Hi Calvin,


Thanks for your note -


Generally speaking, it is possible to upgrade from one edition to another edition that is the same or closely related. Server Core should be upgradable to Server Core, Server with Desktop Experience should be upgradable to Server with Desktop Experience.


In this specific case, we are not releasing the Server with Desktop Experience editions to the Insider community, so unfortunately there is no version of Server with Desktop Experience to upgrade to. If you had a Windows Server, version 1709 Server Core version, then you could upgrade it to the latest insiders build, which I believe is build 17079.


Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.


Thanks, Calvin!!!
