    I downloaded the Win10 US english x64 ISO (which has both Pro and Home in it) off links mentioned on official MS windows blog, where you go to "Get Windows 10" link then download the media creation tool to get the ISO.

    My question is: what's the checksum (SHA-1 and/or SHA-256) of the ISO created/downloaded by the tool? It does not match the SHA-1 checksum mentioned on MSDN website so I'm guessing (hoping) the ISO may be updated since then.

    The values I'm getting are as follows - can anyone else confirm?

    SHA-1 : e53b1f0c0080d347f5f418e757d53c6175f09f02
    SHA-256 : 1cd9dd818a8ab91493dcef6e3d67d853057e360a6985b3259de8cc8317781029

    Hey vishalrao,
    I created it just yesterday using the tool and here's the values of my iso, checked with HashCalc-

    MD5 : ad60a4f3b57d5738038e4e3ef2905e38
    SHA-1 :22878788b8f47e36191584f833bb4b9f39f2c0b6

    Even I haven't a clue where to check its integrity. If you come to know, then please reply to this message. Although I know that it must be an intact file as it was provided by Microsoft.

    Update: "Some people are asking for MD5, SHA1, SHA256 codes to verify their .iso however because the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool downloads files, checks them and then creates a .iso from them. There is no need to check whether the .iso is from a complete download. Moreover because the .iso is physically created on your computer the MD5, SHA1 and SHA256 codes will be unique."

    Yeah, if you use media creator tool it "assembles" the ISO and the file timestamps are updated causing checksums to be different for everyone who uses this tool.

    Only the full ISO itself if you download from MSDN etc will have the checksums which can be compared online.
