I have installed Server 2025 from an ISO. I just checked in settings to discover Windows Update wants to install a new version of Windows 11. See attached


Is Windows update unable to differentiate server from client?

@Thomas LeeIn the release notes it says "The label for this flight may incorrectly reference Windows 11. However, when selected, the package installed is the Windows Server update. Please ignore the label and proceed with installing your flight. This issue will be addressed in a future release."


My 26052 ISO installed VM hasn't shown anything in WU with Win11, but my real hardware 26040 install that flighted to 26052 said it was Win11 as described in the notes.
