Upgrade Windows 10 Enterprise from Version 10.0 (Build 10240, AKA 2015 LTSB) to Something More Modern RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have three Windows 10 Pro Build 10240 or 2015 LTSB boxes that need to be placed on a more modern version of Windows 10 Enterprise.  I'd like to get them onto 2004/19041, but cannot get them to make the jump via Windows Update.

    I tried the Windows 10 Update Assistant and have found that CPU, Memory, and Disk Space are all OK.  Red splatted is "Operating System: Contact your system administrator to upgrade Windows Server or Enterprise editions."

    What should I try next?

  • LTSC upgrade to Enterprise edition, image upgrade is the only method, Windows Assistant can’t work on this scenario.

    You need to get an Windows 10 Enterprise 2004 iso to make it, this image can be downloaded from VLSC or other place, but cannot be downloaded from Media Creation tool.

    Upgrade steps:

    1.get 2004 Enterprise iso

    2.mount iso and click setup.exe

    3.follow the guide to upgrade.

  • OK, that's what I've been getting close to concluding.  Where does one find out how these various upgrade paths work?  I've been Googling around and saw some hints that indicated that this might be the case, but others thought that other routes might work.  I never did find anything from Microsoft on this point.
