    Windows 11 Pro Upgrade from Windows 10 Pro Edition

    No but after it installed the malfunctioning Windows 11 upgrade it was listed as Windows 11 Pro. Microsoft Windows support advised I reinstall Windows 10 Pro and said that Windows 11 is really only meant for new PC's that come with it preinstalled. MSI website doesn't list my 2020 GT76 Titan dt-039 notebook on their Windows 11 upgrade eligibility list so I guess that's why the Windows 11 Pro upgrade failed. I suggest being careful with trying the Windows 11 upgrade despite it stating my notebook was capable of running Windows 11 it was wrong. Luckily I have the original Windows 10 Pro USB Flash drive because the Windows 11 Pro upgrade was so incomplete I had no way of reverting notebook back to Windows 10 without reinstalling from a USB Flash.

    Windows 11 Home to Pro Upgrade for Domain Use

    Owner of company had to buy a laptop while on vacation to do work remotely in a pinch. Laptop has Windows 11 Home, we want to upgrade to 11 Pro for domain use.

    If the Windows Store is the place to purchase this upgrade for $99, and the Store has to be linked to a Microsoft Account, how can I ensure we retain the license if that account was disabled if that employee left? What is the best/proper way for an organization to upgrade a PC from Home to Pro in order to use in domain environment without risk of losing the Pro license down the road?

    Thank you!
