  1. Upgrading from Win10S to Win10Home


    I am trying to upgrade to Win10 Home. The instructions say to go to: Settings > Update & Security > Activation.

    When I go to Settings I don't have the "Update & Security" option. Where do I need to go?

    :)

    Upgrade WIN10?


    Not directly. You will have to do two steps. First, purchase the Win 10 Pro Pack upgrade for $99 and upgrade your existing Windows 10 Home 32bit to Windows 10 Pro 32bit. Make sure you keep your Pro Pack upgrade key! Then if you want 64bit, you will have to do a clean install of Windows 10 Pro 64bit. There is no way to do an in place upgrade from 32bit to 64bit.

    Upgrade WIN10?


    I have installed Win10. I got Win10Home 32 bit. I'm pretty sure I had 64bit Win8.1 but it's gone now so I can't check. Is it possible to upgrade to Win10 Pro 64bit?

  4. Upgrading from Win10S to Win10Home

    Uppdate win10Home>Pro with OEM non upgrade key?

    I work at a school and can't make the license purchase with credit card. It has to be through billing. Therefore I can't use the easy upgrade function for 99dollar.

    I find reseller that offer OEM win10 pro productkey (ESD purchase) at good price, but some write that these productkeys can't be used to upgrade. They only work as new installation. Which I want to avoid. But on Microsoft community, I read a lot saying that
    it should be working without problem. Just choose "change productkey" within win10home and it will upgrade.

    What should I do? Is there really win10proOEM productkeys that can't be used to upgrade? Waht do I have to choose to be sure that it will work?
