    I do a lot of reinstalls of Windows for people. Now Windows 10 is here. 99% of the computers I do are HP,Dell, etc computers. I want to download the correct .iso so I can install both Home or Pro versions. When I bring up the Microsoft tool to create the media there is a Windows 10 Home Single Language option which I understand would have both Home and Pro on it. There is no option for the Pro version with Single Language. Do I have to do a separate download .iso for the pro? My goal here is to have 1 .iso that creates both Home/Pro 32/64 Bit in one .iso.Their tool will do this for the Home but not the Pro. Hope I have communicated my goal here. Thanks for any replies.

    MCT offers only Retail Versions, Single Language is OEM only/strictly.

    Ok I can create the SL Home version from Microsofts tool. But mine for instance is an HP computer that came with Pro. That Home SL version would only have Home and not both correct? In that case what I use for my Pro OEM Installs? That tool's Win Pro 10 selection? Is that Retail or OEM?. Thanks.

    Microsofts tool I describe above lets you make the .iso with both 32 bit and 64 bit in one .iso which I like. But the selection saying SL Home prompted my question of will it also have Pro since it is SL OEM. My goal is 1 flash drive to have both 32/64 bit versions of both Home and Pro.

    The creation tool only creates x86-x64 combo with Home SL correct. The DL site has SL, but are individual x86-x64. However, both architectures have PRO and HOME SL in each.

    So you will need to create your own x86+64+Pro+Home iso.

    You can use the media creation tool as a basic 32/64-bit iso.

    Just replace both install.esd files inside with an install.wim form the Home+Pro Multi 32 and 64 iso.

    So what does my .iso that is 5.57GB in size that it created install? I selected Win 10 Home SL and selected both,meaning 32/64?? I'm still confused here cause you say that the SL has both versions. So to me it says I can install either from what the SL Home has created???? Sorry for not understanding.

    the DL file will have

    x86 SL PRO/CORE in one iso

    x64 SL PRO/CORE in one iso

    two different and separate files.

    ----------

    The Creation tool will create

    x86 SL HOME
    x64 SL HOME
    x86 AND x64 SL HOME

    but will not create
    x86 SL HOME/PRO
    x64 SL HOME/PRO
    x86 AND x64 SL HOME/PRO

    or for that matter, looking at the SL options, it will only allow to make HOME period, no PRO SL at all.

    What you created will install HOME SL x86 or x64 only, No PRO. unless the creation tool only shows HOME but also does PRO, but that would need to be created and tested haha
