What a wonderful group of selfless people. We can never have enough of you.

Have to attend a meeting but will study all advice in details as many times as possible.

But I have to tell them one of the following choices soon. I don't understand the second choice.

  • Load a generic/ready Image
  • Load an Image: WIM; Ghost; ISO; or ImageAssist
Please advise.
Many Thanks
The second option would be for them to install a custom image of Windows that you provided to them.

Correct me if I'm wrong but installing a custom image from one computer to another would be a recipe for disaster unless the computer hardware was identical.

Since Windows 10, it actually works, most of the time. Win 10 and 11 have a LOT of generic drivers.
They'll find the appropriate driver if the image doesn't have it.

I have one image that by now has successfully moved first from one machine to another, and from there to a third machine - all with completely different hardware. It started life as a Hyper-V VM install of Windows 11 then, when I wanted to native boot vhdx on a laptop. I copied the VM's .vhdx to the laptop. Subsequently I copied that laptop's .vhdx to another laptop.

In each case on first boot up after the move you see the spinning dots and the message 'loading drivers'. Then Windows reboots and starts up with a working set of drivers appropriate to the new hardware it finds itself running on.

Windows 11 Pro v 22H2 (Build 22621.1194)
You don't say which Dell Workstation you are purchasing. However, check to see if it is listed here -

Dell computers tested for update to Windows 11 build 22H2 and previous versions of Windows 11

If your new workstation is on the list, it has been tested with & will support Windows 11 v 22H2.

I've been running Windows 11 v 22H2, on Release Preview, since 7 June 2022 - the only issues I've encountered have been down to MS 'Release Preview' irritations; the GA version of Windows 11 2022 Update - Build(22621.525) - is extremely stable (subject to the normal 'Patch Tuesday' updates.

This doesn't sound to me like advice that would come from Dell. It appears to me that Dell has contracted someone to install their computer.
The guy is from Dell with @Dell.com address with many copies sent to his superiors with @dell.com.
But he admits the installation guy will be from a subcontractor.

Mine is Precision 5820 Tower workstation & seems to be listed.
Today, the guy from Dell said that it does not have 22H2 in Win-11 Pro for Workstation.

Cool. After you get it, you certainly should be able to accept the 22H2 over the Internet upgrade when it's offered by Microsoft.

What tech specs did you get?

OK without reading posts I can say regardless of what tech guy's say... You can upgrade to the latest as it's just security updates and somewhat features that no one will use I'm guessing. I mean if your in a company then by all means don't until they say to or whatever. My 2¢

Windows 11 Pro 22H2
Forgive me if I repeat something already said. Didn't have time to read every single post in this thread.

If Dell is suggesting to avoid 22H2 for the moment on this specific model, it's entirely possible that they simply have a specific piece of hardware in the system that currently has a blocking hold for 22H2. That's not a big deal at all, it simply means that a new driver is needed to sort the issue out.

In my opinion, that wouldn't prevent me from purchasing such a system at all. As soon as a corrected driver is available, you would be able to upgrade to 22H2.

The only time that would make a difference to me would be if there was another equivalent choice with no compromises, at the same price, that ran 22H2 perfectly today, no waiting needed.

Totally agree. Bree also mentioned a sound problem on Win 11 22h2.
Stay with Win 11 21h2 till it is offered to you by the update channel.
I had some issues with Win 11 22h2 and moved back to Win 11 21h2 but my computer has a "Not supported" hardware so it can't be used as a reference.

Windows 11 Pro 22H2
Because it may relate to this discussion, I thought that you might want to be aware that Microsoft has refreshed the ISO images from build 382 to 525. So, if you pull down the ISO from the Microsoft Media Creation web site again, it will now be the refresh.

I don't know this for sure, but suspect that this might fix some of the blocking holds (at least I hope that is the case!).

EDIT: Yes, I realize that some of the holds may need third party driver updates.

But they are asking me not to get Win-11 with 22H2 update because they say it is unstable so they are advising me to go for Win-11 without 22H2.
Perhaps they have not tested your model for 22H2 but are telling lies to cover up the fact.
Dell computers tested for ... [latest version] and previous versions of Windows 11
Since their list shows that they have tested some models, they cannot say that they believe 22H2 is unstable.

My own Dell Inspiron 7779 was not tested for Windows 10 Version 1803 when it was less than two years old. So I imagine the only Bios & driver updates I get these days are just the result of sharing the same hardware as models that do still pass the test.

Just for info, here is the corresponding Dell link for Windows 10.
Dell computers tested for ... [latest version] and previous versions of Windows 10

All the best,
Denis
