Using DISM to upgrade your OS Version
Another nice function of DISM is for upgrading the OS version. You can use it to upgrade from standard to enterprise or datacenter via the command line without reinstallation. Super handy! See sample syntax below –
C:\Windows\System32\>Dism /online /Set-Edition:ServerEnterprise /ProductKey:xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx
