    Problem with Edition upgrade of Windows 10 Home to Education


    Hello

    I am working as a volunteer at our local school. We just recieved 10 Lenovo E31-70, who are all running Windows 10 Home Edition, version 1511.
    Through Microsoft License Center, we can license 50 machines with a MAK key.
    So i started up the first one, got to do the edition upgrade, which went smooth.
    Then the second one, enter the same MAK-key, but this time it goes to 100% reboots, Seems to do the update and then I can log in again. But it then tells me "We could not update your edition"

    I have tried to run full update, and on three others, which all do the same.
    Is there any one out there who might have an idea on what is going on??

    Thank you in advance

    Tommy

    :)

    Windows 10 Education is more in line with Windows 10 Enterprise than Windows 10 Pro. The main difference between Education and Enterprise is the Education version can be upgraded from a Home Edition instead of a Pro Edition. Enterprise version needs a Pro
    licence in the first place.

    Windows 10 Education Licence

    I have a new Laptop with Windows 10 Home installed, however I have Education License and product Key for Windows 8.1 Education edition. I use to download but it allow me to download Windows 8.0 only not 10

    How can I upgrade my Windows from Home to Education using Windows 8.1 product key?

    Problem with Edition upgrade of Windows 10 Home to Education

    I found out what the problem was.
    All computers came with a trial version of McAfee. I uninstalled, and was now able to do edition upgrade.
