  2. Can't upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Pro

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We apologize for the inconvenience caused and will assist you in the best possible ways.

    I suggest you to download and create an installation media for Windows 10 Pro form the link provided below:

    Download Windows 10

    After the installation media is created, suggest you to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro from the installation media. When the upgrade asks for product key, enter the product key purchased for Windows 10 Pro. If it does not accept, suggest you to skip the activation
    step. After the Operating System is installed, suggest you to activate by phone by following the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + R” and type “slui 4” and press Enter.
    • Select the Region from the list and click Next.
    • Call the Toll-Free number provided on top and can activate via phone.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    10 free upgrade from W-7 Pro to 10 Pro ??

    W7 Home or Pro, makes no difference. Both can be upgraded to W10 and get activated.

    If you look at the screenshot at Step 10 in this tutorial you'll see that the example is taken from an upgrade of W7 Pro to W10 Pro.

    Best way to upgrade W 10 Home to Pro?

    Desktop w/Win7-Pro & Laptop w/Win8.1

    I have a PC & a Laptop both of which are eligible for a free Win 10 upgrade. Is there a way to upgrade the Laptop w/Win8.1 to Win10-Pro and the PC w/Win7-Pro to Win10-Home without additional cost? Asked another way... can a Product Key on two different
    devices be 'swapped' at upgrade time or is this all done automatically?
