    Have you tried option 2 here?
    You let Home install and then upgrade with the generic Pro key later.
    The generic key wouldn't activate but your digital entitlement takes care of that.

    One thing I'm not sure of is whether the generic keys are the same in 1607.

    They seem to be, at least my simple test earlier today implies that: I installed 1607 from an ISO containing both Home and Pro on a Hyper-V vm. When installing from this ISO without key Windows setup shows after clicking I don't have a product key the edition selection, Home or Pro.

    Using the generic Pro key valid since 10240 (VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T), the key was accepted and edition selection not shown, and Pro was installed.

    Just one single test by one single user but for me conclusive enough

Hi fellow Ten Forums geeks :) Thanks to @Wynona's and @Cliff's idea I thought why not start sharing our homemade Windows 10 themes. To keep this clean and simple, please post only themes with copyright free or your self made backgrounds to avoid...
