Preferred Solution: Windows 10 (RS3)Fall Creators Update16299.15 Via Media Creation Tool

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
Install windows 10 and confirm activation as suggested in forums. Downloaded Windows Media Creation Tool to create fresh reinstall. Ran it to create 64 bit ISO. Now using the ISO to reinstall windows 10. At 30% restore, it failed. I tried various recovery. Even did chkdsk on drive c with /r and also with /f. Same problem again - failure at about 30% restore.

Reading in forums, I discover Refresh Windows Tool(exe). Downloaded and ran it (tool) to download Windows 10.
What I dislike. No Pause or ability to use a download manager. When this download of about 3gb is done, where is it saved? How to use? Yea, automatic for I still have prior install files (programs, data folders,etc) which means nothing was done. Did restart hoping for a fresh reinstall - no changes. Thus I am posting in this forum with paragraph 1 (media tool) and Refresh tool (paragraph 2).

Went into BIOS startup and told it to use DVD (boot order priority), but instead window normal login was done and given. Thus, use window recovery within to execute the ISO.

Several months ago, I downloaded the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool (MCT).
I created a bootable USB flash drive from this tool back around end of December or January.

Then I ran the following command as shown in the output of my print images here that the description is Windows 10 Technical Preview.

Also, the build is 10586.0 but I do not see version 1511 which means the November Update.
If it is the November Update, then why does it show as Created On 10/30/2015?
I marked those in Red as you can see.

What I am guessing here, that during the Windows 10 clean installation process, it does do Critical Updates, so I guess those Updates are updated to the November Update. But this happens during the installation process.

A:Windows 10 Media Creation Tool (MCT

You have the latest ISO available from Microsoft. Build 10586.0 is the November update base build with no cumulative updates applied. Install it and you will get version 1511 build 10586.0 and a cumulative update from Windows Update will bring it up to build 10586.104. If you downloaded the ISO today you would get exactly the same version/build.

Hi guys,

A while back ago, I had downloaded and performed a clean install of Win10 using the MCT.
I performed the following command to check which version of Win10 is being installed and it only says the build number and not the version number which should be 1511. Thats what I want.

By performing a clean installation using the MCT, how can I check if it is installing version 1511?

Is there any other commands that I can perform to check from the INSTALL.ESD (from the ISO file) if the MCT is really version 1511?

Thanks

Hi everyone Im new to this site. I been trying to download windows 10 via windows update but it's not appearing in my windows update. I tried windows update fixit multiple times and still nothing. My real question is if I decide to upgrade my windows 7 to 10 how would I go about that. I read on google that microsoft released a creation tool to help with the process. But I upgraded my windows 7 home to windows 7 ultimate via a "Anytime Upgrade Key" that I purchased. I read on google that if you use the media creation tool to upgrade you need to enter a product key. I have the product key for my windows 7 home version. Its the little sticker underneath my laptop. BUT I used a anytime upgrade on my laptop to upgrade from Win7 Home, to Win7 Ultimate. How would I proceed with upgrading to 10. I wanna upgrade to 10 not right now but probably by the fall when the new UI drops for XBOX ONE. O yea for people wondering I do have the Win10 Icon saying its reserved but besides that I don't know. Would I still use the little sticker underneath my laptop to proceed with the upgrade (I prefer upgrade vs clean install, I fear that I wouldn't be able to get all my drivers again).
Sticker underneath is for HOME. I upgraded to ultimate via anytime upgrade key. Does that make the sticker underneath invalid. Thanks

A:Windows media creation tool problem

What is your intention with Media Creation Tool ?
Are you planning to install Windows 10 over your Windows 7 Home Premium ?

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

Open the Media Creation Tool link again > scroll down to Download Tool now and click the button.
click Run > select Create installation media for another PC
That will start downloading the iso to your computer.
Make sure you know where the download is going to be saved to.

After that, you have several choices:
1. Burn the iso file to a bootable dvd or usb, and use it for a Clean Install.
2. Use the iso file itself and do an In-place Upgrade Install.( use Step #7 )

Whichever way you decide, make sure you create a Win 7 Home Premium installation disc, or a set of Recovery disks.
That will be you "Plan B" in case things go awry.

A:Windows 10 Media Creation Tool Questions

You need to up an upgrade with the media creation tool, once it has upgraded your system, it does some sort of system fingerprinting to the MSFT activation servers so it can recognize the PC, when you clean install you can just skip the key bits and it just activates.

The creation tool will detect which version you are entitled to.

Hello

Currently I installed Windows 10 Pro build 10586.0 from my USB flash drive created from the Media Creation Tool (MCT).
My question is, I noticed that Microsoft has recently updated the MCT to the latest build.

Before I decide to put this latest build onto my USB flash drive using the MCT, do I need to reformat my USB or will the MCT do the whole process for me by overwriting all the current Win 10 boot and setup files that were on my USB?

So right now, I have all the Windows 10 bootable files created from the MCT, but the build that I have on there now is 10586.0.

So if I decide to create another Win 10 bootable USB using the MCT (Build 10586.36 or higher), will the MCT do all the reformatting automatically or do I need to manually reformat my USB myself before running the MCT?

