    1. The SKU list from the ESD is generated by ESD>ISO by @abbodi1406. MVS is MyVisualStudio, the new name for the old MSDN.
    2.

    - MCT creates ISOs with install.esd (30-33% decreased filesize), originally the MCT only creates Consumer ISOs (containing less SKUs then the MVS ISOs)
    Code:
    Name: Windows.iso
    Size: 4269735936 bytes (4071 MiB)
    
    - SVF (as we use it) creates official MVS ISOs with install.wim
    Code:
    Name: en_windows_10_consumer_editions_version_1909_x64_dvd_be09950e.iso deleted the pro-work and pro-edu SKUs)
    Size: 5216632832 bytes (4974 MiB)
    
    - Manual ESD>ISO conversion can create ISO with either, install.esd or install.wim
    Code:
    Name: 18363.418.191007-0143.19H2_RELEASE_SVC_REFRESH_CLIENTCONSUMER_OEMRET_X64FRE_EN-US.ISO with install.wim
    Size: 5087012864 bytes (4851 MiB)
    
    - UUP dump
    Code:
    Name: 18362.418.191005-1654.19H1_RELEASE_SVC_PROD1_CLIENTMULTI_X64FRE_EN-US.ISO with install.wim / no cleanup
    Size: 5388079104 bytes (5138 MiB)
    
    Code:
    Name: 18362.418.191005-1654.19H1_RELEASE_SVC_PROD1_CLIENTMULTI_X64FRE_EN-US.ISO with install.wim / cleanup used
    Size: 4721203200 bytes (4502 MiB)
    
    Code:
    Name: 18362.418.191005-1654.19H1_RELEASE_SVC_PROD1_CLIENTMULTI_X64FRE_EN-US.ISO with install.wim / resetbase used
    Size: 4588924928 bytes (4376 MiB)
    
    To compare, you should create a single SKU ISO from all three methods (UUP dump can create it without any manual interference) or 3 times the exact same SKUs.

    All Consumer and Business SKU's can be activated by HWID, Key or KMS (and probably by MSDM too).

    3. 1909 is a registry only build, explained in simple words in the link i posted. You have to ask @abbodi1406 for the fast method of the build determination of ESD>ISO (he posted it in the ESD Repository thread).

    ps, the create_virtual_editions.cmd doesn't recognise the major build nr correctly (known issue).

    Really? You are saying that an install of Windows Pro from the consumer ISO can activate against a KMS server?

    If so this is different behavior than I remember from earlier versions of Windows where you needed to ensure you had a version that accepted a VLK.

    If this is true, what product Key would you install to authenticate against the KMS?

    Thanks

    I linked to the official MSFT website, containing all available gVLKs.

    Afaik, with 7 pro (vista probably too) it was the same, the key is leading for what channel is selected.

    Yeah, when you state it like that I get it. I must have had some type of block against phrasing yesterday, because now that I understand your meaning, the meaning of the MS quote also seems to be perfectly clear. If you just assume they mean "retail"=="stand alone" then both your quotes make sense both logically and factually.

    I also see this now. I did click on the Spoiler links, but I had been looking at /dlv output all day and my mind was being instantly drawn to the middle of the block of text to verify GVLK.
    As I assumed what I was looking at what a /dlv readout, I didn't even bother looking for the product key because slmgr doesn't post the full one.
    What did you use to generate that output?

    Why no LTSC or LTSB?

    Yeah, I know, I'm the guy that posted why no sticky thread. I just don't get why there isn't even en-us iso at least. Not for all languages, just en-us at least.

    LTSB/C is not available directly from MSFT, like ESD/UUP or Techbench ISOs. For en-US by SVF you only need the en-US Consumer ISO and the en-US LTSC SVF patch.

    Or at my LTSC Repo's, the LTSC EVAL en-US ISO and the en-US LTSC SVF patch (my repos are not in the OP of this thread because they are not complete, 17763.316 is missing).
