    Anyone else here on this thread got network browsing issues after 586? net view gives error 1231 and machines are MIA.
    Not that I know of? I did clean installs not upgrades.

    No problems here on both my machines, and I did NOT do a clean install either.

    When you do a clean install of "Anything" that will be the OS that goes on! The eprom info only determines the Digital entitlement when the exact same Home to Home upgrade is seen not when putting on a fresh copy of the Pro edition. Since a retail key for Pro was bought that will need be entered immediately or once at the desktop to see the fresh Pro install activate.
    That would be incorrect for build 10586. Both alphanumeric (post #480) and I have real world experience. If there is a Windows 8 product key in bios, build 10586 will read the key during a clean install and not even ask you what version you want or to manually enter a product key.

    What happens with a single edition setup iso, say Pro on an OEM Home PC is started. What if there is a PID.txt Inserted in Sources?

    Priority is PID.txt > bios > entered key (only asks if others not found)

    Pro only will reject the Core key and ask for one. The Windows 8/8.1 ones did anyway. I use a PID.txt with the Pro generic key on my Windows 10 install media so I don't have to select Pro or have to click skip when asked for a key. Have been for a while. All my PC's have digital entitlement for 10 Pro. Pro is installed with no prompt to select and no prompt for a key. They activate with the digital entitlement they had too. I didn't on my last install just to actually see what happens with stock unmodified install media.

    And I can back that up because I had OEM Windows 8.1 Core (Home) on this machine, upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro and when I clean installed Build 10586, it sent me back "Home". I followed Alpha's (I think it was him) instructions and got to Pro where I should have been.

    Yeah, it was probably me. If you do a change product key and enter the generic Pro key, VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T. It will upgrade to Pro and reboot. Then it checks activation. If that PC has a digital entitlement for Pro it will activate. If it doesn't it won't. It's the equivalent of the Windows 8 add features/ Windows 7 anytime upgrade. Just kind of hidden on you. Entering a Pro retail key would work too. You can also enter an Enterprise key or Education key and upgrade to those versions too. Assuming you have legitimate genuine keys.

    Got new Cumulative too, Now it's 10586.14. That might have been the trigger they pulled update for.