That's how we got ours updated.

To those who plan to use the Media Creation Tool to download the Windows 10 ISO file, it will no longer allow you to download and install 10586(the Threshold 2 version).
It will only allow you to download and install 10240(the RTM version).
Once 10240 is installed, you then obtain 10586 via Windows update.

I have found this problem on other forums but unfortunately they were unable to solve it as well. The media tool is supposed to create a bootable usb with which can install windows 10. I need to make one in order to reinstall my OS as I'm going to be formatting it. I have 6 different usb drives, all tested and in working order. When using the tool it is unable to detect any of them. As I said before I found this same problem on other forums and they proposed that the brand of usb was the cause and to try a brand like Toshiba. Well, a Toshiba usb drive I ordered a couple of weeks ago arrived in the mail today. I popped it in and still the tool could not detect it. Now, I'm left without options wondering why a program made by Microsoft of all places, seems to just be not working. If anyone has this problem or had it and figured it out, please help me out and tell me what you did. Thanks!

As with the Creators Update, the key to our phased approach is actively listening to all available feedback mechanisms and making the appropriate product updates during the rollout. This allows us to provide a high-quality experience for the broadest set of users at an accelerated rate, while also continually increasing the quality and security of Windows 10. This was our approach with the Creators Update released in April and user feedback on this approach was very positive.

For the best experience, we recommend you wait until Windows 10 is automatically offered to your device. You don?t have to do anything to get the update; it will roll out automatically to you through Windows Update if you?ve chosen to have updates installed automatically on your device. Once the download is complete and the update is ready to install, we?ll check with you, so you can pick the right time to finish the installation and reboot. We do this so we can ensure the update does not disrupt you, and we use active hours to help suggest a good time.

If you don?t want to wait for the update to roll out to you, you can manually check for updates on your personal PC using the steps below. This will only work if your device is eligible to get the Fall Creators Update as part of the initial roll out phase. Alternatively, you can manually get the update today via the Software Download Site. This option is only recommended for advanced users on devices running a licensed version of Windows 10. If ...

The OS it's running is Windows 10 Home 64bit.

I have downloaded the Media Creation Tool in order to download the ISO files for the partition but the none in the selection of Windows 10s in the "Edition" drop down menu match mine.

This is the choice:

- Windows 10
- Windows 10 Home Single Language
- Windows 10 N

The selected edition when the "Use the recommended options for this PC" is ticked is "Windows 10".

None of them include "home" apart from the Single Language edition.

If my current OS is Windows 10 Home should I just select "Windows 10" from the menu?

I take it then I won't be asked to enter an activation key?

As you can probably tell I'm a newbie at this so I appreciate all your help and advice!

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Reaches RTM

Microsoft has completed development of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, with the official release to take place as planned on October 17.

The company today shipped Windows 10 build 16299.15 to insiders in the Fast ring, and according to reports, this is the RTM build of the Fall Creators Update that everyone will get later this month.

The only difference is that Microsoft will continue to service (to improve) this particular build with more cumulative updates, and this means that insiders will be provided with several patches in the coming days until October 17.

Microsoft has promised to confirm when the RTM build is compiled, so an announcement in this regard is expected anytime soon, especially because the company is also likely to start pushing smaller patches to devices enrolled in the Insider program in the next few days.

No word on the mobile release just yet
For the time being, no stand-alone ISOs are available for insiders, but once the very same build is released to the Slow ring, such media should also be released for those who want to perform a clean install. Additionally, this build should also make it to the Release Preview ring in the coming weeks.

Of course, whoever wants to clean-install build 16299.15 can build their own ISO, though this requires additional steps. Learn here how to build your own Windows 10 ISO.

Say goodbye to these Windows 10 features in the Fall Creators Update

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is just around the corner. The upcoming feature update is purported to sport the "1709" version number. It will also feature accessibility improvements, hardened security, enhancements to Windows AutoPilot management tools, and Microsoft account recovery directly via the lock screen, among other things.

However, there are a number of existing features that are getting removed or deprecated as well. Now, Microsoft has published a comprehensive list of features that are no longer in active development and will be removed in future updates; the company did the same before the rollout of the Creators Update. This has been done to allow customers and IT professionals to consider these changes and make future plans accordingly.

https://threatpost.com/say-goodbye-to-smbv1-in-Windows-fall-creators-update/126387/

The crusty SMBv1 file-sharing protocol, abused by a NSA exploit last month that spread WannaCry, will be removed from Windows 10 starting with the upcoming Redstone 3 update.

?We can confirm that SMBv1 is being removed for Redstone 3,? a Microsoft representative told Threatpost.

Redstone 3, a code-name for the Fall Creators Update, will begin the phasing out of SMBv1, a plan that reportedly has been in the works for years and is not a reaction to the EternalBlue exploit, nor WannaCry. It is due in September.

