    I think Windows Pro was somehow installed during an update


    Back when Windows 10 was being rolled out, I signed up for a free copy.


    At some point I had issues getting Windows 10 to update. I set up a time for Microsoft to help me.

    They went in, and messed around with my computer and when I refused to pay a fee, immediately closed

    the Windows, and left my computer a mess. I had to go back and figure out what they changed and put

    it back.


    Meanwhile, over a year later, I figure out what the problem was. (Turned out to be an easily fixed hard drive issue-

    it was just not easy to find.)

    Fast forward.. recently I realized in the corner of my screen it says "Activate Windows."


    So I look at the Activation screen and it says that I am running Windows 10 Pro, but my license is for Windows 10

    Home, and that if I either need to reinstall home or buy a license for Windows 10 Pro. So I look up the activation date:

    it is in May 6, 2018. I originally installed Windows 10 via the original Windows 10 roll out. I mean I looked it up and I

    reserved it back in 2015. I see there was a "Feature update" on May 6, 2018.


    How do I fix this?

    :)

    I think Windows Pro was somehow installed during an update

    Windows 7 wont install drivers

    i dont think anyone here understands what your asking either when its nearly a 90% english dominated Tech forum.
    Step 1
    reinstall windows from scratch
    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.
