    I don't think it possible to convert 10 PRO to LTSC / IoT
    check with this command.
    Code:
    dism /english /online /Get-TargetEditions

    you can do an in place upgrade. I did an in place upgrade from windows 10 Enterprise 21H2 to windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2021

    I did not lose anything and Microsoft store works

    I had to changed the edition id to EnterpriseS otherwise it would not let me do the in place upgrade. Enterprise is just a virtual edition. doing in place upgrade from pro to enterprise LTSC will work

    I Went from Semi Annual Channel to Long Term Servicing Channel by doing an in place upgrade

    Any idea why updating boot.wim with the latest preview CU results in Windows installation spitting out an error about missing drivers?

    Yes.
    You don't have to do anything, when the autorenewal option is used all will be handled by windows. Exclusions will keep it going yes.
    No, only licensing and time of support.

    Yes, mount the Enterprise 2021 LTSC ISO and run setup.exe.

    I tried using the latest W10UI and NTLite to update 19041.288 LTSC image with:
    Windows10.0-KB5013887-x64
    Windows10.0-KB5014023-x64
    Windows10.0-KB5014035-x64

    Normally, all files (not just install.wim and/or boot.wim) get updated and there is no problem. Am I missing any non-features updates? I only care for security and fixes, not features. Where exactly do I get the latest setup.exe and other files needed for fully functional install? Original boot.wim from 19041.288 lets me install without problems.
