Download Windows 10 Enterprise Evaluation Build 1909 ISO from Technet does not look like 1909 but 1903 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I download the Windows 10 Enterprise Evaluation iSO from Technet for the release version 1909.

    Can I confirmed with you if this is really a 1909 version. 

    But when i install the iso. 

    The build number states as Build 18362.19h1_release.190318-1202

    is this the correct version build 1909 that i am installing from the iSO which I download from the Technet. 

    Can Microsoft please confirmed this. 

    As i get totally confuse over the matter.

  • Hi,

    The 18362.19h1_release.190318-1202 is Windows 10 version 1903, you can check the build number and which version they correspond over here:

    Windows 10 release information

    Windows 10 version 1909 has a build that starts with 18363, if you download the Windows 10 Enterprise evaluation from the official link below you will get the Windows 10 version 1909:

  • Hi Leon,

    There is something crop up with the iso download update. 

    The Windows 10 Enterprise Evaluation iso that I downloaded was at Technet.

    Somehow or rather the water mark indicate as Build 18362.19h1_release.190318-1202.

    And so I check by bring up the command prompt terminal and it indicate as 

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18363.476]

    Microsoft need to fix the water mark build version as it turn out to be the wrong one. 

    Because the iso that I download was so dead certain that it is a build version number 18363.476!

  • They might have simply just forgot to update the watermark, you can send feedback to Microsoft by using the feedback app so they are aware of this:

    The build version is correct though, and the proper way of checking the Windows build information is:

    Opening Run -> type: Winver

    Or type Winver in a Command Prompt / PowerShell window.

  • They didn't forgot, 18363 is fake build number, version 1909 is truely build 18362 just like version 1903

  • No, that is not correct. 18363 is not a fake. If you have a 18362 build number which is up to date you will be offered the Feature Update to Windows 10 version 1909. When you install that update your build number will change to 18363 . It contains the new features of the 1909 (or 19H2) version. Mine changed from 18382.476 to 18383.476 .

  • Changed virtually, all files are still 18362

    that's why all 1909 clients will show build 18362 in WSUS, and all 1909 installation media files (install.wim) will also show 18362

  • As the post(s) say,its Microsoft/Windows/Enterprise,the installation should run by default..However,its a Trial installation & runs for 90 days only....Not sure but its not a Windows 10 default OS,1903 would be Windows 10 OS default,as in a Retail version.Enterprise trial is not that type..


    Follow the Microsoft/MSDN link for Win 10 enterprise help...

    That has been known for quite some time. The team decided months ago that the 1909 upgrade would be delivered through Windows Update, not as a full system upgrade like 1903. The Insider program has been testing the delivery process for months.

  • This is the same with the MS Partner downloads (membership benefits, software) Win 10 64bit 1909

    Althought the ISO is labelled SW_DVD9_Win_Pro_10_1909_64BIT_Eng_Intl_Pro_Ent_EDU_N_MLF_X22-17394.ISO
    The internal install.wim version is 18362

  • I am updating my MDT image to 1909 and run into the above issue. The ISO I download from Microsoft that state it is 1909, contain Install.WIM that is 1903. I ran DISM with the exact same Version 10.0.18362.

    I run a very simple MDT that in normal circumstances just upload the new WIM and then run a Capture with that file and get a nice new version I can feed my production-images with. I have no clue why the WIM-file is 1903 when the ISO claims to be 1909.

    Anyone have a solution on getting a Install.wim that is 1909?
