INFO: Windows 10 Upgrade process per Edition/Branch Version

I obtained the following visual guide for folks looking to move from Windows 7/8 to Windows 10, or from Windows 10 to a different edition/branch version.

It’s pretty self explanatory but it does highlight the need to completely reimage a workstation if there’s a need to move from a Windows 10 Enterprise to a lesser Edition or a Branch revision with less sophistication. (i.e. W10Enterprise to W10LTSB, or W10LTSB to W10Professional)

This scenario – moving from Windows 10 Enterprise to Windows 10 Long Term Servicing Branch – is one that would be required if an organization were to drop Software Assurance on Windows for the PC in question.
