    No, (IoT) Enterprise 2021 LTSC is 21H2 aka 19044.1288+ and will stay at 21H2.

    MSFT can move in mysterious ways but based on current knowledge there won't be a 22H2 LTSC.

    LTSC = Long Term Servicing Channel. Means it does NOT get every feature update!

    LTSB 2015 is build 10240 (TH1)
    LTSB 2016 is build 14393 (RS1)
    LTSC 2019 is build 17763 (RS5)
    LTSC 2021 is build 19044 (21H2)

    LTSC will not get any 22H2 build! Next LTSC will be W11 based.


    And Enth ninja-posted again... :oops:

    Thanks for both the quick replies! I'm glad to hear I can just keep the system I've got.

    Any guess at when W11 LTSC will appear?

    Probably not before 2024 or 2025, together with or close to the new Server release (Server has the same licensing and release cadence).

    Activated the LTSB 16 copy via massgravel github method but after running the iot LTSC 21 iso it's asking for a product key.

    I've also tried to change the product key and disconnected from the internet but the key wasn't recognised as I thought this may have been the problem.

    Thank you to anyone who can help

    Sorry but it wont even progress into the install phase. It just gives me this window.

    Apologies as I can't post a picture yet on my account but above is a screenshot of the product key message before I can proceed with the iso install.

    Thank you again

    Don't use the IoT SKU/ISO but the normal Enterprise 2021 LTSC ISO and it should work fine, after the upgrade is finished use MAS to activate it, it should convert it to IoT Enterprise 2021 LTSC during the activation procedure.

    If that still doesn't skip the key then put in this ei.cfg in the ISO:\sources folder (extract the ei.cfg first from the rar);

    Can't download. Tried multiple browsers. Network error & secure connection failed. Would like the latest LTSC & LTSC N version possible. Not sure what the difference is. Why not have torrent links.

    There is just one ISO build released and it's this one.

    I found it. This ISO comes with no updates, right? I am going to use MSMG toolkit to add updates, remove pkgs, features, and etc.
