    Will I encounter any issues when I come to use a recovery USB, getting Home activated once it's been reinstalled? The device came with home preinstalled, I just hope that the original OEM key is still valid for me to get back to home.

  3. Upgrade windows home to windows education

    Have you tried upgrading by using only the product key?

    Click Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Change the product key

    Enter your Windows 10 Education key

    Click Next

    Should be upgraded within 5 to 10 minutes, personal files, apps and settings preserved.

    Learn more:


    If the problem persist, I suggest you repair your Windows 10 Home installation first:

    Upgrade to Windows 10 Education Pitfalls?

    I have my Windows 10 Home set up the way I want it. Because I'm a student, I have a Windows 10 Education key that I can install. The only time I've ever changed Windows versions was on a new machine. I've never done it on a machine that was already configured.
    Is there anything I should consider?

    1. Are there any features or capabilities in Windows 10 Home that are not in Windows 10 Education?
    2. Will I have to reinstall application software?
    3. Will I have to reconfigure my Windows settings?
    4. Will I be able to revert back painlessly to the old key if I don't like the Education version?
    5. Because the Windows 10 Education license is a bulk license from my university, will I lose any access to support from Microsoft?
    6. Are there any burdens associated with the Windows 10 Education license like periodic proof I'm a student?
    7. Is there any pitfall I haven't asked about here?
