  1. Upgrade from 10 Home OEM to 10 Pro. Can I transfer?


    Title really says it all. I'm about to slap together a new PC . Current PC I bought a while ago had 10 Home OEM preinstalled on a drive. If I upgrade to 10 Pro from the windows store for the $99 will it be a Full/Retail version that I can then deactivate and transfer to my new PC or will it be Pro OEM and I'm just hurling away $99 ?

    :)

  3. Upgrade a Win 10 home OEM to Win 10 Pro OEM with Win 10 Pro OEM Key?

    I recently purchased a laptop that has an OEM version of Win 10 Home on it.

    I verified this by using : slmgr -dli.

    Previously I had purchased an OEM Win 10 Pro Key.

    Can I use this OEM Win 10 Pro Key to upgrade the OEM Win 10 Home to the OEM Win 10 Pro.

    If so what are the steps to accomplish this?

    In addition, I assume that is this is possible, that the current product key will be updated to the new product key?

    The reason I am asking this is that it's my understanding that these product keys are tied to the bios on a name brand laptop.

    TIA

  4. Upgrade from 10 Home OEM to 10 Pro. Can I transfer?

    Upgrading OEM Win10 Home to MSDN Win10 Pro

    Moving to a new PC that I'm building myself. Currently running Dell OEM Win10 Home. New PC will have Win10 Pro, MSDN (multi-activation or retail keys) version.


    My backup software can do a "system transfer" that will allow me to transfer everything (OS and applications) to the new computer.


    Should I upgrade from OEM Home to MSDN Pro on the old computer and then transfer everything to the new computer?


    Or just install Win10 PRO MSDN on the new computer and use the backup software vendor's application transfer program to move the applications and registry entries?


    My goals are:

    1. Not have any "dinosaur bones" either from the OS on my SSD from the old OEM Home version on the new PRO version

    1. Not have to reinstall and reconfigure everything (which would take about a week)

    Thanks for any advice I can get...
