    Hello roundabout, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You don't need to do all of that to downgrade from Enterprise to Pro.

    But it's not the full version of Enterprise I'm on. From what I understand my ONLY option is to do a fresh install of Pro.

    Am I missing something?

    To clarify, I was a hardened Windows Home Server user but when my system drive failed I couldn't successfully get the server to run properly even after restoring the good backup.

    I decided to check out whether Windows 10 would do what I needed so I grabbed the enterprise evaluation and that's what I've been running on for the past 5 days. I'm happy now that I can work with this as a long term solution so I'm looking to convert the evaluation to some form of full version by purchasing the necessary licence.

    What happens when you try the method in the tutorial to downgrade from Enterprise to Pro using a Pro product key?

    I've not bought the windows pro key as I wasn't sure if I would still be screwed if I went that route!

    Where's the best place to buy a windows 10 pro product key? A lot on ebay/amazon say that you need to download and install a fresh install and then activate it with their keys, concerned about getting a dodgy key that's of no use!

    Other than from a trusted retailer, the best and safest place would be directly from Microsoft.

    I'm pleased to report that all worked well and can confirm that my enterprise evaluation has now been converted to a full version of windows 10 pro with no loss of apps or files

    Hello,

    I am new member on Ten Forums and I am not experienced computer user

    I am trying to downgrade Win 10 Enterprise to Pro version. I got this computer from my friend's company and it has installed full Win 10 Enterprise version with original key. But I can't activate because I got communicate that I need to be connect with company network. I asked my friend and he told me that IT made mistake and I should have installed Pro version (I have a correct key). But when I am trying to change product key I got error 0x004f014. Do you know what can I do?

    I'll be gratefull for help.

    Hello Martin, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Did you mean error 0xC004F014 instead?

    Activation Error Codes for Volume Activation

    0xC004F014 - The Software Protection Service reported that the product key is not available - MAK/KMS client - No product keys are installed on the system.

    Troubleshooting steps - Install a MAK product key, or install a KMS Setup key found in \sources\Product.ini on the installation media.

    If you like, you could clean install to Windows 10 Pro, and activate with your Pro key.
