Microsoft pulls Windows 10 November upgrade from its download server

Microsoft pulls Windows 10 November upgrade from its download server

According to reports, software giant Microsoft pulled the latest, November-released Windows 10 upgrade from its download server last week.

As a result of the move, the Windows Update servers have apparently stopped delivering the Windows 10 November upgrade package as a disk image; thereby shuttering the mechanism which Windows users were using to avoid the wait due to Microsoft’s gradual roll out of the refresh through Windows Update.

Though Microsoft has yanked the Windows 10 November upgrade from its download site, the .iso files -- which thus far installed the November upgrade -- are still available. However, those files, when downloaded with the help of Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, now install the original version of Windows 10 OS launched on July 29 this year.

Against the backdrop of the fact that the manual tool for installing the Windows 10 November upgrade has downgraded to the original Windows 10 release, Microsoft said in a statement released in a revised page dedicated to downloading Windows 10 when viewed from a Windows PC: "These (.iso files) downloads cannot be used to update Windows 10 PCs to the November update (Version 1511)."

Reports about Microsoft’s move to remove Windows 10 November upgrade from its download site recently started appearing on the company’s support discussion forum. On one thread, Berk Babadogan said that the Windows 10 November Update ISO is no longer available on Microsoft's download website, and added: “Only RTM ISO (Build 10240) available.”
