Microsoft is all set to roll version 2004 with the title “May update 2020″ to the public starting the same month. What’s interesting is that it has some nice updates and features.
The version is finally available to download and the build version is 19041.264 (v2004); in other words, if you install this build, you’ll have windows 10 version 2004, which is already being rolled to devices.
How to Install Windows 10 may update 2020
Microsoft already tested version 2004 in both slow and fast rings of insider preview. (slow ring gets slow updates and fast gets quickly). You can easily find
Method 1. Build Windows 10 2004 (19041.264) ISO
What if I tell you that you can build the latest edition ISO on your computer using all the original files. So basically it is a script that downloads all the necessary files (UUP) from Microsoft server and then converts it to ISO file, so you will always get the latest version of the window.
The build is the final 2004 RTM release, which Microsoft will push starting May month. Fortunately, you can build the ISO at your home, boot, and install Windows 2004 right now.
If you use this method, less bandwidth will be used and more computer power is used to compile UUP files to ISO. (But it’s comfortable as the script will do everything once started). I’ll upload a video soon, watch that to get familiar with the process.
