    Windows 10 "English" or "International English" ?

    When I downloaded it I got build versions 10586, in November. As a matter of Fact, around Nov 21, someone posted that Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 was updated to 10.0.10586.0 to reflect the version of Windows 10 November Update, but was changed back
    to 10.0.10240.16480 matching Windows RTM. However, all my downloads were not build 10.0.10240.16480.

    I have a few Media Creator Tools on hand, one is version 10.0.10240.16480, another is 10.0.10586.0, and 10.0.10586.35.

    Media Creator Tool (MCT) ISO results from December.

    The screen shot on the article says a lot. You will not be able to restore your original system except from a backup the restore partition will not work. It will come on a ISO.

    4 GBs eh? Maybe I'm the only one, but I really miss the days, when a new OS was under a GB in size. Once tried out a Linux Distro, can't remember which one, that you could install just a very basic OS and then build on it from there. Would be nice if a person could do that with Windows as well. Just saying....

    It is probably 2 gb worth of 64 bit OS and 2 GB of drivers to support almost everything made from Vista onwards. All those chip sets, printers, scanners, monitors, keyboards, mice and everything else need drivers so the 4GB is understandable.

    Hi

    I'm glad it's going to come as an ISO file, I just hope there are no hitches involved in dual booting it.

    I don't really want to replace my current Windows 8 install with something I haven't tried out first.

    I guess it's time to update my disk image files just in case I need to restore, after attempting to install it.

    Mike

    As an MVP I have access to MSDN to get the ISO's. I only do clean installs these days and all my factory OEM installs were nuked long ago. I don't have a factory recovery partition to lose. Others are not so lucky though so I foresee another rash of " how do I get a Windows 8.x ISO?" threads when the upgrade fails. Some will, it inevitable.
    Create your recovery media now, if you haven't already! And or image your system, while you still can.

    What I don't understand is why some people even consider the idea of upgrading their existing working OS or dual boot it with something in beta or preview version (unless they mean upgrading a cloned copy).





    Save yourselves the trouble. Spare $20 and get this: Famous Brand 80GB Hard Drive - 3.5, SATA (UNQ00310003) (Refurbished) at TigerDirect.com





    Then download the ISO when it's released and play it safe.


    I have 4 of those 80GB hard drives for "playing" purposes.




    Cheers!

    I really want to play with Win9 in VM first. Then it goes well..I might just do what I did with Win7 and install it as my primary.
    I had Vista when the beta's of Win7 came out and given that I hated Vista it was a no brainier to use Win7 as my primary, beta or not. Worst case is I have to re-install Win8.1/Update one but that's not a big deal and the programs I use don't take long for me to install.

    4GB is fine, IMHO. But do we know when we'll be able to actually download it? Tomorrow? By the end of the week? Next week? :|

    As far as I know from the information that's been posted it was supposed to be on the 30th but I think the plan is for the first week in October now.
