LattePanda 3 Delta 864 OS Questions
I was not familiar with Windows 10 Enterprise and searched for anything I could find about the OS. I have a few questions based on what I was able to find. Thanks!
1) The Windows 10 Enterprise OS, offered with the LattePanda 3 Delta 864, appears to be Windows 10 ioT Enterprise. Is this correct? If not, how is it different?
2) I know Windows 10 Enterprise comes preinstalled but must be activated. If I purchase the system with Windows 10 Enterprise activation is there an ISO, that is offered via digital download, that can be used for a later clean install of the OS?
3) Once activated will Windows 10 Enterprise be able to take advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 11 Enterprise? If so, is there an ISO that can downloaded for performing a clean install of Windows 11 Enterprise?
1. For Windows enterprise versions, it doesn't support to automatically upgrade to windows 11 iot enterprise.
2. Windows key can not be used across versions. The license key of LattePanda 3 Delta can activate Windows 10 iot Enterprise LTSC 2021 ONLY.
Thanks for the details. It sounds like my two options would be to order the system without the OS and buy a Windows 11 Pro OEM License or wait to see if LattePanda adds Windows 11 ioT Enterprise to its download options in 2023. Clearly you are not in a position to speculate about whether LattePanda will add the OS in 2023.
I have been looking at Geekom IT8 (includes Windows 10 Pro) platform but the smaller footprint of the LattePanda 3 Delta 864 would make it my first choice. Today I could purchase the Geekom IT8 (Intel® Core™ i5-8279U with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD) for $329.00. The LattePanda 3 Delta 864 with Windows 10 ioT Enterprise is $339.00 before the Titan Case ($19.00).
1. yes, it comes with Windows 10 iot enterprise.
2. the license key is included in the box and it can only be used to activate Windows 10 iot enterprise LTSC 2021.
3. as we mentioned in Q2, it can only be used to activate Windows 10 iot enterprise LTSC 2021.
Thanks for the reply. Do you know if Windows Updates will pull the Windows 11 ioT Enterprise as a free upgrade? If so, does LattePanda have any plans to offer the ISO upgrade for using for a clean install of Windows 11 ioT Enterprise at some point in the future? I am asking since I am weighing ordering with the Windows 10ioT Enterprise activated or ordering without an purchasing an OEM Windows 11 Pro License. Purchasing an OEM Windows 11 Pro License would cost roughly $100.00 more.
While I was poking around I found a link to download Windows 10 ioT Enterprise. This takes care of questions 1 and 2. The only remaining question is:
Once activated will Windows 10 Enterprise be able to take advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 11 Enterprise? If so, is there an ISO that can downloaded for performing a clean install of Windows 11 Enterprise?
