Support for Windows 10 in Configuration Manager

Applies to: Configuration Manager (current branch)

Learn about the Windows 10 versions that Configuration Manager supports as a client. For more information about support for later versions of Windows, see Support for Windows 11.

For more information about support for the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 10, see Support for the Windows ADK.

Tip

Windows Server builds as a client are supported the same as the associated Windows 10 version. For example, Windows Server 2016 is the same build version as Windows 10 LTSB 2016, and Windows Server version 1803 is the same build version as Windows 10, version 1803.

For more information on Windows Server as a site system, see Supported operating systems for Configuration Manager site system servers.

Windows 10 versions

Configuration Manager attempts to provide support as a client for each new Windows 10 version as soon as possible after it becomes available. Because the products have separate development and release schedules, the support that Configuration Manager provides depends on when each becomes available.

A Configuration Manager version drops from the matrix after support for that version ends. Similarly, support for Windows 10 versions like the Enterprise 2015 LTSB or 1511 drops from the matrix when they're removed from support.

The following table lists the versions of Windows 10 that you can use as a client with different versions of Configuration Manager.

Windows 10 on ARM64

Configuration Manager supports the client on Windows 10 ARM64 devices.

The All Windows 10 (ARM64) platform is available in the list of supported OS versions on objects with requirement rules or applicability lists.

Note

If you previously selected the top-level Windows 10 platform, this action automatically selected both All Windows 10 (64-bit) and All Windows 10 (32-bit). If you want to add All Windows 10 (ARM64), manually select it in the list.

OS deployment isn't supported, except for a feature update task sequence. Starting in version 2103, you can deploy a task sequence with a feature update to a Windows 10 on ARM64 device. For more information, see Deploy a feature update with a task sequence.

Support for Windows Insider

You can update and service Windows Insider builds. This ability is provided as a convenience to our customers. While this functionality should work, the support for it is best effort. Configuration Manager might not issue a hotfix for this functionality if it ceases to function.

To provide feedback on Windows Insider, use the Feedback Hub.

Sysprep and Windows 10, version 20H2

If you manually customize a reference computer that runs Windows 10, version 20H2, and then use capture media, Windows Sysprep fails with the following entry in the sysprep.log: Failed to clean the package repository database: 0x80070005. This issue happens when you sign in to the device and create a user profile.
