    No , I believe he's saying what you want to do

    Now you can upgrade Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro
    (thus recalling the prior Windows 10 Pro activation) that works..
    I may be getting it…! There’s an option to upgrade Windows, and it takes one to a “hidden” page in the Store, where it would recall the computer as already activated for Pro. Is that it? I’ve just read about this process someplace, have not been there myself.

    I assume you want to keep all you programs an files you have within windows 8.1 home OS..

    Thus the reason you want to upgrade in the first place...

    Your PC has already recorded a windows 10 pro activation - via insider preview..

    so the only other reason to upgrade 8.1 home to 10 home - is to get a Home activation recorded..

    you can test the Windows 10 Pro ISO to upgrade windows 8.1 home - but not designed to upgrade in that manner..
