    Why should it be safer? because of the upgrade process?

    Just asking, just my logic seem to think the closer to, or even the original might be the better. That said, not because I know it unfortunately.
    I haven't looked at LoT yet, what would a reason to go that way excluding it being "long-live"

    Personal I have the 2021 I have been on the 2019 LTSC for me it's a must for support on hardware (brand new system) every thing works very good on my end but if you prefer to stick to the LTSC 2019 here you go :

    Good luck

    Create yourself an uptodate Enterprise 2019 LTSC ISO and mount it in explorer and run setup.exe, it should perform the inplace/repair upgrade.

    When there is no real need for upgrading to 2021 then 2019 is there to stay for a few years (2028).

    Thanks @endbase , though @Enthousiast nailed it for me.

    It will be a challenge for me after a quick look at the W10UI though will try it over the next day or two.
    Would it make sense to extract the OS updates list from the existing system and if so, is there a way other than over Programs and Features? This list might help to get the updates quickly?
    Does the repair install remove existing drivers?

    I haven't managed yet to get the W10UI.cmd to work as I get this error. Countless times I've tried to find a dot or a space somewhere.
    mine is: D:\W10UI\en-gb_windows_10_enterprise_ltsc_2019_x64_dvd_cd49b901
    Anyone of you knows where the knot is? The files are on an attached USB drive(D:\) though had the same trouble on my data HDD

    Best to call the extracted ISO folder: Work
    But this error is not about a dot or a space, i don't know why it shows that error, but please call the folder simple "work" and retry, maybe @abbodi1406 has an idea why that error is shown.

    same thing
    error with work.jpg
    I replaced the W10UI with the originally downloaded files W10UI and edited to suit, started the process, no error though unable to continue.
    Cleanup does not seem to work either as I have changed to 1

    You are targeting the online system not the WORK folder.

    Rename the ISO name folder to WORK and edit the cmd to target it

    something is just not working for me.
    settings and result.

    I did run SFC and chkdsk on this PC a couple of days ago and seemed to be ok.
    Could I try it on my friend's laptop, win10 home?
