    ISO Download - 1909 - Which English?

    If I'm downloading a 1909 ISO to attempt a repair I am offered two English versions - English or English International - my installation is English (United Kingdom). So which version do I download?

    British English = English International. Agreed, it's obscure. I had to search and discover that for myself when I first came across that.

    Here's how:

    Also note the need to match language with the default when performing an in-place upgrade repair install... so if using UK language packs on a US base, make sure you pick the correct one (US), else you'll get a somewhat confusing message during the repair install.

    Please note that you must choose the correct Language, Edition and Architecture that your device is currently running.
    Windows 10 Setup automatically detects current settings, but if you need to change these, clear the Use the recommended option for this PC checkbox.
    For edition and hardware architecture, keyboard shortcut WINDOWS KEY+PAUSE/BREAK opens System Properties window. Alternatively, right-click This PC in Start screen/Start menu, File Explorer, or on the Desktop and select Properties.
    See the Windows edition section for Pro/non-Pro (Windows 8.1) or Pro/Home (Windows 10) information. Architecture is listed in the System section: check whether the System Type line reads "64-bit Operating System" or "32-bit Operating System".

    To find out which language your device came installed with, open Start screen or menu, type "powershell" and launch Windows PowerShell. In the dark blue window, type [CultureInfo]::InstalledUICulture and press Enter key.

    Please note that downloading Windows setup in a wrong language does not allow non-destructive reinstallation, the option will be grayed out.
