Do Windows 10 ISOs have updated releases between versions?

 

And if so, is there a way to tell before running the media creation tool or downloading the ISO? Maybe in the file properties of the media creation tool?

 

I'm thinking of something like 1607.2 or 1703.1, as with Linux distros.

 

 

Thanks.

  • Each version of Windows has its own MediaCreationTool
  • If you thinking of Windows 1703, it has changed three times since March 17th, when the first version was released.
  • MediaCreatinTool makes one of the ISO and the installation process to choose the appropriate version. (Home, Pro, Education, etc)

To reinforce what zainmax has posted I have not found "significant differences" in the ISOs within a given release.  There has been discussion on these forums about this before and they can and do change, but not congruent with the various build numbers within a version.  Part of the Windows 10 install process always involves checking online for updates, so as long as you've got an ISO for the correct version it will update itself to the most recent build as part of applying updates during the install process.

 

There is, as has been previously noted, one "grand unified" ISO that will determine what edition (Home, Pro, Education, S) will be installed on your machine either based on the license key if this is a completely fresh installation or on what is recorded on Microsoft's servers for your hardware if you're reinstalling.

Thanks for your replies.
 
I created a Windows 10 USB shortly after 1703 was released, so it's likely the first version.
 
With Ubuntu, I like to keep the latest ISO handy (eg 16.04.2) just to reduce updates and make installation smoother and quicker.

Same thing is true with Windows, so it always pays to have a few around. The ISO for Windows 10 1703 will probably change twice before the update to Windows 10 1710 is released.
