Upgrade Win 10 Home to Pro

9 May

This assumes you are eligible for hardware based entitlement to Win 10 PRO

Enter the default Windows 10 Pro product key:

Click Start Upgrade, and after a few minutes, the system restarted. As soon as I connected to the Internet, the Windows activation process checked my hardware against Microsoft’s servers. Because this hardware was already recorded with a digital entitlement to Windows 10 Pro, I was activated immediately, without the need to enter a product key.
