If you’re a Windows Insider, you can download ISOs of Windows 10 Build 17758 and clean install the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. If you like to live on the cutting edge and want to test the early features of Windows 10, you can grab the latest ISOs from Microsoft’s website.
The Redmond-based Microsoft has already confirmed that it is almost at the end of the development of Windows 10 October 2018 Update, also known as version 1809 and Redstone 5.
You can join the Insider program and quickly download the preview builds of RS5. But if you want to perform a fresh install of Windows 10 version 1809 rather than upgrading your PC via Windows Update, you can download the ISO images.
The latest Redstone 5 ISO is of Build 17758 which is the same build that was released to Insiders in the Fast Ring earlier this month. The availability of new ISO suggests that we’re one step closer to the last stages of the development process.
Keep in mind that the ISOs are aimed at Insiders and it’s supposed to allow the clean install of Windows 10 preview build 17758. Windows 10 October 2018 Update is still in preview and there are bugs that may bother you.
Here’s how you can download Windows 10 Build 17758 ISOs
- Open up the Settings app in Windows 10, navigate to ‘Update & Security’ and select ‘Windows Insider Programme’ option.
- Click Get started and follow the on-screen instructions.
- Select Just send me early updates option and then click Confirm.
- Head over to the Windows Insider Preview Download website here.
- Click on Windows Insider Preview – Build 17758 under Select edition section.
- You’ll need to click Confirm, and then your browser will start downloading the ISOs.
Windows 10 Insider Preview ISOs will be available in Home, Pro, Education, and Home Single Language. After this, you can move the ISO that you just downloaded to an USB flash drive or DVD and boot your PC from this installation media. You can also open the setup file and upgrade your current installation.
While the Redstone 5 is in the final stage of development, it’s still a work-in-progress and shouldn’t be tested on a daily driver. There are some bugs in Windows 10 October 2018 Update preview builds but it’s usable enough.
