The ISO files for Windows 10 Insider preview build 14986 are now available to download (opens in new tab) direct from Microsoft. If you've been having problems with installing the latest build via Windows Update, doing a manual fresh install with the ISO is now an option.
Build 14986 initially rolled out to the Fast ring in early December, and made its way to the Slow ring just last week. The build packs an absolute truckload of new features to check out, ranging from Cortana improvements to inking features and much, much more. For a full rundown of what's new in this build, be sure to check out our announcement post.
If you're eager to install build 14986 manually and start testing out all of the new features, you can grab the ISO files now directly from the Downloads section of the Windows Insider site. Instructions for creating an install disk are included there as well.
