    Is it possible to upgrade Windows 10 Pro to a Enterprise LTSB? If so, do I keep the settings,personal files and app,I try change edition by regfile but still I can't upgrade without losing my setting and app:

    Yes its possible, at least I did it on SN versions and it worked perfectly.

    Be sure the language of both OSes are the same, or you'l have to patch another registry.

    Keep in mind that doing so the store and all the "square" app would be retained for the already created users, only the new users will start clean.

    I don't think so, i did it on it_IT over it_IT, with no additional languages installed

    Dumb question, did you reboot after the registry change?

    I have not figured out how to do that. Every time I upgrade Pro to Enterprise LTSB I lose everything.

    The old trick shown on the first post always worked for me.

    The 1st post would need more details for me to understand it.

    edit: Only cause I don't know what the product ID would be for Windows Enterprise N LTSB would be. Maybe that's my problem... Upgrading normal pro to the N version of Enterprise.

    You can open the image with 7zip extract

    Windows/system32/config/software somewhere, load it as hive and see by yourself


    Anyway for LTSB N

    Edition id is "EnterpriseSN"

    and product id is "Windows 10 Enterprise N 2015 LTSB"

    P.S. I never changed the values on WOW6432Node, isn't needed according to my experience.
