Windows 10 LTSC 17763.2114 - 20210911 - testing inside a vm.
Net 3.5 enabled, Net 4.8 and 5.0.9 installed. OS still has full networking and Printer/Scanner functionality.
Windows 10 LTSC 17763.2114 - 20210911a - Bareboned Services. No networking or Printer/Scanner functionality, airgapped.
This is LTSC 2021. LTSC 2021 looks about the same as 2019(1809) and should be capable of the same results, give or take a few each way taking new additions into account.
\Microsoft\Windows\Device Setup\Metadata Refresh
\Microsoft\Windows\Plug and Play\Device Install Group Policy
\Microsoft\Windows\Plug and Play\Device Install Reboot Required
\Microsoft\Windows\Plug and Play\Sysprep Generalize Drivers
\Microsoft\Windows\UPnP\UPnPHostConfig <-- i keep this for router and network audio player(using lan).
Note - LTSC 1809, .2114, Update Orchestrator task and service are linked, disable and stop the service then disable the task, the service will re-enabled the task otherwise. im expecting the same on 2021.
Clanger, can you share presets you used for those testings? Btw, I can't find LTSC 2021 on Microsoft website, I downloaded ISO version build 19044.1288 you recommended but it got me all editions for 21H2 exept enterprise one
chiefkief there is no preset because it was all done live and manually on a default test install with the en-us .1288 iso and what i did there is only a quick test to compare with ltsc 1809 to judge its potential and give my initial thoughts here for you lot. havnt finished yet, you will know when i have
have sent pm.
It's optional because the majority of Enterprise users bind to local domain servers. Azure AD is for remote workers, so they can authenticate without having to VPN. I would guess removing CloudExperienceHost (OOBE) deletes that task.
The only people who care otherwise are Office 365 users.
