See paste. (your other unmentioned question is probably here, too)>How do I debloat Windows 10 1803-2004?
Offline (pre-installation): Optimize-Offline
Online (live installation): wpd.app / W10Privacy
Don't mix offline & online tools with each other.>Do I really need to debloat it?
If you had to ask, probably not.>Can you get the Ryzen scheduler on LTSC 2019?
No. Wait for LTSC 2022, or use SAC (semi-annual channel) editions.>Can I upgrade to LTSC 2019?
Only from a previous LTSC build w/o doing the upgradematrix hack in paste.>Is Windows 10 2004 OK? How about 20H2?
Only Education & Enterprise. 20H2 is a small upgrade like 1909 but it's worth waiting a couple weeks or so, just in case.>I already run Windows 7, but don't want to clean install?
The non-LTSC installers can upgrade.>Are homebrew ISOs safe to use (Gen2/Ameliorated)?
Depending on trust&rep, almost never. Most of the time these are unverifiable and unreproducible.
