    Actually, you only need to change the product key to a Pro key to downgrade from Enterprise to Pro now. :)

    To be able to downgrade to Windows 10 Pro, you would need to have a Windows 10 Pro key. A Windows 8.1 Pro key wouldn't work.

    What does Showkey Plus show for Windows product keys (either installed or in UEFI firmware)?
    ShowKeyPlus - Windows 10 Forums

    Note: just click on the product keys to blank them out, then you can post the screenshot.

    If you have a Windows 8 Pro product key stored in UEFI, then you can just clean install Windows 10 Pro and it will activate itself based on the Windows 8 Pro product key stored in UEFI. Whatever version of Windows 8 product key is in UEFI (If there is one) - that same version of Windows 10 will pick it up and activate itself.

    I would try downgrading to Windows 10 Pro using the registry edits provided in post #2, then try to change the product key on the activation page under settings, Updates & Security to the Windows 8 Pro product key stored in UEFI given by Showkey Plus.
