UPDATE 9/19: Windows 10 build 16278 ISO files are now available for download for anyone looking to test the new version doing a clean installation or in-place upgrade.
Microsoft is releasing the official ISO files of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update for enthusiasts and developers to get their hands early on features and improvements. This rollout is not meant to install the operating system in your main computer.
If you’re already a member of the Windows Insider Preview program, you don’t need to download the ISO files for build 16278, as you can simply use Windows Update from the Settings app.
Download Windows 10 build 16278 ISO files
Every time a new flight becomes available for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709), or for another version, you can now get the new build from this Microsoft website. However, Microsoft only makes available Windows 10 Insider Preview ISO files for builds released in the Slow ring (during Fast ring only occasionally).
Once you’re in the download page, you will need to choose the edition, and click Confirm to download. Once you finish downloading the official ISO file, you can use different tools, such as Rufus to create a USB bootable drive to install the operating system.
