    The evaluation version is not able to be downgraded, unless Microsoft has changed it's long running policy - The evaluation runs for 90 days then times out - the only specified method to downgrade from an enterprise evaluation is by full reinstall to an empty partition

    You may want to follow the route here, From Earlier in this thread if you have already purchased a new Pro Licence and want to retain data and applications

    My Win10 enterprise edition deactivated a few days ago and wasn't able to be reactivated.

    I downgraded to Win10 Pro with the generic key from step 1 and it activated automatically using the embedded 8.1Pro key in my BIOS.

    This fix was so simple. Thanks a lot.

    Downgrade with generic key VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T


    I am surprised to read, that this key still works for you. When I bought a new (OEM) license recently I had to use first a generic key. So I used VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T, but this key was rejected. The dealer, were I had bought the license said that the mentioned generic key had been obsoleted and that I should use following generic key: TWQF8-NT9Q2-6YYVB-KP9PP-V8RC6. And indeed this key was accepted.
    The same happened when today I wanted to downgrade from Win 10 Enterprise to Win 10 Pro. The first key above was not accepted but the second key (TWQF8.....) was accepted upon which the downgrade to WIN 10 Pro immediately took place. (I had already an electronic Licence for Win 10 Pro)

    I hope this info may be useful in case someone has similar problems with the generic key. Thanks anyway for the very useful tip on how to easily downgrade from Win 10 enterprise to Win 10 pro.
