    While foolish to say what M$ will number the RTM, It certainly looks like it.

    It's probably the initial build for OEMs

    they will install latest CU anyway

    There are several other internal builds
    4, 5, 6, 35, 37, 40, 41, 62, 70, 130

    1 and 9 too, but those became public for some reason

    Informed speculation:
    22000.9 is the OEM build provided to manufacturers to load on new PC's and laptops as I write this. If new computers with Windows 11 will be in stores and online ready to ship on October 5th, they have already been built and are in shipment to stores now or within the next 7-10 days.

    When you get home from Best Buy with your new Windows 11 laptop on October 5th and run windows update, it will download the final release CU. Whatever build number that may be. At this point even Microsoft may not know what the final release build will be, because it doesn't matter.

    We will all know on 10-05-21, but I would be willing to bet two zeros on it.

    They are constantly working with OEMs. It's just odd to see OEM language in the files themselves, especially on public releases.
    Perhaps it started as an OEM cumulative specific build, but it was working so well, they decided to make it available to everyone.

    Edit: just downloading this thing out of curiosity and the cumulative is very small. Given that and the above listed older dates of release, I'd say this is a very early release that for some reason was made public. The newer builds are far more developed.

    I noted when the ISO was made from UUP Dump. It starts with 22000.1, then updates to 22000.6 then finally to 22000.9 ---- what that means beats me.

    Version 22000.9 actually installs version 22000.176, it could be the version that comes pre-installed at the factory on new computers. I hope to clear up any doubts when a new version comes out to see if it installs directly in a clean installation version 22000.xxx. It would be a way that manufacturers could put their products on the market without waiting for the Official version.

    Are you sure the ssu/lcu to .176 weren't installed during the oobe stage auto-update function?

    Normal installation begins, it does not ask to put the PC name, it goes to put account User name, restarts, searches for updates and a screen with images of information about the news of windows 11 appears and at the bottom three windows of update installation status. Anyway, when I get another compilation, I do a clean installation with 22000.9 to see what version it installs at the end, it ends up installing 22000.176.

    It shows 22000.1 on About from Diskmanagement, on 22000.9 and 22000.176.

    This is what happens starting from 22000.1 and beyond: seamless CU integration during OOBE.
    So it doesn't matter if you clean installed 22000.1 since July, 22000.56 after a while or 22000.176 right now, it will be the same experience and the same identical build, just with CU installed on top or integrated during OOBE.

    Same thing will happen next month when everybody will get it officially, just with an higher number CU (and I'm saying this for 2 months now).
