    It depends upon how the recovery drive was made. A standard Windows 10 installation USB flash drive will because it contains both Home and Pro. A recovery drive created from a specific computer with the Recovery Media Creator will only contain the version of Windows 10 that was on that computer, to the best of my knowledge.
