Download Windows bypassing restrictions. There are several ways

Microsoft has limited the download of Windows for Russian users. Bypassing the ban is easy. There are two ways.

The main advantage of a licensed operating system image is its purity. Third-party builds can be stuffed with various improvements, and along with them, malware. Therefore, the most reliable way to download Windows is the official Microsoft website.

However, as users have noticed, for several days the official source has been giving an error that does not allow the system to boot. Luckily, getting around this problem doesn’t take much effort.

Download via VPN

To download the latest version of Windows or auxiliary utilities, you should go to the official Microsoft website. Before doing this, enable the VPN you are using. I use free ZenMate browser extension. Location selected Romania.

  • Download Windows 10
  • Download Windows 11
  • By pressing the “Download” button, select the desired system language. In our case Russian
  • Press the “Confirm” key, after which a key with the desired bit depth of the system will appear. Before pressing it, turn off the VPN so that the download is faster. If the speed has not increased. Try to pause the download and then resume.

Download without VPN

TechBanch provides the same ISOs by downloading them directly from Microsoft servers.

Go to the service website TechBanch
Select the desired version of Windows, its revision and language
When all fields are filled, press the “Download” button


In general, this method seemed to me more convenient than the official Microsoft website. However, you won’t be able to create a boot disk or USB flash drive for system storage here.

Officially, Microsoft did not announce the withdrawal from Russia, and perhaps the problem with downloading Windows is temporary. However, if you need to urgently reinstall the system, one of these methods will help with this.
