    I'd be buying the game from Steam, but after doing some digging I believe Xbox Live components need to be installed and I'm not going to bother doing that.

    Anyway, thanks.

    I would stay on a LTSB 2016 14393 v. 1607 getting nearly 4 years of extended support up October 2026. Overally it would be a heavier than Windows 8.1 while LTSC 2021 would be surely heavy as remarked implicitly by @Enthousiast. Anyway that CPU is quite slow even for normal browsing on modern web pages, plus 8 GB (and a SSD) would be mandatory for Windows 10.

    I own an old notebook with N3540 2.16Ghz, 8GB RAM, SSD currently on Windows 8.1 Pro and I am planning that path, too. But I am not optimist about the net-net result in terms of decent performance.

    These CPUs are essentially Atoms and were good with WIndows XP, acceptable on Windows 7... but rebranded for late Windows 8.x builds with so-so user experience.
    Not sure whether a Linux Mint would be a better choice.

    Trying to optimize a stripped-down LTSC 2021 will not get produce the expected results you are hoping in terms of user experience. Stay with an older kernel such as that LTSB as the best acceptable choice.

    Hello,

    On my laptop with Intel duo core i7-3520M with 8 GB RAM and SATA SSD, LTSC 2021 boots up in 14 seconds.

    Please don't. Maybe I disabled too much service and scheduled task which I don't need in order to achieve this. Besides I flashed a modified bios too. After all everyone's needs different and according to those particular needs boot times can be different.
    But my MSI Pro DP21 11M mini pc boots up in 16.5 seconds after all optimisations I have made :evil:

    Are you sure you want normal Enterprise IoT or do you want LTSC IoT?

    Normal IoT is useless and you can better use non IoT Enterprise instead.

    I think it's about IoT LTSC, create_virtual_editions.cmd can make this edition from regular Enterprise LTSC edition: EnterpriseS -> IoTEnterpriseS

    Yes it's about IoT LTSC... I wanna see the difference between IoT ltsc and just a ltsc release...If there any special things I missed !!

    Best to just install Enterprise 2021 LTSC and switch to IoT Enterprise 2021 LTSC after install is finished, IoT Enterprise 2021 LTSC won't run setupcomplete or oobe cmd's, I always do it this way.
    Licensing and support time, nothing else.
