    Upgrading to Pro but it says Home on install wizard


    Bought a W10 Pro licence yesterday to upgrade from W10 Home. Just running the install wizard and i'm getting:

    "Ready to install. To recap you've chosen to install Windows 10 Home."

    Just a text error do we think or something more sinister? I don't want to go through the whole process only to replace Home with Home!

    You can download ShowKeyPlus from here Showkey - Windows 10 Forums and use it to check the key is indeed for Pro.

    Thanks, that certainly seems to say it's a Pro licence. Just trying to chat to MS support too.

    I've not upgraded, always had Pro from the start, but I thought you just put the key as described here Upgrade Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro - Windows 10 Forums rather than have to install anything.

    Yes, it would seem I did it wrong. They're refunding me the big licence fee I paid yesterday and i'm just about to start the (easy) upgrade now.

    Sorry to have wasted your time today but thank you for your help.

    Certainly not a waste of time if you got refunded
