  1. Digital License says Windows Home, not Pro


    I've been a member since February 2016, but haven't had a lot to say. I have learned a lot by reading, and I wish to thank all of you for the knowledge.

    Today I have a problem...

    I purchased a $99 upgrade from Microsoft for Win 10 Pro, a few days ago. The upgrade went fine.

    Yesterday, I upgraded my RAM from 8GB to 16 (don't know why - just playing, I guess). I then reinstalled Windows from a retail USB stick for Home, and upgraded it to 1903 using Windows Update Assistant.

    When I went to activate the Digital License to retrieve the Pro upgrade, I found the following from Microsoft:

    "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account"

    However the version is says it's linked to, is Home not Pro.

    I don't know what to do next, to retrieve Pro. Any help with this would be highly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Circumvent a digital license?


    We bought a Dell Inspiron that shipped with Windows 10 Home installed and a digital license. I am trying to get Windows 10 Pro on it so I can join our domain. I've tried entering our legitimate Pro key, and I'm told it isn't valid. Anytime I try a clean install, it, as expected, skips the OS choice and goes right to Home. I have no option to pick.

    I'm also struggling to find a Windows 10 Pro (only Pro) .iso.

    So, any suggestions on how to get around this? I'd love to wipe the digital license clean, but I believe that's stored on the motherboard.

    Windows Digital License

    I have Windows 10 Pro for my desktop and Windows 10 Home for my laptop.

    They are both activated and given an digital license to my microsoft account. But for both of those digital license, i used one same microsoft acount to get digital license.

    Does that mean that my laptop(Home) and desktop(Pro) both will have digital license? or only one of it will have the digital license.

    So for example, if I get in to a situation where I have to reinstall windows on my Desktop, I would reinstall and sign in with microsoft account to activate my digital license. But because my laptop is already activated with that same microsoft account,
    would it block me from activating desktop again? Or can Digital License have multiple PC activated?(Like my Laptop and Desktop. They both do say activated with digital license but I'm still not sure of it)
