  1. Windows 10 pro to 11 pro


    Hello! I just bought this HP EliteDesk 705 G4 Desktop Mini PC USFF AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 2400GE , 16GB 240GB SSD from ebay and it has pre-installed windows 10 pro. Can i get straight a lisence for 11 pro and activate them or do i have to get the license for 10 pro and afterwards upgrade them to 11 pro as you discribe to a recent article i just read? Thank you in advanced!

    :)

    Windows 11 Pro Upgrade from Windows 10 Pro Edition

    No but after it installed the malfunctioning Windows 11 upgrade it was listed as Windows 11 Pro. Microsoft Windows support advised I reinstall Windows 10 Pro and said that Windows 11 is really only meant for new PC's that come with it preinstalled. MSI website doesn't list my 2020 GT76 Titan dt-039 notebook on their Windows 11 upgrade eligibility list so I guess that's why the Windows 11 Pro upgrade failed. I suggest being careful with trying the Windows 11 upgrade despite it stating my notebook was capable of running Windows 11 it was wrong. Luckily I have the original Windows 10 Pro USB Flash drive because the Windows 11 Pro upgrade was so incomplete I had no way of reverting notebook back to Windows 10 without reinstalling from a USB Flash.

  3. Free upgrade from Windows 11 Home to 11 Pro using 10 Pro retail license

    My current computer has an activated Windows 10 Pro retail license. I'm planning to replace my current computer by buying a new computer that comes preinstalled with Windows 11 Home, and then I understand I can use my 10 Pro license to upgrade to 11 Pro for free.

    What's the most straightforward way of accomplishing this? The obvious approach that comes to mind involves two steps:

    1. Reinstall Windows 10 Pro on new computer and activate with my existing retail license.
    2. Upgrade new computer to 11 Pro for free through the settings.
    Is there a simpler way of doing this without having to reinstall Windows 10? For example, would it be possible to somehow "trade in" my Windows 10 Pro license for 11 Pro? I'm fairly new to Windows licensing and am just trying to understand what is possible/best practice, with minimal effort.

    Windows 10 Pro to Windows 11 Pro

    Hi Paloma,

    On May 17, 2022, I installed Windows 11 on all of my Windows 10 PCs and the process was as all described:

    • Windows 10 to Windows 11
    • Windows 10 Pro to Windows 11 Pro
    Installation was flawless on all platforms. Likewise, Windows 11 is performing flawlessly. Kudos to Microsoft for developing and delivering an OS which merits being a replacement for Windows 10.

    Thanks to you, Paloma, and all others who provided assistance to me.

    Kindest regards!!
