Microsoft has released today the first official Windows 11 ISOs for Insiders interested in doing a clean install or in-place upgrade of the OS. ISOs for the Windows 10 Insider build 22000.132, which was released last week, can be found on the Windows Insider Preview Downloads page.

If you use these ISOs to install Windows 11, you’ll notice the redesigned out-of-box experience which now allows users to name their PC during the setup process. A new Get Started app will also launch on the first-run experience to help users set up their new PC.

You can now name your device directly within the Windows 11 setup experience (OOBE).

In case you missed it, Microsoft also released today the Windows 11 build 22000.160 for Insiders in the Dev and Beta channel today, but there are just minor differences compared to last week’s build 22000.132: Microsoft has disabled estimates for how long a restart for updates would take on PCs with HDDs to fix some bugs, and there’s also a fix for the “location in use” icon in the taskbar.
