Although we have a new Build it's in the form of an update.... Marvelous. One step forward, two steps back! I hope they release an iso but in any case we can use the files to create one i guess but still...
I use the procedure which I outlined in an old post. There were follow up posts that it did not work for some, which I could not fathom. I have used this procedure for a long time and it has never failed. I can't track it now, but to repeatBest to prepare a dedicated folder for this.)
Unzip the attached to the prepared folder.
Open an elevated command prompt and navigate to the folder. ESDtoISO C:\RecoveryImage\install.esd (First check that the file is, indeed, in that folder!)
Eventually you will see the command: Select (i)so or (Q)uit. Obviously you select "i"
In some cases, the command panel may report errors. You can ignore these, should it happen.
The process takes a while, according to your equipment. With my average gear, it takes about ten minutes. At that stage IT IS NOT complete. Wait
and it will say exporting image, with a percentage countdown.
A recent build of Windows 10 has leaked onto the internet today, which includes Spartan, however it's missing a number of important features.
WinBeta has thrown together a quick video demonstrating Spartan in this build, so check that out below. As per usual, we do not recommend installing leaked builds as they are not intended for the public.
Not just you, pal. I am not neurotic, but I have a feeling they are playing to the whiners who keep asking for a build update. As I said before, there is no doubt, all round, that 4041 is a downgrade.
Anyway, we can wait and see
It could be that Build 10014 was an internal build or one released for partners/Dev's (most likely). What they get is often quite different to what Insiders get to play with. Here's a list of recent builds although strangely i can't see 10014:
Another out of band update for 10 today.
Windows Technical Preview March Update for x64-based systems. (KB3050284)
This update resolves a problem that may result in a transparent Start screen and Task view, transparencies when snapping or dragging windows, and can cause desktop thumbnails to appear as black squares.
This update resolves a problem that results in severe graphical artifacts on screen when Magnifier is launched in docked or lens mode.
This update contains a reliability improvement to resolve a common system crash.
I had to wad back through a huge number of development builds, but finally found "014". You can see that it was back in the very beginning of feb. I cannot imagine the reason for a leak as old as that appearing, unless it was from a Cortan devotee!
Microsoft have released the 10041 Iso for download:
Earlier today, Microsoft released Windows 10 build 10041 to those of you in the "slow ring" of the Windows Insider Program. This build was accompanied by three patches, which addressed various bugs relating to the Start screen and Task view features. Build 10041 was originally made available to the "fast ring" nearly one week ago, but obviously without the fixes that were made available today -- a perk of being in the "slow ring."
For those of you who are interested in installing Windows 10 build 10041 on a virtual machine or as a clean install, you can snag the ISO files, which were made available today. This new build is already available via Windows Update for those of you participating in the Windows Insider program. Here's how you can snag the ISO:
