How to Fix I am trying to upgrade from Windows 10 HOME to PRO with a Disc and License Key I purchased on Windows 10?

  1. Hi Lawrence ,

    What I suggest you for this issue is to contact Microsoft support they would validate the key and help you in upgrading from windows 10 Home to Pro or you can do a clean installation of windows 10 Pro and use the key. Preferred method is contacting Microsoft support because many a times the sellers sell counterfeit products everything seems legitimate in product packaging but the key would be for different version of windows

  3. If it is an OEM Pro licence then it will require a clean install I believe, you cannot use it to upgrade.
