  1. Upgrade Win 10 Home pre Installed to Win 10 Pro


    I have just bought laptop MSI WS66 11UKT which came with pre installed Microsoft Windows 10 Home Single Language 64-bit Ver.2009.I want to upgrade the OS to Windows 10 Pro. But before that I want to make a clean install for it. I have Windows 10 Pro with DVD inside the package purchased from the same reseller of the laptop as picture below. The question are: 1. Can I use the DVD directly as bootable drive to make clean install of Windows 10 Pro? 2. Do I get the correct license type for the upgrade? I got confuse because they gave me OEM System Builder License instead of Full Package of Windo

    :)

  2. Fresh Install of Win 10 without Serial Key?

    Looking to reformat a laptops HDD, and then reinstall Win 10 fresh. The problem is it came pre-installed with Win 8 and I did the free upgrade to Win 10. How exactly would I re-format the HDD, reinstall Win 10 and ensure it reactivates properly? I don't see a Win 8 serial key anywhere in the contents of the box.

    So now that I installed Win 10...cost!

    When Win 8 came out I did something similar to what is going on here with 10.
    I had Win 7 installed and downloaded a pre-release version of 8.
    I ran Win 8 pre-release for awhile and then the actual final releaseiwas then offered for some real low price like $17.00 US so I grabbed it.
    As I didn't like it I went back to Win 7.

    Recently Win 8.1 came out so I re-installed Win 8 to take advantage of upgrading to 8.1 for free.
    I thought 8.1 was much better and decided to keep using it.

    Now along comes Win 10 and here I am really liking it.
    Now all we need is a great price when they get all the bugs out and release the final debugged copy.

    Upgrade Win 10 Home pre Installed to Win 10 Pro

    Win 10 Pro upgrade using Win 8 Pro product key

    I just bought a new computer running Win 10 Home. When I went to upgrade to Win 10 Pro using my Win 8 Pro product key from my old computer, the upgrade wouldn't activate.

    Now I'm stuck with a bunch of error messages (mainly 0xC004C003) and am being told windows isn't activated. I can't seem to get my activated Win 10 Home back.

    I don't have a product key for the Win 10 Home because it came pre-installed. There's no product code recorded on the packaging or labelling on the device.

    So:

    How do I either

    • activate the Win Pro upgrade, or
    • Get my activated Win 10 home back?
