Any difference in Evaluation Center ISO

Hi Team,

I tried a Win10 LTSC OS ISO file in Windows Evaluation Center.

I would like to know if there is any difference from official build if I active it with correct KMS key after 90 days.

Windows 10 LTSC Evaluation can’t be activated, after 90 days trial you need to reinstall.
If you want to use LTSC version, download full edition LTSC ISO from Visual Studio subscription or VLSC, then activate it by volume license.

Should be fine or the better option may be to download licensed media here.

Hi,

Converting an evaluation copy to a full copy is deprecated. It's not a good idea to try conversion, please see
Upgrade win 10 entreprise evaluation copy to fully copy
SOLVED: Unable to convert Hyper-V server 2019 Datacenter Eval version to full

If you fail to activate this evaluation after installation, or if your evaluation period expires, the desktop background will turn black, you will see a persistent desktop notification indicating that the system is not genuine, and the PC will shut down every hour.

If it's activated successfully, I don't think there are any difference between official and converted evaluation version.
