    Windows 10 Pro resets to Enterprise


    Good day,


    I purchased a Surface pro 3 some time ago. It has worked just fine but I decided to do a fresh install so I ran Reset my PC. Upon installation I knew something was wrong as it asked for a work/school login email or to join a domain. I was unable to login with my Microsoft account, so I chose a local account. Once I was logged in it became apparent that for some reason it reinstalled Windows Enterprise. I dont have my product key any more so I have spent 2 days to solve this issue and yet not solved.


    What should I do?

    :)

  2. Downgrade Windows 10 enterprise to Pro

    Hello Mohamed,

    Luckily, you can quickly downgrade from Windows 10 Enterprise to Windows 10 Pro by just changing the product key to the one for Pro.

    If you like, the tutorial below can show you step by step the procedure on how to do this.

    Downgrading Windows 10 enterprise to pro


    The procedure is a bit arcane, but I have managed to convert an Enterprise Evaluation to Pro, doing it in two steps: EnterpriseEval to Enterprise (unactivated); then Enterprise (unactivated) to Pro. Details here.

    (Note to the moderator/owner: apologies if this is not an appropriate post for this thread, in which case I thank you for deleting it. I posted only to update/correct the assertion quoted above.)

    Downgrading Windows 10 enterprise to pro


    You are asking the wrong question. It is (technically) possible to switch your versions around but it is isn't trivial. If you have to ask about what to do with your games I think you are not even close to being able to do it.

    You can convert standard Enterprise to Pro but you can't convert an Enterprise Evaluation to anything as it clearly said when you signed up to the program.

    So if you have bought a valid 10 Pro key or your PC came with 10 Pro installed anyway, I'd suggest you clean install 10 Pro. (unplug your other drives first).

    Don't try using generic keys or anything. It is against the rules of this forum and will not work in any case.

    You need a valid key to activate and assuming you do I suggest you use it.
