    Is there any way to get that into my greasy fingers? :D :oops:

    Unfortunately it's timebombed. And probably pinned to this one build. But maybe we can learn from it.

    For anyone who wants ISO of 10537:
    The only leaked ISO of 10537 is homebrew from ESD file. You may ask @Enthousiast for link, since I'm not really able to upload it because it is 5.3GB.

    %windir%\servicing\sessions and check out all xml files in any build. You will notice that starter was the first edition installed and then it was upgraded to final edition.

    No, because to create proper Windows 10 Starter image you need a Windows build which had broken staging cleanup. The only known builds with this problem are 10537 and 10540. You can only create starter if you have all required packages for it. Microsoft-Windows-EditionSpecific-Starter-Package which leaked with some of RS2 builds is not enough to create proper Windows 10 Starter image. You will get half-assed Starter that will not be able to be upgraded to anything.

    Also the half-assed version won't let you login at all even if you manage to enable the built in Administrator - complaining about sessions

    I was able to get Windows 10 Insider Preview 15019 (rs_prerelease) amd64 installed, and runnings as Starter,, with a little modding.

    Can some one POST a link to these Packages (ANY Version} please, because with these Packages, i would not need to do a little modding.;)
    Code:
    Microsoft-Windows-EditionPack-Starter-Package
    Microsoft-Windows-EditionPack-Starter-WOW64-Package
    OR tell me, where i can download ISO of 10537 or 10540 as i cannot find a download link that works.:eek:

    To create a proper Windows 10 Starter image which has all capabilities including upgrade to other editions you need the following packages (this is list for 10537):
    Code:
    Microsoft-Windows-CoreARMEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-CoreConnectedCountrySpecificEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-CoreConnectedEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-CoreConnectedSingleLanguageEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-CoreCountrySpecificEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-CoreEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-CoreSingleLanguageEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EducationEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EmbeddedIndustryAEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EmbeddedIndustryEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EmbeddedIndustryEEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EmbeddedIndustryEEvalEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EmbeddedIndustryEvalEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EnterpriseEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EnterpriseEvalEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EnterpriseSEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-EnterpriseSEvalEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-PPIProEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-ProfessionalEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-ProfessionalSEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-ProfessionalStudentEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-ProfessionalWMCEdition
    Microsoft-Windows-StarterEdition
    
    + all required language packages
    
    Packages like EditionSpecific and other are sub-packages of these main packages. Without these main packages you will get half-assed image which will be broken in one or more ways. None of these packages leaked in any other build than builds with staging cleanup bug.

    The ISO I got was from BetaArchive thanks to a user which downloaded and uploaded it for me to play with. I'm not going to say here who it was, because I don't want this person to lose their FTP access for sharing files.
