    Win 10 Pro reinstalls as Win 10 Home


    I've seen a lot of posts but none that fit what I'm facing. I have an HP Envy that came with Win 8.1 Pro w/ MCE. It was upgraded to Win 10 Pro some time ago. During that process it had me remove the MCE since Win 10 didn't have it which was fine since it wasn't being used. It's currently running Win 10 Pro without any issues but I'd like to do a clean install on an SSD for the machine. Each time I try to install Windows 10 it keeps installing the Home version. Since it came with 8.1 Pro there are no stickers on the machine and it's all registered to the hardware. The upgrade from 8.1 to 10 didn't give me a key. How do I get it to install the Pro version?

    :)

  2. Fresh Install of Win 10 without Serial Key?

    Looking to reformat a laptops HDD, and then reinstall Win 10 fresh. The problem is it came pre-installed with Win 8 and I did the free upgrade to Win 10. How exactly would I re-format the HDD, reinstall Win 10 and ensure it reactivates properly? I don't see a Win 8 serial key anywhere in the contents of the box.

  3. Reinstall Win 10 Pro

    Hi,

    I had Windows 10 pro installed in my laptop, and had to send it for a repair. Once I got it back, retailer has installed Win 10 Home version.

    I have linked my Win pro 10 (Ver 1803) to my windows account, prior to sending for repair. I can see that the device is still listed under my name.

    Is it possible to reinstall Win 10 pro back in the same laptop? If so, where can I find the activation key? Windows was pre-installed when I purchase it.

    Thanks.
