    Not understanding well, talking about you downloaded the Windows 10 ISO which will have all versions, but need to have Pro version already to go to Pro, specs show Enterprise. Where is this Pro Activation code from ?

    I have a pro activation code from here - Windows 10 Pro Professional 1 License key(Digitally Delivered) 1Hr | eBay i am wondering how i use this because i tried looking for the pro version in the media creation tool and it wasnt there. I also have another pc with windows 10 fully activated an i cannot find a pro version in the media installer there as well. Where can i find windows 10 pro to install on my pc and use the code that i bought

    Gonna say, not sure this ISO will work that way to install and activate, but it is full version and as said Pro version is in it along with home version, key you use will determine the version then. I am a bit not sure because i never used it this way or have helped anyone yet for this. Can try, just backup everything. What is on this PC now,OS ? http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench

    The USB drives you make or the ISO you download with the media creation tool contain both home and pro versions. If the Windows install program does not find a product key to use on the system, it will ask you if you want to install home or pro. If you end up with Home installed, come back here and we can tell you how to do the upgrade to Pro.

    The ISO file from the tech bench link above will also contain both home and pro versions and works the same way - if it doesn't find a product key on the system, it will ask you which version you want to install.

    That is what i first stated, your specs showed enterprise, but thought you said that was my other PC not the one you wanted Pro on. Did you buy Enterprise to ? Hoping that Ebay purchase is a legit key to.

    sorry if im making things unclear The pc i want pro on currently has enterprise. I haven't bought enterprise as it says in the windows popup "activate windows" and i couldn't find a key to buy so i could activate it. This is why i want to get pro as i have an activation key. Also the key from ebay has sold nearly 200 and ebay's money back guarantee covers it aswell as the seller which allows returns.
