    I was wondering if someone could explain this and sticky it. I personally downloaded a bunch of ESD's and it can be confusing what is what. If someone could explain what all these different channels are, I would appreciate it and it would clear up things on the forum.

    Specifically, I have difficulty understanding the difference between "pro" and "multi". I assume they install the same thing except "multi" lets you choose "Home" during the installation process.

    The ESD's are all Windows Update ESD's (Mediacreation Tool uses the same files to create the ISO(S))

    The ISO's are either MSDN (Techbench downloads the MSDN Multiple Editions (Home and Pro) and (K)N versions) or VLSC (Volume).
