Windows 11 has been out for a while now, and Microsoft has released Windows 11 Insider Preview builds via the Dev channel. So far, Microsoft has released quite a few Windows 11 builds in a weekly order. Previously, you were able to enroll in the Windows Insider Program to install the OS.
Microsoft rolled out the first Windows 11 Insider Preview build on the Beta channel at the end of last month. The builds in the Beta channel arrive in larger gaps than that of the Dev channel. Furthermore, the first Windows 11 beta ISOs are now available for download.
Earlier, users had to create their own ISOs from UUP Dump, which compiled fresh ISOs from Windows UUP files. The ISOs are the same Insider Preview builds that are flying in the Insider Program. Hence, they do not have the complete Windows 11 feature.
