    Tech Bench website appears to be dead. All I get is "We are sorry, the page you requested cannot be found. The URL may be misspelled or the page you're looking for is no longer available."

    I had to download the ISO directly as the media creation tool kept on failing or freezing. It doesn't appear to work well when the internet connection is slow or goes offline.
