    @BAU, I have 2 questions.
    1. What is different between Select Version ( i.e. 2004) and Lastest MCT in choose GUI?
    2. If I choose ISO instead of update on PC, Can this ISO upgrade later when clean install?

    Thank You.

    It's a fully usable ISO, the method is the same as the MCT and the ESD>ISO conversion by @abbodi1406

    It's actually done since 20.10, but I have lame internet atm and can't test it.
    And since I consider it an anniversary update, it comes with a surprise. Stay tuned!

    investigating issue creating business editions for recent versions... (was fine for 1803, but like I said, limited net = limited testing)
    edit:
    - found xml issue with 1909, 2004 and 2009. utf-8 gets mangled in some parts
    - it should be fixable [fixed]
    edit2:
    - but the actual reason why business edition resulted in mct error was because the script processed Enterprise entries for ARM64 as well - microsoft changed something in the latest catalogs for 1909+ at some point and I did not take that into account [todo]
    edit3:
    - HOTFIXED utf-8, enterprise on 1909+

    I am aware and I have contacted pastebin.
    just today they have unblocked for me another script, don't see why they would not do the same for this one, just have to wait for working hours at their location

    I have run the latest MCT script but it does not display the editions options - even after I uncommented the Set OPTION for it. It goes straight to the Windows installer screen....Please advise how to fix

    I have just run the bat from BAU as admin (guess its a must to do) and here everything showed up and I picked 20H2 and no problems getting iso in the end both consumer and the enterprise version x64 and x86.

    Thanks @Enthousiast for the video demo

    There's no need really to edit the script in any way, by default it will provide all the choices available to be selected inside that "Windows installer screen". Try it as-is, without modifications.
    Script needs powershell to do adjustments on the MCT configuration. Powershell comes enabled by default since Windows 7. So, can you run powershell?

    Yes - Powershell runs fine. I have just tried running the MCT script manually from Powershell and now get the drop down menu options....

    I went ahead and did it.. latest links for 1909,2004 generated on-the-fly!
    And another refactoring to the xml editing part to do it just once - it's blazing fast.
    Bundled csv with ver/edition/size/hashes etc with a new layout and moved at the very end of the script, so it can be easily extended in the future.
    Removed edu vl and pro vl in 1607 and 1703, since those editions are already available in the combined consumer esd
    (but if needed can be added back easily at the end of the script, see github link)

    edit: I'm aware there might be issues with some links for the 1909 version (or others), will try to solve once I get connectivity to microsoft back

    I can get the 11/1 version of the MCT.bat tool to work fine. But the 11/14 version consistently triggers a 0x8000FFFF - 0x20018 error.
