    Activating a Windows 10 Home product key, with an Unactivated Pro version installed.


    I currently have Windows 10 Pro when i worked with my last company installed. It has since deactivated after some hardware changes. I just bought a digital copy of windows 10 Home for a way to activate it. I've attempted to use the media installation tool for downloading Home, yet it always says I'm using Pro. I've tried the method of changing the file names with "regedit" but it hasn't changed anything. I understand there needs to be a reinstallion done to go down from Pro to Home, i'm just unsure of the method.

    :)

  2. Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.

    Windows 8.1 pro + WMC key activation

    This worked for me last time with a Win 8 key.

    Install Windows 8.1 and enter KMS key during setup. Once in windows change product key to my Windows 8 key. Go to add features and enter my WMC add-on key. Drink a beer to a job well done.

    Windows 8.1 pro + WMC key activation

    So it will be fine installing 8.1 pro with a KMS key, then switch to my 8 pro key and it will activate ok?

    Maybe a daft question but why can't you just install 8.1 pro with the 8 pro key, or is it different keys for 8 and 8.1? seems silly when 8.1 is a free update anyway.
