    Upgrading Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro using the media creation tool


    It is possible I can upgrade my copy of Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro using the Media Creation Tool instead of installing it from the Microsoft Store? Which I did purchase from there. And if so, can I use my current product key that I use for Windows 10 Home to use for Windows 10 Pro or do I need a new product key to activate after I upgrade? Just making sure before I do anything Because installing it from the Microsoft Store only upgrades to the unofficial Windows 10 Enterprise edition which doesn’t activate after upgrading. People have been tricked to fall into that trap like me sadly.

  2. Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks
     
  3. Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    No, in my language I just have the windows 10 and windows 10 N version. In the standard american version I see windows 10, windows 10 Home Single Language, and windows 10 N.

  4. Upgrading Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro using the media creation tool

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    I have bought a legit "Windows 10 Pro" key of a key website. It is legit since i'm currently using it for over a year now. I currently have Windows 10 Pro installed on my PC and I want to do a clean install. I just can't find the windows 10 Pro download in the tool. But if i could use a windows 10 pro key with a normal windows 10 install, I'll be good to go.
