Q. How can customers get Windows 10 Pro for Workstations?

Windows Store as an upgrade from Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro following the release of Fall Creators update.
Q. When can customers expect Intel Xeon/AMD Opteron processor based PCs to be pre-installed with the
Windows 10 Pro for Workstations edition?
Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is part of our Fall Creators Update and will be available on new PCs as soon as the OEMs
start installing the new release on their shipments. Depending on software image refresh schedules and manufacturing
lead-times for individual OEMs, the transition to pre-installed Window 10 Pro for Workstations could take up to 180 days
after the release of Fall Creators Update.
Q. What is the licensing policy of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations? Are OEMs required to pre-install the Windows
10 Pro for Workstations edition on all Intel Xeon/AMD Opteron processors?
Starting October 1, 2017, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations is the only edition of Windows 10 available for OEMs to
license as a pre-install on their Intel Xeon/AMD Opteron processors based PCs. Intel Core i, Pentium, Celeron and
equivalent processor based PCs can continue to be pre-installed with Windows 10 Pro.
Q. Will Windows 10 Pro customers who are on Intel Xeon/AMD Opteron processors based PCs be upgraded to
Windows 10 Pro for Workstations?
Customers who have an Intel Xeon/AMD Opteron processor based PC from OEMs that is manufactured after October 1,
2017, may be entitled to an upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, even if their PCs came pre-installed with
Windows 10 Pro due to OEM lead times in transitioning to Fall Creators Update. Following the release of Fall Creators
update, these customers will be upgraded to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations upon accepting the Fall Creators Update
through Windows Update or other mechanism used in the end-users’ IT environment for delivering updates to Windows
Q. Why is it required for VL customers to get Windows 10 Pro for Workstations pre-installed on Intel Xeon/AMD
Opteron based PCs when they will re-image these PCs with their Windows 10 Enterprise images anyways?
While Windows 10 Enterprise includes all the capabilities of Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, the rights to use those
capabilities and Windows 10 on Intel Xeon/AMD Opteron processors based PCs is provided through the license of
Windows 10 Pro for Workstations. Since we have made Windows 10 Pro for Workstations a QOS, VL customers can
upgrade from Windows 10 Pro for Workstations to Windows 10 Enterprise without any loss of functionality. To be properly
licensed for using Windows 10 Enterprise on Intel Xeon/AMD Opteron based PCs, a base license of Windows 10 Pro for
Workstations is required.

SSD contains flash memory cells that are wearing parts, so SSD can only tolerate a limited number of write jobs and has a
built-in Wear-Out indicator. Depending on usage, there is a possiblity to reach its write endurance limit within the system
warranty period. In this case, the warranty for such a component, as an exception to the system warranty, is restricted to the
time period until the indicator reaches the exhaust level.
How to monitor the write endurance
Management software „ServerView RAID Manager“ is available for monitoring the write endurance for SSD.
The write endurance should be checked regulary so that the replacement of SSD can be initiated before reaching the limit.
The write endurance of this product is in the „Technical details“ table above.
