  1. Windows 10 Pro for Workstations Media Creation Tool


    We are an IT company that routinely performs scratch installs for Windows 10 Pro using the Windows 10 Media Creation tool.


    We now have several accounts that required Windows 10 Pro for Workstations and I do not believe this is an option in the standard Windows 10 Media Creation Tool.


    Can someone please confirm if Windows 10 Pro for Workstations can / cannot be installed using the standard Windows 10 Media Creation Tool. And, if not, how are users supposed to perform scratch installs with the latest Windows 10 build available at that time.


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. how to install and download the new windows 10 pro workstation


    You can't select Windows Pro Workstation on a clean install, its not listed as an install option. Not unless things have changed since I downloaded the Media Creation Tool ISO on the 17th.
    And as far as I know Pro Keys won't work for Pro Workstation. If they would, Microsoft wouldn't have given me new Pro Workstation keys. I have a two separate lists of keys for Pro and Pro Workstation.
    I did option one in the tutorial listed above, Upgrade Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Pro for Workstations

  3. Windows 10 Media Creation Tool


    I got bored waiting for my 10 Pro upgrade message so I am using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to play around with installing Windows 10 Pro.

    I chose the Upgrade Now option instead of creating media.

    (step 3) https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...tallation.html

    There were lots of different windows up till now.
    So I started screenshots now.

    It offers this now-

    This seems to imply that installed programs will be lost-

    If I lose installed programs I will use my Macrium image to revert to 8.1 Pro.
    Be back after installing 10 or reverting.

    Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 PRO

    Where can I find a Media Creation Tool that will create Windows 10 Pro media?

    The current media creation tool available here:

    Download Windows 10

    creates a Windows 10 Home install on my laptop.

    The only reason I can think of for this behavior is that there is a Windows 8.1 Home SLIC entry in the BIOS, and it is assuming that "Home" is therefore the correct version to install. However I was running Windows 8.1 Pro (purchased separately from the
    laptop) and successfully did an in-place upgrade to Windows 10 Pro before running into software problems caused by the in-place upgrade.

    Bottom line - where can I find Windows 10 Pro installation media? The in-place install doesn't work for me and the current Media Creation Tool creates media that incorrectly installs Windows 10 Home.
