        Yesterday, I created yet another Windows 10 Version 2004 x64 flash memory stick, and promptly installed it on a computer’s new SSD.  I routinely apply all updates after a fresh install, and I was surprised to find that there were only a handful of updates, none of which were of the large Patch Tuesday flavor.  The end result was a Windows 10 Home that occupied little more than 25GB, smaller than I have seen before.

        The clear and obvious question is whether Microsoft is regularly refreshing the Win 10 2004 ISOs, slipstreaming in all the updates to date?  The evidence leads me to believe this, but it would be good for someone in the know at Microsoft to confirm this.  For those of us who regularly install Windows 10 on a fresh hard drive or SSD, this would be good to know.

        when it comes to integrating or “slipstreaming” updates for any Win10 version, ask in the MDL (My Digital Life) forums “Windows 10” section.

        the folks there are more knowledgeable about the matter than me – I was able to make updated Win10 v2004 USB install media that has the July 2020 updates for v2004 integrated.

        Is it REALLY worth the effort?
        Unless there are lots of installation seats involved, then probably but,
        with the timescales factored in, you’d only be pushed onto another version eventually that defeats the whole purpose of pursuing it for a couple of devices. IMO
