    OK, but how do I select Pro?

    Also, I tried to confirm the version using the tip here:ISO - See what Language, Edition, and Architecture of Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    and got Error 11 - incorrect format
    The Windows 10 option is for both Home and Pro. Your digital entitlement or product key is what determines which one gets installed from ISO or USB during Windows Setup.

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing your command prompt in that tutorial.

    Be sure that you're using the correct drive letter, and you may have to try the other command with .esd or .wim.

    So if I want to do a fresh install (not upgrade), and I wait tunitl after the install is complete to enter my Win7 key, how does it know to make a WinPro version?

    If you skip entering the key during Windows Setup, then you'll have an option like in step 8 below to select Home or Pro to install.

    I have not dealt with devices having UEFI, so far I have used the devices which use Legacy BIOS.
    But buying a new hpac024tx Laptop gives me to select either Legacy BIOS and UEFI, as I see.
    I have Legacy BIOS enabled as of now, and want to switch to UEFI.Currently it has Windows 10 running, which is a retail version.The Laptop shipped with DOS though
    After disabling legacy support from BIOS, it switches to EFI as far as I know.
    But after the restart when EFI enables, it shows OS not found.
    Disabling the UEFI and enabling Legacy BIOS boots perfectly to the Windows desktop.
    So, I wanted to know, how can I enable UEFI without having to reinstall OS again.
    Thanks in Advance.

    @Sumitdhiman Personally, I would back up data and re-install UEFI/GPT, but maybe this at TechNet can get you in the right direction: Converting Windows BIOS installation to UEFI - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki

    Hello Sumitdhiman,

    After looking at the steps there, you might consider just doing a clean install of Windows 10 with UEFI instead since those steps will wipe your drive anyways.

    If done correctly, I don't see any steps in that tutorial that would wipe the drive - since a third party application is used to convert from MBR to GPT.
