  1. Watermark activated after upgrade to w10 pro from w10 home


    Hello, I cannot activate windows after an upgrade to Pro from Home. The watermark remains on screen at all times. All I want is to revert back to Windows 10 Home because it says my license is only valid for home, but I am stuck in pro and it gives me trouble when attempting to revert. I'm kinda lost at this point. Any suggestions out there? Thank you. Brian

    :)

    W10 activation and motherboard failure.

    Hey, wasn't sure what section to put this in.

    Motherboard died yesterday, managed to source a replacement but I believe I am correct in thinking that once I swap the board W10 will deactivate itself and demand I buy a new copy?

    If so, would I be able to get around this by booting the system with a spare HDD, installing W7/8, upgrading to W10, then connecting the original drive (so the MB has been used/activated with W10)?

    Thanks.

    W10 Home > Pro

    Question:

    right now I made a bootable USB for W10, off my current installation which is a W10 Home.

    Monday I'll use that on my new rig but I want to move to W10 Pro on that one. Is this possible with my bootable USB setup? My guess is that you just re-pick your version based on the activation code, amirite?
