    I managed to download Windows 10 v1511 to a thumbdrive just before Microsoft pulled it.

    Will it still be OK to install Windows 10 this way rather than reverting to the previous ISO build and then go through a shedload of updates via Windows update?

    I'm hoping there won't be any nasty surprises?

    I'm guessing there won't be :rolleyes:

    You could always integrate the updates into the installation;)

    I have a fresh install with that .iso. There are some known issue.

    Regedit can freeze when searching.
    Driver issues.
    Long boots.

    I have experienced long boots, and regedit freezes. These are things i can live with until, there is a fix or a new .iso.

    Most of those reports here came from members who (over)tweaked/modded 10240 and upgraded it to 10586. Clean/fresh installs don't have those errors, at least not in the 30+ times i've tested it on my testsystems.

    MS didn't pull anything, they stopped users to download/use 10586 thru the tools, thru windows update it is 10586 what's offered.

    I'm running a clean install without modifications. I think my issues are driver related. I have to wait for a Asrock, to write new ones.

    It's a tricky one to call as I've done a clean install with the 1511 ISO on a Lenovo Win 8 laptop (I wiped the drive first) and it installed and activated automatically - no issues at all.

    The only real problem with a clean install of 10586 appears to be BitLocker not working on SSDs

    I'm running Threshold 2 upgrade (keep files and app) without a single issue. I'm getting, roughly, a 10% to 15% speed increase.

    No issues so far, drivers okay, boot times quicker and overall stability is quite visible.

    Then again not to forget all the other reports of issues. I'm not the person using Windows 10 :D
