  1. Remove unlicensed Windows 10 pro and install licensed windows 10 home


    I recently had my computer rebuilt by a friend of a friend. For some reason he has installed an unlicensed version of Windows 10 pro. I had wanted to install the version of Windows 10 Home I had on my old computer since all of its components have been stripped out and it is going in the trash. I used the Media Creation tool to install Windows 10 home on a USB stick from my old computer before I trashed it. I have the product key etc but I can't figure out how to uninstall the bogus copy of Windows 10 pro that's on my new system and reinstall the Windows 10 home I had on the old one.

    :)

  2. Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    As far as I am aware there is no Windows 10 Pro version.
    But I'd be happy to be wrong.
