Windows 10 Business and MDT

Dear All,

We have a Customer with 650 workstations running Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

Customer would like to upgrade to Windows 10 Business (M365)

There are two scenarios,

1) Deployment of Windows 10 Business on new Workstation
2) In place upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10

Since customer does not have sccm we have suggested MDT (as it is a free product) ,

Is there any suggestion around this solution,

Is there is better alternative to this solution,

Are there any compliance issue , awaiting kind response,

Regards- Hasan Reza

Hi, @HASANREZASARDAR-2829
Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
I'm afraid we may not use MDT to achieve these two scenarios.

Before you can set up Windows devices for Microsoft 365 Business Premium users, make sure all the Windows devices are running Windows 10 Pro, version 1703 (Creators Update). Windows 10 Pro is a prerequisite for deploying Windows 10 Business, which is a set of cloud services and device management capabilities that complement Windows 10 Pro and enable the centralized management and security controls of Microsoft 365 Business Premium.

If you have Windows devices running Windows 7 Pro, Windows 8 Pro, or Windows 8.1 Pro, your Microsoft 365 Business Premium subscription entitles you to a Windows 10 upgrade.
