[SOLVED] installing Windows 10 Pro on new pc


Mar 19, 2021

What do I have to do in order to install Windows 10 Pro on my new pc build?

I have a retail version of Windows 10 Pro installed on one pc. I built a new pc and want to install Windows 10 Pro on it. I followed the steps listed at MS web site to install Windows 10 on a new PC using USB drive and noticed that it installed Windows 10 Home edition on the new pc, not Windows 10 Pro. I don't remember being asked if I wanted to install Windows 10 Pro. I have the product key but do not know if that will force the Windows 10 Home Edition to convert to Windows 10 Pro.

Thanks, John
