    Windows 10 Pro ISO


    Is there an ISO file for the Pro Version?

    I have just upgraded my laptop to Pro and wonder if the recovery partition got upgraded also. If not, is there an ISO file for Pro so that, if the need arises, I can restore to Pro? I have made a Macrium Reflect image of the Pro.

    Thank you.

    Same iso installs Home/Pro depending on your license.

    If you use the Media Creation Tool to make an ISO it will contain Home and Pro (and a few others like Education).

    But I think you misunderstand the purpose of the recovery partition. It doesn't contain an install image of Windows, it just contains the tools to repair or recover your system.

    If you perform a Reset on your system, it actually uses the installed files in your existing Windows system as the source files to reinstall Windows. You upgraded to Pro so a Reset would reinstall Pro.

    I have made a Macrium Reflect image of the Pro.
    Good. That is by far the best way to restore your system, should you ever need to. It avoids having to reinstall and configure all your other apps.

    OK and thank you.

    I just ran slmgr -dli and it showed I had the Enterprise edition. I must have done something wrong. I wanted Pro.

    Typically home or pro to enterprise and vice-versa requires a clean install.

    An iso should be able to be used for its windows advanced troubleshooting menu on most windows versions and builds.

    There is also an option to create a custom recovery:

    I did just like your link described. In fact, I believe I followed it when I did the upgrade. The funny thing is that my order confirmation from the store states I had ordered Pro. Go figure! Is there a way I can get them to send it again? I sure don't want to pay another $99!

    Thans again.

    You switch from Home to Pro or Enterprise etc via change product key. It just unlocks that editions features. I do it all the time. I can go back down editions too, except I can't go back to Home with out reinstalling Windows. Home is the only exception though, for what ever reason?

    If you entered a Pro product code you should have gotten Pro? Enterprise requires either a MAK or VL key to upgrade to it for the first time.
