    Bought Windows 10 HOME, its trying to install PRO. HELP!


    I bought a PC 2 years ago and the Windows 10 version that came with it must of been a trial one. I got the watermark to ACTIVATE WINDOWS in the bottom right of my screen.


    After trying quite a few times to get the correct product key, the supplier has stopped trying to help me with this issue.


    Two days ago I bought and downloaded Windows 10 home, went through the steps of downloading and installing and I still have this watermark. As I tried again I noticed the install confirmation window started "Install Windows 10 Pro". I checked my purchase and it's all correct.

    Please help me!

    :)

  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.

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    As far as I am aware there is no Windows 10 Pro version.
    But I'd be happy to be wrong.
