    Precisely. I was just trying to phrase it errr....."diplomatically". LOL.

    Still, quite odd all this.

    I changed Pro to Enterprise with a Enterprise product key and then I activated via phone.
    Now my system shows "Enterprise" but can't update to TH2 or reinstall the Enterprise ISO with TH2... because I have a "different" edition!

    Today I tried 3 different keys. My Windows 10 Enterprise is not activated now. Same problem, my edition still being different.

    Mount the ISO file. It should have a sources folder with an install.wim file or install.esd file?

    From an elevated command prompt ("run as administrator" command prompt) run:
    dism /get-wiminfo /wimfile:f:\sources\install.wim /index:1

    The path in red needs to be the path to the install.wim file. If you have an install.esd file, then change install.wim to install.esd.

    Post the results back and we can determine if there is something incorrect about the TH2 version you have downloaded.

    Where are you getting all these keys? What ISO are you trying to upgrade the current Enterprise install with? The Media Creation Tool ISO cannot upgrade Enterprise. You need an Enterprise ISO to even attempt it.

    Something just doesn't seem to be above board, does it?

    Just wondering? I have MSDN and I still only get the one Enterprise key. If one was just pulling keys off of the internet it would explain why it won't activate.

    Hi,

    OP states that the current install (10240?) is activated though. See post #11.

    Depends on where you work and how it's licensed. There are MAK keys and KMS keys. My MSDN key is a MAK key. I only get that one Enterprise key and its good for 10240 and 10586. I didn't get any new keys for build 10856 as it uses the same keys as the older build. But, yes normally you would just get the one key to use on all your enterprise PC's. Enterprise keys are good for multiple activations on multiple PC's. This is why I asked where he was getting all these keys?

    I don't think the issue was a key issue though. I think the issue is you cannot upgrade Enterprise from 10240 to 10586 without doing a clean install. It just won't let you do it. When I was running Windows 8 Enterprise I am pretty sure I ran into the same issue. I remember having to clean install to go to a new build at least once. It was a while ago now so I can't remember the exact details.

    And that is definitely a problem!