SMBv1, short for the Server Message Block protocol, provides shared access to Windows file and print services on a local network. Attackers believed to have ties to North Korea used the EternalBlue exploit, leaked in April by the ShadowBrokers, to spread the ransomware worldwide on May 12. Hospitals in the U.K., giant telecommunications providers across Europe, and many businesses in Russia and across Asia fell victim to WannaCry, which eventually infected unpatched Windows servers running SMBv1 in more than 150 countries.
Microsoft had patched the SMBv1 vulnerability in question in March in MS17-010, one month before the ShadowBrokers? leak, and urged admins worldwide to install the patch immediately. The WannaCry outbreak, however, demonstrated that many organizations did not heed those warnings; the ransomware, generally derided for its shoddy coding, still managed to infect... Read more

Hi guys, which is better, upgrading from Windows Update or via the "Upgrade Now" option in the Media Creation Tool released by Microsoft? Thanks

A:Windows Update or Media Creation Tool (Windows 10)

Best way is to create a ISO using the MCT then just mount it under Windows 8.1 and run setup.exe from the mounted ISO. Save the ISO in case you need it again or use Rufus to create a bootable UEFI/GPT flash drive you can use top reinstall or do a clean install at some point.

A:Windows Defender ATP Windows 10 Fall Creators Update now open for public preview

As usual, Microsoft makes an announcement that does not include a lot of pertinent details that will result in mass confusion.

This is for Windows Enterprise and Education only; it will not be shipped with Windows Home and Pro versions.

In fact, Windows Defender ATP is not included with Enterprise and Education by default. ATP requires the purchase of a subscription.

Pay attention to Microsoft's caveat:

Important

Some information relates to prereleased product which may be substantially modified before it's commercially released. Microsoft makes no warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information provided here.

They list Windows Pro and Pro Education, but ATP cannot be purchased for Pro at the home-use level. It is for enterprises and other institutions that have opted to use Windows Pro at the volume level.

Today, at Build 2017, we announced the next wave of Windows 10 innovations built to empower the creator in all of us ? the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Available later this year, the Fall Creators Update delivers new experiences for more than 500 million Windows 10 devices: A new design system for the next wave of creativity across devices; experiences that move with you across Windows, iOS, and Android; iTunes, Spotify, SAP Digital Boardroom are coming to the Windows Store; new tools that make Windows home for all developers; and the world?s first Windows Mixed Reality motion controllers ? no markers required.

The spirit of creativity lives in each of us. So often our lives are changed by creating something out of nothing, from a big idea, a dream, or just a simple thought.

Like the incredible developers here at Build, I experienced my own personal creativity in software development. I remember what it was like to wait as my code compiled, then seeing it come to life on the screen for the first time. There is an amazing feeling of creativity that comes from software development. I love seeing that spark of creativity in our Windows developer community.

The Windows 10 Creators Update began rolling out last month to more than 500 million Windows 10 devices around the world.

Hi Voljka,For company or production environment, Windows Insider Preview / Release Preview builds is not recommended, as the drivers may not be ready for all types of hardware.  I would suggest you revert back to Windows 10 RS3 (15063), and wait until it is ready and show up in the Windows Update.

In the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Device Portal now offers several new tools from across Windows to help you location test your UWP, explore Mixed Reality, build new hardware peripherals and test your apps new installation pipeline. It?s a little bit of goodness for everyone, and we?re excited to share these with you.

If you?re not familiar with Device Portal, you can check out the blog posts below to see what other tools you can find in Device Portal, or look at the new docs.microsoft.com to learn how to enable it.

And as always, all of these tools are backed by a REST API, so that you can use it from a scripting or client application environment using the Device Portal Wrapper.

Location Based Testing
Most of us don?t have the travel budgets to test our apps across the world ? but pretending to travel is almost as good! The Location tool in Device Portal lets you easily change the location that Windows reports to apps. By tapping the ?Override? check box, you can swap out the device location for whatever you set using the map or lat/long text boxes. Be sure to uncheck the box when you?re done so that your location (and timezone) come back to reality ? every vacation must end?

Figure 1: The News app keeping me up to date with local headlines!​
This also works for web pages in Microsoft Edge, letting you test your webpages in different parts of the world.

It was an amazing day today at Build 2017. With the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, we continue to grow the Windows platform so that Windows is home for all developers. As I reflect on the day, I want to highlight how Windows and VS are creating the best end-to-end development process and enabling developers not only to maximize their code reuse, but also to create experiences that are engaging, powered by intelligence and connected across devices.

.NET Development Improvements
With today?s announcement that .NET Standard 2.0 for UWP and XAML Standard will be coming later this year, .NET is now the most complete cross-platform development framework. This combination, along with Visual Studio, makes it easier than ever before to write fully native and full-featured apps for all your target platforms in C#, including Windows, iOS, Android, Linux and, of course, the cloud!

.NET Standard 2.0 and XAML Standard
.NET Standard 2.0 is expanding the UWP surface by over 20,000 APIs to make sure your code is more interoperable than ever. We also know that about 70% of NuGet packages are API compatible with .NET Standard 2.0. Your most requested APIs for UWP, such as Reflection and SqlClient, will be fully accessible to you from the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. In addition, XAML Standard allows you to keep much of your UI code common and still maintain a native look and feel across Windows, iOS, and Android. Your experience on Windows will automatically provide Fluent UI an... Read more
