    This is would be for someone who downloaded the ISO via the Rufus program. I am looking for the SHA256 hash of Windows 11 64-bit 22H2 ISO US-EN (English) downloaded via Rufus program. I missed the download in October.

    I want to see what the SHA256 hash should be.

      You could download directly from MS here and then compare the hash.

      Today it is giving out 23H2 ISO as in November; the 23H2 hash is provided if you click on the Verify button. I was hoping someone with a 22H2 Rufus download could  run a SHA256 hash for me.

      Found the SHA256 for Windows 11 22H2 ISO at a Microsoft website:

      English International 64-bit
      English 64-bit

      If anyone can confirm they see the same hashes, it would be good.

        Note 4 hex characters are missing in each of the hashes. Please refer to the Microsoft web site for the full hash.

      Hash will be different depending on whether the iso is the Win11_22H2_English_x64v1.iso or the Win11_22H2_English_x64v2.iso which was released ~May 2023. I downloaded the Win11_22H2_English_x64v2.iso from MS in June 2023. The value of my SHA256 hash from that download was 8059A99B8902906A90AFE068AC00465C52588C2BD54F5D9D96C1297F88EF1076
      Does this match your download from Rufus?
      Based on the date in your link (March 2023), they are showing the hashes from Win11_22H2_English_x64v1.iso

      I was looking for the SHA256 hash to check on some ISOs. This did not match my Win11_22H2_English_x64.iso so I don’t consider my ISO good. Rufus does not work well for me, so I have been using another source, Wayback Machine (archive.org)

      The one hash that matches up, is the Windows 11 English International version 1, Win11_22H2_EnglishInternational_x64v1.iso. There is also Win11_22H2_EnglishInternational_x64v2.iso but I don’t have the hash to verify it is authentic.

      My most successful search was by date: https://archive.org/search?query=date%3A2022-09-20+iso

        You can go here to download a Windows 11 22H2 English ISO version

        I found that with Windows English language versions there are two: English (US) and English (UK).
        The version upgrade has to be same as the existing installed version otherwise the upgrade will abort with a wrong version error message.


        There are several other download sites that offer back dated Windows OS versions.

          I would never use a Windows ISO that did not come direct from MS.
          The ones on the ittechs site appear to be hosted by ittechs.

            Paul T: You make a good point.

            I need 2 pieces of information to be sure, the file is the same:
            1) file size
            2) SHA256 hash

            There is a small chance the file could be manipulated to come up with the same SHA256 hash. Yes I did not check the file size so I am taking a risk.

          Gordski: The file Win11_22H2_English_x64v1.iso matches up to the hash posted by Microsoft.

        Hello @KP, How is your quest going to find the hashes for the isos? I noticed, as I am sure you did that archive.org sometimes lists the hash. In the future I plan to copy & save the hashes from MS along with my saved isos. Recently I did have a bad download directly from MS for the Win 11 23H2 English iso. I noticed that there was a problem because the size of the iso was smaller than it should have been. Sure enough, the hash was incorrect, so I re-downloaded that iso from MS.
        Is the Win11_22H2_EnglishInternational_x64v2.iso the only hash you need to verify now?

          The hashes match up for the Win11_22H2_EnglishInternational_x64v1.iso and the iTechtics’ Win11_22H2_English_x64v1.iso files.

          Windows 11 is still pristine and has only been on the internet for a few minutes to setup. I will make a backup, before going on the internet again. Other software has been downloaded via another PC so it doesn’t need the internet, until I get my preferred security on.

          Windows 11 Privacy section in the AKB 2000022 which I will have a look at.

      I will leave this open to the end of the month before closing to resolved.

      Thanks everyone.
