  1. New laptop now has two W10 Home installations - HELP please


    I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 5 Slim (A515-54)
    It shipped with W10 Home on a 500G NVME SSD. The W10 Home key is apparently set in the BIOS.
    It also has a space to hold a second (regular) SSD, and came with a bracket\ribbon for this purpose.
    I installed the second drive, a 250G Apacer, without problems.
    My intention was to install W10 Pro on the second SSD, so I downloaded the ISO from Microsoft and purchased a Pro key.
    However, when I installed the ISO, it seems to be activated as another W10 Home.
    How can I change the second installation to W10 Pro?

    :)

    Installing W10 on this Laptop

    HP Stream 11 under Windows 10 - Touchpad not recognized.

    Are you making sure you are trying the correct driver for the WiFi... They list Broadcom, Intel, and/or Realtek.

    Also, try to run the installer as an administrator install.

    If that fails... try extracting the files and manually install the driver.
