    dual boot enterprise and pro versions of win 10 build 10162


    Im in the insider program and somehow ended up with the enterprise edition---I want to install the pro version --ideally dual boot ..

    What is the best way to do this? I am downloading new iso now.
    Can I run the setup from within win 10 and have option to install on different partiton? resulting in dual boot
    Or do i need to create boot disk from iso and install that way? In either case I want to end up dula boot so I Have time to migrate -reinstall my apps over from enterprise to pro version?

    or better yet anyway to overwrite enterprise with pro at the same time maintaining settings and apps?

    thanks

    Why would you want to dual boot? The enterprise and pro versions are identical, except Enterprise has a few more features. In other words, Enterprise has all that is in Pro... it makes no sense to dual boot.

    That makes no sense. You will still need the license if you're going to dual boot.
