Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10525 - Windows as a service !

18 Aug 2015

Posted by anyweb in Windows News

just when you thought Windows 10 was done, along comes another build after RTM, this one is build 10525 and available only to Insiders.




With the general availability of Windows 10, the Windows Insider Program will focus on building and delivering Windows as a service by updating Windows 10 with new features and functionality on an ongoing basis. As always, Windows Insiders will be the first to see these new features and changes.


Windows Feedback app and Insider Hub

Microsoft have decided to include the Windows Feedback app in the released version of Windows 10 for all our customers. This was a very popular Windows Insider suggestion – one of the top 10 upvotes.


At the same time, they wanted to continue giving Windows Insiders an exclusive and premium experience when it comes to sending feedback. So, here’s what you can expect from the Feedback app going forward:




Build 10525


The most exciting news in this post is that we have a new build for PCs we’re releasing today to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring – Build 10525.


This is our first new build since the release of Windows 10, and I’m very happy to talk about one new thing that you’ll see because it really highlights both how your feedback influences the product development as well as illustrating how some things will get implemented at different times depending on when we’re trying to stabilize and drive quality vs. when we’re open for new feature work.

Windows 10 Enterprise is available to download now !

29 Jul 2015

Posted by anyweb in Windows News

This is a short post to provide links for downloading the ISOS from MSDN. Microsoft have released Windows 10 officially today to the general public, and if you opted for the Windows Insider program you are probably already running that version of Windows 10.


Download Windows 10 Enterprise ISOS

If however you want to download the ISOs for use with Configuration Manager or MDT then the ISO’s can be downloaded from Microsoft using the following links:

What about the other versions ?

Windows 10 (like previous releases of Windows) comes in different flavors (SKUs) to target different markets, and the following versions are available on MSDN today:

So what does each version mean, let’s take them one by one using explanations gathered from MSDN itself.

Windows 10 (Multiple Editions)

This release contains Windows 10 Professional and Windows 10 Home. Please refer to your product keys to determine which products are included with your subscription. To explain those two versions see below.

Windows 10 Pro
Windows 10 Pro is designed for small and medium businesses enabling organizations to manage their devices and apps, protect their business data, facilitate remote and mobile scenarios as well as take advantage of the cloud technologies for their organizations. In addition to small and medium businesses, Windows 10 Pro devices would be a good choice for organizations supporting CYOD programs.

Windows 10 Home
Windows 10 Home is the definitive Windows 10 experience for general consumers. It offers a familiar and personal experience combined with new innovations for getting things done and having more fun. New features include: an all-new web browser built for doing things online; Windows Hello which providers users a warm welcome and a convenient log-on*; and great new multi-tasking features including snapping multiple apps on the screen and creating virtual desktops for more space.

Windows 10 Education

This release is available just for education customers in volume licensing programs. Windows 10 Education includes features from Windows 10 Enterprise that are ideal for advanced security, and the comprehensive device control and management needs of today’s educational institution. Windows 10 Education also enables simplified deployment in the education space; this edition provides a direct path for many devices to upgrade from Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro.

Windows 10 Enterprise

This version of Windows 10 builds on Windows 10 Pro adding premium features designed to address the needs of large and mid-size organizations (including large academic institutions), such as advanced protection against modern security threats, full flexibility of OS deployment, updating and support options; as well as comprehensive device and app management and control capabilities.

Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB

This edition provides customers with access to the Long Term Servicing Branch as a deployment option for their mission critical devices and environments. The LTSB version will receive security updates just like you do today for previous versions of Windows, and is in contrast to the other branch called Current Branch. That version allows users to not only be updated for security issues but also to avail of new features as they become available to Windows 10.

Windows 10 Features on Demand

Windows 10 features on demand are additional feature options available through Windows Update. This download allows organizations to pre-configure Windows 10 installation software with these features prior to deployment. This download can also be used to install features from local media.

So how can I upgrade my Windows 7 (or Windows 8) to Windows 10 ?

You can use the Upgrade task sequence in Configuration Manager as detailed here or if you are doing this manually, to get details about upgrading to Windows 10 see this link from Microsoft.

Posted by anyweb in Windows News

Yet another build of Windows 10, this time 10240 is available, and it's a TH build meaning threshold or 'very near to RTM'.




and after the update is complete you get a new OOBE requiring you to accept the license terms, review the new apps like Microsoft EDGE and then accept the settings changes, once you login, the Watermark is gone, you can review the Windows version using winver in a cmd prompt.
