    There are ISO's for the older builds on MSDN. You'd just have to stop it from auto upgrading to a newer one. Switch to the slow ring and you'll delay it some.

    Slow ring only delays the upgrade to some extent. As far as I know, moving either the whole Users folder or parts of it to another drive is the only way to deny / disable build upgrades permanently.
