    So I have a windows 10 machine I got from the "salvage sales" part of my work.

    I want to know if there is a simple way to get the key off of it?

    It will only update to Version 1703 of Windows 10 as well, that's what it came with.

    Is there any possibility of determining if it is a LTSB install?

    I was going to overwrite the install with Ubuntu and install a seedbox script, which was the number one reason I got it.

    Thanks,

    Use the QT from here: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/multi-oem-retail-project-mrp-mk3.71555/

    If it came with 1703, it won't be a LTSB install. LTSB is 1507 or 1607.

    You beat me to the reply @Enthousiast lol although another shameless plug, yes the Query Tool will read out the MSDM key from the bios for you.

    When you save the report it will also save a 2nd file with the MSDM key within it and what Windows Version and Edition it was for such as Windows 10 Core/Pro etc. If the MSDM table is corrupt or not really there then the QT will say un-listed and no 2nd MSDM file will be created.

    Or open a Command Prompt and type:
    Code:
    wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductkey /value
    This will also read the OA3 Key (MSDM key if present). Although that not tell you what Edition the key was for just the key alone. The QT gives a lot more information. ;)

    Right click your start menu button
    Select "Run"
    type in: winver


    This will tell you what edition you have (Home, Pro, Enterprise, ect...). It may be good to know if you ever wish to switch back. ;) As previously said, you obviously do not have LTSB. If you really want Windows Enterprise LTSB, you can see my signature for a torrent you can download.

    I thought, it's not shameless for me to promote a great MDL original tool ;)
