Frankly speaking, Win10 is still in development phase and not stable

Better use win 8.1 with RSAT tools

I cant use 8.1 since my company is looking to upgrade to Windows 10 in the near future. Funny thing is, is that RSAT was working just fine about 3 months ago, then I had to rebuild my system with the same ISO image my company has. Now this is happening.

Ok... please install a test VM with win10 v1607 and this (new!) RSAT download: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=45520
This has to work.

Is this version of Windows 10 enterprise? I need to have enterprise for my work environment.

Also you said that RSAT download is new? Where is the old one? I believe I used the old one on my LTSB Windows 10 enterprise system a few months ago and it was working just fine...

I use this version on enterprise and also on pro, it doesn't matter, try it. The old version? You won't need it. only MS knows where the old downloads are archived.

So, looks like my product key for enterprise LTSB didnt work on the media creation ISO I downloaded. Clicked on the install without a product key, and it doesnt give me an option to install enterprise...what now?

Pro behaves just like enterprise, believe me. So just install pro. For a test, you don't need a key.

Update: It is functionally perfectly without issue. Only problem is I need a version of enterprise because that is what my company's license key can be used with.

I believe you have option to downgrade license from enterprise to pro for this system to avoid licensing issues

There is no other version for enterprise - it is the same. Install the current one, or install the new one over the old one if possible.

I don't have a pro license....my company has shifted away from using Pro OS's and we are now fully on enterprise.

Sorry, who tells you to shift your edition? No :-) Just reinstall RSAT this time with the newest version and then let's see.

So this is what I did...

Used our company Windows 10 Enterprise x64 LTSB (Build 1507)

Downgraded to Pro x64 with the Microsoft media creation tool

Edited a few registry keys to make it look like Enterprise...Restarted

Re-joined my domain....and bam. I had Enterprise x64 again but build 1607 now.

AD is now working just fine.

If RSAT did not work correctly on Enterprise edition, downgrading OS to supported lower version is not bad approach to avoid licensing issues and to avoid bugs

You changed registry keys in order to be able to upgrade to 1607? You have enterprise, that's a software only available with a software assurance agreement. If you have such an agreement, you may download the version 1607 and upgrade, so using pro as a step in between is bogus.

Only my boss has the credentials for the volume licensing center lol. I didn't feel like asking him to download the iso when he already did and it was the wrong one.
