    Can i change the installed version without complete re-install?


    So I have had a mong moment!!!!
    I just downloaded the iso to do a clean install to a new HDD and, for reasons unknown, I had a brain fart and installed home instead of pro.

    Is there a way to upgrade the install to Pro, or is it easier to start again with ANOTHER clean install?

    Thanks in advance

    MONG BOY

    Ok, forget my last, Just went to the activation tab and also found my original windows 8 key and BINGO, it will upgrade itself.

    I apologise for being the village idiot.
