Need Windows 10 1909 build.


I need to create a 1909 install media.

The Windows 10 Media Creation website only hosts the latest build. I was able to get a hold of a 1909 .iso using Rufus download, but it will not flash a bootable flash drive that's bootable with secure boot turned ON.

Does anyone have a trick how I can create a bootable 1909 flash drive, that also works with secureboot?

Is there such a thing as a MediaCreationTool1909.exe anymore? Will it still work? Can I still find it somewhere?

Thanks in advance.

Older versions are available via the alternate download location at MS TechBench here:

Burn to DVD using WIndows Image Burner or create bootable flash using one of the options here:

Then following the gold standard Clean Install in this link which compiles the best possible Install of Windows which will stay that way as long as you stick with the tools and methods given, has zero reported problems, and is better than any amount of money could buy:
