Windows 10 Build 10130 ISO released, but the update hasn’t rolled out to the slow ring
Windows 10 Build 10130 ISO was officially released by Microsoft today.
Build 10130 was released through Windows Update for the Fast ring users, on May 30.
The Redmond company usually releases a Windows 10 Preview ISO, only if the update has been released for the Slow ring of the Windows Insider Program.This is to ensure that the Slow ring users do not run into any bugs, at least not any major ones.
However, today’s release of the Windows 10 Build 10130 ISO is an exception, because the update hasn’t rolled out to the Slow ring. Microsoft explains that it is releasing the ISO, because many Fast ring users are unable to update to the latest build due to a 0x80146017 error.
Earlier this week Microsoft’s Gabe Aul revealed that Build 10130 will be released to the Slow ring, but he did not give an ETA for the update. The reason why the update is delayed is because of not just one bug, but apparently several ones. Microsoft is working to squash these bugs, and will release the fixes to Windows Update. It is only after this is accomplished, that Build 10130 will be released to the Slow ring.
Fast Ring users can download Windows 10 Build 10130 ISO from Microsoft’s website. Click on the language of your choice, and choose the bit version you wish to install (32-bit or 64-bit).
You can then mount the downloaded ISO using File Explorer, or create a bootable usb for Windows 10, and update to Build 10130.
Note: Slow ring users can also download the ISO and update using it, but we do not recommend slow ring users to install the update yet. It is best to wait until Microsoft releases fixes for the issues.
There are several Known Issues in Windows 10 Build 10130. While most of the issues listed are minor issues, only some of the issues have workarounds, the other issues are yet to be fixed by Microsoft.
If you haven’t tried Windows 10 on your computer yet, you can do so by installing on a Virtual machine. We have a user friendly guide for that here.
Windows 10 will be released on July 29th, and will be offered as a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8.x users. Microsoft has begun notifying eligible Windows 7 and 8.x machines, asking users to reserve their free upgrade to Windows 10. Windows Insiders who are running the preview build of Windows 10, will be able to upgrade to the General Availability Build which will also be released on July 29.
