    Activating Windows 10 1809 LTSC


    Hello,

    I have about 100 HP PC's that were purchased with Windows 10 Pro OEM from HP. Here is my issue. I need to know if I do not let the system hit the internet and then apply Windows 10 1809 LTSC license from the scratcher? If the unit hits the internet will it try and activate the OEM from the MB? Will the LTSC take over and leave it alone?

    Thank you for your help.

    Do you have a legitimate license and product key for LTSC?

    With that many PCs is this a business scenario? Do you have LTSC licences for that many machines?

    The only time the OEM key is read from the motherboard firmware is during a clean install with the standard install media downloaded from Microsoft as an ISO or by using the MCT. Setup will read the key from the firmware in order to determine which edition to install and to activate it. Thereafter the key in the firmware will not be read or used again. By then it would have been installed as the key held in the registry.

    Maybe a label that has the product obscured by the scratch off covering?

    Yes. I do have an unlimited number of licenses available. I am new to the manufacturing process with LTSC as until now we just used OEM. Microsoft made my company a manufacture in order to stick on one platform so it did not interfere with our software. I forgot to mention that this is Windows 10 IOT ent 2019 High End OEM software license. This is for our HP Z4G4 with the Xenon processor. The licenses are purchased from our "mothership" in Japan and we manufacture them here. The scratcher is the little grey part for the first 10 characters of the license. The systems will not activate with my old image. I am going to try and build it from scratch and see if it lets me override the license. I will update the thread when I finish in an hour. Thank you for your help.

    This is what I get from Microsoft
