    New Media Creation Tool doesn't have all editions?


    Hi,
    I want to upgrade my laptops using clean install so I used the Media Creation Tool but I only see 3 options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home Single Language
    Windows 10 N.

    Click image for larger version.

    Where is Pro?
    I have Windows 10 Pro and there is no ISO for that. :S
    Yesterday, I wanted to download "Windows 10 Home Single Language" for my friend to upgrade his laptop, but there was no option for that as well. And today, suddenly "Windows 10 Home Single Language" shows up.

    What is even going on?
    And what edition is that just "Windows 10"?

    Home and Pro combined. Index 1 of install.esd in the sources folder will be Pro and index 2 of install.esd in the sources folder will be Home. I can show you the DISM /get-wiminfo commands to prove it, if you like.

    Okay, but I separately downloaded Windows 10 Single Language English United States and it is asking for product key when I try to upgrade Windows 8.1 Single Language English United States using this ISO and it's asking me for a Product Key.
    Why?

    Make sure your current install is activated. Instead of cherry picking the exact iso file choose upgrade this pc. Usually you get prompted for a key if your upgrading the wrong version or its not activated.
