How to download an updated Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO
To download the Windows 10 Anniversary Update ISO, all we need is the application Media Creation Tool. To do this, we simply have to access the main Microsoft website from the following link and click on the second button called «Download the tool now«.
Once we have downloaded the Media Creation Tool, we execute it and we will see a window where it will ask us if we want to update the equipment or create an installation medium to update other equipment.
We select the second option and continue. After a few seconds the assistant will ask us the language, the edition and the architecture from the ISO we want to download.
We continue with the wizard and in the next step it will ask us if we want to generate a USB drive to install the operating system or download the ISO.
We choose this second option and, after a few seconds, the process of downloading the operating system image along with the update will begin.
This process can take several minutes, so we must wait for it to finish. After downloading, the program will tell us that it has been downloaded correctly and where the resulting ISO image has been saved.
Now, all we have to do is check that it has been downloaded correctly by checking the size of the updates. If you have chosen the 64-bit version, it should occupy around 4.1 GB, while if we have chosen the 32-bit version, the size will be 3.2 GB.
Once we have the ISO image we can do whatever we want with it, for example, install it in a virtual machine directly from it (for example, to test it), burn it to a DVD to perform clean installations on other computers and even burn it to a USB memory to always carry it with us and to be able to update any computer without having to download the image again.
