  1. Upgrading from Windows 10 home to Windows 10 Professional via a Windows 7 professional disk


    I have an OEM version of Windows 10 home which was pre-installed on my computer. I also have a fully licenced version of Windows 7 professional, this is installed on a computer which is not capable of being upgraded to Windows 10; consequently it will no longe be used.


    Is it possible to upgrade my Windows 10 home version to the professional version via my Windows 7 professional disk?


    My current computer came with recovery versions of Windows 10 home on a its D drive and b on a USB stick.


    If I can do the converison is it possible to download Windows 10 professional with all the current updates to a my computer and b my recovery media.

    :)

  4. Upgrading from Windows 10 home to Windows 10 Professional via a Windows 7 professional disk

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
