    Yesterday I upgraded from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro via the Windows Store. My original install was done when the upgrade from 7 to 10 was free way back when. Today when using my computer I got a notification to activate Windows. When I go to the activation screen in settings I am told I have Windows 10 Enterprise and that I need to provide a product key: Error Code 0xC004F213. I purchased a digital license because that's what I was told to do since I did the free upgrade, so I don't have a product key. Microsoft support has been calling me but there's nobody there when I answer the phone. How do I solve this problem?

    :)

    Usable Product Keys for Enterprise downgrade to Pro


    Hi, very interested in this opportunity simply to downgrade without having to reinstall.

    Background - I got to Win 10 Enterprise when Win 10 was first released; at that time I think I was offered only Home or Enterprise, so selected Enterprise as my upgrade route from Win 7 Ultimate.

    From there the Windows authentication process led to the digital signature being installed in my machine.

    So I don't have a Win 10 Pro key to use in order to downgrade my setup. I only have my older Win 7 Pro and Win 7 Ultimate licenses available to me.

    Can I use one or other of these as the key for a downgrade?

    [Background - the reason I want to downgrade is due to problems upgrading to Creators Edition with Enterprise. Microsoft have suggested I reinstall, which I think will mean I need to go back to Win 7 Pro and build forward from there. If it's possible instead to just do a downgrade from Enterprise I'd rather go that way. I think I'm fine from an edition point of view; currently on 1607 and trying to go to 1703.]

    Windows 10 Enterprise, instead of PRO

    Hi There,

    I selected Windows 10 Pro in the menu from a USB created clean installation, but once installed, the info screen says that Windows 10 Enterprise is installed instead. I have a valid w10 pro key, can I enter that?

    downgrade win 10 enterprise to win 10 pro


    Hey mate, Upgraded from Win 10 Home to Pro, Enterprise installed instead, asking for key which I... :)

    In this case, the Installed key in ShowKeyPlus is for the currently installed Windows 10 Enterprise.

    The OEM Key in ShowKeyPlus is just the key embedded in the UEFI firmware chip on the motherboard for the OEM Windows 8.1 that originally came preinstalled on the tablet.
