How to verify Windows 10 version 2004 ISO file hash using PowerShell

Microsoft now provides SHA256 hash values to confirm the Windows 10 ISO file has not tampered with, corrupted, or altered from the original, and here's how to validate the download.

Windows 10 ISO hash check

Starting with the Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020 Update), Microsoft begins to offer hashes to help you verify the data integrity and authenticity of the Windows 10 ISO file download.

A hash is a mathematical signature (string of text) that’s calculated using a cryptographic algorithm (SHA-1, SHA-256, MD5) on a piece data. If any change occurs after the checksum was calculated the hash value of data will also change.

In this case, the SHA256 hashes that Microsoft provides allow to use PowerShell to verify that the Windows 10 ISO file you’re downloading hasn’t been tampered with or corrupted.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to verify the integrity and authenticity of the version 2004 ISO file on Windows 10.

How to verify Windows 10 ISO hasn’t been corrupted or tampered with

To verify the Windows 10 ISO checksum, use these steps:

  1. Open File Explorer.

  2. Navigate to the folder containing the Windows 10 ISO file.

  3. Type the following command in the address bar and press Enter:

    powershell

    File Explorer launch PowerShell
    File Explorer launch PowerShell
  4. Type the following command to check the SHA256 hash of the Windows 10 ISO file and press Enter

    Get-FileHash .\Win10_2004_English_x64.iso
    Get-FileHash command
    Get-FileHash command
    Quick tip: In the command, make sure to update the file name with the name correspond to your download.
  5. Confirm the hash result against the hashes provided by Microsoft. For example, A9EFD2329ED805A6A58E0E0101F9B22AD4031E80E2C663C571CD004DB26D2F31 should be the checksum result when checking the ISO file for the 64-bit architecture of the Windows May 2020 Update (English).

If the output matches, then you can confirm that the ISO file is not corrupted, and it’s authentic.
