    10 Home x64 (1709) (10 Pro on 2nd pc)

    Microsoft's Media Creation Tool downloads .iso or USB install media that can install both the Home and Pro version. For upgrading an existing install of an older version of Windows it will choose a version based the system being upgraded. There's a table here that tells you which you'd get. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/...-upgrade-paths

    For a clean install on a PC that doesn't yet have a licence for 10 you can choose to install as Home or Pro, but you'll have to buy the appropriate licence to activate it.

    The decision to install Home or Pro is done during the install process. The ISO contains the files needed to install either one. There is drop down menu to select other languages when you run the tool.
