Windows 10 now does hands-free, no-reboot upgrades

Microsoft has honeyed a Windows subscription pot by vouchsafing craving IT allot with a normal wipe-and-image OS deployment process in preference of an automatic-on-reboot change from Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Enterprise.

The new feature, dubbed “Subscription Activation,” works with Windows 10 1703 – a Apr 2017 underline ascent – or later, and requires entrance to Azure Active Directory (AAD). (The some-more common, on-premises Active Directory will offer in a pinch, as prolonged as it’s synced with AAD.) It also, some-more obviously, final a subscription to Windows 10 Enterprise, such as those enclosed in a Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5 plans, or a newer Microsoft 365 E3 and E5 deals.

Wes Miller, an researcher with Directions on Microsoft, saw one sure-fire advantage to Subscription Activation. “The place that is engaging [to me] is for businesses repaving PCs when they get them,” pronounced Miller in a new interview. “Say we get a new Surface, though it’s usually using [Windows 10] Pro, given OEMs [original apparatus manufacturers] can't boat Enterprise.”

Typically, IT crew take that new device, clean a Windows 10 Pro handling complement from a system, afterwards bucket a corporation’s customized Windows 10 Enterprise picture onto a personal computer. Subscription Activation creates all that moot.
