    Thanks for that, Alpha. I assume the LTSB edition is a special licensed version to be able to access Windows update for Business then, yes?
    The main point of LTSB is that it will only get security updates, hot fixes and such. Other than those and possibly sideloaded apps it will remain as it was when installed. It will not get any new features.

    I can see where an edition that doesn't install extra apps would be beneficial so far as install time and employees toying around on company time.

    Side loading of specifically-developed apps catered to a specific type business for use I thought to be an ingenious idea. I wonder how well that's catching on?
    I think several versions can use Windows Update For Business. Pro , Pro VL, Enterprise etc, maybe even the Education version. It's likely setup through a Group Policy or script. Not sure if you need a Domain login or not? Haven't really looked that deep into it. I can't use it, so I haven't researched all that much. I just remember trying to tell people, even if you have Pro, that doesn't mean you'll get total control over updates. You still need access to Windows Update for Business. That's how it looks to me anyway. The group policy is doable, if you have Pro or Enterprise. I'll have to look at the options available before I comment further on that. I have no desire to totally turn off Windows update.

    This is an incorrect title. You CAN disable ALL updates permanently with the group policy editor.
    Unless you manually choose to do so, windows update can be disabled.

    Proof > I have tested this. Have NOT received ANY updates.
    Yes, as one gentleman stated there. It was a TechNet page I chose out of a Bing search result basically because it was TechNet and not a mag site so to gain insight. I also realize that Pros use GPE a lot.

    You already chased one well-seasoned member off the thread with what I would say is a "Pro pious attitude". We enthusiasts know more than what you think and we continue to learn. If you want to come on and teach that's one thing, but please don't speak down to us as I sense you do.

    I remember when Windows 7 came on netbooks as the Starter edition - there were ways to get Group Policy editor working even on that. Gpedit.msc is after all just editing the registry in a more user friendly, and safer way than directly with regedit. How to Enable (gpedit.msc) in Windows 7 Home Premium, Home Basic and Starter Editions? - AskVG

    There also used to be Excel workbooks available containing the GPEdit settings and the relevant registry key values that they changed which were rather useful. Just looked and they are still there: Download Group Policy Settings Reference for Windows and Windows Server from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Yep and I won one of those netbooks. They weren't gonna let Win 7 Starter connect to the Internet and I made a case of why it should get to connect. Gave the netbook to my grand son.

    Has anyone tried to install 2 windows 10 in 1 system? Such as dual boot 2 drives or VM? My teammate asked me a question about this today, but I never tried.

    The need is to have first windows 10 use for regular purpose and second one use as an Insider so never worry about the later one mess up.

    Can both of them be activated?

    Failed to produce dual boot with 2 Windows 10 in 1 system. Tried twice and both end up with only new Windows 10 bootable. Here is my story:

    1. System was clean installed to 10 after upgraded from 8.1 to 10. Drive is Seagate.
    2. Using 2nd drive - Western, clean installed 10, activated with Insider active.
    3. Seagate is no longer bootable, even completely removed Western from system.
    4. Booting from Western is fine with no issue.
    5. Clean installed 10 on Seagate, activated with insider active.
    6. Western is no longer bootable, even completely removed Seagate from system.
    7. Booting from Seagate is fine with no issue.

    Any idea?

    Install windows on non booting disk without other one attached, than use EasyBCD to make dual boot menu at start or chose which drive to boot from thru BIOS fast boot menu.

    I did tried at 2nd time without other one attached and to boot from BIOS but still the same. I think MS records all activation activities and wouldn't allow the NEW dual boot now. Maybe we will have to wait until NEW Insider Program reopens.
