Microsoft pushes Windows 10 build 10130 to Slow ring members

Microsoft has published the ISO files Windows 10 build 10130, allowing intrepid users to install the latest build from a DVD or flash drive. However, going against previous protocol, Microsoft is not pushing build 10130 to the Slow ring via Windows Update just yet. In a blog post announcing the release, Microsoft explained the change as the result of a bug impacting Fast ring users who got the update last week:

Hi everyone, today we are releasing the ISOs for Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10130. We are not, however, releasing Build 10130 to the Slow ring due to several bugs we're looking to fix. Once we have these fixes in hand and ready to push out to Windows Update, we'll consider pushing Build 10130 to the Slow ring. I know we said we would only release ISOs if we push a build to the Slow ring but we're making a special exception today. We know that a bunch of Windows Insiders on the Fast ring are currently blocked getting to the latest build due a 0x80146017 error. With the ISOs, they can mount the image and upgrade directly from the ISO and get unblocked.

In any event, if you're on the Slow ring and don't mind doing a bit of extra work, or a Fast ring user afflicted by the above bug, you can grab the ISO file from the source link below. If you're curious about what this build brings to the table — including some tweaks to the start menu, Cortana, and Microsoft Edge — be sure to check out our roundup of everything you need to know about Windows 10 build 10130.

Thanks for the tips!
