    With such tools i can download only "Windows 10 Pro" if i'm not mistaken, does it includes "windows 10 pro for workstations"?

    Pretty sure that the ISO download will give you all consumer editions (basically everything except Enterprise). You can pick what to install at setup time, or the installer may choose automatically if it detects your product key burned into the BIOS.

    Here's another one.
    https://tb.rg-adguard.net/public.php
    (It is a not Microsoft site but it directs you to Microsoft-hosted ISOs.) I had the 1909 one sitting around and booted it in a VM. I can confirm that it offers the Pro for Workstations choice for install.

    It automatically installed windows 10 pro for workstations.
    However there is no dell oem logo but it's not an issue.

    Guys, I've 7730 , E-2186M,64gb ecc, p5200, 1tb nvme, 4k.
    It's a really powerful workstation, but when I'm playing games sometimes, it's lagging too much for 10-20 seconds and then it's becoming healthy again.
    When I checked, there is no thermal issue, but my battery drops from 100% to 90% while it's plugged in... I believe 240W power supply is not enough. I've 19.5V 330w power supply from clevo p870dm-g . I'm planning to change the plug and use it for dell 7730. What do you think?

    Another subject, do you recommend any notebook cooler for 7730?

    NVIDIA control panel.
    Manage 3D settings, program settings tab.
    Add a profile for your game.
    Scroll down to "power management mode" and set it to "prefer maximum performance".
    Apply / close out and try again.

    Still same issue,
    My battery dropped to 95% after playing one hr.
    System power looks fine but i still think 240w is not enough. I'll check with 330w charger tomorrow.

    The system is known to draw from battery power if both the CPU and GPU are under high load. You can plug in a 330W adapter and it will work, but it will not draw any more power than it does with the 240W, so you will have the same problem. (This has been tried before.)

    I think there is also some threshold in the charging system.
    I observed a lot of times that my battery dropped to around 90-95% before it started charging again.
    But it never dropped below that point, so I don't think it's an issue of "not enough power to charge while gaming" otherwise the battery would drop all the way down to 0% (if you would play long enough).

    Has anyone been noticing keyboard issues with these systems?
    I got mine at launch, over a year and a half ago. Over the last few months I have been frustrated when using the built-in keyboard. It very frequently misses keystrokes and I have to hit keys multiple times for them to register. I thought that it might be a C-states thing, but it happens whether the system is on battery power or plugged in, and I haven't had any "repeated" keys which was another indicator of that problem. I do not have any issues when using an external keyboard. I was wondering if maybe not using the laptop keyboard very much contributed to this problem, since I use it docked >95% of the time.

    Anyway... I just had Dell ship me a new keyboard and I'm installing it today, so I'll know soon if it was a physical problem with the original keyboard. But still wanted to see if anyone else had noticed such issues.

    [Edit]
    Keyboard swap done. Not too bad but disappointed that you have to remove the bottom cover in order to swap it out (didn't have to with the older M-series Precisions). Anyway, early results are promising, I typed out a paragraph and it didn't miss anything so I am going to call the old keyboard bad.

    So even if one has Prosupport/Prosupport Plus and asks for a new keyboard, Dell does not send any technician to your place to fix it but they just send it to you leaving the replacement process to one's manual skills ?
