Windows 10 build 10130 ISO Files now available

Download and Prepare Windows 10 Preview .ISO file (build 10130)

There are a number of ways to start the Windows 10 setup, but before we even do that though, we need to ensure we have our copy of Windows 10 downloaded and turned into a bootable copy.

Determine whether 64 bit or 32 bit is right for your needs:

The following article will help determine the difference between both:

32 vs 64 bit

The article references Windows 7, but the same principles apply to Windows 10.

Preparing the .ISO file for installation.

See instructions for burning .ISO files in Windows 7 or later:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Burn-a-CD-or-DVD-from-an-ISO-file

You can also use the Microsoft USB/DVD Tool, which is recommended for Windows XP users.

After obtaining the .iso file you use the Microsoft .iso to USB/DVD tool to create a bootable DVD or USB (requires a blank DVD or USB flash stick of at least 4 GB).

For UEFI based systems

If your computer is UEFI based, these are normally systems that come pre-loaded with Windows 8 or later, you will need to prepare the ISO file for such a configuration or you will receive an error message during setup. The thumbdrive needs to be formatted as FAT32 and use the GPT partitioning scheme. To do this, you need to use Rufus, a small tool you can download for free.

Here's the url for making a clean install on any pc of Windows 10 with usb-flashstick or dvd. No old programms for help are needed anymore. It is a direct solution. Microsoft gives the helptool. It is in Dutch language but you can choose languages and for 32-bits or 64-bits. https://www.microsoft.com/nl-nl/software-download/windows10

Andre da Costa you gave a good solution, but now old programmes aren't needed.

Hope it solves your problems bro's and sis's. You may be asked about the Product Key from your Windows 7 or 8.

Take care it's a clean install, so other documents will get lost!!! But in case of black screen and so on it may be the only solution left. Therefore read other problems and solutions first.

Thank you!!  You are the first person who has given me advice and directions that I can actually use.  I followed your instructions and everything worked.  Windows 10 is now functioning on my laptop.  I don't know whether or not I will like it but at least now I have a chance at finding out whether or not it will work for me.
I really like your posts Andre....I just would like to know -If I do a clean install and continue this way...Can I still upgrade later to the RTM? or does it have to be from an existing Win7/8 operating system?.*john
mine...I'm out-of date.

Can you please make this discussion an "Important Thread"

so it pins to the start of threads for Windows Insider Program.

This should help a lot of people with testing.

I have 10125 ISO which loads fine so will stay with that release until the bug is fixed with 10130 or what every version number is published as loadable...

Downloaded the x64 iso but it does the same boot loop as the update via the fast ring.  At this point I will wait for 10134 or what ever number is next...Frustrating!!
