How to Download the Windows 11 Insider ISO Without Joining the Insider Program
If you want to try out the Windows 11 Insider build without actually joining the Insider program, there are ways to get around it.
The Windows Insider program lets you try the latest Windows 11 features before being released to the public. While anyone can be a Windows Insider, you first must join the Insider Program to be eligible to test one of the beta channels.
But there are some restrictions. To join the Windows Insider program, you need to use your Microsoft Account. Also, officially you can only use the latest version of the build.
You can resolve this problem by downloading the Windows 11 Insider ISO without joining the Insider Program. Here we show you how.
How to Download Windows 11 Insider ISO Using UUP Dump
UUP Dump is an online tool to create Windows 11 Insider ISO files. You can input the build version, ISO edition, and language to create a download configuration. Once you run the configuration script, it will download the necessary files from Microsoft servers and create an ISO file.
Here’s how to use the UUP Dump tool to download Windows 11 Insider Preview build ISO files without joining the Windows Insider Program.
Note that you can also use UUP Dump to download ISO for public release builds, but there are easier ways to download Windows 11 ISO legally.
- Go to the UUP Dump home page.
- Under Quick Options, select your insider build. Next, click on x64, x86 or arm64, depending on your system configuration. You can also manually search for the older builds using the search bar.
- Next, click on the link for the available build.
- Select your preferred language for the build and click Next.
- Select all the Edition of the OS you want to include in the ISO file.
- Click Next to continue.
- Select the Download and convert to ISO option under the Download methods section.
- Leave the Conversion options as default to Include updates (Windows converter only). You can view the additional build information, including the language, edition, and total download size, under Summary for your selection.
- Click on Create download package. It will download a Zip archive file to your PC.
- Right-click on the Zip Archive and select Properties.
- In the Properties window, select the Unblock option in the Security section. Unblocking the archive file is important as Windows may block some files to protect your PC when you run the script.
- Click Apply and OK to unblock the file.
- Right-click on the unblocked Zip archive and select Extract All. Select a location to extract and click Extract.
- Open the extracted folder and double-click on the uup_download_windows.cmd file. Click Yes when prompted by User Account Control.
- UUP Dump will run the script and download the necessary files to create an ISO image. This may take some time, depending on your Internet connection speed.
- Once the download is complete, the Command Prompt window will turn blue, indicating UUP Dump is building the ISO image. This process again will take some time. So, wait until you see the Press 0 to exit button.
- Once done, press 0 to exit Command Prompt.
You can find the ISO image in the extracted folder. You can use it to create a bootable USB drive to install Windows 11 insider preview on a virtual machine or another PC.
As discussed earlier, if you encounter any errors when downloading the ISO, make sure you have unblocked the Zip archive file before extracting it.
Additionally, Internet Service Providers may block the UUP Dump website in some regions. You can use the UUP Dump proxy to bypass this restriction.
