    hi

    i just bought new laptop with win10 home. but i need to use win10 pro. so i bought the upgrade from ms store. unfortunately during installation i got an error 0x80070005. so i chat with ms support and they suggest to turn off my antivirus and reinstall win10 from the link given to me. so i follow the step while uninstall antivirus cause i want to install new av after got my pro version. unfortunately during downloading my home got no electricity, so i cant download and chat with the support person for the next step.

    now i successfully reinstall my window but i stuck. How to proceed after that? my window still 10 home. I got no product key cause it's a digital cert. i cant purchase it again right? what to do now. i have to wait until tomorrow to chat with ms support. if someone have an idea, please tell me. i'm wasting a lot of time to get this new laptop ready for my work.


    for ms support here is the ref

    Win10: windows update stuck at never ending loop ?

    When in win10:
    • Update&security -> Windows update -> Finding update... .... .... ....
    Planning to download the latest Win10.ISO (vers.1803) and manually update:
    - Then wait that my ordered new SSD arrives and clone the old HDD to it.

  3. Just bought upgrade from win10 home to win10 pro.

    Just bought upgrade from win10 home to win10 pro. I followed the directions and reinstalled but now I still have Win10 Home (and a bunch of missing drivers). How do I find my product key to redo the install of Win 10 Pro. I bought from within my Microsoft
    account that I have had forever, like 20 years or something with Hotmail. So I didn't buy it from just some shady place it was from Microsoft.

    Upgrade win10 home to win10 pro

    I'm trying to upgrade my win10 home to pro but I'm stuck. The steps taken are below:

    1. I disconnected my internet-connection.

    2. I went to systems->"Update&Security" -> Activation -> "Change Product Key"

    3. I entered the generic key "VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T" and the upgrade started.

    4. After the upgrade and restart I went back online and now entered by newly bought win10pro product key and this didn't work. It said "The key you entered cannot be used jadajada-something".

    When I look at my version of windows it still says win10 home.

    What am I missing here?!
