Upgrade Windows edition with Dism

Have you downloaded the Evaluation ISO and want to make it real? Not a problem with Dism.

# Get current edition
C:\>Dism.exe /online /Get-CurrentEdition

# Get editions that you can upgrade to
C:\>Dism.exe /online /Get-TargetEditions

# Upgrade to desired edition
C:\>Dism.exe /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /AcceptEula /ProductKey:C3RCX-M6NRP-6CXC9-TW2F2-4RHYD

The above key is for Server 2016 Standard AVMA activation. You can find more keys for that here if you have Datacenter on your host.
