Without explanation, Microsoft has removed the just-released November update (version 1511) from the download page it offers to the general public. The media creation tool now downloads the initial release of Windows 10 instead. [Update: Microsoft tries to explain.]
Update: A Microsoft spokesperson says the change is intentional:
The November update was originally available via the MCT tool, but we've decided that future installs should be through Windows Update. People can still download Windows 10 using the MCT tool if they wish. The November update will be delivered via Windows Update.
Edit: From the article
And to add insult to those injuries, the sudden removal of the build 10586 ISO files means that the newly added capability to do a clean install using a Windows 7 or Windows 8.x product key is now unavailable to the general public unless they were fast enough to download and save an ISO file before the sudden change.
I never received a confirmation if it was possible but I wonder if Microsoft pulled the update and stopped the ability to use a Windows 7 product key to install because one could clean install Windows 10 using an OEM SLP key from Windows 7 as those are freely available on the Web.
