Size of Windows 10 10586/1511 Upgrade Files? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is the Windows 10 upgrade that's designed for upgrading Windows 10 10240 to 10586 a different package than the upgrades for Windows 7 and 8.1?

    Does anyone know what the sizes are and if the 10240 to 10586 upgrade a significantly smaller and faster to install package than install.wim file on the Windows 10 10586 DVD IS0?

    Is there much time saved doing Windows 10 10240 to 10586 upgrades via WSUS vs doing the same upgrade by running setup.exe?

    Window7 and windows 8.1 use the same win10 upgrade file.

    The upgrade file is around 3G, each edition may have a little difference.

    I didn't test if using WSUS server to upgrade to win10 10586 is faster than using DVD ISO. As far as I'm concerned, WSUS server provides a way for clients to download the upgrade file, after downloading the file, the installation process may related with the client's performance.

    If you are using WSUS server in your environment, then you may use WSUS server to upgrade clients, in this way, you do not to insert DVD manually in each computer, WSUS may be more convenient.
