Windows 10 Upgrade Path is Language Specific

No comments

The silent upgrade of Windows 10 is dependent upon matching languages.  This may seem obvious when thinking about English versus French.  How about US-EN (409 or 1033) versus EN-GB (2057)?  Turns out that the CB, CBB, etc version you download will really matter.  As the error provided by SMSTS logs are opaque to say the least.  Mike Terrill discovered the issue by running the upgrade in a loud (non silent) mode.

Unfortunately this means that you need even more versions of the ISO on your Distribution Points.

The WQL query for checking the language upgrade for EN-US

select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where OSLanguage = "1033" and OSArchitecture = "64-bit"

The WQL query for checking the language upgrade for EN-GB

select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where OSLanguage = "2057" and OSArchitecture = "64-bit"
