    Purchased and Installed Windows 10 Pro Upgrade - but, is now showing Enterprise


    I have a new laptop that came with Windows 10 Home installed. I purchased the $99 Windows Pro Upgrade and installed it. It is now showing the version is Windows 10 Enterprise. I checked my receipt and it's Windows 10 Pro (not Enterprise).


    Now, Windows is saying that I need to Activate my Subscription, but it won't let me since I don't actually have an Enterprise purchase - just Pro.


    I've read through some other Microsoft forums and similar problems have been reported by others. It sounds like to fix it you might need to reinstall and/or apply other solutions that are somewhat complicated. I'm ok with just purchasing Enterprise if I need to - as long as it's a simpler fix.


    What do I need to do to fix this as easily as possible?


    Thanks,

    :)

  2. Can't upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Pro

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We apologize for the inconvenience caused and will assist you in the best possible ways.

    I suggest you to download and create an installation media for Windows 10 Pro form the link provided below:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/software-download/windows10

    After the installation media is created, suggest you to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro from the installation media. When the upgrade asks for product key, enter the product key purchased for Windows 10 Pro. If it does not accept, suggest you to skip the activation
    step. After the Operating System is installed, suggest you to activate by phone by following the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + R” and type “slui 4” and press Enter.
    • Select the Region from the list and click Next.
    • Call the Toll-Free number provided on top and can activate via phone.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    I purchased upgrade to Windows 10 Pro and received Windows 10 Enterprise.

    I pruchased upgrade to Windows 10 Pro and received Windows 10 Enterprise. How can I replace the Enterprise edition with the Pro edition I Purchased? Enterprise edition will not activate. I requested upgrade through settings - windows update & security.

    Here are the messages I am seeing.

    error with MAK - Pro to Enterprise upgrade

    In the article I wrote, I used a Windows 10 Enterprise MAK license to upgrade an installed retail Windows 10 Pro license to Enterprise edition. The only fault is, I didn't post a screenshot showing Enterprise in the About UI.

    The article does detail instructions for non volume license customers, but the same instructions used to upgrade a Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro using the Pro Pack is the same for Windows
    10 Pro to Enterprise using an Enterprise MAK license.

    The actual install media is not required to perform a repair upgrade.

    Quote:

    There’s also good news for users who have Home Use rights through an employer’s

    volume license program
    . Volume license is a convenient way for large businesses to purchase Windows licenses in bulk and deploy it to many computers an organization. Volume license also includes flexible options that allows
    an organization’s employees to upgrade their personal devices to the organization’s licensed edition of Windows.

    So for example, if your company is running Windows 10 Enterprise edition and you are running Windows 10 Home on your personal laptop, you can easily upgrade. This is important for ease of use, management and support rights that guarantees all systems are
    standardized and are protected using the benefits that are available with that particular edition.

    For the purposes of this article, I will be upgrading Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Enterprise.
    Of course, the same procedures apply if you want to upgrade Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro using either a retail Windows 10 Pro license or Pro Pack key.
