    Win10 Ver 1511 - Unable to upgrade using ISO method

    Guys I'm stuck with build 10240! I need 1511 so it can support my new GPU (GTX 1080) and even when I try to use the ISO, it will not let me keep my current settings, apps & files. It says I'm trying to install a different edition than I'm currently using. I've been on hold with M$ support for over FOUR hours! I cannot find any solution. The windows update says I'm up to date which is of course incorrect. Install date was 8/8/15. My laptop is on 1511 but my desktop won't update. Please tell me how to fix this! I'm not trying to use any language packs or anything. Using Win10 Pro and I downloaded the "Win10" ISO from the media creation tool. Every version I've tried doesn't work. My only option at this point is a clean install which is unacceptable! Please HELP!

    Please run winver and post the results here.

    Also open a command prompt (admin) and run:
    Slmgr /dlv

    Post that result window here. Then we can probably tell you what is wrong.

    Why does your Product Name say Windows 10 Enterprise?

    That is strange, hey? Everything else points to a Pro digital licence.

    Suggest check the registry keys under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
    EditionID and ProductName - that is what upgrade uses to check validity.
