Incorrect feature packs being offered to Windows 10 IOT device

ryan 21 Reputation points


Windows update is offering my Windows 10 IoT device the 21H1 update but when I try and install it I'm getting a message saying that this feature pack is not for the IoT version of Windows 10

However the product lifecycle page list 21H1. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise - Microsoft Lifecycle | Microsoft Learn

Yet the IoT page list 2004 as the newest update Features by Release | Microsoft Learn

What am I missing here?


Windows 10 Setup
Windows 10 Setup
Windows 10: A Microsoft operating system that runs on personal computers and tablets.Setup: The procedures involved in preparing a software program or application to operate within a computer or mobile device.

    Hello Ryan,

    In fact IoT is enabled to support the Enablement Package 21H1, as per the next article:

    "Simply put, an enablement package is a great option for installing a scoped feature update like Windows 10, version 21H1 as it enables devices to update with a single restart, reducing downtime. This works because Windows 10, version 21H1 shares a common core operating system with an identical set of system files with versions 2004 and 20H2. "

    A more descriptive information about the error, or maybe from the Windowsupdate.log in the machine after the update attempt would be helpful for the community to help you further

    As always if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
