    download w10 pro


    I'm using the microsoft downloader tool to make a disk of Windows 10. I want the pro version. It doesn't seem to offer that as an option before the download begins. How do I get the Pro version?

    Thanks.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    Most of the downloads I've used actually are dual system - they contain both Windows 10 Core, (home), and Windows 10 Pro
    Check the detailed description on the site

    Yeah, I checked the site and it doesn't make it clear. At the start of the download, it offers these options:
    Windows 10, Windows 10 Home Single Language, Windows 10 N


    No sign of pro, pre-download anyway.

    The windows 10 should contain both - the Single language is I believe Home only - the N is dual but without the media functionality , but not totally certain (my source lists Pro and Enterprise (no Home) ),

    check the size of the download - 3GB+ should be a single version with the dual being >4GB+

    will do. i think both are on the windows 10 one. if i want to install from a usb drive, do i have to make it a bootable drive somehow (some extra step), or will it automatically boot with the saved windows 10 I downloaded?

    The Microsoft Media Creation Tool offers two options to make the install media, to make a .iso file or to make a USB. The USB it makes is already bootable, see option One in the following tutorial. If you download the .iso you can make a bootable USB from it yourself, see option Two...
