    Win 10 pro gone from media creation tool?

    Hello, I want to make a Win 10 pro install disc from the media creation tool. It was given as an option before the new update came out, but I don't see it anymore. Anyone else seeing this?

    Hello Eric, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    It will install both the Home and Pro edition. The digital entitlement or entered product key during Windows Setup will determine which one gets installed. If you skip entering the key during Windows Setup, then you will be able to select which edition to install.

    Thank you so much for the response. I guess MS is changing how they do things as it was separate before.

    You're most welcome. :)

    It was the same with Windows 8/8.1, but Microsoft should have the edition listed as Windows 10 Home/Pro instead to help avoid confusion.
