Where to find 23h2 Windows install ISO file?


no need to use UUPDUMP to build an updated ISO install media

Microsoft recently released 22631.2861 (aka. 23H2 "V2") ISOs on the Windows 11 downloads page.
updated ISO download names will have something like "Win11_23H2_English_x64v2.iso" or so
Note the same file will have a different name depending upon how you get it.
If you download it directly from that site it will be called: Win11_23H2_English_x64v2.iso
If you use the Media Creations Tool to download it, it will be called: Windows.iso

In both cases its file size will be 5.27 GB (5,662,572,544 bytes).

Unsure, why mine is different – maybe because it is Windows 11 (multi-edition ISO for x64 devices)

The 1st option only has one choice, Windows 11 (multi-edition ISO for x64 devices). The 2nd option is the Product Language. For that I selected English (United States). If you selected a different Product Language that would explain the different file size.

    Upgraded from Windows 10 Home to Windows 11 Home on 28 Oct 2023
They finally got this up? Good. I think I need to do an in-place upgrade (repair). This will help.

I'm also gonna build one via UUPDUMP for my exact installed edition, use that first.
UUPDUMP now it's working decently again is probably the best source of current iso's.

Even if you can't get an edition in your language you can always install languages afterwards. Plenty of additional languages.

Cheers
jimbo

My iso also has been like @ProgEngi - Win11_23H2_English_x64v2 and that’s been since September 2023. I’m not an insider. And the file size and naming is exact. I have never need an option to chose different iso, just languages.
