The day is finally here! Microsoft has released the first ever official Windows 11 ISO image, letting users clean install the upcoming operating system on either a dedicated system or in a virtual machine.
Up until now, the only official route for users was downloading the last available images of Windows 10 build 21354 and upgrading to Windows 11 from there. All other options were unauthorized by the company.
Now, there is no need of all this hoopla, as the official ISO packages for Windows 11 build 22000.132 are available for download.
Their availability marks another milestone for the development of the operating system, as Redmond inches near to the launch later this year. With preview builds now a regular occurrence on both the Beta and Dev channels, things are going smooth.
Those of you interested in grabbing these official ISO images can head on over to the Software Downloads page and select your desired files to clean install Windows 11.
In fact, the software titan is recommending users to do just that — perform clean installs of the operating system to try out the new out-of-box experience included in the operating system. The OOBE is, as a matter of fact, one of the fancier new features in the OS.
You can grab the files from the link below.
