2019 LTSC IOT HP vs Dell Windows update

ru me

Jun 2, 2018
I have a Dell Wyse 5070 and a Hp T740 with an IOT license. I understand that for their intended purpose in a VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) with enabled write filter, limited updates are a desired feature. However, despite the name, the IOT licenses are a complete desktop environment and I would like to use it as such. I noticed that Dell provides access to Windows update. Hp on the other hand blocks this access. Any pointers on how to enable it? Any gotchas compared to using Win10 Pro?

LTSB/LTSB Windows comes with all the junk "modern apps" and "windows store" removed and a bit less telemetry. It is less resource hungry.

Support for these versions is extended up to 10 years, WU won't autoinstall a new version of Win10 whenever it pleases.

Besides that they're identical.
