    Hi AllCan anyone tell me how I license Windows 10 Enterprise when I have an E3 license?What ISO do I use for Windows 10? I previously tried to activate Windows 10 by just signing in to my account on the machine but it did not activate. What is the correct procedure?

  3. Does M365 E3 license (trough EA/Volume licensing) also give right to Win 10 Enterprise LTSC (IOT)?

    Thanks Carl!

    Diving deeper on this, I come to the following:

    1. Having M365 E3 at itself gives right to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise.
    2. The Product terms clearly exclude lower editions like Win 10 Ent LTSB/LTSC (which is apparently the same as the IOT) when it comes to certain M365 Suites like the F and the Business suite. No such exclusions are present for the E3 or the E5. Knowing the
      IOT is a bit "dressed down" version of the Win 10 ENT, the Win 10 Enterprise should give you the right to opt for the Win 10 IOT Ent. edition, if you do not have a plan that specifically excludes this.
    3. The right to upgrade using the Win 10 Enterprise Upgrade option in your E3 suite, assumes there is an underlying OEM/qualifying license for your OS.
    4. The Win10 Qualifying OS guidelines state:

      The following operating systems qualify for the Windows 10 Pro Upgrade and/or
      Windows 10 Enterprise Upgrade through Microsoft Volume Licensing
      :
    5. Followed by a list of OS' that are required and give right to perform an upgrade via the Win 10 Enterprise Upgrade option in your suite (in this case the M365 E3 suite).

    So I would say based on this that it is possible to upgrade to Win 10 IOT Enterprise/LTSC if you also comply with the Qualifying OS list.

    So for example:

    - if you have Windows 7 Embedded POSReady devices, then you cannot upgrade these via the the E3 to either Windows 10 Enterprise or Windows 10 IOT Enterprise, as it is not a qualifying OS.

    - if you have Windows Embedded 8.1 Pro, you should be able to upgrade to either Windows 10 Enterprise or Windows 10 IOT Enterprise, as it is a qualifying OS.

    Or I am completely wrong and missing something essential here...

  4. How to license Windows 10 Enterprise with an E3 license

    Does M365 E3 license (trough EA/Volume licensing) also give right to Win 10 Enterprise LTSC (IOT)?

    If your company has M365 E3 subscriptions, this includes the right to upgrade to Windows 10 Enterprise.

    Does this also mean that it includes the right to upgrade to Windows 10 IOT Enterprise LTSB/LTSC
    editions, rather than to Win 10 Enterprise?

    If yes, where can I find this explicitly in the terms?

    The text is unclear.

    The Product Terms only mention that M365 F1 and M365 Business have limited Windows 10 use rights, and they exclude Win 10 Enterprise LTSC.

    What is the situation for M365 E3?

    And IF M365 E3 does not give this right to use Win 10 IOT Enterprise, and these have to be acquired seperately, in that case:

    - Where/under what program to obtain these seperate licenses?

    - What does that mean for the E3 licenses previously assigned to these devices ('s users)?
