Download Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16299 Offline ISO Files
UPDATED on Oct 18, 2017: Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16299 offline ISO files now available for download.
We know that even after releasing the final RTM version of Windows 10 to public, Microsoft continues providing the free Insider Preview (previously known as Technical Preview) builds of Windows 10 for download to public which bring new features, fixes and improvements. Microsoft is doing this so that users can help in testing and further improving the new OS.
These preview builds can be installed and used as primary operating system but you may face bugs and issues as these are testing builds. These new update builds are downloaded and installed using “Settings -> Update and recovery -> Windows Update” page as mentioned in following article:
But there is a big issue with this process. The update builds are huge in size because these builds are installed using the full setup ISO files of Windows 10 and users need to wait for many hours to complete the upgrade process. Also if a user wants to install these new Windows 10 updated builds in more than one computer, he’ll need to download the new build separately in all computers. It causes waste of Internet connection bandwidth as well as users time.
Many Windows 10 testers were complaining about this issue since a long time and now Microsoft has listened to their requests. Microsoft has released offline ISO files of the recently released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16299 to public. These ISO files are available in both 32-bit (x86) as well as 64-bit (x64) editions.
ISO files are available in following languages: English (United States), English (United Kingdom), Chinese (Simplified), Portuguese (Brazilian), German, French, French (Canada), Russian, Japanese, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Spanish (Latin America), Polish, Turkish, Swedish, Czech, Arabic, Korean, Chinese (Traditional), Finnish, Thai and Chinese Single Language (Simplified).
