  1. Upgrade from Windows 10 Education to Home??


    I installed Windows 10 Education on my new system as I comply with the requirements. When I sign in, I am limited by the number of modifications I can make because of the limitations put in place by my college IT dept. I want to 'upgrade' to Windows 10 Home so I can actually control what goes on with my pc so I bought and tried to install Windows 10 home but the final screen before committing to the install says something like paraphrase "You can't save any apps or data" and "You are installing Windows 10 Education".


    No, that is what I am trying to get rid of because it limits what I can do with my pc. Tried to install FS2020 and couldn't, tried to install iTunes and couldn't, some sort of error about "PUR-InventoryNeverAugmented". I tried all the recommended fixes for that on these forums but nothing helped and that is why I am trying to change the OS to something that I have control over. Anyone?

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.

  4. Upgrade from Windows 10 Education to Home??

    Upgrade windows home to windows education

    Have you tried upgrading by using only the product key?

    Click Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Change the product key

    Enter your Windows 10 Education key

    Click Next

    Should be upgraded within 5 to 10 minutes, personal files, apps and settings preserved.

    Learn more:


    If the problem persist, I suggest you repair your Windows 10 Home installation first:
