Now Everyone Can Download the Windows 10 ISO

Our very own James Kerr pinged me on Google Hangouts at 02:52 am this morning (I was soundly asleep, here in Canada – no all-night download fests happening here!) with the news that Microsoft had released Windows 10 ISOs publically to all.


While it was expected that users would be forced to reserve their Windows 10 update through the GWX (Get Windows 10 App) and patiently wait for the update to download, if you’re growing a little impatient, head over to and you can join the hoards pulling down the bits from servers across the globe.



The download comes with the following notes:

If you need to install or reinstall Windows 10, you can use the tools on this page to create your own installation media using either a USB flash drive or a DVD.

Before you begin

  • Make sure you have:
    • An internet connection (internet service provider fees may apply).
    • Sufficient data storage available on a computer, USB or external drive for the download.
    • A blank USB or DVD (and DVD burner) with at least 4 GB of space if you want to create media. We recommend using a blank USB or blank DVD, because any content on it will be deleted.
  • Read the System Requirements.
  • If you will be installing the operating system for the first time, you will need your Windows product key (xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx). For more information about product keys and when they are required, visit the FAQ page.
  • For Enterprise editions please visit the Volume Licensing Service Center.

Expect download speeds to be a little slow as the world and his wife tries to access the download. But there’s now no excuse not to jump on the upgrade train!
