    W8pro to W10pro.


    I have an available W8pro key, this comp was bought with 10Home installed. Is it possible to load 8pro then upgrade to 10pro?

    You can use the windows 10 Pro generic product key to trigger an upgrade to windows 10 Pro, the use the Windows 8 Pro product key to activate it.
