Microsoft releases official Windows 11 Preview ISO Images

Finally, Windows 11’s first ISO images have been released, allowing PC enthusiasts to try out the next versions of Windows before its official release later this year. 

Before now, Windows 11 was only available as an upgrade option for Windows 10, making it difficult for many people to test the OS. Many people didn’t want to overwrite an existing Windows 10 install, making the official release of preview ISOs a welcome one for prospective testers. 

Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Builds for their developer and beta channels and an enterprise beta channel version. China-specific Dev channel and beta channel versions of Windows 11 are also available. 

Our recommendation is to try out Windows 11’s Beta Channel version for most testers, as it will be more stable than the OS’ Dev Channel release. That said, those who want to use their PCs for vital business use should probably stick to Windows 10, as the pre-release status of Windows 11 leaves it prone to crashes or other unexpected issues. 

Microsoft is no encouraging Windows 11 testers to utilise their Windows 11 ISOs to clean install their new OS, limiting the number of potential compatibility issues associated with upgraded Windows 10 systems. Clean Windows 11 installs will allow Microsoft to test Windows 11’s out-of-the-box experience, which will be vital as the OS approaches its official release later this year.  

Windows 11 ISO files are currently available to download from Microsoft here. To download Windows 11 ISOs, you must be a part of Microsoft’s Windows Insider Program.
