    Reinstall Win 10 - how to get the previously purchased pro back?


    A few months back, I bought a desktop with Win 10 Home and I upgraded it to Pro through store. After the upgrade, I noticed the product key didn't change but it did show that my edition is Pro. A few days ago, I reinstalled Win 10 in a hope to fix a graphic card driver issue with the same product key. Now it shows my edition is HOME. Anyone else has this same experience? Who do I contact to get my Pro license back? My credit card transaction also shows the transaction of the purchase.

    :)

    How to activate previously purchased Win10 Pro licence after reinstall?

    Hello,

    I have just reinstalled the windows 10 using the Media Creation Tool.

    The Windows is activated as Win 10 Home, although I would like to upgrade it to Win 10 Pro.

    Previously it was working like this, I purchased the Win 10 Pro upgrade from the MS Store on 23 February 2019.

    How can I upgrade? There is no product key.

    Thanks,

    Istvan

  3. Reinstall Win 10 Pro

    Hi,

    I had Windows 10 pro installed in my laptop, and had to send it for a repair. Once I got it back, retailer has installed Win 10 Home version.

    I have linked my Win pro 10 (Ver 1803) to my windows account, prior to sending for repair. I can see that the device is still listed under my name.

    Is it possible to reinstall Win 10 pro back in the same laptop? If so, where can I find the activation key? Windows was pre-installed when I purchase it.

    Thanks.
