    Help I installed HOME instead of PRO - can I update without re-install


    Hi there

    I installed HOME instead of PRO by mistake on clean re-install
    Can I upgrade to PRO without doing another clean install --I have a digital entitlement for it.

    My error at the install prompt --I always tell other to READ the screen prompts when installing anything -- I've fallen into my own trap.

    !!!

    I need PRO --Language packs, RDP remote server and HYPER-V. Otherwise I would just leave it.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    @Brink

    Thanks Shawn
    Entered the default key (it wanted a key) and then installed OK. On Boot Activated OK.

    Thanks

    I didn't fancy re-installing a whole slew of stuff again --Had some VM's and whatever -- I inly noticed when I couldn't find HYPER-V or get RDP working as well as problems with Language pack installs.

    Cheers
    and thanks. !!
