    Hi All,

    I just did a clean install of Windows 10 Pro. I had Pro previously installed, but I think it was from the free upgrade. The device was linked to my account. And when logging into my account it shows as Pro. But when trying to activate the device if get the error saying I only have a digital licence for Home.


    Is there a way around this or do I need to do a fresh install of Home?


    Cheers,

    Dave

    :)

  2. 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.

    Clean Windows 10 (?PRO?) install

    Where exactly did you get this "windows pro" key from? If it's off eBay or something, then perhaps you've been sold a dud key. Also, it's not clear if you mean you bought windows 10 pro or an earlier version of windows as there's no such thing as "windows pro".

    Do you have an Windows 7 or 8.1? If so, install that, download the ISO with the media creation tool and burn it to disc. Then run it as an upgrade. After that, the components hash of your PC will give you a digital entitlement for a clean install, so just bought off that disc, wipe the partitions and install it clean. It will auto activate over the internet once installed.

    Windows 10 digital licence activation issues

    Good day

    My hardware sticker indicates that I have a Windows 10 Pro digital license, I installed Windows 10 Pro accordingly.

    Now when I try activate my digital licence it says that I have a Home Single Language licence and must install correct version.

    Please advise how this is possible and what could be the cause of this, I have activated many machines without fail in this regard but today suddenly things changed?

    Please revert with reasons and a fix to resolve urgently to activate the Pro version which is what I require.

    Regards
