    Will setting back to factory settings wipe out the digital license?


    Hello Microsoft Community,


    I am concerned about my digital license Product Key because I plan to reset my computer to its factory settings then reinstall all of my software.


    Will setting back to factory settings wipe out the digital license? If not, will the digital license allow me to reinstall Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Upgrade a second time or is the digital license a once-only-download license?


    I have the Product key for Windows 10 Home and will be installing it before installing the Pro upgrade.


    Thanks for your help,


    Steve

    :)

  2. Circumvent a digital license?


    We bought a Dell Inspiron that shipped with Windows 10 Home installed and a digital license. I am trying to get Windows 10 Pro on it so I can join our domain. I've tried entering our legitimate Pro key, and I'm told it isn't valid. Anytime I try a clean install, it, as expected, skips the OS choice and goes right to Home. I have no option to pick.

    I'm also struggling to find a Windows 10 Pro (only Pro) .iso.

    So, any suggestions on how to get around this? I'd love to wipe the digital license clean, but I believe that's stored on the motherboard.
