You can always bypass and install any build of Windows 11 on a virtual machine or unsupported PCs. For example, we regularly download and install Windows 11 Insider Preview build on Virtual machines. However, Microsoft denies updating Windows because Virtualbox does not support TPM 2.0 and Secure Boot functions. So, to use the latest version of Windows 11 on our VirtualBox, we regularly download Win 11 from the UUP Dump website.
UUP Dump allows you to download the latest Windows 11 ISO file for any preview build of Windows 11 available in the Dev or Beta channel. If your Windows PC is enrolled in the Microsoft Insider Preview program and includes all mandatory hardware, your Windows 11 will automatically download and install the latest builds. So, you will not need to download Windows 11 ISO for every build.
Microsoft also allows you to download Windows 11 ISO from its official website, but in most cases, you will not find the most recent builds, especially if it was released the same day.
On the other hand, using UUP Dump, you can get the latest builds almost immediately after release. The tool fetches and downloads individual builds packages from the Microsoft servers and creates an unofficial ISO file that you can use to install on your machines.
In this gearupwindows article, you will learn to use the UUP Dump tool to download the latest build of Windows 11 ISO.
