How to create installation media for Windows 10 November Update


Microsoft has released the first significant update for its Windows 10 operating system since it was released on 29 July of this year.

Although members of the Windows Insider program have been testing versions of this update since shortly after the release of Windows 10 at the end of July this is the first update, beyond the regular Cumulative Updates that have been released, that non Insiders will see on their systems.

The upgrade is being delivered through Windows Update and will use the same upgrade process that everyone experienced with the July Windows 10 release.

However, if you prefer not to wait for the staged rollout and want to do an in place upgrade or a clean install, you can use the Windows Media Creation Tool to either build an installation USB or save the ISOs.

The Media Creation Tool will allow you to store/create install media for both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 10 and it will identify the version of Windows already installed on your device to upgrade or install the right version of Windows 10.

Check out the gallery to see the step by step process to upgrading/clean installing the Windows 10 November Update using the Windows Media Creation Tool.

You begin this process by downloading the tool from Microsoft.
