    starting a clean install pro or home


    my upgrade was home but with having a million issues decided to run a clean install now it asks pro or home? Do i have to use home or can i switch to pro with automatic activation from the upgrade?

    If you upgraded as Home, that's what you have a digital entitlement for, i.e., that's all that will activate for clean install. No free upgrade from Home to Pro.
