If you are about to install Windows 10 on your PC, you might want to know if your device is capable of running the latest operating system from Redmond. Version 2004 of Windows 10 has the same requirements as its predecessor, version 1909.
How to Install Windows 10 Version 2004 With Local Account
Starting with version 1909, Microsoft made it harder to install Windows 10 without a Microsoft Account. The same applies to today's released Windows 10 version 2004 'May 2020 Update'. The option is not available in the Out of Box Experience (OOBE) when you are setting up a new device. Here's how to install Windows 10 version 2004 with a local account.
How to delay Windows 10 version 2004 and prevent it from installing
A number of users are interested in delaying the upgrade to Windows 10 version 2004, also known as "20H1" and Windows 10 May 2020 Update. There are many reasons for this. Most users don't want to disturb their existing setup and do not want their custom settings getting reset again by the version 2004. Others would like to avoid compatibility issues. Here is the official way to postpone the upgrade to Windows 10 version 2004.
As Microsoft has finished Windows 10 version 2004 '20H1' development, the ISO images are now already available on MSDN. So, if you have an MSDN subscription, you can grab the files.
Starting in Windows 10 version 2004, Microsoft will no longer provide 32-bit ISO images to device vendors, significantly reducing the presence of 32-bit Windows 10 on the market. New devices running 20H1 will have 64-bit Windows 10 version only.
Microsoft today released a new 20H1 build, 19041.264, with KB4556803. The update is out to Windows Insiders in the Slow and Release Preview rings. This Cumulative Update includes quality improvements. Here's what's new in this patch.
As you may remember, there was indication that Windows 10 version 2004 was coming to the production branch on May 28, 2020. It looks like this is now sort of confirmed.
Microsoft will reportedly release Windows 10 May 2020 Update on May 28. Earlier, it was expected to come out on May 12, 2020, but there are suggestions that it has been delayed.
