  1. yup. the aug 2018 w7 isos were truly oversized (overrated) and badly made Win7 has already past EOL yesterday 1/14/2020 Feb. 1, 2020 is a Saturday though
  2. yup, 1909 ISO download links now working on my end. don't pay attention to the xml files inside install.wim, jvidal. many of the 1909 system files are actually build 18362.x versions. also 1909 = 1903 SP1 read the following from this blog: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Windows-IT-Pro-Blog/Windows-10-version-1909-delivery-options/ba-p/1002660
  3. is it November 12th in your area, Jan Krohn? because it is not (at least not yet in the USA) MS could post the 1909 ISOs most likely during their normal patch Tuesday schedule (11/12 pacific standard time on their watch, not yours nor mine)
  4. well SnowBall, only the home & professional editions of win10 v1703 have been out of support since last year (October 2018) but Microsoft will retire v1703 support for the enterprise & education editions this October 2019 but downgrading to 1703 regardless is not a good long-term solution and the "refreshed" versions of 1903 are pretty stable now btw - the MediaCreateTool1903.exe file currently downloads build 18362.356 ESD files (1903 Sept 2019 refresh) and not the older ones
  5. the problem is on Microsoft's end and not with the Windows ISO Downloader tool as they have not yet posted the actual 1903 V2 ISO downloads. Edit 10/2: so wait until Thursday morning (Oct. 3) or next Tuesday (Oct. 8 ) and try again by any one of those future dates even the Techbench by WZT (tb rg adguard) site is also currently having non-working 1903 V2 ISO links Edit 10/3 - try downloading the 1903 V2 ISOs now as of Thursday Oct. 3, 12:45pm pacific local time - they are up now
  6. I do sometimes - I got the last batch of DVD+RW discs from my local Staples store in southern California at the end of August and I sometimes burn those original Win7 SP1 ISO images (not the Aug 2018 ones) onto rewrite-able DVDs. for the Aug 2018 Win7 ISO images, dual layered DVDs (DVD+R DL) are required as I also got those earlier in the year - also from Staples. sometimes the SHA-2 only updates (like the KB4474419 update originally released back in March 2019) for Win7 get revised to fix newly discovered problems with it [KB4474419 got a V2 release in August and now got a V3 release this September]. so just install the revised KB4474419 update along with the latest servicing stack update for Windows 7 (minimum KB4490628 update but that update has been replaced by the KB4516655 update this September) and you're all set.
  7. the Aug 2018 Win7 downloads are "standalone" edition downloads (only come with Home Premium, Pro & Ultimate as separate editions and not bundled together) that include IE11 & .NET 4.7.2 but are available in US English language only. all post sp1 updates except the big KB3125574 rollup update are included btw, Oct. 1 is a Tuesday - less than a week away from now
  8. final version of 1903 MCT. though now the media creation tool is downloading a recent 1903 refresh (with build 18362.239, not 18362.30)
  9. is this an RTM version (no service packs integrated?)
  10. I believe Zeldaww wants the Windows 10 April 2018 version (aka. 1803)
  11. this tool has been re-posted by Microsoft recently 5/21 AND with the updated products.xml file that can download & create the 1903 ISOs which are build 18362.30
  12. Microsoft has just posted the 1903 ISOs on the Windows 10 downloads page as of Tuesday May 21, which have build 18362.30. However v8.12 & v8.13 of the Windows ISO Downloader tool list 1903 as the "Windows 10 April 2019 Update" which is not correct. I'll wait for v8.14 or higher, which should have the proper description of 1903 as the "Windows 10 May 2019 Update" like the one mentioned recently on the Win10 download page
  13. for XP no for Vista, yes (my brother & I bought a Dell Inspiron e1405 laptop for my mom back in mid-2007 which did come with a Dell OEM DVD disc of Vista Home Basic 32bit edition); if you mean provided by a "download" then probably not
  14. also some Win7 users prefer obtaining the smaller "security-only" updates on their own and not the big security monthly rollups edit: I also have to point out that the Aug 2018 Win7 ISO downloads do not contain ei.cfg as the Aug 2018 Win7 ISO images are standalone editions that do not contain other editions
  15. 1903 ISOs have been recently released to MSDN subscribers TH April 18 https://www.neowin.net/news/the-windows-10-may-2019-update-is-now-available-on-msdn don't know if Windows ISO Downloader tool can obtain these from MSDN as someone recently asked in another forum 1903 MCT pulled until late May public release
  16. about these "leaked" Win7 ISO images Jan: I've downloaded them thru a cable internet connection weeks ago and these ISOs also include .NET Framework 4.7.2 and Internet Explorer 11 (and their corresponding patches for Aug. 2018). the win7 "telemetry" updates (like KB2952664) can be uninstalled after installing Win7 with these leaked ISOs as the "uninstall" option for many of these telemetry patches is available in the "Installed Updates" list in the Programs and Features control panel app.
  17. and fixed by downloading the newly released 8.08 version. delete and dump the 8.07 version immediately & use v8.08
  18. hi Jan. the v8.08 version works great. I can download any Win10 ISO again unlike the previous & buggy v8.07 version which could not download any win10 iso but can download win7 or 8.1 isos
  19. where can v8.06 be downloaded? Heidoc.net site offers latest version only (v8.07)
  20. Microsoft has re-released the 1809 ISO downloads today November 13th but v7.11 of the Windows ISO downloader tool is downloading the "original" 1809 ISO downloads with build 17763.1 instead of the "re-released" versions with build 17763.107. And the revised ISO 1809 downloads have new names
  21. the original 1809 downloads are still available with the latest Windows ISO Downloader tool but now has a Warning message next to it because Microsoft found numerous problems with the 1809 release (seems like MS really rushed this version) and has temporarily halted offering them on their web site
  22. It looks like Microsoft will be retiring their Hotfix Service, meaning no more getting individual hotfixes for Windows. Details mentioned in these recent articles: https://www.ghacks.net/2018/11/05/microsofts-hotfix-service-is-no-longer-available/ https://borncity.com/win/2018/11/06/is-microsoft-killing-fixit-solution-and-hotfix-download-service/ https://news.softpedia.com/news/microsoft-might-have-killed-off-windows-hotfixes-523605.shtml
  23. nearly all Win7 downloads with v6.00 & higher of the Windows ISO downloader tool are working recently
  24. Here's the real Windows 10 Spring 2018 download option - posted April 30, 10am Pacific Daylight time (using IE, not the Windows ISO downloader tool which needs updating to show the "proper" name of the recent Win10 update):
  25. no either. installing Win7 on UEFI systems is tricky. read this MS blog on how to do this: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/askcore/2011/05/31/installing-windows-7-on-uefi-based-computer/
