If you want to do a clean install of an insider build, just use windows native built in utility to create your install media, namely diskpart.

    You just need to stop that, it is not good for the forums to keep posting something like that only because you do not like to be corrected.

    Windows 10 S is a PRO edition with some features removed for security reasons: You cannot run program executables, batch files and scripts. To assure that, Command Prompt and PowerShell has been removed. Other than these removed features, removed to add a security layer, it is a PRO edition in every sense.

    It has BitLocker. It has Hyper-V fro those users who want to work around Win32 app restrictions, for instance to be able to install Office or another browser on VM instead of host where it is not possible. I set up Hyper-V in W10 S and imported a Hyper-V VM just to get this screenshot:

    It has group policy editor, and so on, all PRO features that are missing from Home edition. And, most of all, check its license: If the machine has an exisitng Windows 10 PRO digital license, Windows 10 S will be automatically activated. If the machine only has a Home digital license, or Education license, Windows 10 S will not be activated based on existing digital license.

    Do you subscribe to Visual Studio Enterprise or Professional (both paid for subscriptions)? If yes, it should be available to you using the link from first post.

    Well, it clearly states that you need a Visual Studio/MSDN subscription. The Cloud subscription that allows you access to Windows 10 S and many other OS releases costs $539/yr

    You are in the same boat as me.

    Because I am a member of Visual Studio Essentials, I get redirected to the downloads section of my.visualstudio.com when pressing the ISO download links.

    Windows 10 x86 14383 Insider Pro and Core 10240

    For those who doubt Kari, the Microsoft Support FAQ for Windows 10 S is available here:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...ndows-10-s-faq

    How does Windows 10 S compare to Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro?Windows 10 S is a specific configuration of Windows 10 Pro and has many of its features, but for security and performance it exclusively runs apps from the Windows Store and uses Microsoft Edge as its default browser. For more details on the differences, see the feature comparison chart.
    The Windows 10 S ISO download, meaning the contained Install.Wim image file, contains all the Windows Pro files, including the all the Desktop Apps, (such as Internet Explorer, MSPaint.exe, Windows Photo Viewer, and Control Panel applets, etc.), Powershell, and the CMD.EXE shell, and even the COMMAND.COM DOS Prompt in the x86 architecture version. I had no difficulty finding a d/l source for this edition in both architectures. Any clues to finding this were in this thread.

    If Windows 10 S proves too limiting, it may readily be upgraded to the full Windows 10 Pro edition by visiting the Windows Store and purchasing an upgrade - no full upgrade download required to unlock the features that will not run on Windows 10 S.

    That is the reason that the ISO filesize is little different to the single edition Pro ISO size - all the files are present, even if not active.

    All I have been trying to say all along, is it isn't "the full" version of Windows 10 Pro. That's it, that's all. It has features locked out that you cannot use without upgrading to "the full Windows 10 Pro". I am of the opinion that it is not 10 Pro. Last time I checked I was entitled to an opinion on a subject? It has for all intents and purposes less functionality that 10 Home does. Home also has all the same files needed to upgrade to Pro. Locked out until you do a change product key.

    It isn't anything else but a strict policy configuration of Windows 10 Professional.

    This is the first paragraph on the MS site:

    What is Windows 10 S?

    Windows 10 S is a specific configuration of Windows 10 Pro that offers a familiar, productive Windows experience that’s streamlined for security and performance. By exclusively using apps in the Windows Store and ensuring that you browse safely with Microsoft Edge, Windows 10 S keeps you running fast and secure day in and day out. *
