    Yesterdays updates trashed my brand new Windows 10 Pro desktop - The media creation tool only has 10, not Pro, will that work anyway or will it overwrite my Pro with 10?

  2. Windows 10 Media Creation Tool


    I got bored waiting for my 10 Pro upgrade message so I am using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to play around with installing Windows 10 Pro.

    I chose the Upgrade Now option instead of creating media.

    (step 3) https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...tallation.html

    There were lots of different windows up till now.
    So I started screenshots now.

    It offers this now-

    This seems to imply that installed programs will be lost-

    If I lose installed programs I will use my Macrium image to revert to 8.1 Pro.
    Be back after installing 10 or reverting.

    Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 PRO

    Where can I find a Media Creation Tool that will create Windows 10 Pro media?

    The current media creation tool available here:

    Download Windows 10

    creates a Windows 10 Home install on my laptop.

    The only reason I can think of for this behavior is that there is a Windows 8.1 Home SLIC entry in the BIOS, and it is assuming that "Home" is therefore the correct version to install. However I was running Windows 8.1 Pro (purchased separately from the
    laptop) and successfully did an in-place upgrade to Windows 10 Pro before running into software problems caused by the in-place upgrade.

    Bottom line - where can I find Windows 10 Pro installation media? The in-place install doesn't work for me and the current Media Creation Tool creates media that incorrectly installs Windows 10 Home.

    Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 PRO

    Use only this link to
    Media Creation Tool
    to download and install it now, take the requested screenshots again.

    When did you originally Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro? Did you confirm it was Activated and that the Activation read for Pro.
