    How to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro/Windows 10 Pro for Workstations?


    Hello, Microsoft community!


    I have 4 workstations and 1 notebook that all have Windows 7 Pro installed.

    1. Can I still upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for free? If yes, how and what do I need?

    > I'm a bit confused because I see blog posts saying that you can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free using the original Windows 7 license.

    2. How do I upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations?

    > Do I need to upgrade first to Windows 10 before I can update to the Workstation version or can I upgrade directly to the Workstation version?


    Best regards!

    :)

  2. Microsoft to Introduce Windows 10 Pro for Workstation PCs

    Microsoft is seemingly going to introduce another version of their Windows 10 operating system. After introducing Windows 10 S earlier in the year, followed by the "Chinafinitive" Windows 10 China Government Edition, the company is seemingly responding to specific market demands of professionals and enterprises. The new Windows 10 Pro for Workstation PCs (which was first leaked by Microsoft itself through an erroneous upload to the Insider Program) will apparently come in two variants, a standard variant, and the N variant, which is built to comply with EU regulations.

    The new Windows 10 Pro for Workstation PCs will introduce ReFS, the successor to the tried and true NTFS file system. The new ReFS is designed for fault-tolerance and is optimized for handling large data volume, including auto-correcting capabilities and backwards-compatibility with NTFS. Additionally, Microsoft is baking in SMB Direct protocol file sharing in Windows 10 Pro for Workstation which allows for high throughput, low latency and low CPU utilization when accessing network shares. It will also introduce support for systems with up to four CPUs (up from Windows 10 and Windows 10 Pro dual CPU limit) and 6 TB of RAM.

  3. 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.

    How to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro/Windows 10 Pro for Workstations?

    Windows 10 Release Date Announced

    Windows 10 Home will be $119, Pro $199.

    Microsoft: Windows 10 Home costs $119, Pro costs $199



    Which is good news actually, because Windows 8.1 is loads cheaper than previous versions (retail licensing at Windows 7 OEM prices). And it sort of puts a huge hole in the Windows subscription theory.
