  1. Upgrade to Windows 10 Education Pitfalls?


    I have my Windows 10 Home set up the way I want it. Because I'm a student, I have a Windows 10 Education key that I can install. The only time I've ever changed Windows versions was on a new machine. I've never done it on a machine that was already configured. Is there anything I should consider?

    1. Are there any features or capabilities in Windows 10 Home that are not in Windows 10 Education?
    2. Will I have to reinstall application software?
    3. Will I have to reconfigure my Windows settings?
    4. Will I be able to revert back painlessly to the old key if I don't like the Education version?
    5. Because the Windows 10 Education license is a bulk license from my university, will I lose any access to support from Microsoft?
    6. Are there any burdens associated with the Windows 10 Education license like periodic proof I'm a student?
    7. Is there any pitfall I haven't asked about here?

    :)

    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 to Windows 10 Education Pitfalls?

    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:
