then determine what version got installed Home or Pro.

    I've done the upgrade online via the Insiders page from 7 Ultimate and got 10 Pro, and 8.1 Core got me 10 HOME. I haven't done a clean install with any of the latest builds. Not yet anyway.

    Yes, thanks to the OP for this information... I would've missed it simply not suspecting such alacrity from Microsoft...! It's probably because of my latest drive--an EVO 850 I'm using for boot--but upgrades are now taking just 15-18 minutes from the first initial reboot that begins the process. That's not really an honest figure anymore, though, because a lot of the upgrade work is done before that, in the "downloading updates" & "preparing to install" phases...which can take far longer. But I'd prefer this method of upgrading to the former, hands down.

    So should I stay on my 8.1 with a reserved copy of 10 or upgrade to 10162?
