    Sorry, my bad for the mistake.

    Do you need N versions, or x86? (I personally don't use Core except higher editions in Core style.)

    Q: Possible to convert Client to Server?

    Never seen on the web...

    1. packages
    2. winpe
    3. winre?

    Far too different, not worthy.

    Actually you can do it, but only with an online image. You can have any client version installed. By changing EditionID REG_SZ value to ServerStandard under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, you'll be able to "upgrade" to server using Windows Setup, and you can keep not only your setting and files, but your apps too (including Win32 and seemingly all UWP apps, except Microsoft Edge that will be removed during the upgrade process).

    It feels like cheating a bit, and I'm sure this will cause some bugs (for example you cannot unpin edge from the taskbar if the user profile existed before the upgrade), but it works.

    There's one important thing: the target's build has to be the same or greater compared to the current edition's build.

    You're welcome!

    I forgot to mention that server can also be upgraded to any client this way if it's needed, so it works vice versa. Or any client/server to Enterprise LTSB/LTSC.

    Note:
    1. Lite version is based on Core edition's Features.

    ltsc original -->Enterprise Features

    ltsc lite --> Core Features
